It’s Black Friday and everyone is out kick-starting their holiday shopping. I thought I would take a break from my own shopping to highlight some pretty slick Black Friday deals from Microsoft. We’ve got some pretty awesome deals going on for Windows Phones, Xboxes, Windows PCs and more – just check out this slideshow on Microsoft News Center for all the details.
You should also check out the Black Friday page at the Microsoft Store website.
Also: Major Nelson has put together a pretty cohesive Excel spreadsheet of Xbox-related gaming Black Friday deals (he’s embedded the spreadsheet into this blog using the Excel Web App – how cool is that?) – check it out there.
* Most of these deals are U.S. only and are happening Nov. 25th – 28th and going fast.
Speaking of PCs – we are highlighting some of the season’s hottest PCs also on Microsoft News Center. These PCs span a variety of different form factors – from thin-and-light ultra-portable PCs to All-in-One PCs. These PCs also come from many of our awesome OEM partners such as Sony, Dell, HP, Samsung, Toshiba, Lenovo, ASUS and Acer! You can check out the slideshow of these PCs here. With a variety of choice, you can pick the PC that fits your specific need (or someone else’s).
