Dell XPS laptops are among the finest music production laptops that money can buy. In fact, the XPS 13 model narrowly missed the top spot behind Apple's formidable MacBook Pro in our guide to the best laptops for music production

With Christmas on the horizon, maybe you've been thinking about picking up a new laptop to make 2020 your best music-making year yet? Now could be the time to strike with Dell offering considerable discounts right now, complete with free shipping.

If you live in the US, Dell is currently running a one day only offer (opens in new tab) on a tastily specced XPS 13. This model features a punchy 8th Generation Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB memory. Add to that a 256GB solid state hard drive and lush 13.3" FHD display, and you have one powerful, portable music production machine. 

The only thing better than that spec is the crazy price. Right now, you can own one for $400 off the retail price, dropping it from $1,199.99, down to an unbelievable $799.99. It's a total no-brainer.

There are also plenty of deals to be had in the UK on even more powerful machines. Get your hands on a model featuring the 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, with a 1TB hard drive and 16GB memory and enjoy a £220 saving, dropping the price from £1,818.99, to £1,599 (opens in new tab).

Get the same laptop with a 512GB hard drive and you'll pay just £1,299 (opens in new tab) (down from £1,468.99, saving £169.99).

Too much machine for you? The Core i5 model, complete with 256GB hard drive and 8GB memory, is a snip at £1,149 (opens in new tab), including a decent £70 discount.

With limited quantities available, you’ll need to be quick if you want to take advantage of these offers. Get one while you can, in other words.
