It wasn't that long ago that Dell dropped some superb laptop deals right into our – ahem – laps. But although Black Friday has been wrapped up and we're done with our Christmas shopping for another year, Dell's spirit of giving hasn't ended yet.
This Boxing Week, the PC maker is offering deep discounts on both consumer and gaming laptops, alongside Alienware gear, with prices dropped by up to 40% off. So if you missed out on a great laptop deal during Black Friday, this is the perfect opportunity for you to snag a brand-new Dell machine.
A quick word of note: most of these offers expire on January 2 but there are a few exceptions – so check if you're planning to wait before purchasing.
PCs, laptops & 2-in-1s
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) | i7 / 8GB / 256GB | AU$2,249 (was AU$2,999; save AU$750)
This is the 2019 edition of the XPS 13 convertible, meaning you're getting a powerful 10th-generation Core i7 processor under the hood. Moreover, the bezels are thinner, so you get more screen real estate from a 13-inch device, and the display is sharper. It's also very rare to get more than 15% off an XPS machine, so at 25% off, this is a steal!
Dell XPS 15 (7590) | i7 / 16GB / 512GB / GTX 1650 | AU$2,399 (was AU$3,199; save AU$800)
It’s rare to see anything more than a 15% discount on Dell’s lovely XPS laptops, so we feel all giddy when we're treated to a better bargain. This model has a 9th-generation Core i7 chip inside, and while the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 won’t support high-powered gaming, it’ll do just fine for the casual gamer or photo editor.
Dell Inspiron 15 5000 (5593) | i7 / 16GB / 256GB | AU$1,099 (was AU$1,899; save AU$800)
A huge 40% discount on an Inspiron machine with the latest 10th-generation Core i7 processor inside the shell. Match that with 16GB of system memory, and you’ve got a seamless multitasking laptop on your hands – good for those of us who like to keep a multitude of tabs open.
Dell Inspiron 15 3000 (3593) | i7 / 8GB / 1TB HDD | AU$799 (was AU$1,199; save AU$400)
A 10th-gen i7 laptop for under AU$1,000? Yep, this is a genuine deal. Dell has taken 30% off this model, and there’s a massive 1TB of storage onboard – so there’s plenty of space to keep your files, photos and videos – although this is a hard drive and not solid state storage. This would be a great buy for those looking to get their first laptop.
Dell Inspiron 24 5000 All-in-one | i5 / 8GB / 256GB | AU$1,039 (was AU$1,299; save AU$260)
If you prefer a desktop, here’s a discount on an all-in-one that released earlier this year. Because it’s fairly new, it hasn’t seen a large discount, but 20% off is nothing to scoff at. It’s slim and sleek, with thin bezels on a 24-inch monitor that make this machine look a little like a TV, so it should integrate into your home nicely.
Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-in-one | i5 / 8GB /256GB SSD + 1TB HDD | AU$1,549 (was AU$2,399; save AU$850)
Not everyone needs a laptop. For those who'd prefer a desktop for home or office use, this all-in-one comes with a 27-inch monitor. Inside is the latest i5 CPU and plenty of storage. Moreover, with 35% off the RRP, there's a decent amount to be saved on this machine.
Dell G7 17 gaming laptop | i7 / 8GB / 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD / RTX 2060 | AU$1,679 (was AU$2,399; save AU$720)
For the PC gamers, this Dell G7 17 gaming laptop is 30% off. It’s got a 9th-gen i7 chip inside, and a powerhouse Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. There’s plenty of storage for your gaming library, though it’s mostly in the hard drive. Thankfully the Dell G7 is easily serviceable, so you can always switch it out the HDD down the track if you need to.
Dell G3 15 | i5 / 8GB / 256GB / GTX 1050 | AU$899 (was AU$1,249; save AU$350)
A gaming laptop for just AU$900? Yes, it's possible. This is an entry-level option though, so will be fine for some casual gaming. For anything more you'll need a more powerful beast. This new deal matches last month's Black Friday price, so if you're keen on an entry-level gaming machine this is definitively as cheap as they come.
Alienware m15 | i7 / 16GB / 256GB SSD + 1.08TB SSHD / RTX 2070 | AU$2,799 (was AU$3,999; save AU$1,200)
Shaving 30% off this usual price of this gaming monster brings the price down to a much more enticing number. With powerful innards and a huge amount of storage for your gaming library, this 15-inch laptop is an absolute steal with a saving of AU$1,200. In fact, it's a better deal than the one we saw during Black Friday, so hurry and get your hands on this beast if you're a serious gamer.
Alienware m15 R2 | i7 / 16GB / 1TB SSD / RTX 2070 | AU$3,279 (was AU$4,099; save AU$820)
It's not the top-end specs you can get on some Alienware laptops but with a 9th-gen i7 CPU working alongside the latest RTX 2070 graphics card means you've got plenty to keep you on top of your game. Add a 20% discount direct from the manufacturer and you've got a good deal right here.
Alienware m17 R2 | i7 / 16GB / 512GB / RTX 2060 | AU$2,924 (was AU$3,899; save AU$975)
If you need a bigger 17-inch screen on your gaming laptop, this is a good option, although you will be sacrificing GPU grunt with an RTX 2060 in this configuration as compared to the m15 listed above. There's 25% off the RRP on this option but you will need to decide whether graphics is more important than screen size when deciding between the two.
Alienware Aurora Pro gaming desktop | i9 / 16GB / 512GB SSD + 2TB HDD / RTX 2080 | AU$4,124 (was AU$5,499; save AU$1,375)
This a powerhouse and even that word doesn't seem to do it justice. The combination of the 9th-gen i9 CPU and the Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU will tear through your games with ease! And with a staggering amount of storage available, this is a dream machine with 25% off the RRP.

Alienware AW2720HF 27-inch gaming monitor | AU$584 (was AU$899; save AU$315)
If you've got some extra change lying around to invest in gaming peripherals, and the additional space as well, then this 27-inch Alienware monitor has both AMD FreeSynch and Nvidia G-Sync support, along with a 35% discount.
