The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is quite a radical change compared to previous models and some of the other best Dell laptops and Windows tablets. Instead of a 360-degree hinge design, this is now a tablet, which makes it smaller and lighter than ever. However, this is still very much a premium device, and it's going to cost you a pretty penny, so investing in some protection is definitely worth it. To help with that, we've rounded up some of the best cases you can buy for the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1.

Because it's a tablet, it probably makes more sense to go with a case that pairs well with the portability of that form factor, so a thin sleeve is the way to go for many. We'll try to focus on more of those, though we'll also have some larger ones if you want thicker protection or space for accessories.
