Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
Prime Day and Black Friday are only placed around a month apart from each other this year. This means that if big Prime Day savings drive a certain gadget out of stock, we might not see a restock in time for Black Friday or even Cyber Monday. Don’t worry too much about price differences, as we don’t expect prices to alter much between Prime Day and the Black Friday season. There’s also a possibility that if you wait to shop till Black Friday, the increased demand will result in hefty shipping delays and your new laptop might not arrive in time for your family Christmas gift exchange. Shop early with these Prime Day Dell XPS deals and save yourself the trouble of waiting until the last minute to get your Christmas gift.
Are any Prime Day Dell XPS deals too good to be true?
A lot of Dell XPS models got seriously discounted during Prime Day, and the remaining deals mean it can still be tempting to pull the trigger. Before you get started, though, there are a few things every shopper should keep in mind. Always do your research prior to the event so you know what you’re looking for and don’t feel overwhelmed by the number of deals. Even though you can never go wrong with the Dell brand, be cautious when you’re shopping for laptop accessories from other brands. Always check Dell XPS reviews and ratings if it’s a brand you’ve never heard of before. Finally, always trust your gut: If a deal looks suspicious, stay far away from it.
How to choose a Dell XPS laptop
There are three models of the Dell XPS on the market: XPS 13, XPS 15, and XPS 17. Here’s a breakdown of these models to help you shop during Prime Day.
Dell XPS 13: The XPS 13 is the cheapest model of the three starting at only $999. It has a 13-inch Infinity Edge display and comes packed with the 10th-gen Intel Core processor. It’s also pretty light, weighing in at just about 2.6 pounds for its base version. You’ll barely even feel like you have a laptop in your bag when you carry the XPS 13 around. It also has two USB-C ports for added connectivity and over 90% screen-to-body ratio, giving you more space to multitask. Its sleek design and portability features make it an ideal laptop for commuters and back-to-schoolers alike.
Dell XPS 15: This laptop boasts a 15-inch Infinity Edge Display and has the option to add on an Nvidia graphics card for even clearer images and better graphics. It’s slightly heavier than the XPS 13, weighing in at 4 pounds for its base version but is still light enough if you want to lug it around. The 10th-generation processor on this device is stronger, too, so you’ll be able to use heavy-duty apps like Photoshop with ease. There’s also an extra USB-C port on the XPS 15 if you’re looking for a better port selection. Other than that, the design is pretty similar between the XPS 13 and 15, albeit the 15 has about two more inches of screen. The starting price for the XPS 15 is $1,199, so if you’re okay spending a little more, take the plunge and invest in the XPS 15.
Dell XPS 17: The massive 17-inch Infinity Edge display gives the XPS 17 an almost otherworldly feel. It’s also the perfect laptop to transition from work to play because of its clear display and added integration of the Nvidia graphic card. It’s slim bezel also keeps the laptop weight low: For a 17-inch laptop it only weighs in at 4.7 pounds. There are also four USB-C ports and you’ll be happy to know that all four of these ports support Thunderbolt 3 for super-fast data transfers. It also has a sufficiently long battery life, surpassing 15 hours on its base model and a power-packed Intel 10th-gen processor so you can even use your laptop for gaming. The XPS 17 starts out at about $1,499, but if you want a gigantic screen with a light design, go with the XPS 17.
While these are the three models available, Dell allows you to easily customize within each model. You’ll be able to choose how much RAM and storage you need as well as if you want a stronger processor and better graphic cards. Make sure to look at all the options offered and customize your laptop based on what you use it for. If you can afford the 16GB RAM and Nvidia graphics card for the XPS 15 and 17, go for it.
