Black Friday has always been a great time to get exceptional deals on things that rarely go on sale. However, the famed yearly sales event takes place early in the morning (or even on Thanksgiving day!) Even if you show up early, you certainly won’t be alone. This is frustrating for many Black Friday shoppers, especially since every shopper must keep on their toes to ensure they get the deals they want.
Many Black Friday and Cyber Monday shoppers set their sights on a new computer when the season rolls around. Anyone can get a computer cheap, but a good system comes at a premium. While computers may be becoming more mobile than ever, a powerful workstation is still a need for those doing intensive tasks. Gamers often build their own computers, but they also may nab Cyber Monday desktop sales if the components in the build are a good value.
The official Dell store has awesome deals on a regular basis, but their upcoming Cyber Monday is slated to be one of their biggest sales. This time around, the computer manufacturer has released a 12-page pamphlet in advance of Cyber Monday (you can view the full list of deals here!). That alone should cue you into the fact that this is no ordinary computer Cyber Monday sale. Dell is marking down many computers during their laptop and desktop Cyber Monday sales, more than ever before.
