Black Friday may be a week out, but that's not to say there are no bargains to be had for those who can't wait. In today's SlashDeals round-up we've got a monster Dell desktop PC ideal for gaming and multimedia, a super-affordable laptop perfect for college, upgraders, or putting aside for a holiday gift, and even some smart home tech magic in the shape of wireless locks. That's not all, so head on past the jump to see all the deals.
If you're into gaming but not convinced by the new Xbox One or PS4, a potent PC might be the answer. Dell's XPS 8700 has an Intel Haswell Core i7 processor, NVIDIA's GeForce GT 635 with 1GB of memory, and even a 24-inch Full HD LCD monitor thrown in too, perfect for both gamers and multimedia editors.
Looking for some affordable mobile computing? Dell's Inspiron 15 laptop packs a Core i3 processor and a 15.6-inch display that's a great balance between portability and usability, making it perfect for kid's schoolwork, college students, and anybody hoping to get away from the tyranny of the desk.
If your home is due for a smart upgrade, there's nothing quite so cool as fitting your doors with remote controlled locks. Kwikset's Kevo 925 deadbolt hooks up via Bluetooth to your smartphone, allowing you to leave the keys in your pocket and even allow friends and family temporary access while you're not home. Want the neighbors to feed your dogs while you're on vacation, but don't want to cut a new key? This smart home deadbolt is the answer.
As Bluetooth headphones go, Parrot's slickly-styled Zik set is one of our favorites. Yes, they'd make an ideal holiday gift, with their touch-sensitive controls and awesome audio quality, but we're coveting them for ourselves really, especially with a big saving off the $400 original price.
