Tips for buying a Dell laptop or PC on Black Friday

Last year, Dell had some pretty brilliant deals on its laptops and desktops during almost all of November in an attempt to get ahead of the competition.

While we've yet to hear anything from the horse's mouth, it would be wise to anticipate a similar approach from Dell for Black Friday 2022. 

But, before you begin shopping around, here are some of our top tips for buying a Dell laptop or desktop online.  By following our advice, you can make sure you get yourself a Dell deal that's right for your needs.

1. Know what you want before Black Friday

Before Black Friday, draft up a list of what you want from your Dell notebook, and any models or brands that have caught your fancy. This means your deal-hunting can be focused and more successful.

This will also help to keep you from blowing cash on impulse buys that you may regret later – especially if a deal for a product you actually do want crops up later, and you've already spent your budget.

2. What size do you need?

You should consider the overall size of the Dell laptop you’re buying. The most common sizes are 13-inch, 14-inch, and 16-inch laptops, with 17-inch models growing less and less popular these days.

Smaller laptops tend to not only be more portable but more affordable, too. Larger laptops, inversely, will offer a wider screen and, because there’s more space inside, you’re more likely to find more powerful processors and a larger battery. 

If you’re looking for something to take on the go frequently, you’ll want to opt for a more compact laptop which is light (less than 4 pounds, ideally less than 3 pounds).

3. Check the specs

Taking a long look at the configuration of the Dell laptop or PC before you buy can provide a clear idea of whether the deal is worth considering. If the specifications point to an old or low-power laptop, then the deal may not be as decent as you first thought.

On the other hand, if the specifications point towards a strong laptop that comes with features you'll seldom – if ever – use, then you may be better off saving your cash and searching elsewhere.

As far as performance is concerned, what is most important consider are the core parts inside the machine. That’s your processor, system memory (RAM), storage and – to a lesser extent – the graphics card. 

4. Keep the receipts

Make sure you maintain your receipts in case you're not pleased with any of your purchases and want a refund – it's also worth checking the refund policy of websites before buying on Black Friday. 

Some retailers will also offer longer warranties than others, which could be a deciding factor when purchasing a Dell laptop or PC on Black Friday or Cyber Monday.

5. Stick with TechRadar to get the best Dell Black Friday deals in 2022

On Black Friday or Cyber Monday, the day itself can be a bit overwhelming as so many online retailers vie for your hard-earned dollar. While this means there are very competitive deals to enjoy, it also unfortunately means there are some deals that aren't as decent as they first appear.

For the latest info, breaking deals and the biggest savings as soon as we know about them, make sure you follow TR Deals on Twitter so you don't miss out on any incredible Black Friday laptop deals.

When will the best Dell Black Friday deals start in 2022?

Black Friday 2022 starts on November 25, but as with previous years we expect prices to start tumbling well in advance.

Dell itself often starts its 'Early Bird' sales throughout the month of November, offering some truly tempting price cuts before Black Friday even begins. This year, Dell has launched its early Black Friday Sneak Peek event, which has already seen some massive price cuts in both the US and the UK.

In the week leading up to the big day, we often see Door Buster Deals in the US, and Mega Deals in the UK where even bigger discounts are applied, and these daily deals usually go on until Cyber Monday, which is on November 28.

These deals will often see hundreds of dollars or pounds being knocked off some truly excellent Dell products, but you'll need to be quick. They only last for the day and stock is often limited, so you don't want to miss these. The good news is that we'll be keeping this page updated, and will highlight any early Door Buster Deals and Mega Deals as they pop up. Bookmark this page, and you may get yourself an amazing Dell deal before Black Friday even starts!

Of course, Dell won't be the only retailer selling its products, with the likes of Amazon, Walmart, Currys and John Lewis all likely to offer some great Dell deals on Black Friday. Many of these retailers will begin cutting prices early as well (like they did last year), but we predict that Dell itself will once again offer the best early Black Friday deals before the day itself.

Where will the best Dell Black Friday deals be?

This is an easy one to answer, as on this very page, we'll list all of the best Dell Black Friday deals from retailers all around the internet. That means you don't have to jump from site to site trying to find the best deal – we'll put them right here and give you our expert opinion on why these deals are so good. Below, you'll also find links to retailers and their deals on Dell products. These are worth checking out regularly to find any great early offers.

Best Dell Black Friday deals predictions for 2022

We've been covering the best laptop deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday for long enough now that we can come up with some decent predictions for this year's event.

Big-name brands like Dell are likely to deliver price cuts to their range of laptops, both budget and high-end. Last year, Dell's XPS 13 and XPS 15 laptops saw generous price cuts, and we hope to see similar cuts this year. They are two of the best laptops money can buy, so if you find those two getting discounted on Black Friday, definitely consider buying them.

If last year's Black Friday is anything to go by, Dell will start offering big discounts before the day itself, so keep a close eye out for any 'early bird' offers. We'll post any that we find right here. There will likely be a coupon you can use, similar to the EARLYBIRD15 discount voucher used in the run-up to last year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

To prepare yourself for the inevitable Dell Black Friday deals, read on for our tips on securing the best offers.
