It was just yesterday that we were looking at a deal on the XPS 14, and now we have its bigger brother on special (the XPS 17) with up to $235 off. Of course, to get this much off, your configuration exceeds $1,615, netting you a pretty beefed up laptop for $1,379 shipped. “A base configuration includes Core i5-460M 2.53GHz CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M 1GB Optimus graphics, 4GB DDR3, 500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive, 17.3″ HD+ 900p WLED LCD.” However this bad boy kicks it up a couple notches:
Core i7-740QM 1.73GHz Quad-core, 6GB DDR3, 640GB 7200RPM Hard Drive, Blu-ray DVD+/-RW, 802.11n + WiMAX, 900p WLED LCD, 9-cell battery, GeForce GT 445M 3GB, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
