Geek deals Save an easy 100 on the Dell XPS 15 laptop

first_imgHas the boutique laptop died out? In the early 2000’s, boutique PCs were heavily featured in all the computer magazines with their unique designs, ridiculously over the top components, and equally ridiculous price tags. The death knell probably started with Dell’s purchase of Alienware and the last shovel of dirt thrown when HP effectively killed their recently bought VoodooPC division.But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. There are still a few boutique manufacturers around, the newest being PC-newcomer Razer, but the mainstream companies have taken many of the boutique PC attributes and added the value inherent in mass production. These days you can get a well loaded laptop for under a grand, with high end, if not 100% bleeding edge, components.Our deal today is a perfect example of this new age beast: Dell’s XPS 15 is a 15-inch machine that shares much in common with the mainstream Inspiron lineup, but much like a muscle car has had some powerful guts stuffed inside. Thanks for a special $100 coupon and a hefty instant discount, you can snag a quad-core Sandy Bridge Core i7, 6GB RAM, 750GB hard drive, 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M with Optimus, and 2 year warranty with your XPS 15 for only $899. The closest deal I’ve seen that comes close to this are some of Lenovo’s IdeaPads and HP’s Pavilions that get you similar components, but with less powerful graphics and a shorter warranty. Needless to say, Dell’s not holding back much on this deal.If high resolution is more your preference, as it is mine, you can step up to a 1080p screen and Blu-ray drive for $100 more, though you do only get the 1GB GeForce GT 525M graphics card. No matter which way you go, these XPS 15 deals are beastly in performance and value. Unfortunately, the coupon will expire after limited uses, so get to clicking if this whets your appetite.Visit Logic Buy to buy the Dell XPS 15 laptoplast_img read more
