While at one time Apple MacBooks may have seemed like the be-all and end-all of the laptop world, that time has quickly passed. There are now plenty more laptop options on the market, some of which even outperform the competition. 

Dell proves that with one of its marquee laptops — the Dell XPS 13 9360 — a staple of Dell's product line since the early '90s. Lucky for you, this powerhouse laptop is currently on sale in the PCMag shop and for cheaper than the price we're seeing on Amazon for a refurbished version.

Snag a brand new Dell XPS 13 9360 for $1,249.99 — $150 off the original price of $1,399.99.

The XPS 13 touchscreen model weighs in a 2.9 lbs, uses Dell's borderless InfinityEdge display, and is a PCMag Editor's Choice selection. It comes packed with an Intel Core i7-7560 processor with 16GB of RAM for impressive speeds right out of the box. (But wait, there's more!) The 1TB SSD ensures you'll always have enough space to save those work files and all the new movies and shows you downloaded from completely legitimate websites. The SSD will give the speeds a little extra punch so there's never any slowdown either. Imagine Usain Bolt in laptop form.

But is it really better than a MacBook? The answer is very simple: yes. 1TB SSDs typically cost $1000 from Apple and will bump up the price of that new MacBook significantly. You'd have to go for a more expensive MacBook Air build for a comparable option to the XPS 13
