Laptop computers, also known as notebook computers, are portable computers that can be used anywhere.
They consist of a screen, a keyboard, and a trackpad or trackball that serves as a mouse. Laptops have a battery that allows them to operate without being plugged into a power outlet because they are designed to be used on the go.
Laptops also come with a power adapter, which allows them to use power from an outlet while also charging the battery.
While laptops can be powerful and convenient, that convenience frequently comes at a cost. Most laptops are several hundred dollars more expensive than a comparable desktop model with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Working long hours on a laptop with a small screen and keyboard may also be more tiring than working on a desktop system. As a result, if portability is not a requirement for your computer, a desktop model may provide better value.
In Nepal, Dell has released the XPS 13 Plus (9320) ultrabook. The slim machine comes with impressive specs like a 3.5K OLED panel, a 12th generation Intel i7 CPU, and more.
So, without further ado, here are the specifications, features, availability, and official price of the Dell XPS 13 (9320) in Nepal.
For the XPS 13 Plus (9320), Dell offers three processor options: Core i5-1240P, i7-1260P, and i7-1280P. In Nepal, however, only the Core i7-1260P is currently available.
It has a 12-core CPU with a clock speed of up to 4.70GHz and an L3 cache of 18MB. It also has its own Intel Iris Xe graphics chip. The processor is paired with 16GB of dual channel LPDDR5 RAM and up to 1TB of M.2 PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD.
There are only two ports in the area. On each side of the laptop, there is a Thunderbolt 4 (USB Type-C with DisplayPort and Power Delivery) port.
The company has included a USB-C to 3.5mm headset and a USB-C to USB-A 3.0 adapter in the box to compensate for the lack of connectivity options.
Moving on, the XPS 13 Plus is powered by a 55WHr battery. Thanks to Express Charge technology, this 3-cell battery can be charged up to 80% in under an hour. On the front is a dual-sensor HD webcam for attending meetings and video calls. For biometrics, the laptop uses a fingerprint reader. There are also quad speakers with MaxxAudio Pro and Waves Nx 3D audio.
Design and Display
The new XPS 13 Plus has undergone significant design changes from Dell. Dell has replaced the previous models’ island-style keys with a “zero-lattice” keyboard that runs from edge to edge across the deck.
There are also no tactile function keys; instead, a capacitive touch row replaces all of them. The absence of a visible trackpad is another notable difference in this year’s model.
It’s built into the palm rest area beneath the keyboard, and it has haptics for feedback. While the design appears to be clean and simple, there are no markings to distinguish the trackpad area.
Dell offers the XPS 13 Plus in three display resolutions: FHD+, 3.5K, and 4K, but only the 3.5K resolution is available in Nepal. The screen is 13.4 inches in size, has a refresh rate of 60Hz, and has a peak brightness of 500 nits.
