Black Friday is here, bringing with it deals on some of the best laptops of 2019. Dell has been hard at work competing with other vendors to sell the most hardware, which means that prices on laptops are incredibly affordable. However, some sales are set to go live in a couple of days, so until then, we're rounding up the best Cyber Monday laptop deals you can get now and later on in the week.
As you shop, keep in mind that not every Dell Black Friday deal is a solid buy. For instance, the new XPS 15 was recently $999 ($100 off), but Dell was selling it for $912 back in September. On the other hand, using the code "SAVE12" brings most products in Dell's lineup down 12%, giving you an actual discount on the XPS 15.
Throughout the holiday season, we'll be hand-picking the best Dell Black Friday deals on everything from the Editor's Choice Dell XPS 13 ultraportable to the company's Alienware gaming rigs.
Dell XPS 13 Black Friday deals
Need an XPS refresher? We don't blame you. Dell's XPS line is a bit more complex than it appears. The XPS 13 (7390) is Dell's newest laptop. It sports a 10th-gen Intel CPU and unlike its predecessor — the XPS 13 (9380) — the base XPS 13 (7390) sports a 256GB SSD (instead of 128GB). Although keep in mind it's slowed down with just 4GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, the Editor's Choice XPS 13 (9380) is Dell's previous-gen laptop. It was released at the start of 2019 and sports Intel's Whiskey Lake chips along with a new webcam (that replaces the previous gen's "nosecam"). It's base config packs 8GB of RAM, but only 128GB SSD.
For the XPS 13 (7390) models, look for deals that take from $100 to $250 off. Any XPS 13 priced at $999 or less is generally a good deal. For the XPS 13 (9380) models, look for deals at or below $949. We've even spotted some deals that dip into the $899 range.
