The Dell XPS 13 Plus is a futuristic laptop that combines the most modern aspects of laptop design into a single PC. Its edge-to-edge keyboard, slim bezels, and unique touchpad come together to create a laptop experience that you won't get from any other manufacturer. And right now, you can get the beautiful laptop at a price that seems too good to be true.

The Dell XPS 13 Plus is on sale for a $750 discount through Best Buy, which brings its price down to $1,100. For that price, you get a 12th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of memory, and 512 GB of storage. These are almost exactly the same specifications as the model we used in our Dell XPS 13 Plus review.
That means that whether you want the modern XPS 13 Plus or the traditional XPS 13, Dell has you covered. But for now, we're focusing on the big thing about the XPS 13 Plus.
Fortunately, Dell did not replace its classic XPS 13 with the XPS 13 Plus. Both are available, although the traditional XPS 13 has not been updated with Intel's 13th-generation processors, at least not yet. The XPS 13 Plus was only updated with Intel's 13th-generation processors earlier this month.
Dell's flagship XPS Ultrabooks have consistently ranked among the best Windows laptops. When Dell introduced the XPS 13 Plus, it divided opinions a bit. The radically redesigned PC features a futuristic design with a unibody keyboard, an invisible haptic touchpad, and a row of LED function keys. It looks a bit like what you would expect from an XPS 13 in 2025.
Our editor Daniel Rubino really liked the XPS 13 Plus, especially its looks and design.
"The Dell XPS 13 Plus, like previous XPS 13 laptops, has once again raised the bar when it comes to design. You can't help it, and you can't deny it," said Rubino.
"And while some people are concerned about the usability of those function keys, the keyboard and touchpad, they seem to be of my utility. Real function keys would be better, but the keyboard and touchpad are exceptional. Dell put a lot of design thought into them (since around 2018), and it shows."
