"It’s that time of year again, when notebook buyers across the country start plotting how they’re going to score a cheap notebook on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving that kicks off the holiday shopping season. We’re going to start tracking the deals on our Black Friday Notebooks page, but before you commit to neglecting your family on Thanksgiving or camping out your local notebook dealer’s parking lot I wanted to offer a few words of caution."
Black Friday is often the day to pick up great deals on technology and with the US economy the way it is, businesses better be on their A game this year. There is some good advice in this article that applies to more than just laptops. I've braved the Black Friday crowds before and find that they can either be highly entertaining or extremely frustrating depending on your own mindset and how desperate you are to get a deal. I was planning to go out this year for a new TV for the living room, but luckily I was in the store taking some measurements today and got to speaking with the manager who said that I could go ahead and buy it today at the normal price and just come in sometime on Friday for the price adjustment. Score!
