Your PC is only as good as its display, and the 27-inch Dell S2721HS monitor is a great choice if you’re feeling boxed in by standard 21- to 24-inch screens. Its sleek design with slim bezels gives you plenty of real estate for work and entertainment without hogging your desk as many larger monitors tend to do, while its Full HD resolution and IPS panel technology deliver a crisp, color-accurate picture with comfortable viewing angles for all-day use.
This 27-inch 1080p monitor would normally set you back $300, but the Dell Presidents Day Sale lets you grab it for just $160 — nearly 50% off.
— $TK, was $TK
The Dell XPS 13 has been one of our favorite laptops for a long time and it only keeps getting better with each update. And while the XPS line contains some awesome touchscreen and 2-in-1 laptops, sometimes all you need is a solid ultrabook without the expensive bells and whistles — and this XPS 13 laptop delivers. Its beefy 10th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU is paired with 8GB of RAM to offer great performance for work, entertainment, and general daily use, while a nice big 512GB SSD gives you plenty of snappy solid-state storage for loading files and programs quickly.
That impressive hardware works with a lovely 13-inch 1080p display, which is an ideal size for work while keeping the laptop small and light enough that it won’t weigh you down. Best of all? The Dell Presidents Day Sale knocks $TK off the price, letting you score this XPS 13 laptop for $TK.
— $750, was $860
Most people probably think of Dell as more of a suit-and-tie brand, but there are some excellent and affordable gaming machines bearing the Dell logo, too. The Dell G3 is one of the best budget-friendly gaming laptops on the market: This one packs a 10th-gen Core i5 CPU with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Ti discrete GPU, which are excellent components for running modern games smoothly at a full 1080p. The 15.6-inch display also boasts a 120Hz refresh rate — something you don’t typically see on laptops — allowing you to crank up the frame rate to 60 fps without having to suffer with stuttering and screen-tearing.
The Dell Presidents Day Sale knocks the Dell G3 down to $750, saving you $110.
— $TK, was $TK
Smaller ultrabooks are great for portability, but for things like writing, graphic design, and video editing, a larger display is welcome. The Dell XPS 15 gives you some more room to work without being too big and bulky to comfortably carry, hitting a nice sweet spot in size and weight. This updated model even sports a gorgeous 4K OLED display, making that lovely 15.6-inch screen even better to look at (not to mention more accurate for visual and creative work). Behind that, you’ve got an Intel Core i7 CPU along with a GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, making this laptop capable of things like video editing along with a little gaming after work.
The Dell Presidents Day Sale gives this excellent all-around laptop a $TK haircut, making it yours for just $TK for a limited time.
— $1,250, was $1,550
The XPS stable contains great laptops of all types, but where Dell really shines is with its XPS 13 convertible, which is still one of the best 2-in-1 laptops money can buy. This new Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 has been updated with Intel’s latest 11th-gen Core i5 processor which is backed up by 8GB of DDR4 RAM for great all-day performance. But arguably our favorite feature of this sleek ultrabook is its stunning 2400p Ultra HD+ fold-flat touch display with an improved aspect ratio of 16:10, making this Dell XPS 13 an absolute joy to look at.
During the Dell President’s Day Sale, this XPS 13 UHD+ 2-in-1 laptop is marked down to $1,250 after a tidy $300 discount. That’s a fantastic price for a 4K laptop of this caliber.
— $1,200, was $1,650
The Alienware brand, now part of the Dell family is iconic in the world of PC gaming — and if you’re looking for one of the best 17-inch gaming laptops out there, then the Alienware m17 R3 is the one. Loaded with a 10th-gen Core i7 CPU, a boosted 16GB of RAM, and an AMD Radeon 5500M GPU (one of AMD’s recent mobile graphics cards), this machine will easily handle the latest AAA games, which you can enjoy on an up-sized 17.3-inch 1080p display that features a 144Hz refresh rate. Of course, with hardware like that, this gaming laptop would also make for a beefy workstation and a great all-around PC in general.
This Alienware m17 R3 is on sale right now for $1,200, with the Dell Presidents Day deals saving you a cool $450.
