Dell has given us a sneak peek of its Black Friday deals, including some huge savings of up to 48% on Inspiron, XPS and Alienware devices. We've picked out a few of the highlights right here and there are a handful of fantastic laptop deals if you need an affordable all-around machine or high-performance ultrabook.

The best offer of the lot is this Dell Inspiron 16 for $649.99 (was $849.99). What makes this such a good laptop deal is the fact that it comes with 16GB of RAM included, which gives it a massive performance boost to power through any tasks. Other components are strong, too, including a speedy Intel i5 processor and a large 512GB SSD for loads of storage. Overall, it's an impressive all-around laptop.

If you're looking to spend a little less, then we can also recommend the Dell Inspiron 15 for $449.99 (was $599.99). As well as being a little smaller with a 15.6-inch display, it also comes with a less powerful AMD Ryzen 5 processor and half the amount of RAM at 8GB. That's a definite drop in performance, but if your needs are less demanding then this is still a more than capable laptop for everyday use at a great price.

Lastly, for those after the best build quality and top performance, there's also the Dell XPS 13 Plus for $1,349 (was $1,699). This laptop has a regular spot in TechRadar's best laptop guide, and this latest version is set to maintain that trend. It's a light and slick device, with some seriously powerful components inside including an Intel i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. Battery life impresses, too, so it's a fantastic buy if you need an advanced workstation for all jobs, including creative tasks such as photo and video editing.
