Dell has a couple of standout offers in its deals section at the moment. Shoppers can get a hefty discount on a brand-new Dell XPS 13 powered by an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, or if you fancy something much bigger the manufacturer has knocked US$860 off the price of an Alienware 17 gaming laptop, which comes with an 8th Gen Coffee Lake SoC and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 OC GPU.

Great deals can be found in both the Dell XPS and Alienware ranges at the moment. The best savings are to be had on specific SKUs, such as the Dell XPS 13 (9380) in rose gold. If you don’t mind owning a laptop that isn’t silver, gray, or black then this option could be a great choice for you. The portable device comes with the above-mentioned energy-efficient Whiskey Lake CPU, a fast 256 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, and 8 GB RAM.

Graphics for this rose-gold Dell XPS 13 are processed by the UHD Graphics 620 iGPU and the 13.3-inch display is a 4K Ultra HD (3840x2160) touch panel surrounded by Dell’s narrow “InfinityEdge” bezels. The normal price for this laptop is US$1,828.99 but the current offered price is US$1,399.99, which is a saving of US$429. For those who are concerned, the webcam in this model is located in the top bezel, so there will be no “nose cam” issues with this laptop.

Dell is also offering a huge discount of US$860 on the Alienware 17, although this particular model will still set you back US$2,199.99 even with the discount (listed price: US$3,059.99). Unsurprisingly, this gaming laptop comes with powerful components: Intel Core i9-8950HK, GeForce GTX 1070 OC 8GB, 256 GB M.2 PCIe SSD + 1 TB 7200 rpm HDD, and 16 GB 2666 MHz RAM.

The Alienware 17 is coated in the appropriately named Epic Silver color and the 17.3-inch screen offers QHD resolution (2560x1440). A high refresh rate of 120 Hz and the integration of Nvidia’s G-Sync technology ensure gamers get maximum FPS rates in titles with graphics smoothly displayed. The laptop is also VR-ready for those who want to take their gaming experiences to a different level.
