Dell’s new XPS 13 Plus should convince with a minimalist design and strong specifications. The invisible trackpad and the wide keyboard catch the eye, and a 13th generation Intel Core i7 works under the hood.
With the XPS 13 Plus, Dell has presented a new compact notebook that is supposed to take on the role of the flagship among Dell’s 13-inch devices. The model is powered by a 13th generation Intel Core i7 processor. According to the manufacturer, it has up to 32 gigabytes of DDR5 RAM. Dell SSDs offer up to 2 terabytes of storage.
In terms of display technology, a quasi-frameless “InfinityEdge” design is used – a 13.4-inch panel with 4k resolution. Dell specifies a series-wide luminance of 500 nits. In addition to the standard LCD panel, the manufacturer also offers an OLED version and an optional touch function for both display types.

However, what makes Dell particularly stand out is the design of the XPS 13 Plus. A slim case made of milled aluminum (1.53 centimeters high) should draw attention, as well as an invisible trackpad. Dell puts the weight of the XPS 13 Plus at 1.23 to 1.26 kilos, depending on the configuration.
The XPS 13 Plus is available in platinum and graphite gray and costs CHF 1748.99 (RRP).
In March, Dell introduced the current XPS lineup of larger laptops, which is now joined by the XPS 13 Plus. All information about the series can be found here.
