Tech heavyweights HP and Dell have entered the Labor Day sales ring, and they're throwing down some mighty tempting laptop sales while they're at it. You can currently save over $1,000 on certain models (yes, really), but these offers probably won't stick around for long. You can check them out below.

The highlight of these laptop sales for Labor Day would have to be the HP ZBook 15v G5. This 'mobile workstation' has prices starting at $805.20 (opens in new tab), a massive drop from the original, eye-watering $2,013 price tag. It's a machine built to last in a literal and metaphorical sense thanks to hardcore build-materials, 6-core Intel Xeon processors, and super-fast NVMe SSD internal storage.

Next up is the HP 15T, a very respectable laptop with a solid i5 processor, a 256 GB SSD, and a streamlined design that's going for $549.99 (opens in new tab) instead of $790. That makes it a great laptop for work or school use, and you can be guaranteed in its quality thanks to the HP make.

As for Dell, you can pick up the highly sought-after XPS 13 for $1,099 (opens in new tab) instead of $1,250 ($150 less than normal). Meanwhile, you can get an Inspiron 13 5000 with a 10th-gen i5 processor and 256GB NVMe SSD for $679.99 (opens in new tab), a saving of $100 in total. Pretty good for a reliable work laptop, that one.
