XPS is arguably the best consumer line of laptops that Dell has going now. They usually have more power than the popular Inspiron line, offer parts upgrades that aren’t too pricey, all while being relatively easy on the eyes.This particular deal on a Dell XPS 15 is a great example. For $449 off the retail price, this build lands you a quad-core setup with Core i7 processors, 8GB RAM, discrete NVIDIA GeForce 540M graphics (2GB), and a spacious 1TB hard drive. It’s not super slim or light at 5.96lbs., but it’s still easy enough to tote around and powerful enough to supplant most desktops.It’s a fairly serious configuration and in the same general price range as those come-hither ultrabooks, which don’t offer nearly as much horsepower or space. Additionally, a Blu-ray player and burner comes built in, along with 2.1 JBL speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3 and a 2MP webcam. The HDMI, DisplayPort, and two USB 3.0 inputs are a nice addition, and the TV tuner might be the best-kept secret on this laptop.This model also has a 1080p display, which is pretty unusual for even high-end laptops, unless you’re willing to pay for the upgrade. Usually, all these extra would tack hundreds of dollars onto the price. Instead, Dell has it up for offer at a 27% discount, at $1199 for a nicely outfitted system.Check out this deal on LogicBuy.
