But with so many sizes and configurations on offer, knowing which is right for you is tricky.

It's certainly not unusual to see big tech companies claim various unique achievements, firsts and records for new products unveiled at major trade shows like CES, but whether or not the Dell XPS 15 is one-of-a-kind, its state-of-the-art features can not be ignored. The XPS 13 is aimed at traditional office workers, prosumers and hardware fanatics looking for a compact but powerful laptop.

Alongside the refreshed Latitude lines, Dell has the new portable SSD that comes in two models - Dell SD1-T0500 with 500GB and Dell SD1-T1000 with 1TB storage. The convertible design makes it far more focused at creatives and gamers looking for an all-in-one device that can be used for everything from design work to AAA 1080p gaming. Specifically you'll be able to get the two with either 8GB of 16GB of DRAM. There are storage options including up to 1TB HD or a hybrid drive as well as M.2 SSD and 1TB PCIe/NVMe drive.

The key difference between the two stems from their differing CPUs and graphics. Customers will have a choice to purchase a version with the 8th Gen Intel Quad Core i5-8305G or the 8th Gen Intel Quad Core i7-8705G. Both use Intel's own integrated graphics. Inside are 8th-generation Intel CPUs, and each model comes with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics with 4GB of high bandwidth memory.

That lets you have an even thinner keyboard.

Much of the XPS 15 remains the same with this year's update, though.

But that's because the XPS 15 2-in-1 is a lot thinner than its sibling. It's not uncommon for a manufacturer to charge extra for a stylus, but some companies like HP include a stylus in the box with their convertibles (HP packages one with the Spectre x360 15, a similarly sized and priced convertible to Dell's new device).

The next-generation InfinityEdge display with edge-to-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 4 benefits from 100% Adobe RGB color spectrum and the new Dell Cinema software suite that aims at enhancing the entertainment experience. Secondly, the 7390 and 7490 will have anti-glare matte touchscreen options for business users who may want touch features without the distracting glare that often come with touch-enabled panels. The 15 will only have touchscreen options and uses a larger 15.6-inch panel. At just 0.35 ~ 0.63 inches (9 ~ 16 mm) thin and 13.9 inches (354mm) wide, Dell may hold onto that claim for some time.

The high-quality high-resolution display combined with the strong GPU performance makes the XPS 15 2-in-1 the flawless mobile computing machine for creatives.

Ring adds more camera and light options to its home security line
The Stick Up Cam is weatherproof, battery-powered, and has Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) motion sensors with zone detection. Both cameras can be used inside or out, feature 1080p HD video, two-way audio, and offer motion detection features.

Dell hasn't disclosed the price and release date of the XPS 15 2-in-1, and until we see a full spec sheet we can't sensibly guess a ballpark figure. Worldwide details have not been announced yet, but that works out to about £960 or AU$1,650.

It's this editor's personal preference to avoid most 15-inch laptops on account of their size, but the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 may very well change that.
