https://safirsoft.com The Dell XPS 13 Plus adds touch bar-style capacitors and the touchpad and removes the headphone jack.
Why it matters: The Dell XPS 13 has long been considered the ultimate portable Windows device due to its combination of chassis, battery, power, and display. The company unveiled its latest version of its laptop at CES, with a surprising change: The functional row of keys has been replaced by tiny LED buttons on a flat bar, unlike the touch bar that Apple recently removed from the MacBook Pro. .

The Dell XPS 13 has long been known as the "Best Ultra Portable" along with the 13-inch MacBook Pro in the Best Laptops Guide. It's often praised for its design, which is thought to be less elegant, but the Dell XPS 13 Plus shows it can be done - but is it so elegant?

The first thing you might notice in the new release model is that Dell has removed all the space between the keyboard keys. This might not sound like much, but doing so made each key a little larger (the keyboard reaches the edges of the chassis), and the company says they still have the same 1mm of pitch as last year.

But the most obvious difference is that Dell has replaced the Laptop Performance Row with the Capacitive touch Performance Row. Despite the obvious comparison, Dell insists that this is not a version of Apple's touch Bar, as both have fixed functions such as brightness and volume, although users can switch between the function and media keys. Dell also claims that removing the function keys allows for improved thermal heating.

Pillow cracking is different, too. Now, borderless and invisible under the glass at the bottom of the keyboard, Dell calls them "liver tweezers" that don't push pressure but reproduce the sensation of touch, just like the MacBook's touchpads.

The last notable design change is the removal of the headphone jack. Dell thinks this gives the XPS 13 Plus a simpler design, but it's hard to imagine anyone happy with the decision.

In terms of hardware, the Dell XPS 13 Plus has a choice of OLED and LCD screens, 12th generation Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 32GB of RAM, up to 2TB of storage, four speakers, A single 4K touchscreen display, and like the previous model, ports are limited to two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports. It's great to be indifferent to someone who calls it "fashionable mess." We'll find out when it arrives in spring, starting at $1,199.
