Deal | Dell Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 with 11th gen Core i5-1135G7 now available for $650 USD, is probably the least expensive Tiger Lake laptop at launch
Intel's 11th gen platform will become widely available on more laptops by the end of this month across a range of manufacturers and SKUs. Fortunately, this means that users won't need to spend $1000 or more just to be an early adopter of Intel's fancy new processor.
One particular deal is the Dell Inspiron 14 5000 2-in-1 equipped with the Tiger Lake Core i5-1135G7 CPU for a final retail price of $650 USD after applying the code '50OFF699' at checkout. It may not be a Core i7, but a Core i5 will be more than enough for casual browsing, streaming, and student use. The integrated Iris Xe GPU will make light editing and gaming possible as well without needing to spend hundreds more on a laptop with dedicated GeForce MX graphics.
Some drawbacks to keep in mind are the 8 GB of single-channel RAM and outdated 768p resolution display. RAM is fortunately upgradeable and we recommend selecting the 1080p option instead for an extra $50 USD. The higher native resolution is a vital because upgrade because 768p has no place on a 14-inch Windows convertible.
Expect many more Tiger Lake and especially Ice Lake deals in the weeks ahead as retailers gear up for the impending Holiday shopping season.
