That's because laptops are on everyone's back-to-school list and retailers are discounting systems at a rapid pace in the hopes of getting your attention.

However, not every deal out there is worth your time. Here, we're helping Dell fans find the best deals on the Dell systems we recommend, whether you're looking for a premium XPS machine or a budget-friendly Inspiron.

Premium XPS laptops

The XPS is Dell's top-of-the line laptop. Currently, Dell offers two versions of the its 13-inch laptop: the XP3 13 9360 and the XPS 13 9370. The differences are subtle, but worth pointing out.

Due to its slightly slimmer profile, the XPS 13 9370 only has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB Type-C connector, and a microSD card slot. By comparison, the XPS 13 9360 has two USB Type-A ports, a Thunderbolt 3 port, and a full-size SD card slot. However, the XPS 13 9370 supports eGPUs, which lets you turn your XPS into a gaming rig.

When it comes to battery life, the XPS 13 9360 packs a much-longer 16-hour battery, whereas the new 9370 model taps out at 12 hours and 37 minutes. Both are excellent numbers, but the 9360 easily beats the newer model.

In terms of value, the 9360 is the way to go if you don't require eGPU support. Currently, both the 9360 and the 9370 lines are on sale and you can use coupon "50OFF699" to save an extra $50 bucks.

  • XPS 13 9360 for $881.99 via code "50OFF699" ($73 off, Core i5-8250U/8GB/256GB)
  • XPS 13 9370 for $1,126.99 via code "50OFF699" ($73 off, Core i5-8250U/8GB/256GB)

Both models have been cheaper, so if you're not in a rush to buy, we may see cheaper prices (an extra $100 off) toward the latter half of August.

Take up to $728 off select Alienware laptops

Gamers, take note. Various Alienware systems are currently on sale and you can use the same "50OFF699" coupon to save an extra $50.

If you want to spend the least amount of money possible, your best bet is the new Alienware 15 for $1,322.99 via coupon "50OFF699". For a limited time, both the base model (Core i5-8300H/8GB of RAM/GTX 1060 OC) and the step-up model (Core i7-8750H/16GB of RAM/GTX 1060 OC) are priced the same at $1,371.99 (pre-coupon). So opt for the Core i7-based model, use the coupon mentioned above, and you'll be everyone's envy on campus with your new gaming rig.  

If you prefer a smaller footprint, the Alienware 13 costs the same after coupon, but it packs previous-gen tech, which is why we recommend the new Alienware 15 models.

    Well shout out to all those who are shopping madly like me, but be careful while entering the card details on websites. Use Ivacy VPN for more privacy.

    Pretty awesome Laoptop Deal, i was also looking for VPN Deals, and the best deal i could find is Ivacy VPN offering 1 year free with 1 year subscription for $1.50/mo. I think that's a pretty good deal.
