While this year’s Black Friday deals rage on at many leading retailers, quietly nestled away in a corner of the Dell website is a prime opportunity to bag a Dell XPS 13 for some of the lowest prices we’ve seen all year.
In particular, a $170 discount on this upgraded 2019 Dell XPS 13 for $979.99 is an easy recommendation. Inside there’s a 10th gen Intel Core i7-10510U, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD – specs that are right up there in the big leagues when it comes to power, especially in such a slick 13-inch laptop.
Compared to the most recent 2020 Dell XPS 13 for the same price you’re getting a lot more power under the hood. Of course, you’ll have to do without the brand new near bezel-less display the 2020 models feature, but that’s an acceptable trade-off if you value power and value as much as style.
All Dell XPS 13 laptops have featured heavily in our guide to the best laptops over the years, so we’re always happy to recommend these industry-leading laptops to our readers. If you’re interested, we definitely recommend moving fairly quickly though because we’ve already seen this $116 off sale on the baseline 2019 model sell out in quick order.
Another viable option is to check out this week’s Black Friday laptop deals, which are starting to really heat up right now. Many leading retailers (including Dell) are offering amazing prices already, so it’s a great opportunity for those who don’t want to face the crowds later this month.
Dell XPS 13 on sale right now
Dell XPS 13 (2019):
$1,149.99 $979.99 at Dell
Save $170 and bag yourself an outstandingly powerful ultrabook for an excellent price. This particular spec features a 10th gen Intel Core i6, 18GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD – components that’d you pay a much, much higher premium on for the 2020 model and most MacBook Pros. If you can handle the slightly chunkier bottom screen bezel on this 2019 model, it’s an easy recommendation.
Dell XPS 13 (2020):
$999.99 $979.99 at Dell
Alternatively, you could opt to spend the same and go for the very latest model. For a comparatively higher premium, you’ll be trading out your i7 and 16GB of RAM for a very newly released 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor plus the latest near-borderless Infinity Edge display. Is it worth it? In our eyes the 2019 model is a little bit better value right now, although this is still a fine price to pay for an absolutely stunning ultrabook.
