Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is back with a new round of deals to share. Summer may be over and Labor Day may have passed, but many PC manufacturers are still offering good deals on popular laptops. One of our favorites comes from Dell: now you can get the new XPS 13 laptop with a 13-inch 4K touchscreen, Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, 1TB SSD for $1,618.49.
That’s just over $400 of savings on our current favorite Windows laptop, and it’s a model that’s almost completely specced out.
This particular XPS 13 model is very similar to the model Ars reviewed, except it has 1TB of storage while our review unit had just 512GB. We love the compact yet stylish frame of this laptop, especially the properly placed webcam. It offers strong performance and battery life as well. Our biggest complaint is its 16:9 aspect ratio, but if you can get past that, the XPS 13 is a great all-purpose laptop.
Our current favorite 2-in-1 is also on sale: HP has its Spectre x360 13 with a Core i5 processor, 13-inch FHD display, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and an included stylus for just $899.99. Not only does this convertible have solid performance, a built-in fingerprint reader, an IR camera, and a webcam kill-switch for privacy, but it also has some of the longest battery life of any Windows laptop we’ve tested—it lasted an average of 30.5 hours on our default battery test.
Those looking for gaming machines are in luck as well, as Lenovo, Dell, Acer, and Asus have a few solid deals on some of their newest gaming laptops. But if you’re satisfied with your current laptop, we have deals on smart light bulbs, smart TVs, gaming accessories, wireless charging pads, and more. Check out the full list of deals below.
