According to the manufacturer, this new notebook is the company’s most powerful device to date.

The latest Dell XPS 13 comes with the Plus suffix, and its full name has become Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320. The standard, simple XPS series laptop weighs only 1.3 kg and is 15 mm thick, and the special feature is that the palm rest is made of glass. The frame itself is made of aluminum, of course, so you don’t have to let the pressure go on the glass. The new design also means a modification of the keyboard and touchpad, the most important change in the latter is the Fn font, which has been replaced by a touch-sensitive font. This is mainly due to cooling, which the manufacturer said will leave more room for the cooling system. Another new innovation for input devices is the “ForcePad” touchpad, which is embedded in the glass palm rest, so it has a “virtual” frame.
Below all this, of course, we’ll find the components that will be mandatory in 2022: an Alder Lake-P processor with a 28W TPD (the top is a Core i7-1280P), 32GB of DDR5-5200 memory, a 2TB SSD, and a 55W battery. The screen offers a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels at worst, 500-bit maximum brightness, and 100% sRGB, but an optional OL56 panel with 3456 x 2160 pixels (DisplayHDR 500, 100% DCI-P3 and Gorilla Glass 7) and 3840 x 2000 pixel screen with DisplayHDR 400, 90% DCI-P3.
Where the XPS 13 Plus might feel cramped is the range of connectors available, as there are only two Thunderbolt 4 ports in this area, and even a 3.5mm jack is missing. The availability of development in Hungary is to be expected in the second quarter.
