The recently unveiled Dell XPS 13 Plus is set to arrive in Malaysia later this year in March 2022. Redesigned from the ground up, the new ultraportable features a sleeker, cleaner-looking design, though not necessarily more practical.
On the outside, the XPS 13 Plus doesn’t look all that different from its predecessor, but it’s almost a completely different laptop on the inside. Gone are the physical function keys in favour of capacitive keys (almost like Apple’s Touch Bar), and the trackpad has been replaced with a “seamless glass touchpad” that provides haptic feedback.
Also redesigned is the keyboard of the XPS 13 Plus. The keys are now larger, and they still provide the same 1mm of travel as the previous model. All in all, these changes make for a clean-looking laptop, though not knowing where the trackpad is and having to use capacitive keys instead of physical ones for the function row may be cumbersome.
Anyway, other specifications of the XPS 13 Plus include Intel’s latest 12th gen Alder Lake processors (maxes out at a Core i7-1280P), a 13.4-inch 16:10 InfinityEdge display – configurable with an OLED or LCD panel up to 4K resolution – up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of PCIe Gen4 SSD, as well as a 55Wh battery.
The Dell XPS 13 Plus is set to arrive here in Malaysia sometime in March 2022. Once it’s available here, it can be purchased on Dell’s Malaysian online store.
