Cyber Monday 2023 has arrived and while deals abound in just about every category from laptops to phones, it's also inarguably one of the best times of year to pick up the Dell XPS 15 — one of the best all-around laptops.

Right now, you can get the Dell XPS 15 w/ RTX 4050 for $1,649 at Dell. In our recent Dell XPS 15 9530 review (different configuration), we gave it a solid 4 out of 5-star rating and our Editor's Choice Award. That's our current favorite Dell XPS 15, all thanks to its great performance, slick design, and bumpin' audio. $500 off one of the best laptops is nothing to scoff at.

If I was in the market for a premium all-rounder laptop, this is the one I'd get.

Laptop Mag: ★★★★

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 60Hz display. Consider a gaming-specific laptop with at display that has at least a 120Hz refresh rate for a better gaming experience.
