Get a powerful Core i7 Dell laptop for only $500 with this $300 coupon code

A version of the Dell Inspiron 15 5566 is available from Dell's business store today for $500.

Today, you can get a high-performing Core i7 laptop for just $500—a truly rare and enticing deal. Dell’s business store sells the Dell Inspiron 15 5566 with an Intel “Kaby Lake” Core i7-7500U for $800, but if you use the code SAVEEXTRA300 at checkout, it takes $300 off your order and drops down to the $500 sale price.

Kaby Lake isn't Intel's latest and greatest CPU architecture, as the company recently released newer 8th-gen Core processors. Nevertheless, the Core i7-7500U delivers stellar performance compared to what you'd normally get for $500. It's a 2.7GHz dual-core processor with Hyper-Threading and the ability to boost up to 3.5GHz as needed.

Beyond the processor, you also get a 15.6-inch display with 1366-by-768 resolution, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. Wireless connectivity includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi (2.4GHz only) and Bluetooth 4.0. There’s also a DVD drive, an SD card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0, ethernet, and HDMI 1.4 out. The DVD drive and the hard drive push the weight of this laptop just past the comfortable weight limit at 5.19 pounds.

This is a business-focused laptop so the screen resolution isn’t as high as we’d like, and that hard drive could also be swapped for an SSD for faster performance. But don't be fooled: A laptop with a Core i7 chip for $500 is a stellar deal, period. You can always add an SSD at a later date if you don’t mind a little DIY.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
