It's tough for us to recommend a Windows laptop with just 4 GB of RAM especially when it's not upgradeable. Even so, the option must still appeal to a lot of users since Dell insists on making 4 GB SKUs even for its best-selling laptop series.

The XPS series is marketed as Dell's flagship PC series for consumers. It's supposed to be a step up from the less expensive Inspiron series in terms of build quality and form factor. Nonetheless, we're still flabbergasted that the manufacturer continues to offer very low specifications for what should otherwise be a top-of-the-line laptop.

Last year's XPS 13 7390 with the Intel 10th gen Core i5-10210U CPU is now on sale at Dell.com for $643 USD when applying the code 'SAVE10'. The laptop comes with one of the best displays we've seen on any Windows Ultrabook especially at this low of a price range. Its built-in support for Thunderbolt 3 is another icing on the cake.

The main drawbacks to the deal are the measly 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 128 GB SSD. While the latter is thankfully user-upgradeable, the former is soldered. Dell gives the option to double the RAM and storage for an extra $100 USD, but it's such a shame that budget-conscious users can't do it themselves.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
