Dell has been in the computing hardware business a long time and has some of the best laptops in the market today. And even though most of the better configurations might cost you an arm and a leg, it’s possible to find them at a more affordable price point, if you know where to look.
Shopping for a Dell laptop, however, could get a tad overwhelming if you aren’t entirely sure of what you’re after, given there are three different ranges to choose from.
The Inspiron line has entry- to mid-grade laptops while Dell’s flagship-level power comes from the XPS range.
Then there’s Alienware, a Dell company dedicated to making gaming laptops. Each comes with dedicated graphics chips and a beefy processor to provide the grunt needed to run most games.
There are plenty of Dell laptop deals floating around the internet but, if you can be patient, you could score bigger discounts come Black Friday, with a possibility that all three lines of Dell machines will carry some alluring discounts.
If you’re uncertain as to which deal suits you best, TechRadar’s Australian team will do the hard work for you, finding the top Dell laptop deals and collecting them in a single page.
