The best cheap Dell laptop deals and prices for August 2020

Image Description

We probably don't have to tell you that Dell makes some of the best laptops around, but did you know they are also some of the most affordable as well? If you know where to look, there’s a wide variety of Dell laptop deals to be found on the internet, with retailers ranging from Amazon to Walmart to Dell themselves offering low prices.

Nevertheless, there are several different varieties of laptop from which to choose when shopping around for a new Dell. The Inspiron line ranges from entry- to mid-grade laptops, while the XPS delivers flagship-level power in attractive chassises.

With so many options, it can be hard to pin down all the best Dell laptop deals in all of these categories and product lines. To make it easier, we’ve taken care of the leg work for you, recording all of the top Dell laptop deals onto a single page. Read on to find the one that's right for you!

You'll also find a range of laptops featured in the best back to school sales of 2020, so be sure to check out more discounts here.

Dell XPS 13

A powerful yet slim 13-inch laptop

CPU: 8th generation Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Screen: 13.3-inch FHD (1,920 x 1,080) – 4k (3840 x 2160) | Storage: 256GB – 1TB SSD

Impressive battery life
Updated processor
HD webcam on top of the display

Like any other notebook maker with its leading product, Dell runs deals on its XPS 13 line rather frequently, just not as good or as often as, say, its mid-range Inspiron lineup. Being Dell's most sought-after laptop, though, it makes sense. 

With up to a 13.3-inch, 3K IPS touchscreen inside an 11-inch aluminum frame, Intel's latest Core i processors as well as Thunderbolt 3 and an SD card slot, the XPS 13 is ready for all kinds of work and play.

Below, you'll find the best deals we could find on the XPS 13 in the UK, US and Australia. Just note that most XPS 13 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Dell XPS 15

A high performance laptop with portability

CPU: Intel Core i5-i7 | Graphics: Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics with 4GB HMB2 Graphics Memory | RAM: 8GB | Screen: 15.6-inch | Storage: 512GB PCIe SSD

Powerful graphics performance
Vivid 4K display
Long-lasting battery

The XPS 15 is, frankly, a larger XPS 13. However, that extra space inside the 14-inch frame (fitting a 15.6-inch version of that beautiful screen) allows for Nvidia's GTX 1050 mobile graphics chip.

All else equal, this makes the XPS 15 even more suitable for professionals and players alike, though considerably less portable. And, of course, a larger screen asks for a larger price tag.

Below are the best deals we could muster on the XPS 15 in the UK, US and Australia. We'll say it again: note that most XPS 15 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Dell Inspiron 11

The cheapest 2-in-1 convertible laptop you'll find

CPU: Intel Core i5-i7 | Graphics: Radeon RX Vega M GL Graphics with 4GB HMB2 Graphics Memory | RAM: 8GB | Screen: 11.6-inch | Storage: 512GB PCIe SSD

Touch screen
Multiple color options

Dell's best Windows-based answer to the Chromebook legion is the Inspiron 11. A tiny bit of power to inhabit such a tiny price, this laptop is ideal for students of basically all ages, but not for those in computing intense fields (i.e. animation, media editing, etc), and anyone seeking a cheap way to get online.

Since this is nearly the least expensive laptop money can buy, deals on these are few and far in between.

Below are the best deals we could muster on the Inspiron 11 in the UK, US and Australia. Note that most Inspiron 11 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Dell Inspiron 14

A budget entry-level laptop

CPU: 7th Generation AMD A6-9220e Processor | Graphics: Radeonâ„¢ R4 Graphics | RAM: 4096 MB | Screen: 14-inch | Storage: 32GB eMMC

Long battery life
MaxxAudio enhanced speakers

This is one of Dell’s most entry-level laptops, but it has recently been retooled to make it feel like anything but. With expandable storage and an HD webcam, you’re looking at a fine companion for the college student or a suitable laptop for mom and dad.

It won’t do much of any gaming, but its processor should stream movies at 720p just fine. As a family photo repository or a device for keeping in touch with the kids – or heck, writing that thesis – the Inspiron 14 is a consummate Chromebook challenger.

Below are the best deals we could muster on the Inspiron 14 in the UK, US and Australia. Note that most Inspiron 14 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Dell Inspiron 15

A convertible gaming laptop

CPU: 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8265U Processor | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 with shared graphics memory | RAM: 8GB | Screen: 15.6-inch | Storage: 256GB

4K touch-screen display
Flexible 2-in-1 design
Built-in subwoofer

For whatever reason, we’ve been told by Dell and other computer makers that people really dig huge laptops with legacy features. Hence, the Inspiron 15 7000 is among Dell’s most popular, so much so that there are always deals available for the device that clings onto what Apple has long forgotten: SD cards and DVDs.

