Good news if you missed Dell's Labor Day sale earlier this week. The retailer is doubling down on some of its sales and taking 17% off its best laptops and desktops during its Semi-Annual Sale. The sale even includes the new XPS with 10th-gen Intel CPU.
Generally speaking, you can always find a sale at Dell. The manufacturer tends to offer 5% and 10% off discounts practically every month. But 17% off discounts are harder to come by. So we're hand-picking the best deals in Dell's Semi-Annual Sale below.

If you're looking for the best value in the sale, it's hard to bypass the XPS 15 (7590). It's the smallest 15.6-inch laptop around and you can take 17% off the entire XPS 15 family with coupon "SAVE17".
Sister site LaptopMag gave the XPS 15 an Editor's Choice award for its awesome design and performance. While we'd normally shy away from the base model, the XPS 15's base model should suit most users' needs.
The XPS 13 (9380) is another great pick, and while it was $1,029.99 on Labor Day, that model packed a Core i5-8265U CPU, whereas this one packs an upgraded Core i7-8565U. However, we're inclined to recommend the XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390), which is $1,452.49 via code "SAVE17". It sports a brand new 10th-gen Intel CPU and it's the first time this machine goes on sale.
Both Alienware rigs were slightly cheaper on Labor Day, but are still excellent buys and priced well below their normal price.
Dell's coupon is valid through September 19 at 8am ET.
