Ads for Dell Small Business Black Friday, Cyber Monday leak

No attention-grabbing deals, but plenty of desktops and laptops on sale from a leading PC manufacturer.


Dell Business Black Friday and Cyber Monday ads have both leaked.

Hot off the heels of the Dell Home Black Friday ad being leaked, its small business arm has seen its ads leaked not only for Black Friday, but Cyber Monday to boot. There's nothing as eye-popping as the $100 laptop and desktop specials the consumer ad revealed, but there are still plenty of PC deals for those looking for solid performance systems.

The lowest-priced notebook in the four-page Black Friday ad is an Inspiron 15 3000 with Intel Celeron processor, 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, and a 15.6-inch display that's just $199 starting at 8 a.m. on Black Friday morning. For a little more ($329), you can grab a beefier configuration with an Intel Core i3 CPU, or move up to the Inspiron 15 5000 model with Core i5 chip and double memory and hard drive space for $499. If you'd prefer the more business-oriented Latitude instead, there's a 14-inch model available starting Monday the 21st from 11 a.m. for $429 that features a Core i3 processor with 4 gigs of RAM and 500GB hard drive, or a 15-inch version stocked with Core i5 CPU, 8GB of memory, and a terabyte hard drive for $499.

Desktop deals include an Inspiron tower (Core i5, 12GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive) doorbuster at 2 p.m. on Black Friday for $429, a $379 small-form-factor Inspiron with Core i3 CPU, 8 gigs of RAM, and 500GB hard drive, and a small-form-factor OptiPlex 3040 with Core i5 chip and the same amount of RAM and hard drive as its small Inspiron sibling for $579. If you need more performance, the XPS 8900 includes a Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, terabyte hard drive, and a GeForce GT 730 graphics card for $699, though that's just the $30 off the current price.

If you need an XPS 8900 with more memory, there's one with 16GB of RAM that is a $729 Cyber Monday doorbuster at 3 p.m. Other Cyber Monday desktop sales include an Inspiron Small Desktop for the same price as on Black Friday, though this one has half the RAM and twice the hard drive capacity. A trio of other systems cost $529: a similarly slim Precision Tower 3420 comes with a Core i3, 4 gigs of memory, and a 500GB hard drive, the OptiPlex 3040 includes Core i5, 4GB of RAM, and 500GB hard drive, and an Inspiron with Core i5, 8 gigs of memory, and a terabyte hard drive.

There are also a gaggle of Cyber Monday laptop sales. A 9 a.m. doorbuster is the midrange XPS 13 with Core i5, 8GB of RAM, 13.3-inch display, and 256GB solid-state drive for $949.99, followed by an 11 a.m. special on a Latitude 15 with Core i3 CPU, 4GB of memory, and 500 gigs of hard drive space for $429.
