Don’t miss out on all of NerdWallet’s highly anticipated 2016 Black Friday ad leaks this season. Visit regularly for tips and announcements about the best holiday deals from your favorite retailers. Black Friday is Nov. 25.

Along with gaming systems and tablets, laptops are typically one of the best things to buy in November — especially during the annual Black Friday markdown period.

Dell deals are among those prized laptop prospects that shoppers tend to covet when they’re scoping out holiday savings. We’ve rounded up some of the best bargains below.

If your generous gift list includes laptops or computers, make sure to mind your credit card balance. In the 2015 holiday season, 44% of Americans incurred debt and took about two months to pay it off. If you’re part of this crowd, make sure to avoid paying interest with the right credit card. NerdWallet’s list of best credit cards for holiday shopping includes cards with 0% interest periods that may last from 9 to 21 months. There are plenty of reasons to stress over the holidays; don’t let credit card interest be one of them.

Dell’s 2016 eight-page Black Friday ad has arrived, and like last year, there are some fantastic deals on laptops.

Here are some of this year’s best Dell laptop deals:

6 p.m. on Thanksgiving:

Dell Black Friday Laptop Computer Deals 2015

Last year, Dell promised “the lowest prices ever” on its Black Friday doorbusters, and judging from the markdowns we saw, they delivered. They offered deals on everything from cables to HDTVs, but some of the best bargains were on laptops, including a dedicated gaming laptop for the geek in your life.

Last year’s price slashing began at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving, with the offerings staggered throughout the sale and free shipping on all online purchases. Here’s a look at some of Dell’s best laptop deals from last year:

  • $149.99 for the Dell Inspiron 14 3000 Series Intel 2-in-1 laptop ($299.99 market value).
  • $300 off the Alienware 15 gaming laptop, marked down to $1,199.99.
