沙巴体育平台 www.yousuperb.com Being one of Intel’s key partners, Dell is usually among the first PC makers to start selling computers based on the latest processors from the developer. On Thursday the company began to take orders for its new XPS 13 2-in-1 model 7390 convertible laptop, which is powered by Intel’s "Ice Lake" 10th Generation Core processors. With shipping dates listed for early September, it looks like Intel and its OEM partners will not only meet their "holiday 2019" commitment for Ice Lake, but will be able to get machines into consumers' hands before the summer is even out.

Re-engineered both inside and outside, the latest XPS 13 7390-series 2-in-1 convertibles come in a CNC-machined silver or black aluminum body that features either a fiber composite arctic white woven glass fiber palm rest. The notebooks are equipped with a custom 13.4-inch display panel with InfinityEdge bezels that is 7% larger than on the previous-generation model. The LCD panels feature a 1920×1200 or 3840×2400 resolution, 500 nits brightness, a 1500:1 or 1800:1 contrast ratio, a 16:10 aspect ratio, wide viewing angles as well as Dolby Vision on the FHD+ or 90% DCI-P3 on the UHD+ SKU.

At the heart of the new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390-series convertible notebook are Intel’s Ice Lake-based 10th Gen Core i3/i5/i7 processors. Interestingly, Dell is only offering a single CPU with a better than UHD Graphics (32 EUs) configuration, with that being the Iris Plus (64 EU) i7-1065G7. The only i5 Dell offers is the i5-1035G1, which is the lowest-end i5, and the only way to get better graphics on XPS models that don't ship with the i7 by default is to pay a further $250 premium to upgrade to an i7.

Moving on, in terms of construction, these new Ice Lake processors are installed onto a more compact motherboard that allowed Dell to make the laptop 7% thinner while making the keyboard and the screen larger. The CPUs are cooled down using a brand-new cooling system that is comprised of two fans, an ultra-thin vapor chamber, and GORE thermal insulation to guarantee consistent performance even under high loads.

The Ice Lake processors inside the XPS 13 2-in-1 7390-series hybrid notebooks are paired with up to 32 GB of soldered-down LPDDR4X-3733 memory as well as a PCIe SSD of up to 1 TB capacity. As for connectivity, the XPS 13 2-in-1 7390-series features a Killer AX1650 Wi-Fi 6 + Bluetooth controller, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a microSD card reader, a 3.5-mm jack for headsets, and other options. When it comes to multimedia capabilities, the new convertible has speakers, a microphone array, and a webcam (which is now located on top of the LCD).

Being very portable, the new laptop features a 7 – 13 mm z-height and weight starting at 1.32 kilograms (2.9 pounds). Meanwhile, the 2019 Dell XPS 13 7390-series 2-in-1 hybrid notebook comes with a 51 Wh battery that promises to last for up to 16 hours (real-world battery life will depend on the usage model, of course).

Dell’s XPS 7390-series 2-in-1 convertible notebooks are available starting at $999.99 for an entry-level SKU and going up for higher-end models.

    4 GB of RAM on an ultrabook costing a grand in 2019 ? WTF !!?? Reply

    Yeah Apple gets a lot of bad press for this (as they should) but others like Dell and Microsoft do it as well. The base models just shouldn't be offered with those specs. Reply

    Apple does not sell a single laptop with less than 8 GB of base RAM. Reply

    this laptop starts with the useless G1 version of the i5, and 4GB or ram, lol... nice joke Intel Reply
  • Alistair - Thursday, August 08, 2019 - link

    oops Dell starts with the i3 G1 hahahahahahhahahaha... anyone not being an idiot should buy a 6 core laptop instead for the same money Reply

    6-core is a waste for most users of ultraportables. Browsers run fine even on dual cores (but a quadcore is probably optimal when buying now). At least 8 GB of memory is much more important, as well as better GPU. Reply

    A 6 core lightweight 15 inch laptop is $800. Ultraportable 6 core is $1900 (Lenovo) or $2400 (Apple). Reply

    Are there good laptops with more than 8GB RAM around $1000? I'm looking for one but either they're too expensive or they are at 8 GB RAM. I was looking at 16 GB and hopefully a 512 GB SSD, can stretch to $1200 maybe but not beyond that Reply

    "Good" is certainly subjective, but HP has one with 12 GB in that price range with a 512 GB SSD.

    HP's Pavilion line is awful. I'd go for at least an Envy. Reply
