The XPS line should at minimum come with QHD panels. You can find 1080p panels on $200 walmart laptops these days.

Your comment is complete nonsense. Stop focusing on the number of pixels and start focusing on the quality of the screen. FWIW, I find anything above 1080p to be useless on a laptop with a 13" screen.

If you read carefully their terms, the $279 in points shown below the price is the current 15%everything+5%Dell=20% cash back, and the $140 is another 10% in cash back if your total purchase is above $750 and you will get it after Jan 15. So 279+140 is just a breakdown of the 30% cash back into 20% and 10%.

For the $950 version, the breakdown of discounts is as follows
  • 1% standard cashback ($9.50)
  • 14% Rakuten promotional cashback ($133)
  • 5% Dell promotional cashback ($47.50)
  • 10% bonus for spending $750+ ($95.0)*
Total Discounts: ~$285

*You will not see this cashback on the product page, but it is stated here [rakuten.com]


I guess the only catch here are that
1) The 10% bonus cashback will expire within 45 days of receiving it
2) You are getting "cashback" in Rakuten points, so you would need to use it to buy something else. You will lose a bit of $ if you decide to liquidate to cash.

Could you elaborate? I have a bunch of points from a camera purchase in December ($180 now and an additional $120 coming in a week). Don't really need anything from Rakuten but I have to spend the $120 before end of February.
