We’re staring down Labor Day weekend, and along with summer’s last gasp, an annual dilemma returns: Should you squeeze in one final camping trip or BBQ blowout, or hit the streets to land some of those sweet, sweet Labor Day weekend sales? There’s no need to compromise this year—or even leave your house. Newegg and Dell each launched Labor Day sales online and they’re already brimming with juicy deals on laptops, PC components and peripherals, TVs, monitors, you name it.

While Newegg’s Labor Day Sale offers all sorts of gear, this sale’s stocked particularly well in PC components and peripherals, though a lot of it isn’t discounted very deeply. Some quick highlights:

As you might expect, Dell’s Labor Day Sale a great place to pick up laptops and desktops for cheap. A $50 discount brings the GeForce GTX 1050-equipped Dell G3 15 down to $750, a great price for a budget gaming laptop. A loaded configuration of the XPS 13, our favorite thin-and-light notebook, is down to $1,300 after applying a $250 discount. And you’ll find desktops loaded with Intel Core processors going for as little as $350—an absolute value if you only need a basic system.

On the other side of the price spectrum, you’ll find the monstrous Core i9 version of the Alienware 17 on sale for $2,800. We reviewed this very laptop just two months back and the performance completely blew us away, easily earning a 4 out of 5 star rating even at its full $3,810 price. Now it’s $1,000 less? Yes, please.

But there’s a lot more where that came from. The Labor Day sales from Dell and Newegg each include a wide range of electronics, and not just PC gear. You’ll find deals on wearables, automated cookers, game consoles, portable audio, and more if you dig around enough, so hit those links and get scrounging.
