Dell brings the XPS 13 Plus to South Africa

The new XPS 13 Plus is the most powerful yet, inspired by Gen-Z – a group that knows who they are, where they want to go and demands the horsepower they need to get there.

The XPS 13 Plus is the first XPS 13 designed with a 12th Gen Intel Core 28W processor (up from 15W on the prior gen), supported by larger fans that provide 55% better airflow without increasing noise or temperature. It allows more power, without weighing you down.

Simplified interiors make your creative experience the focus, with best-in-class edge-to-edge displays that bring your visions to life. Additionally, leading battery technology makes sure you can go the distance without disruptions. Express Charge 2.0 gets your laptop to about 80% battery life in less than an hour.

The XPS 13 Plus is designed to be minimalist and modern. The sleek keyboard, function row, touchpad and palm rest deliver a clean, iconic appearance that is light to the touch and complemented by curved, comfy edges throughout. There’s no wasted space – the modern, edge-to-edge interfaces simplify the overall design to deliver a clean, harmonious surface.

The XPS 13 Plus has eliminated distractions by creating cohesive tone-on-tone design details for a unified appearance. The overall experience is a modern aesthetic that is intentionally crafted to emanate the pinnacle of simplicity.

Designed with larger keycaps (also known as zero-lattice), the keyboard is comfortable, smooth and efficient with every keystroke. The top row of the keyboard is now cleaner, thanks to a new capacitive touch experience that allows you to switch between media and function keys easily. The traditional trackpad has been replaced by a seamless glass touchpad that provides haptic responses to the touch.

Both sight and sound have been enhanced in the new XPS 13 Plus. There is up to 4K+ resolution or vivid true-to-life color on an OLED display with Eyesafe that reduces harmful blue light. The pioneering 4-sided InfinityEdge display continues to deliver a virtually borderless viewing experience and the number of layers has been reduced from the display screen to improve clarity and reduce weight. When it comes to creating your own content or consuming the content you love, enjoy louder sound and broad dynamic range with an improved quad speaker design. Two up-firing speakers are hidden underneath the keyboard, while down-firing speakers are on the base, resulting in incredible sound for music, movies and conferencing.

This is the first XPS made using hydro-power renewable energy sources, significantly reducing the carbon footprint of the aluminum and is 100% recyclable so it can be reused in new PCs, delivering on Dell’s 2030 Goals. Our mindful minimalist approach extends beyond design to encompass both production and packaging process. We’ve created a simpler, more efficient manufacturing process that honors our longstanding commitment to be kind to the environment. By removing steps and reducing finishes and materials – but elevating the ones that remain – we’ve decreased scrapped parts and our overall carbon footprint. All-new packaging is made from 100% sustainably sourced or renewable materials with paper documentation that increases its recyclability.

The XPS 13 Plus is a device for both the consumer and the commercial market in South Africa. The offering for commercial includes both Pro Support Plus and hardware security. Please reach out to a Dell reseller or Dell directly for more information on the commercial offering.
