Dell Australia Now Has Local Pricing, Availability For The XPS 13 2-In-1

We had a close look at Dell's new "2-in-1" 13-inch XPS notebook a few days ago. It's mostly the same as Dell's standard XPS 13, with the biggest difference being its ability to become a tablet. Previously, only US pricing was available, but now the product is up on Dell's Australian site and well, the mark-up isn't pretty.

Going from Dell's site, the basic 1080p unit isn't available, with the three options on offer packing the 3200 x 1800 QHD+ screen. The cheapest device, which comes with the Core i5-7Y54, is $2299 -- a far sight more expensive than the $US1199 ($1644) from CES.

Moving up, the usual suspects -- CPU, RAM and SSD -- are upgraded. Here's a table with the details:

XPS 13 2-In-1 - $2299 XPS 13 2-In-1 - $2599 XPS 13 2-In-1 - $2798
8GB LPDDR3 1866MHz 8GB LPDDR3 1866MHz 16GB LPDDR3 1866MHz
Core i5-7Y54 (4M cache, up to 3.2 GHz) Core i7-7Y75 (4M cache, up to 3.6 GHz) Core i7-7Y75 (4M cache, up to 3.6 GHz)

Whether or not the convertibility is enough to justify the price tag is up to you. Compared to the standard XPS 13, you'll be paying around $300-$400 for the privilege (and the QHD+ screen).

    $2299 — a far sight more expensive than the $US1199 ($1644)

    When making comparisons, can you please make it accurate, or at least be clear that the US price does not include sales tax as that is a state based variable. So right this second it is equivalent to Au $1806 inc sales tax.

      don't forget 15% (gst + import duties) - $2076
      getting closer.

        Thanks, I was unaware of import duties on electronics. Are they really 15%? That seems extreme considering the slash most had years a ago, or it is 5%? Gov website, of little help in

          no its 5% but you gotta pay 10% gst so 15% total haha. I also think there is yet another handling charge for customs. Moral of the story, try and get it declared under $1000 and pray they miss it lol

            Right, 5% makes sense, so add GST to that and it's 15.5% in total extra.

    Wow pretty bonkers prices considering dell do an 11" 2in1 with i3 4gb 128gb for $680.

    ... the biggest difference being its ability to become a tablet I'd suggest the biggest difference is that these machines run Core M, the XPS 13 laptop runs Core i. For that reason, I would expect these to be cheaper than the laptop version, not hundreds of dollars more.
