Dell isn't holding back its Black Friday sales event, and though we're still waiting for the official day on November 26, we've already spotted some great deals on laptops. The powerful Dell G15 Ryzen Edition is currently $319 off the regular price, bringing the total down to just $950. That's one of the best deals we've seen so far even amongst all the best Dell Black Friday deals.
Dell's G-series of gaming laptops is generally more affordable than the Alienware alternative, but that doesn't mean you don't get some serious performance. In this configuration, AMD Ryzen 5000-series Mobile CPUs shine; the Ryzen 7 5800H is a true performer, able to handle modern games with ease. It's paired up with a NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti, a laptop GPU that's near the low end of performance but still perfectly capable of handling plenty of modern games at a smooth framerate.

The Alienware G15 Ryzen Edition includes a Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti GPU, 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, 8GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM, and a 15.6-inch FHD VA display with 120Hz refresh rate. If you'd like to get into gaming but don't fancy all-out power at a high price, this is a great option.
The 15.6-inch display has a 1920x1080 (FHD) resolution, perfect for the level of performance hardware inside.
