As part of the sale, Dell is taking 35 percent off the Editors' Choice Precision 5520. After coupon "SAVE35," the rarely discounted laptop drops to $1,305.57 ($94 off). This base configuration includes a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD, 2.5GHz Core i5-7300HQ quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 500GB 7200rpm HDD.
The Precision 5520 packs the same chassis, screen, and keyboard as Dell's consumer XPS 15, but houses the performance that a professional animator or engineer might need. It weighs 4.4 pounds and has a premium look and feel. Yet it also passed 14 tests for MIL-SPEC durability, the standards that the U.S. Military equipment must pass for ruggedness.
If you prefer a rugged tablet, the Latitude 7212 is also on sale. Use coupon "SAVE35" to drop its price to $1,788.43 ($131 off). It features an 11.6-inch 1080p glove-capable touchscreen with Gorilla Glass, 2.4GFHz Core i3-7100U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD.
The Latitude 7212 is one of our favorite business devices capable of surviving water, extreme temperatures, and 4-foot drops without getting a scratch. There's also an optional keyboard cover that can be attached to the tablet for a traditional, laptop-like experience.
There are also various sub-$1,000 business machines on sale including the $539 Vostro 15 3000 and the budget Inspiron 15 3000 for $399.99. Dell is also bundling a free 1TB Western Digital HDD with select systems.
Dell's Small Business Sale ends May 31 at 8am ET.