Of course, don't go expecting MacBook-like levels of performance here – not even close. But, if you still have a dear DVD collection, this may be the 15-inch laptop for you.

Dell Inspiron 13 7000

A premium 2-in-1 convertible laptop

CPU: 4 GHz Intel Core i7 | Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620 | RAM: 8GB | Screen: 13.3-inch | Storage: 256GB

Sleep aluminum design
Powerful performance
Windows Hello support

Perhaps you want a smaller, lighter and more varied experience (like we would). In that case, this version of the Inspiron might be your scene.

It's slick, lightweight, and offers several ways to use it – just like the XPS 13 2-in-1 (save for the immensely powerful hardware and beautiful screen). Though, for most folks, what's inside this hybrid laptop is just fine.

Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming

A fantastic budget gaming laptop

CPU: 7th-generation Intel Quad-Core i5-7300HQ 2.50 GHz | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 | RAM: 8GB DDR4 | Screen: 15.6-inch | Storage: 1TB 5400 rpm

Powerful GPU
Long-lasting battery
Affordable

For those seeking a gaming laptop without putting a dent in their life savings, the Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming might be your best bet. It's essentially a souped-up version of the standard 15-incher, but with far stronger graphics.

Of course, don't go expecting Alienware 15-level performance here. But what this Inspiron offers should be enough for fine 1080p gaming at moderate settings. So, it's no wonder why folks are interested in saving even more on it.

Below are the best deals we could muster on the Inspiron 15 Gaming in the UK, US and Australia. Note that most Inspiron 15 Gaming deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Alienware 13

A slim and sleek OLED gaming laptop

CPU: Intel Core i7-6500U 2.5GHz | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M Graphics | RAM: 16GB | Screen: 13.3-inch | Storage: 256GB

Stunning OLED display
Slim, sleek design
Impressive graphics and performance

Dell's Alienware brand of gaming laptops looks better than ever today, though sadly it seems to be pricier than ever as well. For example, the starting Alienware 13 model comes with an HD screen at 1,366 x 768 resolution.

Luckily the component options quickly scale up from there, but of course so does the pricing. With an absolutely beautiful OLED display on the table, we'll take whatever deal we can get.

Below are the best deals we could muster on the Alienware 13 in the UK, US and Australia. Note that most Alienware 13 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

Alienware 15

A fast performing gaming laptop

CPU: 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H | Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB GDDR5X with Max-Q Design | RAM: 16GB | Screen: 15.6-inch | Storage: 256GB

Powerful performance
120 Hz display
Portable

Those seeking the newest Nvidia graphics behind screens fine-tuned for gaming are well-treated by Dell’s Alienware brand. Notoriously pricey, any deal you can get on Alienware hardware is worth considering if you want a gaming laptop not just with powerful components but strong style and support.

The Alienware 15 simply expands upon Dell's fresh new design, bringing with it access to Nvidia's mid-tier GTX 1070 mobile graphics for even more power. This model also comes starting with an FHD (1,920 x 1,080) screen – phew!

These are the best deals we could find on the Alienware 15 in the UK, US and Australia. Note that most Alienware 15 deals listed are with entry-level specs, so check to make sure whether the version you want has the hardware you want inside, too.

  • iPad Air 5 release date rumors, news, leaks and what we want to see

    If leaks are to be believed then the iPad Air 5 might land sooner rather than later, which makes sense, as the iPad Air 4 is getting on a bit now.

    The first three generations of iPad Air had all sported a fairly similar look, but the iPad Air 4 brought a design overhaul to the series, moving it from merely being a larger entry-level iPad into effectively an 'iPad Pro Lite' device. The 2020 iPad Air hit the shelves with a modern-looking design, generous processing power and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, but without some of the premium features that make the iPad Pro the top-dog tablet.

    So what could the iPad Air 5 bring? Another design update? Improvements to the screen? An extra camera? We've heard that all of these and more might be in the works, and you can read full details of all the leaks and rumors below. We've also put forth a wish list of what we'd like Apple's next generation of tablet to look like.

    This includes fixes to some of the iPad Air 4's niggles, some new features missing from the current edition, and plenty more.

    Latest news

    The iPad Air 5 seems to have been certified by a regulatory organization, suggesting it's landing very soon.

    Cut to the chase

    • What is it? The next generation in Apple's mid-range tablet line
    • How much will it cost? Likely around $599/£579/AU$899
    • When will it be out? Possibly early 2022

    iPad Air 5 release date and price

    iPad Air 4 (2020)

    Apple doesn't generally keep to a yearly release schedule for its iPad Air line, but one is likely due soon, as the iPad Air 4 had its first birthday in October 2021.

