This year's Amazon Prime Day deals are due to start on Tuesday, and Dell - like many other retailers - has launched a rival laptop sale, which includes top discounts on a number of premium Dell XPS 13 machines.

We've seen prices starting at just $799 (was $848.99) today for this slightly older, but still excellent, 2019 model. While you're forgoing the fancy near bezel-less display of the Dell XPS 2020 models, this is easily one of the cheapest prices we've seen for a machine with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD - specs that beat out most of the cheaper Dell XPS offerings recently.

If you need a little more power, consider this deal on a Dell XPS 13 Touch (2019) for $899.99 (was $999.99). That $100 saving makes this Intel Core i5-equipped ultrabook a lot more affordable; and with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD, you're not making any sacrifices either.

Lastly, if only the very latest and greatest will do, there's a neat $20 discount on a Dell XPS 13 (2020) too, bringing the price down to $979.99. It boasts a slick bezel-less display and brand new 11th generation i3 processor (something that isn't widely available), making it one of the slimmest, most advanced ultrabooks you can buy.
