Dell’s premiere laptops, the XPS 13 and its larger friend, the XPS 15, are not only among the most loved notebooks, but they’re also in such huge demand that finding a discount is like tripping over a four-leaf clover.
Dell’s sleek, sharp and surly XPS laptops aren’t affordable. In fact, the XPS name is supposed to conjure thoughts of a high-end, flagship-grade PC. But, when a laptop costs more than some rent rates, buying a Dell XPS 13 or 15 at full price is often not in the cards for most.
Though you may be ready to scarf down any Dell XPS 13 or Dell XPS 15 deals that come your way, even as Black Friday approaches, chances are you should get a second opinion. As such, follow along as we pore through the mire of the internet for you, in turn (hopefully) saving you from burning too big a hole in your wallet for any one machine in this posh line of laptops.
The best Dell XPS 13 deals
As does any other laptop maker with its leading machine, Dell actually runs deals on its XPS 13 rather often … just not as large of ones or as frequently as, say, its mid-range Inspiron lineup.
Being Dell's most lusted-after laptop, it makes sense. With up to a 13.3-inch, 3K IPS touchscreen inside an 11-inch aluminum frame, Intel's latest Core i processors as well as Thunderbolt 3 and an SD card slot, the XPS 13 is ready for all sorts of use in work and play.
Below you'll find the best deals we could find on the XPS 13 in the UK, US and Australia. Just note that most XPS 13 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the model you want has the parts you want inside, too.

The best Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 deals
For those who crave the unwavering versatility of a 2-in-1 notebook, turn your head to the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1. This is a laptop that, although it bears the limitations of a 1.3GHz Y-series Intel Core i7 processor, is quite stunning in its look and its feel.
For starters, the backlit keyboard and glass-coated trackpad are natural to the touch. And don’t let the 1,920 x 1,080 FHD screen resolution bring you down; this InfinityEdge display might not seem like much on paper, but in person, it’s exquisite. That goes without mentioning the webcam, which is now centered as opposed to being offset to the left.
Below are the best deals we could muster on the XPS 13 2-in-1 in the UK, US and Australia. We'll say it again: note that most XPS 13 2-in-1 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

The best Dell XPS 15 deals
The XPS 15 is, frankly, a simply larger XPS 13. However, that extra space inside the 14-inch frame (fitting a 15.6-inch version of that beautiful screen) allows for Nvidia's GTX 1050 mobile graphics processor.
All else equal, this makes the XPS 15 even more suitable for professionals and players alike, though only considerably less portable. And, of course, a bigger screen asks for a heftier price tag.
