How to get the best Black Friday desktop computer deals
Announcement events for newly updated products typically happen right before the holiday season, so people know what new versions they can purchase. The Apple Unleashed event came and we were given updates on the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. The Mac Mini and 2021 MacBook Pro were also announced.
We can almost guarantee is that you’ll see a discount on some previous models, including the iMac 2021 (potentially). You’re probably going to see the iMac 2020 drop in price, allowing people to snatch those up. We’ve seen that Dell has begun announcing its Black Friday sale. You’ll be able to get the Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R10 Gaming Desktop for $360 off. HP showed its holiday gift guide selection as well. The HP All-in-One 24-df0130m PC is down to only $549.99.
Cyber Monday vs. Black Friday
Last year, there was a bigger push for buying more of your holiday gifts online, thanks to the pandemic. That trend of shopping earlier will likely continue. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be terrific deals on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. You’re probably going to find that you’ll be able to get ready for Black Friday deals further in advance, thanks to announcements. But if they happen to sell out, Cyber Monday will be there with equally as good of deals.
Places like HP and Dell always have huge Cyber Monday deals. But you’re just as likely to find great options at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and Amazon on both November 26th and 29th. Black Friday options will come out prior to the Cyber Monday ones, but Cyber Monday should come out closer to the date. Also, Lenovo is currently hosting Dealbusters deals with more to come in the upcoming weeks.
Black Friday desktop computer deals for accessories
As well as desktop computers, you’ll also be able to find great savings on accessories. It’s never a bad idea to have an extra mouse, keyboard, external hard drive, flash drives, and more. Cases for these items too will also be marked down. Monitors are a big option too. Keep an eye on Logitech, Razer, and more for possible big deals in keyboards, especially mechanical ones. If you’re a gamer, this is also an important need. For other options, the outlets we mentioned above are all great choices. Both of those companies are already listing holiday gift guides.
Right now, Amazon has a ton of options. There’s a big sale on Samsung SSD storage. There are also WD external SSDs as well. There is 6% off Google Wifi mesh routers. These are also just a few of the options in Amazon’s early Black Friday deals.
Desktop computer deals from last Black Friday
Some of the big-name manufacturers had huge sales last year, and we expect the same. You’re going to be able to get a Dell for less. An Acer for your family is for sure in play. Last year, you were able to get an entire line of Dell desktops for less, including the Vostro 3000, Inspiron 3880, XPS 8940, and more. Apple had the Mac Mini Desktop on sale for $50 off. Alienware had some nice discounts on Aurora R10 AMD Ryzen 7 Desktop. The options will be out there again this year.
