Dell almost always has great laptop deals and for a little while now, it’s been selling an older model of the Dell XPS 13 for just $599. That deal continues today but we’re really not sure how long it’s going to stick around for. It feels like it must be ending very soon. The laptop usually costs $799 so you’re saving $200 but overall, this is a fantastic deal for the hardware involved. If you’re keen to learn more before the deal ends, keep reading.

Why you should buy the Dell XPS 13

Dell is one of the best laptop brands out there so you simply can’t go wrong with purchasing from it. With this model, you get a 12th-generation Intel Core i5-1230U processor along with 8GB of memory and 256GB of SSD storage. There’s also a 13.4-inch full HD+ screen with 1920 x 1200 resolution, 500 nits of brightness, and anti-glare properties. That’s fairly standard stuff at this price but it’s the build quality of the Dell XPS 13 which makes it stand out so much.

Previously, it was Dell’s thinnest and lightest 13-inch XPS model while still boasting great battery life of up to 12 hours. It also has built-in Dell Performance so you can switch between the quietest of modes to one focused on performance so you always get exactly what you need out of the Dell XPS 13. This is just one of the reasons why this was one of the best laptops at launch.

It also has a minimalist and durable design, having been constructed with machined (CNC) aluminum while there’s still room for two Thunderbolt 4/USB-C ports with DisplayPort and Power Delivery. For the webcam, there’s a 720p HD RGB camera along with dual stereo speakers and Wi-Fi 6E. The Dell XPS 13 has all the essentials you need for using on the move as long as you don’t plan on multitasking too extensively.

An ideal budget laptop, the Dell XPS 13 normally costs $799 but right now, you can buy it from Dell for $599. It won’t stick around for long as Dell is selling off older stock. If you don’t want to miss out, buy it now as you really don’t have long left.

The new XPS 14 laptop has a $500 discount with this deal

For a laptop with powerful performance and an eye-catching design, you can't go wrong with the recently launched Dell XPS 14. We didn't expect it to appear with a discount from laptop deals this soon though, so you shouldn't miss the chance to get the device with a $500 discount from Dell. Instead of its sticker price of $2,199, you'll only have to pay $1,699 for this machine, which is still fairly expensive but it's going to be worth every single penny. There's no telling when the offer expires though, so hurry with your purchase to make sure you don't miss out.

Why you should buy the Dell XPS 14
The Dell XPS 14 is a new model following the Dell XPS reset, featuring an edge-to-edge keyboard with larger keycaps, an invisible haptic feedback trackpad, and glowing touch keys at the top instead of physical function keys. The laptop's 14.5-inch Full HD+ screen is also eye-catching as it's bright and colorful, and there's plenty of storage space in its 1TB SSD. The Dell XPS 14 also promises dependable performance with its Intel Core Ultra 7 processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card, and 16GB of RAM, which will allow it to handle the most demanding tasks of your daily workload.

This Dell Chromebook is $31 — it doesn’t get any cheaper than that

Most shoppers opt for Chromebooks because they're generally cheaper than traditional laptop deals, but you probably didn't think they can get as cheap as this: the Dell Chromebook 3180, which had prices starting at $219 when it was released in 2017, is down to a very affordable $31 from Walmart. That's $188 in savings, but there's a catch -- this isn't a brand new device. If you're fine with that, and you just need a basic machine for simple tasks, then proceed with your purchase immediately if you don't want to miss out on this bargain.

Why you should buy the Dell Chromebook 3180
The Dell Chromebook 3180 doesn't look like it offers much in terms of performance, as it's only equipped with the Intel Celeron N3060 processor, Intel HD Graphics 400, and 4GB of RAM. However, since it's a Chromebook that's powered by Google's Chrome OS, it runs smoother than you would expect, as the operating system relies heavily on online apps for a lighter load on the device's systems. The Chromebook also comes with an 11.6-inch screen with HD resolution that keeps it portable, 16GB of internal storage that you can supplement with extra space on Google Drive, and a battery that can run for five hours on a single charge.
