Dell has launched a massive 'Black Friday in July' sale this week - offering some of the best laptop deals we've seen all year from the official retailer.

Right now, you can get massive discounts across a range of Inspiron, gaming, and premium XPS laptops - the best of which I've rounded up below. Highlights include a superb cheap 15-inch model with a Ryzen 5 processor for just £299, as well as the first significant price cuts on the latest Dell XPS 13, 14, and flagship 16-inch models. 

As previously stated, these are likely to be some of the best laptop deals of the summer, even with the upcoming Amazon Prime Day event later this month. While Amazon does feature good options from various brands, we'd definitely highlight the official Dell Store as the primo option for bagging a decent Windows machine. While it doesn't stock other brands, it nearly always has the best prices on Dell laptops - and good deals on the latest models, too. 

If you're interested in other brands, then check out our Prime Day laptop deals page ahead of the big sale on the 16th and 17th of this month.
