Those looking for a notebook jam-packed with an 1080p display, core i7 CPU, dual hard drives, top graphics, JBL speakers and an HD webcam, look no further. Dell’s XPS has all that and more, and today it’s selling for $465 off. Originally $1,415, the Dell XPS 17 is selling today for $950 plus free shipping through a deal with LogicBUY.
When we reviewed the unit, we gave it three and a half out of five stars for its fast overall performance, 1080p display with wide viewing angles, solid speakers and two USB 3.0 ports. We thought it could improve on its below-average Wi-Fi throughput and its steep price.
