Our favorite deal so far? It's got to be the excellent Dell XPS 13 for just $599 (was $799). While this particular listing is on the basic entry-level model - the one with a Core i5 chipset and 256GB SSD - this is the lowest price we've ever seen for such a model. Followers of TechRadar will know that the XPS 13 has been a common inclusion on our best laptop buyer's guide over the years and is rarely found for under $800, so this deal isn't to be missed.

Another couple of fantastic deals in the Dell Labor Day sale include this superb mid-range Dell Inspiron 15 with a Ryzen 7 processor for just $499 (was $699.99) and this Inspiron 15 Plus with a Core i7 for $799.99 (was $1,349).
