On the hunt for a solid workhorse on a budget? Look no further than this incredibly well-priced Dell Inspiron. A full $200 price cut makes this one a really great value machine with its powerful Core i5 processor.

Avoid if: you need lots of storage

Deal rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Another incredibly competitively priced machine, this mid-range Dell Inspiron 15 is a stellar buy if you need a ton of power but don't want to break the bank. For the price, getting one of the latest 12th gen Core i7 processors is fantastic - and you'll get a full kit of 16GB RAM and a spacious 512GB SSD to top it all off.

Ideal for: working from home
Avoid if: you want a premium machine

Dell XPS 13: <a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-6361382-12578053?sid=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/g39z" data-link-merchant="dell.com"">was $1,009 now $999 at Dell
Processor:
Intel Core i7-1250U
RAM: 16GB
SSD: 512GB

While a high asking price makes this Dell XPS 13 a difficult recommendation for those on a budget, those with a bit of cash to spend will find a ton of value with this listing at Dell. Not only are you getting $100 off one of the <a href="https://www.techradar.com/news/mobile-computing/laptops/best-laptops-1304361" data-link-merchant="techradar.com"" data-link-merchant="dell.com"">best laptops money can buy, but this particular model features a full set of 16GB RAM, a spacious drive, and a fairly new 12th gen Intel Core i7 processor. Put together you're getting a super portable machine with plenty of power and a drop-dead gorgeous design.

Ideal for: productivity on the go
Avoid if: you're happy with just the basics

Deal rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Of the three, we'd recommend the top one as the best laptop deal for most users who simply want to cover the basics, like answering emails, streaming videos, or shopping online. The Core i5 inside is enough to suffice for the basics, and you may get away with simply opting for this one versus the middle choice if you're not a power user.

If you do think you'll be running intensive applications, however, then the middle choice is absolutely fantastic. It's got a bigger storage drive, and the Core i7 chip inside will absolutely breeze through spreadsheets or productivity applications. Note, however, that it's not a super high-end machine design-wise. For something a little 'special,' you'll want to opt for our final choice on the stunning Dell XPS 13. This model isn't just powerful and lightweight, but it has a superbly premium design and display that set it apart from most Windows laptops.

Note, while these top three are our three favorite laptop deals in the Dell Presidents' Day sale, there are a number of other listings that are definitely worth checking out, which include Dell coupon codes. We've rounded these up just below, and you'll also find plenty of other recommendations over at our main Presidents' Day sales hub.
