The Morning After: Dell updates its XPS laptops

Spread the love

Last year's Dell XPS 13 Plus was slightly different from the XPS laptops that came before it. But the company seemed to like it, as it has now revamped the rest of the XPS line to match. Yes, CES 2024 hasn't even had its press days yet, let alone started in earnest, but Dell is busy.

The new XPS 13, 14, and 16 laptops all feature the XPS 13 Plus' glass wrist rest, which hides an invisible haptic touchpad. They also contain tactile function buttons above the keyboard and larger keys for easier typing. These laptop keyboards are also among the first to benefit from this spicy new version. Co-pilot key.

This new XPS line will be available soon, with the XPS 13 starting at $1,300, the XPS 14 at $1,700, and the XPS 16 at $1,900. Read our first impressions here.
