This Friday is “Black Friday” – the biggest shopping day of the year. This is when people begin their holiday shopping. Retailers offer deep sale prices on lots of stuff including Windows PCs and tablets. I thought I would do a quick round-up of some of the best Black Friday deals as you might be looking at picking up a new device for someone in your family (or yourself – that’s cool too). If you find a really awesome deal on a Windows device that’s not covered here – feel free to leave a comment to let others who are reading this post know!
Here are some deals on tablets, which would make great stocking stuffers this year:
As I blogged about earlier this month, E FUN’s 8-inch Nextbook will be on sale in Walmart retail stores for just $99 on Black Friday.
The 13-inch Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 will be on sale for $599 (you save $100) at Lenovo.com. This brand new tablet was just announced last month and you can read my blog post about the YOGA Tablet 2 here.
If you think a convertible PC might be a better fit, here is a deal on a 2-in-1 to check out:
The 15.6-inch Toshiba Radius 2-in-1 will be available at Best Buy for $699 (regular price is $899) starting Nov. 27th through Nov. 29th. The Toshiba Radius 2-in-1 comes with a touch screen and has a brushed-aluminum finish in satin gold. It comes powered by a 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor too so it has quite a bit of power and quite a bit of storage with a 1TB hard drive.
