Xbox Series S and Series X just had their prices slashed at this retailer

Xbox Series X and S system.

We’ve found an unlikely source of Xbox Series S deals and Xbox Series X deals, if you’re planning to buy one of Microsoft’s current-generation consoles. Dell has slashed the price of the Xbox Series S by $60, so it’s down to $240 from $300, while the Xbox Series X is discounted by $50 for a lowered price of $450 from $500. We’re not sure how much time is remaining on these savings, so if you want to get either console for cheaper than usual, it’s highly recommended that you proceed with the purchase as soon as possible. If you keep delaying the transaction, there’s a chance that you miss out.

The Microsoft Xbox Series S is the cheaper version among the two consoles, primarily because it goes fully digital as there’s no disc drive. You’ll instead be downloading your games from the Xbox Store, or through your subscription to Xbox Game Pass. You’ll still be able to play the best Xbox Series X games on the Xbox Series S, whether they’re multi-platform hits or the best Xbox Series X exclusives. If you prefer going digital with your games anyway, and you like the titles that you can access through Xbox Game Pass, the Xbox Series S may be more than enough for you, and it’s going to let you save some cash compared to buying the Xbox Series X.

If your budget allows, it’s highly recommended that you go for the Microsoft Xbox Series X instead. In our Xbox Series X versus Xbox Series S comparison, we highlight the Xbox Series X’s faster performance with 12 teraflops of processing power compared to 4 teraflops for the Xbox Series S, double the built-in storage at 1TB (though both consoles offer USB HDD support and the option for more memory with Microsoft’s storage expansion card), the capability for up to 8K gaming, and better media compatibility with its Ultra HD Blu-ray drive. Overall, you’ll enjoy a much better gaming experience on the Xbox Series X compared to the Xbox Series S.

Forza Horizon 5 running on the HP Omen 16.

One of the best gaming laptop deals has gotten even better with Best Buy selling the HP Omen 16 for $1,100 reduced from $1,850. Previously, we saw it dip to $1,250 which didn't seem like it could get any lower but, somehow, it did. If you've been waiting for an exceptional laptop deal, this is your chance. By buying the HP Omen 16, you get a laptop from one of the best laptop brands that is fully capable of playing plenty of the latest games.

Saving $750 is the kind of thing you really shouldn't ignore because it makes this laptop a far more affordable proposition for anyone who doesn't want to spend thousands on a gaming rig. The only catch here is that we're not sure how long it's going to stay this price for. Having already been on sale (for more) in recent times, we're guessing time is running out fast. If it seems like the gaming laptop for you, hit the button now. If you're not sure yet, keep reading while we tell you more about what it has to offer.
