There are a lot of great Dell laptop deals that came out of Labor Day, and this one in the Dell Inspiron 15 is probably one of the better ones if you’re looking for a nice budget laptop. It clocks in with a 10th-gen Intel i5-1035G1, a mid-tier CPU that can handle most tasks, as well as power the excellent 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768 resolution screen, so you aren’t going to constantly feel like the laptop is struggling. The 8GB of RAM also helps there, although the 256GB of SSD storage space may have you reaching over for an external hard drive deal to help supplement internal storage since there’s no upgrade option.

HP Pavilion x360 Convertible — $530, was $790

If you’re looking for something that has a more traditional 2-in-1 feel to it, the Flex 5i 16 does a slightly better job than the IdeaPad Flex 5i 14, which is still a relatively good laptop. With a 16-inch screen, the large size means you have more space to work with while also fitting some better specs under the hood in the form of the 12th-gen Intel i7-1255U, a mid- to high-tier CPU that should be able to handle the tasks of most users. As for the RAM, 8GB is the minimum we’d expect for the price point, and it can handle having a few apps and browsers open at the same time without an issue. Of course, the biggest selling point is the pen experience, which really elevates the Flexi 51 16 into a well-thought-out work device.

New XPS 13 laptop — $849, was $999

The newest XPS in Dell’s lineup is freakishly thin, coming in at just 0.55 inch in height, making it possibly one of the thinnest and easiest to carry laptops that you can buy right now, at least on a budget. What’s more impressive, though, is that it’s managed to fit a 12th-gen Intel i5-1230U CPU in it, a powerful mid-tier piece of hardware that we love to see on smaller laptops like this that may not immediately seem powerful. Besides that, the 13.4-inch screen can hit a whopping 500 nits of peak brightness, which means you can easily use it outside in the daylight without any issues. Internal storage is also great at 512GB, and the 8GB of RAM should be more than enough for most folks to work with. That being said, there are quite a few great Dell XPS deals for you to look through if you want more options.

ThinkPad T14s Gen 2 — $1,079, was $2,699

While 16-inch laptops are great, they might be a bit too much for some folk, which is where the ThinkPad T14s Gen 2 comes in with its 14-inch screen, making it a bit more compact and easier to carry around, and the 300-nit peak brightness is just at the point where you could potentially use it outside in a shaded area. In terms of overall power, it’s surprisingly punchy with an 11th-gen Intel i5-1135G7, a nice mid-tier CPU that will fit most academic and business use reasonably well. That said, what really makes it stand out is the 16GB of RAM, which is great for those whose desktop is full of open apps, documents, and browsers, and where that extra RAM can come in handy. It also has an impressive battery life, which isn’t surprising given Lenovo’s business line of laptops generally tends to do well in that regard.

Dell XPS 15 — $1,499, was $1,899

The list of the best Labor Day laptop deals notably includes the new Dell XPS 15 laptop. While this machine still costs a pretty penny even with the sale price, it’s still an incredible deal on this insanely powerful machine. The Dell XPS 15 comes with a 12th-generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, making it fast and powerful. With a 512GB hard drive, it’s ready for all of your pictures and music, and the 15.6-inch Full HD display is just waiting for you to start streaming your favorite content. It’s 16:10, four-sided Infinity Edge display has 100% Adobe RGB color, meaning that everything you create on this machine is more vibrant than ever and as expansive as your imagination. You can log on to this laptop instantly thanks to its built-in lid sensor that powers up the machine in less than a second, as well as via facial recognition and a fingerprint reader. This laptop from Dell is top of the line, but if you miss this Labor Day deal, you’ll be stuck paying full price.
