Given the ups and downs of 2020, Black Friday’s muted vibe comes as no surprise. While you can find good deals, they’re not nearly as plentiful or tantalizing as last year, due to demand and a flood of recent product launches. On average, expect to spend about 10 percent more compared to 2019.

Still, with some digging around, we’re unearthing solid discounts on items that we particularly care about at PCWorld: CPUs, GPUs, monitors, and more. Keep an eye on these lists, as we’ll expand them as sales ramp up between now and Black Friday.

To see everything else on sale right now, check out our round-up of the best early Black Friday 2020 deals.
