[Dell] Dell XPS 15" 1080p 512GB SSD ~$1700 all in

Hi all,

Back from my laptop hunt. I'm unsure of how reliable Dell is however I stumbled (At least IMO) upon a decent deal. So they have the Dell XPS 15" fully maxed FHD model for $2100. Put in the $150OFF$1700PC coupon code will bring it down to $1950.
Then add on the 15% eBates and the 3% Dell Membership Rewards + 1-2% Cashback from your card = ~$1900.

Dell XPS 15"

Intel Core i7-7700HQ
16GB DDR4 2400Mhz RAM
15.6" FHD InfinityEdge, Non-Touch
1TB PCIe SSD
nVidia GTX 1050 4GB GDDR5
Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 Wifi
97Whr battery

Pretty sure this is one of the better deals.
It's one day only so if you want it, buy it and return it later?

Lol....

Deal above no longer exists -> New FHD Deal:

Dell XPS 15"

Intel Core i7-7700HQ
16GB DDR4 2400Mhz RAM
15.6" FHD InfinityEdge, Non-Touch
512GB PCIe SSD
nVidia GTX 1050 4GB GDDR5
Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 Wifi
97Whr battery

Total is $1950. Using the Dell School/Members Discount brings it to $1910. Add the $150OFF$1700PC and it comes down to $1760. eBates 15% cashback eliminates the taxes (Ontario). All in is around $1700.

Mmmm, I just picked up an early 2013 mbp 15inch retina, 16gb + 500gb ssd for $800.

Was eyeing the xps 15 for awhile... too bad DFS don't have 0%.

Good deal but tragically the FHD panel has terrible response rates leading to blurry motion

Otherwise, smoking good deal.

The GTX 1050 was the kill for me. Need a minimum GTX 1060 in a small chassis. Ended up picking up a MSI GS63VR

there's also $1300 in the difference.

That's essentially an XPS 13 right there, which I also got.

+$2000 for a FHD? No thanks. And most people don't need an i7. Downgrade the CPU and upgrade the screen and that becomes more interesting.

Just in case someone really want something like this, you can sign up for dell newsletter for a 10% off code, it won't stack with 150 off 1700, but you can do the math on which is better

Let me try my hand at this. I value the high def touch screen more as I heard it is decent. This model I reference is only 8 gig ram and 256 g ssd drive. But I think you can upgrade both later anyways.

1) go to to www.dell.ca/mpp and get a cheaper discount on the website.
2) I prefere this model http://www.dell.com/en-ca/member/shop/d ... _bt_s1640e
3) use the two coupons "$150OFF$1700PC" and "10%OFFXPS"
4) This should bring the laptop down to $1793.39 before tax

The price above is before 15% ebates and the 3% dell advantage member credit. Also, if you have any 1-2% credit back cards, you can add up more savings.

I tried a couple models, and the 10%OFFXPS only works on a few models that I know of. Please note that the upgrade from FHD to touch is usually $400 price difference.

I was tempted to buy this this, but I can't justify buying it when I already have a working laptop. My main usage is to do amateur photography and some light gaming, but I cheap out and bought a heavier Dell 15 gaming laptop last year for 900 dollars.

There is some method of logging on in how to get this discount with ebates, but dont ask me as I never done this. I am sure there are more educated and experienced RFDers that ca explain the process.

There is only one kind of battery for all xps 15 right?

XPS 15 is one heck of machine in terms of design and quality. I haven't found another windows laptop that is equal to its quality. But you are almost paying double for the actual spec. It is up to you whether it is worth it for you.

Another thing to note is, you can often find QHD assembly as little as $150. It is very easy to swap.
