Best Black Friday Dell XPS deals
How to choose a Dell XPS during Black Friday
There are three different Dell XPS models, broken down by size: The Dell XPS 13, Dell XPS 15, and Dell XPS 17. The Dell XPS 13 and XPS 15 are available in both standard and 2-in-1 configurations and all three models feature optional touchscreens as well. Resolutions for both touch and non-touch displays on Dell XPS laptops run the gamut from 1080p to 4K Ultra HD, so you’ve got some options there, too.
Once you’ve narrowed down your choice to what size you like — the Dell XPS 13 being the most portable, the XPS 17 being a large “desktop replacement”-style laptop, and the XPS hitting a sweet spot in between the other two — then you’ll want to decide what style of laptop you want. Do you favor a traditional design or a 2-in-1 convertible with a fold-flat touchscreen? The Dell XPS 13 is our favorite 2-in-1 in the Dell lineup, but the XPS 15 is also available with a fold-flat touch display and gives you a lot of versatility along with some extra screen real estate. Just bear in mind that you are going to pay more for that 2-in-1 versatility.
That said, all of the Dell XPS laptops are available with optional touchscreens (which don’t command as large of a premium as the convertible models), so you can still get some of that convenience if you don’t want to shell out that much cash for the bells and whistles of a 2-in-1. Finally, you’ll need to consider specs. All of the Dell XPS laptops come with good, up-to-date hardware including current-generation Intel Core CPUs and fast solid-state drives, and it’s worth noting that the larger XPS 15 and XPS 17 models are also available with dedicated Nvidia graphics cards if you need something with a bit more juice for things like gaming and video rendering — so it’s no surprise they’re some of the best laptops on the shelves.
Where to find the best Dell XPS sales
- Amazon Black Friday: Although Amazon isn’t the hottest place for laptop deals, you can often find discounted Dell XPS laptops on this huge online outlet and third-party sellers also offer their own deals through Amazon. Amazon is rolling out new every day through November 19, too, so check back daily for a chance to grab any Black Friday Dell XPS deals that may pop up before the retailer’s official Black Friday sale kicks off.
- Best Buy Black Friday: Best Buy is one of the better places to find discounts on Dell’s premium XPS ultrabooks. There are currently some Black Friday Dell XPS deals running on popular models like the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 and the XPS 15 with a dedicated GPU.
- Walmart Black Friday: Walmart’s offerings are similar to Amazon’s in that, while it doesn’t run Dell XPS deals year-round, they do pop up and there are a lot of third-party sellers that run their own sales and discounts on the site. This big box store hasn’t offered any official Dell XPS deals just yet but it is dropping new rollbacks every weekend before its official Black Friday sale arrives, so keep an eye on it.
