    Seems to be interesting based on the initial reviews I could find. Looks like the firestrike score is better than my 9560: https://www.digitaltrends.com/laptop-reviews/dell-xps-15-2-in-1-review/

    HP also has their x360 listed. It's quite a bit cheaper than the Dell, I can get an i7/4k/8gb for 1415. I'll probably just wait till the xps is in the outlet though and see if I can score one for ~1000. I could do that and sell my 9560 as well as my inspiron 2-in-1.

    If you are planning on the 15 2 in 1 soon, let me know how you like it. I am waiting until I can get 32gb of ram in mine.

    Sadly it won't be until they are more affordable. Even with my military discount and 17% off coupon it's still ~1550 after taxes for the 16gb/i7 model. That's crazy talk to me.

    Are you in the USA? I am seeing the prices nearly the same... excluding coupons and such. Well I guess if you go 4k vs FHD on the dell that is.

    Yes, in the US. This is what I was looking at getting. These are the specs for the Spectre x360 for $1,739.99. The same specs for the Dell is $2,409.99, except you don't get the free pen and the battery is smaller at 75 WHr.

    512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD
    Windows 10 Pro 64
    6-cell, 84 WHr Lithium-ion Battery
    Intel® Core™ i7-8705G (3.1 GHz, up to 4.1 GHz, 8MB cache, 4 cores) + Radeon™ RX Vega M Graphics (4GB dedicated memory)
    Full-size island-style backlit keyboard with integrated numeric keypad (Dark Ash Silver)
    15.6" diagonal 4K IPS micro-edge BrightView WLED-backlit touch screen with Corning® Gorilla® Glass (3840 x 2160)
    16 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (2x8GB)

    Ha ha, My system with only 16gb is 3300 cdn. I am waiting until the 32gb version so I am guessing 3500.00 Worth it to me since I use it ALOT and the extra power over my system now would be welcome for speed of doing things.

    Yeah our priorities are different. That's almost as much as my 12 core desktop cost with 8x8tb hard drives...

    Oh, I know I can get a kickass full desktop. I travel alot, and I use my laptop as my desktop when home/design center. So, having the most powerful laptop and also having 2 in 1 / pen is very important.
