Dell XPS 13, Dell XPS 15 and Dell XPS 17 just got big discounts

If you like the idea of MacBook devices but aren’t as appreciative of their price or the need to be in the Apple ecosystem, Dell has your back with their XPS lineup of devices. In fact, Dell just put out some truly excellent discounts across the three different sizes; the XPS 13, 15, and 17, so you have a lot of choices to pick from! That said, it’s always worth checking out these other laptop deals as well if you want some variety.

The Dell XPS 13 is Dell’s answer to the MacBook Air, and while it doesn’t have the latest and most advanced M1 or M2 chips, it’s still relatively robust and, equally important, much cheaper. Under the hood, you’ll find the 12th Gen Intel Core i7-1250U, a mid-to-high tier chip that will easily handle all the productivity tasks you throw at it and some editing tasks. The 16GB of DDR5 RAM is plenty fast, and the 512GB of storage should be more than enough for most folks. While the screen only runs at an FHD+ resolution, it can hit a whopping 500nits of peak brightness, which means you can use it almost anywhere, including outside during the day. As for battery life, you’re looking at around 16 hours or so, depending on use and screen brightness, but either way, it’s still going to be more than enough for most folks!

What makes this version Dell XPS 15 laptop interesting is that it comes with a unique GPU, the Intel Arc A370M, Intels’ first and only GPU on the market. While it’s a budget-level GPU and still finding its legs, it lets you get away with some gaming here and there. That’s especially the case if you’re interested in the main free-to-play games that tend to be optimized for budget hardware. Luckily, that’s where the budget-level hardware ends, as you get the pretty powerful 13th Gen Intel Core i7-13700H for productivity and editing, as well as 16GB of DDR5 RAM and 512GB of SSD space. It also runs the same FHD+ display so that it won’t stress the GPU as much, and it can even hit 500 nits of peak brightness for when you are out and about.

While this version of the Dell XPS 17 might not have a GPU in it, the massive 17-inch screen gives you more than enough screen real estate to work with. That said, the bigger screen and lower price means you are compromising on internals. For example, you get the 12th Gen Intel Core i5-12500H, which isn’t as powerful as the i7, but as a mid-range CPU, it’s realistically more than enough for all productivity tasks, which the i7 tends to be overpowered for anyway. Besides that, all the other specs are the same, including the 16GB of DDR5 RAM, a 512GB SSD, and the 512GB of SSD space. So, while you don’t get a GPU and a higher-end CPU, you still get a big screen and otherwise great specs.

Insane deal knocks $900 off the Razer Blade 17 gaming laptop
Razer Blade 17 on a table.

Razer is known for making some of the best laptops in the market, although they're equally well-known for being a high-end brand that is often quite expensive. Even so, if you're looking for a unique laptop, Razer is probably where you'd look, and in this case, if you want one of the best 17-inch gaming laptops, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than the Razer Blade 17. Of course, it does come at a pretty penny, although Razer is running a great deal right now that discounts the Blade 17 down to $2,300 rather than the usual $3,200, a significant 28% discount.

Why you should buy the Razer Blade 17
Probably one of the first things you'll want to know about this Razer Blade 17 is what sort of GPU it runs, and we're happy to report that you'll find the relatively powerful RTX 3070 Ti under the hood. That's a card that can provide reasonably good 4k performance, which is good because the Blade 17 comes with a gorgeous 17-inch 2k resolution panel. As such, the RTX 3070Ti will easily run most games on high resolution and graphical settings without much issue. The panel also has a very impressive 240Hz refresh rate, which means that if you're going to be playing competitive or action-packed games where each frame counts, you can get some high refresh rates from the RTX 3070 Ti, with a few graphical compromises, of course.

This Razer 27-inch QHD gaming monitor just got a massive discount
Playing a game on the Razer Raptor gaming monitor.

Razer has a reputation for making some of the best gaming laptops and peripherals on the market and is often viewed as the high-end equivalent of the gaming market, in the same vein as Apple or Mercedes. What you may not know is that Razer also makes high-end gaming monitors, and the Razer Raptor 27 is an excellent example of it, as it has a lot of great features under the hood that any gamer would love. While it usually comes at the steep cost of $800, Razer is offering a massive discount on it of %50, meaning you can grab the Raptor 27 for just $400, which is a steal.

Why you should buy the Razer Raptor 27
Right off the bat, one of the things that let the Raptor 27 compete with the best gaming monitors is the impressive 165Hz refresh rate at 1440p resolution. That means you get a lot of room to adjust whether you want a higher resolution for single-layer games or a higher refresh rate for multiplayer and action-packed games where each frame counts. Or, if you have one of the best GPUs right now, such as the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX, you can easily push both the refresh rate and resolution to their limits, even on the highest graphical settings.

The HP Victus 15, a gaming laptop that caters to the needs of gamers on a tight budget, is currently even more affordable with the help of a $250 discount from HP. From its original price of $950, it's down to just $700, which is a very cheap price to pay for a decent gaming laptop. You're going to have to push through with the purchase right away if you're interested though, because we're not sure if this offer will still be around for you to shop tomorrow.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15 gaming laptop
For its price, you shouldn't expect the HP Victus 15 to challenge the performance of the top-of-the-line models of the best gaming laptops. However, it's capable of running the best PC games with its AMD Ryzen 5 7535HS processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 GPU, and 8GB of RAM, though you may have to dial down the graphics to the lowest settings for the more demanding titles. For most gamers, that's a perfect acceptable compromise considering this gaming laptop is below $1,000.
