'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.

By launching its holiday shopping plans on Oct. 15, Dell set the pace for shopping deals this November. It's now down to a new round of deals for Cyber Monday, when hourly doorbusters are on offer from 8am to 10pm. Check out the updated list of Dell Cyber Monday sales below.

You'll have to wait until noon on Cyber Monday to grab the 15-inch version of the popular XPS laptop. It's an especially good deal if you don't mind the slightly older Core i5-9300H processor that's included.

This stylish desktop tower includes an Intel Core i5-10400 processor, 16GB of memory, and terabyte hard drive (monitor not included). It's also designed for future upgrades -- such as three PCIe slots and tool-less access to the chassis -- and features 10 USB ports so you'll never run out of a connection for your external peripheral. 

Corporate road warriors -- or work-from-home warriors -- can get a powerful business laptop for a great deal beginning at 4 p.m. on Cyber Monday. The well-stacked Vostro 15 5502 features a latest 11th-generation Core i7-1165G7 processor, 8GB of memory, 512GB SSD, Nvidia GeForce MX330 graphics and full HD display.

Buying for a business and need your workers at their desks rather than on the road? This workstation manages to squeeze a Core i5 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD into a tiny form factor.
