Still looking for a good deal on a new computer after Black Friday? Well, tomorrow is Cyber Monday, the internet’s version of Black Friday just without all of this. Like with Black Friday, most major stores– Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, TigerDirect, Target, Staples etc.– will be having big online deals. Unlike Black Friday though a lot of these deals haven’t been announced in advance (Amazon for example won’t start unveiling their deals until midnight EST). Best Buy however has some of their deals up, including what already looks to be one of the best deals we’ll see: an $800 14 inch HP Envy ultrabook for $550.
This HP Envy 14 has pretty much everything you would want in a good Windows 8 laptop: an Intel Core i3 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 500 GB hard drive, two USB 3.0 ports (with one more USB 2.0 port. USB 3.0 means things like backing up your computer to an external hard drive or copying over pictures and videos will go much faster. All USB 3 ports will also work with all older USB cables and devices), and a battery HP says will get you around 7 hours. This also has a 14 inch HD touchscreen so you can get the most out of Windows 8 (though you can’t disconnect it or bend it all the way back to use it like a tablet). Basically, this should be more than fine for doing things like going online, watching videos, writing papers, or using apps.
We’ll keep our eyes out for more good Cyber Monday deals. In the meantime, you can check out this Best Buy deal here.

If you’re looking for a new iPad, iPod or MacBook this holiday season you’re gonna want to listen up, as Apple just revealed their Black Friday deals. As expected there aren’t any major “doorbuster” deals to be found here, but there still are some solid discounts.
The iPad 4 has been given a $41 discount and now starts at $458 for the 16 GB WiFi model (with $51 and $61 discounts for the 32 GB and 64 GB WiFi only versions). The iPad 2 16 GB WiFi model got a $31 discount to $368, though if you want one of these we’d still recommend going with Walmart or Target’s deals instead. The new 5th generation iPod Touch (the one with the color back and 4 inch screen) has also been given a $31 discount and now starts at $268 for the 32 GB version. The older iPod Touch and new iPod Nano were each given their own small discounts, bringing their prices to $178 and $111 respectively.
The MacBook line is where the big discounts happen. Apple has taken $101 off of each of their MacBook lines– the MacBook Air, Pro and Pro with Retina Display. Of course this brings them to the same prices you could get the rest of the year if you use a student discount, with the exception being the base 11 inch MacBook Air which is now $898 (it’s usually $950 with a student discount).
Apple also dropped the prices on their iPad Smart Covers and Smart Cases, as well as for their headphones , routers and wireless mice and keyboards. And no, unfortunately there doesn’t look to be any deals for the iPad Mini or iPhone 5.
You can check out the full list over at Apple’s site here.
With Thanksgiving winding to a close, it’s time for the next big holiday, Black Friday. Whether or not you camp out tonight there are a lot of great deals to be had at a whole bunch of stores. We’ve got a few of the tech best deals we could find listed below.
While Black Friday is technically still a week away, a lot of companies have decided to start offering some great deals well before then. Several stores such as Staples and Amazon will be having deals all of next week (not just on Friday), and Walmart plans to open their stores at 8 PM on Thursday night instead of 4 AM on Friday. If you’re on T-Mobile well, your big deals are today. Today and tomorrow, November 16th and 17th, T-Mobile will be offering most 4G Samsung phones for free on a new two year contract. So if you are on T-Mobile and really want the Galaxy S III to be your next phone, now looks like the time to buy. The Galaxy Note 2 and 32 GB Galaxy S III are the main exceptions to this deal, but both look to have gotten some big discounts instead (the Note 2 for example is now $200 with a new 2 year contract as opposed to its usual $370).
We’ll have more great Black Friday deals next week. For more info on this deal check out T-Mobile’s site here.
