As Thanksgiving approaches, so do Black Friday deals -- starting with Dell's massive eight-page list of doorbusters.

We're still three weeks out from Black Friday, but the deals are already starting to roll in.

Dell on Tuesday sent us a massive eight-page breakdown of all the products discounted for the November 24 event, but if you're trying to get a head start on your holiday shopping this year, there's also a special 24-hour flash sale happening right now with 30% off select PCs, laptops and monitors.

For example, you can save $300 today on the new Alienware 15 gaming laptop, a 15-inch machine with a Core i7 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 chip, 16GB RAM and a dual 256GB PCIe solid-state drive + 1TB hard drive for $1,499.

Dell's Black Friday deals day is already underway and only lasts until 8 a.m. ET on November 2nd, so be sure to head over to take advantage of the discounts.

You'll have to wait until Black Friday (November 24-25) and Cyber Monday (November 28) to grab the company's "doorbuster" price cuts on big ticket items, but there's plenty to get excited about in the coming weeks.

Highlights include a pair of Sony wireless headphones for $78, an LG 43-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV for $300, and a 500GB Xbox One S Battlefield 1 bundle with Gears of War 4 and a wireless controller for just $250.

The hallmark of the offering is certainly the Dell Inspiron 11 3000 laptop, an everyday ultraportable hybrid with an 11.6-inch HD display for $100 on November 24. Sure, it's two years old with midrange components, but you won't find another PC with a 360-degree hinge for less. Plus it has a long battery life to boot -- it achieved an impressive 7 hours and 41 minutes in our video playback drain test.

The good news about the Black Friday sale is that you don't have to bundle up and wait outside in the cold to get what you need -- the deals will be available on Dell's Black Friday and Cyber Monday online storefronts on Thanksgiving Day.

The bad news? Well, that means you're up against a lot more competition, but you can get an early pass by signing up to be a member of Dell's Advantage Loyalty Rewards Program. It's free to join, and in addition to free expedited delivery on all purchases, you'll also gain access to the discounts earlier than everyone else, starting at 11 a.m. ET on November 16-18 and 21-23.
