Microsoft discounts Dell XPS 13 by $314 to celebrate Pi Day

Black Friday is well behind us now, but there are still plenty of opportunities to bag a deal.

Microsoft has cut the price of the Dell XPS 13 laptop by $314 – a reduction of 31.4%.

That’s a significant saving on the usual $999 R.R.P, bringing the mark-up down to just $685.

The discount is in celebration of Pi Day, a curious annual event that’s marked on March 14 each year. Why? Because March 14 is 3.14 in US date formats, and Pi is 3.14 in, well, maths.

Unfortunately, this deal is a US-only offering, so UK buyers will have to sit this one out.
