The Dell Black Friday sale is already live for 2023 and, as you'd expect, it features absolutely fantastic deals on high-end Dell XPS laptops.

Right now, for example, you can pick up a baseline entry-level Dell XPS 13 for as little as $599 (was $799) - a stellar choice for covering the basics. Even though this is just the Core i5 configuration with a 256GB SSD, this is a great price for such a premium laptop and the lowest I've personally seen in over three years of covering Black Friday deals

A few other notable mentions include this upgraded Dell XPS 13 model for $799 (was $1,099) and this new Dell XPS 15 for $1,199 (was $1,499). With a tasty $300 off, both these Core i7-equipped machines are great buys for those who need a laptop with a little more power under the hood. They're a little pricey, for sure, but they'll last a few good years down the line and handle most applications you throw at them.

As an overview, Dell's XPS laptops are the brand's high-end Windows ultrabooks; machines that usually carry a premium price tag. They're commonly ranked amongst the best laptops money can buy here at TechRadar so these Dell Black Friday deals aren't to be missed if you're interested.
