Buy if: You want a laptop for heavy productivity and graphics intensive creative tasking like video and photo editing with RAW files. 

Don't buy if: You want a laptop predominantly for gaming at high frame rates. Although this laptop's gaming performance is impressive, it only has a 60Hz display. Consider a gaming-specific laptop with a display that has at least a 120Hz refresh rate for a better gaming experience.

The laptop in this deal has a 15.6-inch FHD+ (1920 x 1200) 500-nit display, 13th Gen Intel Core i9-13900H 14-core CPU, 32GB of RAM, RTX 4060 GPU (8GB of dedicated memory), 1TB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.  

Port-wise, it equips you with two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, full-sized SD card reader, and a headset jack. It also ships with a dongle adapter, something you don't often get with laptops. Apple, we're looking at you. 

In our recent Dell XPS 15 9530 review, we gave it a solid 4 out of 5-star rating and our Editor's Choice Award. We loved its slick, elegant design alongside its great overall and gaming performance. We were also impressed by its vivid display and excellent audio. 

In a nutshell, the Dell XPS 15 is ideal for remote workers, college students and creators who want a powerful productivity laptop. If this sounds like you, the Dell XPS 15 is a worthy daily driver.
