Microsoft store [microsoft.com] has Dell XPS 13 laptop with 8th gen i5 for $749.

The cheapest I've seen in other places is Amazon [amazon.com]which sells it for $879. Dell online [dell.com] has the similar model with 7th gen i5 for $899 on sale.

Although it's sold out online, you can find some in your local store. I picked one up at the Mission Viejo location and they said they had multiple in stock.

Description
  • Intel 8th Generation Quad-Core i5-8250U 1.60 GHz (Turbo 3.40 GHz, 4 Cores 8 Threads, 6MB SmartCache)
  • 13.3" Anti-Glare InfinityEdge Touchscreen FHD (1920x1080) Display
  • 128GB M.2 SSD | 8GB 1866MHz LPDDR3 RAM
  • Backlit Keyboard | Wireless-AC + Bluetooth combo | HD Webcam | \

Weak. 128gb, ddr3, i5. Hard pass, thanks for posting tho!
It's alright. Ssd can be upgraded. And btw, the cpu is 8th gen, so you will have 4 cores.

Good price for a brand new, but you can do better at Dell Outlet for a refurbished

And the difference in actual performance between ddr3 and ddr4 on this laptop would be?

Mainly lower voltage and thus less power consumption. Barely since this is low voltage DDR3, but still some gains. And any performance gains from higher clock rates. Maximum capacity isn't really an issue here, but DDR4 has much higher capacity when the time for that comes.

8th gen i5 (which is quad core) is plenty fast for most people.

I'm out of touch, what laptops (and chips) support lpddr4 for lower voltage? Any XPS models?

Since low voltage DDR4 isn't supported by intel chipsets yet, it's less power efficient than LPDDR3 at idle, which is most of what these laptops do anyways. As for higher maximum capacity... it's soldered onto the motherboard, so that's kind of moot.

Once LPDDR4 support comes out, that will take over this market, even the new Dell XPS13 9370 is still DDR3 for this reason.

Just curious, at what times do you expect to notice the difference between ddr3 and ddr4, and the i5-8250 and the i7-8550?

I got a new XPS 13 i7 8th gen the from the Dell outlet for around $800 two weeks ago. The machine is amazingly flawless. However, there is a dim issue with the screen so once you get it I would recommend going to the dell website to download the tool to fix the issue with the panel and search the web for a good ICU profile and your screen will be amazingly beautiful afterwards. I decided not to get the qhd touch version of this because it would end up being an extra $300 which I wouldn't use as much. However, if you like to edit photos, or use Adobe Photoshop or make movies, I would get the qhd version. The weight feels like you're holding a small 90 page notebook and the size is small but looks and feels top notch quality even when compared to my wife's new Spectre x360 15".
