Thank you so much for this beneficial forum! After reading a few post and gathering all the discount codes, I have narrowed my choices down to two laptops. I am including the specifications and prices with taxes, all discounts and ebates in.

Please let me know what looks like a better deal. I plan on using this as my main laptop for at least 5 years. I mostly use word processing, excel, mothur, beginner R and python.

XPS 13 Non-Touch rose gold
$1268 after ebates
Processor 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-7200U (3MB Cache, up to 3.1 GHz)
memory 8GB LPDDR3 1866MHz
Hard Drive 256GB PCIe Solid State Drive

XPS 15 9560 Non-touch
$1897 after ebates
Processor 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Quad Core Processor (6M cache, up to 3.8 GHz
Memory 16GB DDR4-2400MHz; up to 32GB (additional memory sold separately)
Hard Drive 512GB PCIe Solid State Drive
Video Card NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 with 4GB GDDR5

Any advice about accidental warranty? Is $630 extra worth it if I am not a video or photo editor?
Is 1897 after or before taxes? What codes/cash back did you use?

Not to mention the opportunity of upgrading the SSD down the line will also help future-proof the computer. The M.2 SSDs are getting faster and cheaper every year. I don't see them not becoming significantly more affordable in a few years that will help the computer stay very responsive even five years (assuming one also possibly upgrades RAM)
true but I didn't mention it because you can upgrade the ssd in the 13 too. the ram is the one thing you can't in the 13 which is a shame. yes, you can get the 16gb customization but it becomes one pricey laptop. might as well get the 15 and upgrade down the road

Trying to get the employee pricing from Page 1 and while I can get to the page that shows XPS 15s starting at 1371, as soon as I click further, prices revert back to normal. Am I doing something wrong?

Works for dell.ca – not sure about dell.com or any other international sites. Basically here’s what you need to do to get to the same end result.
1) Log into your account and join Dell Advantage Program to get 5% back to spend on accessories
2) Go to Dell Canada EPP: www.dell.com/learn/ca/en/cadhs1/campaigns/mpp-ca?l=en
3) Click on ‘Employees’ at the bottom. Click on ‘laptops’ at the top, then select ‘XPS: For the ultimate experience’ and scroll to the very bottom to see the New XPS 15 starting at $1,322.99, close the page.
4) Open ebates.ca 2% dell.ca cashback link in the same browser
5) Click on ‘laptops’ at the top, then select ‘XPS: For the ultimate experience’ and scroll to the very bottom to see the New XPS 15 starting at $1,322.99
6) Optionally check you’re still still on the Canada site.
7) Select your model
8) Enter coupon 10%OFFXPS (from http://www.dell.com/ca/p/xps-15-9550-la ... hs1&~ck=mn)
9) Enter coupon $150OFF$1699PC or $100OFF$1299PC (from here http://www.dell.com/learn/ca/en/cadhs1/ ... a-dhs?l=en). Note: The 10% off count toward the $1699 minimum.


Example, I just ordered the $2,199.99 laptop for 1,793.39 (-$220, - $150, -$36.60 EPP) + environmental fee + tax = CAD2,027.66
I’ll get a $89.67 card to spend on something else, $35.87 back from ebates and of course also CB from my cc.
Just bought one of these using your steps. I just want to say a huge thank you!! Saved like almost 400 bucks on this thing!! Cheers!!!!!!!!!

I think I may have miscalculated ebates, so it ends up to be around $1920. The subtotal I have is $1831 then $275 tax minus $188 cashback from ebates.

I used the steps posted by hostlead, as follows:

1) Create Ebates account and download ebates toolbar for chrome (10% cashback after purchase)
2) Create Dell account (5% cashback)
3) Go to dell.ca/mpp and select Employee
4) Activate ebates discount
4) Add the dell XPS 15 with 10%OFFXPS to cart
5) While in the cart use the following discount codes
a) $150OFF$1700PC
b) MEMBER50OFF699
c) 10%OFFXPS

I ordered it, but I am still not sure as my original budget was $1000 to $1500. I may just return and get the XPS 13 or Inspiron 13 7000.

did you have to make an account to apply the codes? I'm just testing it out and the codes do not work. (dell xps 13)

Oh yes good point too, yes Dell has a Intel Driver block.

You can either use this method (Device Manager), or uninstall the Graphics Driver from Control Panel completely then install the one off the Intel site (pull your network when you uninstall so it doesn't auto reinstall the Dell Version).
Can you elaborate (or PM) on how to do this? I just bought a XPS 15 and would like to learn!

Just wanted to bump this up. Has anyone been able to get this method to work lately?

I have tried several times with no luck but if I clear my browser history and copy and paste the link from the first page it goes through properly...so try clearing your browser.

I am still on the fence about the XPS 13 after reading so many poor reviews...but I really want one...but I AM the guy who will keep getting faulty units.

For some reason my xps 15 is sooo laggy. When I use chrome to watch YouTube sometimes the whole browser just freezes. Then eventually responds again. What is wrong?

I browsed a few pages back - could it be this?

Managed to get it down to $1799.99 with the coupons.

After tax and ebates, come to about $1854 all-in.
