The Dell XPS 13 Plus is a thin and light laptop with an unusual design that features a borderless keyboard, a virtually invisible trackpad, and capacitive Fn-Touch buttons that disappear when you’re not using them.

Dell released the first version of this laptop about a year ago when it was available with a 12th Gen Intel Core processor. Now the company is selling a new model powered by a 13th generation chip. It’s available now for $1399 and up.

For the starting price, you get a model with an Intel Core i7-1360P processor, 16GB of LPDDR5-6000 storage, a 512GB SSD, and a non-touch FHD+ display. But you can also pay more for a different display. Here are the starting prices for Core i7/16GB/512GB models:

  • 1920 x 1200 pixel touchless LCD display for $1399
  • 1920 x 1200 pixel LCD touchscreen display for $1499
  • 3456 x 2160 pixel OLED touchscreen display for $1699
  • 2840 x 2400 pixel LCD touchscreen display for $1699

Dell also lets you configure the laptop with up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of storage, with a top-of-the-line model costing $2149.

All models measure approximately 295 x 199 x 15 mm (11.6″ x 7.8″ x 0.6″) and models with FHD+ displays weigh 1.23 kg (2.71 pounds) while models with OLED screens weigh 1.26 kg (2.77 pounds).

The laptop packs a 55Wh battery and comes with a 60W USB Type-C power adapter. And while the XPS 13 Plus only has two ports, both are fully functional Thunderbolt 4 ports with support for charging and power delivery. Dell also includes a USB-A and 3.5mm audio adapter with the purchase of the notebook.

Other features include 2W stereo speakers. a 720p webcam with IR support for facial recognition, a backlit keyboard and an aluminum body.

Currently, the only model Dell offers with a 13th Gen Intel Core processor comes with a Core i7 chip and Windows 11 Home or Pro software. However, last year’s model was available with an Intel Core i5 processor, and Dell also offered an XPS 13 Plus Developer Edition model that shipped with Ubuntu Linux. So it’s possible that we’ll see cheaper models with Core i5 chips in the future, as well as Ubuntu models of the new XPS 13 Plus.

In the meantime, bargain hunters might be interested to know that you can currently pick up the previous-gen XPS 13 Plus with an Intel Core i5-1240P processor for $899, which is the lowest price I’ve seen so far. Unfortunately, you only get 8 GB of non-expandable LPDDR5-5200 memory and a 512 GB PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD for your money.
