3 deals I love in Dell’s big summer sale

It’s also a great time to save big on computing gear, especially thanks to Dell’s Summer Sale, which is happening right now. With prices dropping considerably for computer components, like graphics cards, storage media, and memory, those savings are bounced back to you. Some of the best Dell laptop deals are featured in this sale, including some really juicy gaming laptop deals.

It means now’s a good time to upgrade your system, whether it’s a desktop or laptop, so you can get a little extra power to do whatever it is you want to do, from gaming to 3D modeling and graphic design — staying on the bleeding edge is always a solid choice. Dell has a lot of excellent deals available, allowing you to save upwards of $750 depending on the system you choose. To make it a little easier, I’ve scoured the lot and picked out some of my favorites.

There’s a big sale happening on Lenovo Tower and Edge servers today
Lenovo ThinkSystem ST50 Tower Server product image

People often think of servers, the systems that empower online and cloud-based platforms, as more of a business solution. While that's true, and they do have widespread implications for the world of modern business (hello DNS servers), there are many uses for a server at home too. For example, you can set one up to run a media server, allowing you to access all of your media -- like movies, shows, and music -- both at home and on the go. You can also use a server to host and run your own website or even a full-fledged hosting solution, where you can sell hosting to other like-minded folks. Really, there are a ton of possibilities. Of course, servers tend to be expensive, but thanks to a huge sale on Lenovo Tower and Edge Servers, you can save big right now. In fact, some of the best desktop computer deals include an option worthy of moonlighting as a server from time to time. Regardless, if you're in the market for a server, now's the perfect opportunity to grab one for an excellent price. Why not take a look for yourself?

Why you should shop the Lenovo Tower and Edge Servers sale
