I think it has been this price for awhile. I remember checking last week and it had the discount. It is nearly perfect but I wish Microsoft offered a version with 16GB memory!

FYI, it is also a ton cheaper to get a service plan through Microsoft Store. 2 years with accidental damage protection is only $120 if I remember correctly, but something crazy like $350 if you get it through Dell.

FWIW Linus Tech Tips had a great review of the 2018 XPS13 recently.

Just a heads up. If you buy a laptop from Costco the Squaretrade 3 year Accident protection plan costs the following:
Laptop $500 and less - $69.99
Laptops $500 and up - $99.99

Can't beat it

I gave up on my Sam's Club membership and let it expire and am planning on joining Costco next time I need to do a warehouse run, so I'll have to keep an eye out when I do so. What models/specs do they have there for the XPS 13 9370?

That is a good price for 3 year accident protection though! I do like MS Store just because you can walk in there and get it looked at in person, but the extra year over MS and slightly cheaper price are definitely swinging it in that direction. (Also that I can't get a 16GB model at MS Store.)

Looks like this item will be 300 off($1399 after discount) starting 5-23-18 (according to costco member only savings mailer). Also if you use their costco credit card, they double the warranty to 4 years.

Oh man I just bought the ThinkPad X1 Carbon that was on sale there last week! Hmm which do you think is better? I'm digging the X1C and actually kind of like running 1080p on the slightly larger 14" screen (Windows scaling is so f'ed up, especially if you use external monitors, which I do, that I almost prefer the lower res screen). Otherwise the specs are very similar (i7-8550u, 16GB, 512GB). The X1C also has more legacy ports, but honestly for me only having USB-C on the XPS 13 9370 didn't bother me like it seems to others. I can't even remember the last time I plugged a device into my recently current Surface. Tough choice.

Also I don't have the Costco CC but did buy the $99 protection plan with my X1C which extends the warranty to 3 years I believe and also gives accident protection. What is Costco's return policy on laptops + protection plans? I thought it was said somewhere here that it is 90 day no questions? Maybe I'll go in and play with them both and decide...

Costco has a 90 day policy for electronics(use to be more but people abused it). From my experience they don't care as long as its within 90 days.

I like the price of this xps13...but am hesitant due to the screen size(would prefer the xps15). I mainly work from home and would like a portable solution(currently running a 3 monitor PC setup). Folks rave about the xps line build quality. I am tempted to try it out and see if it meets my needs.

The X1C is nice between size at 14", yet still lighter than the XPS 13, and very usable at 1920x1080 with 100% (no) scaling. The second part is very important if you are plugging and unplugging external monitors all the time because the scaling can royally screw up how things look when you dock/undock unless you are willing to log off and on every time you do so. I prefer being able to just plug in and continue off working where I was without having to close everything, log off and back on, and then reopen everything. You can get around that somewhat I believe if you also have a high res monitor that you use the equivalent scaling on so that it is not different between the two.

That being said, the XPS 13 is still a nice machine and a bit smaller even than the X1C, so it is still a hard choice and making me debate whether I'm willing to deal with the scaling issue or not.
