If you're on the hunt for a top-tier Windows ultrabook in this year's Memorial Day sales, one of the best laptop deals we've seen so far is this upgraded Dell XPS 13 model for $930.99 (was $1,299) at the official Dell store.

It's not the cheapest Dell XPS 13 deal we've ever seen - the record is around $699 - but it is one of the best this year on an upgraded Core i7 model. Specifically, this Dell XPS 13 features an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD, which are some of the best specs you'll find anywhere on a Windows laptop.

It's enough power to easily handle a whole range of work or casual applications, even those with intensive requirements like massive spreadsheets or music production. There's actually not much this machine can't handle besides gaming.

The only downside with this particular model is that its design is based on the now-older 2019 XPS 13 model. That's to say, it's got slightly thicker bezels and doesn't feature a 4K display either. If you are interested in a more 'modern' machine, check out Dell's Memorial Day deal on this stunning 2020 model with a 4K display for $1,419.99 (was $1,919). We wrote about this deal yesterday if you're interested in learning more - and we've included a few more details just below.
