Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is the world’s largest technology fair, which attracts over lakhs of attendees each year. Though due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s CES was a hybrid affair — a mix of in-person and web events. As per the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), CES 2022 was limited to around 40,000 attendees from across the globe. Kicked off on January 5th, the show was home to some of the biggest brands in the industry including Samsung, LG, Bosch, BMW, Intel, Qualcomm, Dell, Garmin, Asus, and Sony. These brands showcased interesting hardware spanning several categories such as home appliances, EVs, 3D Printing, robotics, healthcare, gaming, smart home, and more. Now that the event has been wrapped up, let’s take a look at the highlights from CES 2022.
Dell XPS 13 Plus
Dell has unveiled a laptop that puts the latest MacBook to shame. Its latest XPS 13 Plus nails the minimalist design. The notebook features a premium aluminium build tipping the scales at just 1.2 kg. It is complemented by a 13.4-inch OLED screen with incredibly thin bezels. The keyboard takes full advantage of the available space. To achieve the seamless design, Dell has decided not to highlight the glass trackpad. In terms of raw power, the XPS 13 Plus packs in Intel’s 12th-gen Core i5 or Core i7 processor paired with Iris Xe integrated graphics. Consumers will get to opt for up to 32GB RAM and a 2TB SSD. The machine comes with 2 USB-C ports. However, it misses out on a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Dell XPS 13 Plus has a starting price of $1,199.
