We are constantly asked about the best deals on desktops, laptops, monitors and everything digital. So we are going to start posting here what we consider very good deals and promotions on various types of computer equipment. This week it is a good mid to slightly upper end 13" laptop and there is only three days from the time that this posts to get an extra $100 off (see coupon code below).
Now we always have certain benchmarks that should be considered as standard and required for the best user experience and reliability. You can use these benchmarks to get an accurate way to compare other laptops or desktops so long as they have the same specs. here are the benchmarks for this laptop...
- Intel i5 or i7 6th or 7th generation processor
- 8GB RAM
- 250GB or more solid state hard drive
Now onto this weeks best deal - the DELL 13" XPS laptop. First, why do people buy the smaller 13" screen size? the answer is that they are smaller, generally thinner and lighter, and they are just easy to carry around or keep in a backpack. If you need a bigger screen for your applications then this laptop is not for you. It should also be known that any laptops of this smaller monitor size don't have the number pad on the right, which some accountants or people who use the number pad located on the right of most standard keyboards, miss in these smaller laptops but there is just no room for it and there is still the numbers located horizontally at the top - just something to think about if it's important to you.
So here are the best features of the DELL XPS laptop...
- InfinityEdge display; the viewing area goes all the way out to the edge of the monitor providing more viewing real-estate, a real big advantage over other 13" laptops.
- Intel i5 7th generation dual core processor
- 8GB RAM
- 250GB PCIe solide state drive (yes, you want a solid state drive - trust me)
- Thunderbolt type c port
- Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1
- Up to 22 hours of battery life (13 hours streaming Netflix)
- 2.7 pounds (very light)
- great customer reviews
Ok, this laptop is pretty high end and it certainly competes with the Macbook Air, which starts around $1,000. This DELL XPS is on sale for $880 with the above configuration but if you use this coupon code "50OFF499" you can get it for $783.
