Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 prices slashed for Memorial Day — from $599

If you’re looking at Dell Memorial Day deals for a new laptop, here are a couple of offers that you should consider — the Dell XPS 13 with a $200 discount that slashes its price to $599 from $799, and the Dell XPS 15 at $300 off, bringing its price down to $1,199 from $1,499. These are previous-generation models following the Dell XPS reset, and in the case of the Dell XPS 15, it’s the last iteration of the laptop as it’s been replaced by the Dell XPS 14. However, both of them are still worthwhile purchases, especially with the savings that you can pocket if you buy them for the holiday. You need to be quick though, as their prices may go back to normal at any time.

The previous-generation Dell XPS 13 remains in our list of the best laptops as the best budget laptop, as it’s aggressively priced for a premium laptop with such a striking design. The 13.4-inch Full HD+ screen is surrounded by extremely narrow bezels, and it’s got enough performance for the daily activities required by work or school with its 12th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe Graphics, and 8GB of RAM. The laptop runs on Windows 11 Home out of the box, with the operating system pre-loaded in its 256GB SSD, and it has a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports for charging and connectivity with your accessories.

For a more powerful laptop with a larger display, you can’t go wrong with the Dell XPS 15. It’s on the way to retirement, but it’s still our top pick among the best 15-inch laptops partly because of the strong productivity and creativity performance provided by its 13th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Intel Arc A370M Graphics, and 16GB of RAM. The Dell XPS 15 features a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution and the Dell XPS line’s trademark InfinityEdge design, and it comes with Windows 11 Home pre-loaded in its 1TB SSD that should provide enough storage space for all of your important files. Connectivity with a monitor and your accessories won’t be a problem with the laptop’s USB-C port with DisplayPort and two Thunderbolt 4 ports.

This 15-inch gaming laptop from HP is over 30% off — save over $300

There are a lot of excellent gaming laptops out there, but they tend to be really expensive and usually outside the budget of most people on the market. Luckily, there are some solid budget options, especially if you don't need anything super fancy and aren't playing the latest AAA games. One great example is this configuration of the HP Victus 15, which usually goes for $1,000, but you can grab it right from HP for just $690.

Why you should buy the Victus by HP Gaming Laptop
The beating heart of any gaming machine is the GPU, and for this HP Victus 15, you get an RTX 3050, which is an entry-level card that is good for 1080p performance at 60FPS. You may have to make a couple of compromises here and there to get yourself the best framerate performance, although not too much. That said, it's worth considering upgrading to the RTX 4050 for an extra $90 since it gives you access to the latest DLSS 3 and a bit more performance. You can also upgrade the screen to a version that has a 144 Hz and 9 ms response time for just $25, and while that will absolutely tax the GPU when gaming, it's an excellent quality-of-life upgrade for the day-to-day for just that little amount of money.
