Dell’s XPS 13 laptops have always had a place among the best ultrabooks and left fans hungrily awaiting deals on these devices. The XPS 13 9310, the first XPS 13 to use a Tiger Lake chip, is no exception, and its recent release means that previous models like the XPS 13 9300 will probably be going on sale soon. That’s why, with in our Best Tech and PC Hardware deals, we’re listing all the best sales we can find on these laptops in their various configurations.
Amazingly, if you're willing to go for the older of these models, you can score a Dell XPS 13 for as little as $649, the cheapest we've ever seen this computer. Granted, the base model has only a Core i3 and 8GB of RAM so we recommend at least the $837 configuration which comes with a Core i5 and 16GB.
Also be sure to check out our ThinkPad X1 Carbon deals page if you’re more of a Lenovo person, or our Best Laptop Deals hub if neither of these options pique your interest.
Best Dell XPS 13 (9310) Deals
The Dell XPS 13 9310 is the first XPS 13 laptop to use an 11th gen Intel chip, which means it’s also the first XPS 13 laptop to have Intel Iris Xe graphics and Thunderbolt 4 compatibility. That extra power does mean it loses about an hour and a half of battery life compared to its 10th gen predecessor, but that still leaves with about 11 hours of usability. This is a recent machine, so deals are likely to be difficult to come by, but we’ll post any we find below.
The Cheapest Older XPS 13 Model Deals
If you don’t need to have a top-of-the-line machine, older Dell XPS 13s are still plenty easy to recommend. XPS 13 9300s have the same 1920 x 1200 touchscreen option (or a 4K option) as the 9310, and many older XPS 13s have older 10th gen Intel chips that are still likely to be relevant for a few more years. The 9300 also beats its Tiger Lake successor on battery life by about an hour and a half, landing at 12:39 hours of life on our benchmarks. And because these machines have now been outclassed by the 9310, they’re more likely to have cheaper deals, which we’ll post below.
