Looking for a cheap laptop? A brand new semi-annual sale is live at Dell, where you can save up to $710 off a range of Inspiron and XPS laptops. All you need to do is enter the code 'SAVE17' at the checkout to, you guessed it, apply an extra 17% discount on any eligible laptop.
We've taken a look at everything that's on offer and can see that prices for the Inspiron range start at just $244 for the most basic model. However, we'd suggest checking out this Dell Inspiron 15 3000 for $366.02 (was $588.99) as it's one of the best value for money options you can buy in the sale. With an Intel i3 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD, it's best suited to those who need a capable mid-range machine for everyday use, including general browsing, emails, work, and media streaming.
There are various options to upgrade (or downgrade) if needed to better fit your budget or needs. Those with a bit extra to spend and after a further performance boost should definitely consider snapping up this version with an Intel i5 processor for $469.33 (was $688.99). It's rare that a device with all these top components is priced so significantly less than $500.
What about the ever-popular Dell XPS 13? Don't fret, one of TechRadar's top picks for the best laptop does also feature in the sale - albeit in a limited capacity. The best deal is this XPS 13 Touch for $772.72 (was $930.99). That's a little over $100 more than the cheapest ever price we've seen for an XPS laptop, but it does come with touchscreen support. The spec is solid, too, with an Intel i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD - all excellent components you'd expect in a high-performance machine at this price.
But those are just a few of the highlights. Definitely take some time to check out the sale in full, as it has some of the best laptop deals we've seen all year.
