Dell XPS 13 Plus laptop announced with Touch Bar and Force Touch

Dell at CES 2022 in Las Vegas unveiled a laptop with analogs of the Touch Bar and Force Touch. The model is called Dell XPS 13 Plus.

What kind of fruit

The novelty has many differences from its predecessors. The emergence of a touchpad with tactile feedback function keys in the touchpad is one of them. The laptop has a full-width scissor keyboard. The top row is touchscreen. If desired, the F1-F12 buttons can be replaced with function keys for adjusting volume, brightness, etc.

At first glance, it may seem that the Dell XPS 13 Plus has forgotten to add a touchpad. But he is present and even reacts to touch. The thing is that the touch panel merges with the body and does not stand out in any way. Completing the theme of the exterior, we note the reduction of the hinge and the absence of a headphone jack.

The laptop is equipped with the latest generation Intel Core chip. There are a choice of Core i5-1240P and Core i7-1270P models, built on the Alder Lake architecture. In the maximum modification, the novelty is equipped with 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 2 TB SSD. There is no discrete graphics - only Intel Iris Xe.

The screen in Dell XPS 13 Plus has a diagonal of 13.4 "and is built on the basis of an OLED matrix. There are versions with touch controls. The resolution is 1920 x 1200 pixels or 3840 x 2400 pixels, depending on the configuration. Among other things, we note a 55 W * h battery, two USB-C with Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E / Bluetooth 5.2.


Dell XPS 13 Plus will go on sale in the spring at a price of $ 1,200. Customers will be available as versions with Windows 11 Home or Pro, and with Ubuntu 20.04.
