XPS, Alienware, and Dell PC sales are currently on offer via some (very) early Black Friday shenanigans; you can save up to $430 via select discounts right now in their Black Friday sneak peek. Considering their quality and the esteem the brand is held in, it's a good opportunity to get yourself a work machine or one of the best gaming PCs for less.
- Black Friday sneak peek | Save up to $430 on gaming PCs
Although there are plenty of reductions on laptops and more, the Alienware and Dell PC deals are the highlight. There are five discounts currently available for these early Black Friday deals, ranging from more affordable machines to gaming monoliths crammed with horsepower. Because all of them offer a saving, you're getting a premium machine without the premium price tag.
Firstly, the new Alienware Aurora R11 with a 10th-gen i7 processor and a GTX 1660 SUPER GPU has dropped in cost by $100, bringing it down to $1,099. This will play most games at medium to high settings depending on their age, so being able to get it for just over $1K isn't bad going. It's a gorgeous device, too; older models like the Alienware Aurora R10 share the same design, and it's very handsome. As we mentioned in our Alienware Aurora R9 review, it's a "stylish foundation for the next generation of gaming."
You can also get an XPS Desktop - designed with content creation in mind - for discount as well. Namely, you can either pick up a model with a 10th-gen i7 CPU and an RTX 2060 SUPER for $1,249.99 (a reduction of $400) or a more powerful version with an RTX 2070 SUPER and K-Series i7 processor for $1,399.99 instead of $1,830. That's a saving of $430.
Want something a little cheaper? A Dell G5 gaming desktop with a more modest i5 processor and a GTX 1660 Ti graphics card can be snapped up for $749.99. That's a reduction of $150, and not a bad entry-point to PC gaming at large.
Finally, a more budget PC for general work is available as well. To begin with, you can get a cheaper XPS Desktop with an i5 processor and UHD Graphics 630 can be picked up for $649.99, saving you $200.
Remember, these models can be tinkered with if you want to upgrade the components at some point in the future.
We've listed each model's specs below.
