Users will find curved, comfy edges and no wasted space. It’s got larger keycaps and a new capacitive touch experience to switch between media and function keys easily. A new seamless glass touchpad that provides haptic responses replaces a traditional trackpad. https://youtu.be/zq_GgOGAyCo The company’s mindful minimalist approach extends beyond design to encompass both the production and packaging process. By removing steps and reducing finishes and materials – but elevating the ones that remain – they’ve decreased scrapped parts and their 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, powered by Windows 11, is designed to a 12th Gen Intel Core 28W processor (improved from 15W on prior generations), supported by larger fans that provide 55% better airflow without increasing noise or temperature. With leading battery technology, you can go the distance without disruptions. Express Charge 2.0 gets your laptop to about 80% battery life in less than an hour.
