Whether you are looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day gift for that special someone who is into technology, or trying to strike a deal for yourself among the discounted hardware for Presidents Day, this is a good weekend to shop. There are lots of sale items, including Dell's swank XPS 13 (7390) laptop you see above.
The Dell XPS 13 7390 is on sale for $1,394.49 at Amazon (save $405.50), by way of a marketplace seller (it qualifies for Prime shipping). This is a previous generation laptop, though don't let that make you overlook this laptop—it's a sleek and powerful machine boasting a 13.3-inch InfinityEdge touchscreen with a 4K resolution, powered by a still-powerful Intel Core i7-10710U processor and 16GB of RAM. It also features a capacious 1TB solid state drive.
In short, the XPS 13 7390 is a premium laptop with excellent build quality and fast all-around performance, and it is available at a hefty 23 percent discount. Good stuff.
Save 19% On Dell's Gaming G3 15 3500 Laptop
If you are looking for something a bit more affordable and with gaming chops, you are in luck. You can score a Dell Gaming G3 15 3500 for $749.98 at Amazon (save $180.01) right now. This is the latest model, and it features a 15.6-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution and fast 120Hz refresh rate, making it a great pick for esports.
Underneath the hood it wields a Core i5-10300H Comet Lake processor, GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. More RAM would be nice, but it is hard to complain at this price (and you could add another 8GB module easily enough, as there is an open SO-DIMM slot). And as for the GPU, while it will not always be able to take full advantage of a 120Hz refresh rate, it is certainly capable of pushing high framerates well above 60 fps in some less demanding games.
