'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Update, Dec. 2: Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020 are now done and dusted. But if you would still like to find business tech deals or the best products to buy, check out our ZDNet Recommends directory.

Like its membership club rivals, Costco sells a bit of everything at its warehouses, including a collection of PCs that play a role in its annual Black Friday deals. But on Cyber Monday, you might have to go to Costco.com to secure some of the following discounts on systems.

This Inspiron deal will appeal to those looking for a traditional desktop tower at a midrange price. It comes with a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, and even a 256GB solid-state drive that can help boost start-up times.

If you need a portable productivity powerhouse, Microsoft's Surface Pro 7 tablet has you covered, especially with this deal. In addition to the robust hardware (Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, 12.3-inch touchscreen), the bundled Surface Pro Type Cover and Surface Pen turn this into a full-fledged laptop that weighs in under 2 pounds.

This Android tablet provides an ample 10.4-inch screen size, along with 64GB of built-in storage, and Samsung sweetens the deal by throwing in a 64GB microSD card for additional storage capacity.