    A source has now even specifically said to expect the iPad Air 5 this 'spring', meaning between March and May, while an older leak also suggested an early 2022 announcement. Plus, the slate appears to have been certified by the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission), which further suggests it should be landing soon.

    Price-wise, the iPad Air 4 costs $599/£579/AU$899 for a model with 64GB of storage, with prices going up for more storage or cellular connection. We could see prices for the iPad Air 5 in the same ballpark.

    News and rumors

    We haven't heard much about the iPad Air 5 yet, but one source claims that an iPad Air model launching probably in early 2022 will have a 10.9-inch OLED screen.

    That size is the same as the iPad Air 4, but the technology is different, as current models use LCD. A move to OLED could lead to better contrast and colors, among other upgrades.

    However, more recent whispers about this Apple tablet suggest that OLED isn't working out as Apple wanted, so the iPad Air 5 is going to stick with LCD instead. That's come from not one but two reports now.

    One other source meanwhile didn't mention OLED but did say the iPad Air 5 will have a 10.9-inch screen, along with an A15 Bionic chipset (also found in the iPhone 13 range), plus 5G, a dual-lens camera (with an ultra-wide joining the main one), four stereo speakers, and a design that's similar to the iPad Pro 11 (2021) - though still without Face ID.

    Some of those claims have been reiterated in a more recent leak, saying that the iPad Air 5 will have an A15 Bionic chipset and 5G, along with a similar design to its predecessor (complete with squared edges), a 10.9-inch screen, a single-lens rear camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide front-facing camera.

    What we want to see

    Here's what we want to see in the next iPad Air model.

    1. Generous storage options

    iPad Air 4

    (Image credit: TechRadar)

    The iPad Air 4 is available with two storage options: 64GB, which is unlikely to be enough for most users; and 256GB, which is quite a bit more expensive. 

    Most tablets come with 128GB, because it caters well to the majority, and would work well with iCloud (or your cloud storage tool of choice) for those who require extra storage still.

    We'd like to see the iPad Air 5 arrive with 128GB of storage, with Apple dropping  the 64GB option entirely. The latter may be a suitable provision for entry-level iPads, but is unlikely to ever be sufficient for the types of power-users who would be investing in the iPad Air.

    2. Improved selfie camera

    We took issue with the iPad Air 4's selfie camera – a 7-megapixel unit, it wasn't great for video calling, taking selfies, or recording video of yourself.

    Bumping up those numbers to a 10- or 12-megapixel unit would make the selfie camera more useful. Better still would be the inclusion of iPhone selfie technology.

    3. Even more color choices

    We were pleased to see Apple offer the iPad Air 4 in a range of color options. In particular, we liked the addition of the pastel shades.

    We'd like to see more of the same with the iPad Air 5, with perhaps some new color options too. The iPhone XR and iPhone 12 are available in some great, vibrant colors, so let's see them used more!

    4. Longer-lasting battery

    The iPad Air 4's battery lasted around 10 hours of use. This is similar to that offered by the majority of iPads; 9-12 hours is the quoted figure for general use. If you're using your iPad to watch movies in bed, or work in coffee shops from time-to-time, this is totally acceptable.

    However, if you're a creative using your iPad on a film shoot, a businessperson trying to work on a long-haul flight, or a parent looking to entertain your kids on a long car ride, then you may struggle with that amount.

    We'd like to see the iPad Air 5 boost battery life, or at least include software optimizations that keep the device ticking over for longer.

    5. Better iPad widget handling

    This is more a problem with iPadOS 14 and Apple's software, than iPad hardware, but it's a change we'd welcome.

    One of the key features of iOS 14 is the ability to create widgets based on your apps, and leave them on the home screen for easy use. In iPadOS, you can only add these widgets to a carousel on the 'main' home page, making them difficult to find if you have lots of apps, and therefore much less useful.

    We'd like to see iPadOS 14 improved so you can add widgets to your home menu wherever you like, not just in the same position.

    6. Thinner bezels

    The iPad Air 4 and iPad Pro designs don't sport the huge bezels of the entry-level iPad and iPad Mini, but there remains a pretty chunky border separating the screen from the edge of the tablet.

    A thinner bezel around the iPad Air 5 would offer an improvement to the design, making the tablet's body size more closely match its screen size. This isn't a deal-breaking demand, which is the reason it sits last on this, but thinner bezels always look better – and this is a wish-list, after all.
