Choosing a new laptop for making music is a massive decision, with so many options available it can be one of the more confusing - and expensive - purchases you'll make when it comes to music gear. Plus it's one you're going to have to live with for potentially years until your next upgrade. With all of us feeling the pinch at the moment, the opportunity to save cash is a welcome one, particularly when it comes to our hobbies, which is why the current Dell laptop sale (opens in new tab) is music to our ears.

In our guide to the best laptops for music production we heartily recommend the Dell XPS 13 (and it's larger 15-inch counterpart) as super capable machines for music production needs, and a great alternative to Apple's MacBook Pro.

President's Day is on the horizon (landing on Monday 21 February), but Dell has jumped the gun with its own sale offering some phenomenal price reductions and great deals on XPS 13 and 15 laptop models. What's more, any purchase is eligible for free shipping.

We've sifted through the sale to find the most music-friendly specs being discounted right now.
