Should you buy Black Friday computer deals now?

We’re getting into the full Black Friday computer deals season now, with only a week to go until the big day. However, should you wait for the official November 27 kick off date or grab an early offer now?

If you’re deciding whether to jump on a Black Friday computer deal already, we’d consider three things; the price, the retailer, and the brand. 

We’d usually expect to see a 4GB / 128GB configuration sitting at between $200 and $350 over Black Friday, barring any stunning flash sales. Meanwhile, an 8GB / 256GB spec is more likely to sit at between $350 and $450 over the holiday season. More powerful configurations offering i7 processors, 512GB or 1TB SSDs and additional GPUs do drop further in price over Black Friday computer deals, but generally don’t find themselves below $500. 

That all means that if you spot a nice set of specs at a price lower (or in the same region as) previous Black Friday computer deals, it’s well worth grabbing the early offer. 

Your chosen retailer may also sway your decision as to whether or not you buy now or wait for November. Best Buy has placed a price guarantee on some of its early Black Friday offers, which means you can confidently shop knowing that your computer won’t drop to a ridiculous price in a month’s time. Amazon, Walmart, Dell, and HP are a little trickier, but if you spot a price you like on the perfect desktop PC, there’s no guarantee it will be cheaper in November this time around. 

If you’re picking up an iMac or powerful desktop PC , you might want to think twice about jumping early. These are likely to get better offers as we get closer to November 27, and may even be reserved for flash sales over the weekend itself. 

Where to find Black Friday gaming PC deals

If you’re after a more RGB-friendly rig, you’ll find plenty of Black Friday gaming computer deals hitting the shelves right now as well. We’re rounding them all up on this page, but you can hunt down the specific spec you need by heading to retailers currently offering early Black Friday computer deals. 

In the US, we’d recommend checking out Dell, Best Buy, and HP first – as they’re all bringing their Black Friday offers forward this year. However, in the UK we’d head over to Amazon where you’ll likely find discounts on rigs as well as peripherals and games as well.
