Dell declares independence from high prices: Discounts XPS 15 for 4th of July

When hunting deals on the best Windows laptops, you often have to get a PC that's a year old to find a good discount. But that's not the case this 4th of July. Both Best Buy and Dell have deals on the new XPS 15 featuring a 13th Gen Intel CPU and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40-series GPU.

The XPS 15 is a laptop with a premium design. It's Dell's flagship mobile PC that's powerful enough for creative work and gaming while being light enough to take on the go.

In our Dell XPS 15 review, our Rebecca Spear was impressed by its design:

"To say the Dell XPS 15 (9530) has a powerful presence is an understatement. It was clear from the moment I pulled the laptop from the packaging that Dell's sleek design and thin chassis are designed to impress in an understated form of elegance."

15.6" FHD+ (non-touch)

Spears was also impressed by the performance of the XPS 15:

"It works very well performance-wise and can handle more intensive programs and gaming. In that way, it's more than capable of handling most work tasks and creative software. It has a simplistic design that still manages to impress, while the beautiful OLED display shows off hues and tones to a crisp and vibrant degree. Overall, it's a great choice for a work or personal laptop."

The review breaks down all of the pros and cons of the PC, so it's worth browsing through before deciding if the XPS 15 is right for you.
