Whether you're looking for a desktop, laptop, or monitor, Dell has site-wide Labor Day deals that offer discounted prices on a broad range of products.
Budget gamers will want to check out the Dell G5 15, which is selling for $799.99 ($150 off). It features a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS LCD, 2.3GHz Core i5-8300H quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, 1TB HDD with 128GB SSD, and a GTX 1050 Ti graphics card.
Dell's top of the line XPS laptops are also on sale. Multiple configurations are $100 off and you can use coupon "50OFF699" to take an extra $50 off. For instance, after coupon you can get the XPS 13 9370 for $1,049.99. This configuration packs a 1.6GHz Core i5-8250U quad-core CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.
If you already have a desktop and want to upgrade your dated monitor, you can get the Dell UltraSharp 27 InfinityEdge Monitor for $379.99. That's $220 off its regular price.
Dell also has multiple TVs on sale. For instance, you can get the LG 49-inch 4K Smart TV with a $100 GC for $399 or the Vizio 70-inch 4K Display with a $300 GC for $1,099.99. The display doesn't have a built-in TV tuner, so you'll need a cable/satellite box to receive programming (or a TV tuner with an antenna). Alternatively, you can cut the cord and rely on Chromecast — which is built into the TV — to stream programming.
