Cyber Monday Dell live blog: the best XPS 13, Alienware and Inspiron deals


Getting ready to reopen the office and want to update an administrative workstation or two? Dell has you covered.

Right now, you can grab this Dell Inspiron desktop and monitor combo right now for just $499, a $289 savings.

The desktop features an Intel Core i5-10400 processor with Intel UHD 630 graphics, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD for lightning fast data access speeds. The mini-tower chassis is also compact enough to comfortably fit on, under, next to, or inside a desk (assuming you have a PC cubby or something similar).

The Dell monitor is a 22-inch full HD (1080p) display running at 60Hz. No, it’s not the snappiest nor the most spacious monitor around, but it’s perfect for office work, which is kinda the point with this one.

Let’s talk budget gaming laptops – you know, gaming laptops for under $1,000 that have a bunch of twinkly lights, a menacing looking chassis, and a three year old GPU that can barely get 40 fps at 1080p.

The Dell G15 Ryzen edition is not that kind of budget gaming laptop, because it isn’t a budget gaming laptop at all. It’s a solid midrange machine, but right now the Dell G15 Ryzen Edition is just $999, a $519 savings.

When I say midrange performance, I’m talking about an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor, an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU, 16GB RAM, a 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD, and a 15.6-inch 1080p display running at 120Hz. These are impressive specs even for a midrange, so getting it for a budget gaming laptop price is a steal. 

Changing gears a bit, there are a couple of Dell monitor deals you should definitely check out. First, there’s this Dell 32-inch curved 4K monitor for $329 right now, a $270 discount. 

This is 4K VA panel, so it only maxes out at 60Hz refresh. This isn’t going to be the best gaming monitor Dell’s got unless your game is really, really pretty and you just want to look at it in 4K.

If you want a great Cyber Monday monitor deal on a high refresh gaming monitor with a quick response time, this Dell 27-inch QHD (1440p) gaming monitor is also just $329 right now, a $260 discount. 

This one maxes out at 144Hz in 1440p with an HDMI connection or at 165Hz in 1440p with a DisplayPort connector. It also has a 1ms response time, so this one would make a great eSports monitor.

We’ve got more XPS laptop deals coming through at Dell, this time with the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 over on Dell’s UK site for just £1,399

Powered by an 11th-gen Intel Core i7-1165G7 with 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, this 13.4-inch FHD+ (1920x1200p) convertible laptop with 16:10 screen ratio has ample real estate for note-taking, sketching, and more.

But the Battle of Bunker Hill was a thing, so we’ve also got an even better deal in the US, with the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 on sale for just $979. It’s slightly lower-specced than the UK version, but then again, so was the Continental Army. 

Featuring an 11th-gen Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD with the same FHD+ touchscreen display, the only difference here is the processor and the price, which in our opinion makes this one the much better deal right now.

The UK isn’t missing out with this new Alienware deal. This is for the newer Alienware m15 R6 which gets a hefty £450 price cut for Cyber Monday.

It features Intel’s latest 11th generation Intel Core i7 laptop processor, 16GB or RAM and 1TB SSD. It also has that all-important RTX 3080 laptop GPU, and a faster 360Hz screen with Nvidia G-Sync support. While the RAM is less than the US deal we just highlighted, to be honest, very rarely will you need 32GB of the stuff if you’re not a content creator, so gamers will be fine with 16GB.

Plus, this deal has a newer CPU and faster screen, which more than makes up for it.

Looking for a gaming laptop? Dell’s got you covered as well, with a range of brilliant laptops, including some from its premium Alienware brand.

Take this amazing deal, which is selling out fast. It’s the Alienware m15 R4 with a huge $810 saving, knocking the price from $2,809.99 to $1,999.99.

That’s a big saving on a stunning gaming laptop that comes with the RTX 3080 laptop GPU, currently the best gaming graphics card you can get in a laptop. This will allow you to play any PC game with all the graphical effects whacked up to max, and it makes full use of the super-fast 300Hz screen.

It also comes with a 10th generation 8-core Intel Core i7 CPU, 1TB SSD for storing all your games on, and huge 32GB RAM. In short: this is a very, very, very good gaming laptop, and for an excellent price.

While that Dell XPS 13 deal in the US is an absolute steal, there’s good news for UK readers as well, as Dell UK has a similar deal that also knocks a huge amount off the brilliant laptop, and it’s still in stock as well!

In the UK, Dell has cut the price of the Dell XPS 13 to just £721. It again comes with an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD, making it a brilliant laptop for day-to-day work. To get this discount, you need to use the code BF15 at the checkout. This deal is definitely not to be missed.

Welcome to our Dell Cyber Monday deals live blog. We’ve been keeping an eye on Dell’s websites in both the US and the UK throughout Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and as with previous years, the company has released some absolutely brilliant offers on its best products.

So, to kick things off, the best Dell deal we’ve seen so far, and which is somehow still live, is the Dell XPS 13 for just $649.99 (was $949.99) . That’s right, one of the BEST LAPTOPS IN THE WORLD is on sale for $650! You’ll be hard pushed to find a better laptop deal right now.

It comes with an 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB SSD inside. Sure, that’s not the most powerful set of specs in the world, and the SSD is a little on the small size, but for the price, this is a laptop that will blow away the competition. It’s amazing that this deal hasn’t sold out just yet.
