As much as we love reviewing the latest CPUs and gaming laptops, nothing thrills us like finding a good deal. In fact, our motto at Tom's Hardware is "never pay retail." Like all technology, CPUs, SSDs, and laptops drop in price the minute they're released. Sometimes, you can even score deals before they hit the market.
Below we're rounding up the day's best deals, from discounts on laptops and Chromebooks to deals on gaming monitors and SSDs. So before you smash that buy button, check out the best tech deals of the day.
Tom's Hardware sorts through thousands of deals to offer the best prices from the trustworthy retailers. While all of our reviews are researched and written independently, Tom's Hardware is a participant in a number of affiliate programs designed to provide a means for sites to earn fees for linking to online retailers.
Dell's XPS 13 laptops are on sale this week. Coupon code "100OFF999" takes $100 off any XPS 13 (9380) laptop configuration priced at $999 or more. However, we suggest you be wary of Dell's sale. Dell (via its eBay Store) is selling the XPS 13 (9380) with a Core i7-8565U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD for $949.99. That same machine costs $1,124.99 after coupon via Dell's direct site.
Select XPS 13 (7390) machines are also on sale via coupon "SAVE10", but the coupon only applies to the higher end configs. (Also, prices were cheaper last week when the coupon applied to every config). Dell's sale ends October 10 at 8am ET.
Meanwhile, Lenovo continues to take up to $600 off its Legion gaming laptops and desktops via coupon code "TWITCHCON19". After discount, Legion desktops start at $799.99, whereas notebooks start at $849.99. For instance, you can score the Lenovo Legion Y545 for $799.99 after coupon. It sports a Core i5-9300H CPU, 8GB of RAM, 1TB 7,200 rpm HDD, and a GTX 1650 GPU. Lenovo's sale is valid through October 4.
