Black Friday, the day when consumers can generally expect to find some good deals, is thankfully just about upon us. With a few weeks before Thanksgiving here in the US, it seems now is about the right time for the deals to begin making their way into the public eye. Sadly, although Dell has plenty of deals listed for Black Friday, it seems that some are not as exciting as one would hope for.
To begin with, Dell is planning to offer the Inspiron Mini 9 for $299, which offers a $50 savings from the regular $349. The specs for that model include a 1.6GHz Atom processor, a 4GB SSD, 512MB RAM an 8.9-inch display and running Ubuntu 8.04.
Other notebooks that are on sale (and some that will offer a much greater savings) will be the Inspiron 13 for $699 (a $329 savings), the Studio 15 for $699 (a $245 savings), the Studio 17 for $799 (a $349 savings), the XPS M1330 for $1,029 (a $319 savings) and the XPS M1530 also for $1,029 (a $319 savings).
Other items listed include a nice deal on a Sharp 42-inch 1080p LCD, which is going to set you back $779 and showing a regular retail of $1,399. Additionally, Dell will also be offering an Xbox 360 Arcade bundle with seven games for $199.
One friendly word of advice when dealing with any Black Friday sales is to always shop around. Just because the item is on sale, it does not always mean you will be getting the best deal around. Take for example the Sony BDP-S350 Blu-ray player that Dell will have for $249, that same player will also be found at K-Mart for $179.99 on Thanksgiving Day.
