The Dell XPS 13 isn't just one of the best Dell laptops, it's one of the best Windows laptops you can buy. The XPS 13 is a compact Ultrabook with a premium design. It builds on several generations of excellence and right now, you can grab one for under $600.
A Dell discount takes $200 off the XPS 13, bringing the laptop's price to $599. That particular model has a 12th Gen Intel Core i5-1230U, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Those are entry-level specs, but they're fine for everyday computing.
The discounted XPS 13 features a 13.4-inch FHD+ (1920 x 1200) display. When Dell bumped up the XPS 13 from 11th Gen Intel chips to 12th Gen chips, it changed the display options. While previous models of the XPS 13 were available with 3.5K displays, that resolution was reserved for the XPS 13 Plus after the generation hop.

This is the price I paid for the Robo&Kala 2-in-1 during the last major sale.Reply
Even at $749 these days, the Robo&Kala remains a superior machine. Better screen with touch, faster processor, better battery life, double the RAM, double the SSD storage.
Yet, if you REALLY need a conventional non-touch laptop, it's a pretty good deal.
