We also spotted the Dell XPS 15 on sale at NeweggFlash. The discounted model features a 2.2Ghz i7/8GB/256GB and a 4GB GTX 1050Ti graphics card at $1,149.99 shipped with a bonus $50 gift card. Dell normally sells this model for around $1,400 but has discounted it to $1,250 without a gift card right now. The XPS 15 packs Dell’s InfinityEdge display tech which makes the screen go nearly edge-to-edge. Rated 3.9/5 stars.

And regardless of which laptop you pick up, be sure to check out the High Sierra Powerglide Wheeled Laptop Bag for $39 shipped at Amazon. That’s $25 off its going rate and a great way to keep your new laptop safe while traveling.
