I'm tempted by the XB1/PS4 offers but I have a feeling that's just a conveniently timed permanent price drop so I'm not rushing any more than I was before to get them. I find it funny that the price is less than what a lot of people are asking for used ones though.

What I do need is a new internal HDD, so I'll be keeping an eye on NCIX.
same here. so tempted to pick up an xb1 from superstore with that no tax day this friday..i only want it to play forza 6 lol. i have a ps4 already so i dont really need to buy it but damn that price is nice.

Fido just put up their Black Friday sales on their website for phones. LG G4 down to $99 on a 2 year smart plan. Was $250 just a few weeks ago.

lol i bought a 360 years ago for the same reason
now its just sitting in my guest bedroom collecting dust and acting as a back up movie player...i probably should have sold it when it was still worth a pretty penny

but that price from ss is pretty tempting...i wonder if a slim version will come out and/or if it'll go even lower around boxing day.

Just picked up the LG G4. Kept my smart plan, they waived the upgrade fee, I used all my accumulated Fido dollars, ended up paying only $32 with taxes

Done my Black Friday shopping on a Wednesday!

Surface 3 for 499 vs ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP200SA-UHBF for 299

Just need something for emails/browsing/video. I'd have to spend some extra money to get the keyboard with the 3!

Buy Surface 3 - Microsoft Store Online

Buy ASUS Transformer Book Flip TP200SA-UHBF Signature Edition 2 in 1 PC - Microsoft Store Online

Surface CPU has 4 cores vs the Asus 2 cores. I would go with the surface. Especially since the processor on the Asus is really crappy.

Surface is fast and you wont have any problems. Plus warranty is great with Microsoft, they are similar to Apples warranty policies.

For what you need it will be more than enough, if you get the Asus you will be unhappy down the road as it will get slower and slower as technology progresses. Again you also want your emails, browsers and videos to open up somewhat fast.

I honestly never spend under $500 on a notebook. but the surface has really gotten my attention.

We actually had a defective Surface that started acting up 2 weeks after purchase. Brought it back to Microsoft store and they replaced it onsite. They didn't even bother diagnosing the problem. That to me is great customer service, in and out in less than 15mins.

The surface pro 3 type cover works on the non-pro 3 correct? I know it wouldn't be flush when folded over but the larger keyboard would be nice.

I could probably get a type cover on CL for cheap.

I will probably get the 3 thanks!

theshoppingchannel.com is going to have a Surface 3 bundle for their Showstopper on Friday (which starts 7pm Thursday night) not sure if it will be an actual deal, but whoever is looking at a Surface tab may want to check it out first

Anyone have experience with The Hockey Shop on black Friday, I see on their site it says black Friday, but it doesn't say what is on sale.

Not sure if they are having any Black Friday sales or not, but Sounds Good has always hooked it up when it comes to pricing. They do have a Boxing Day sale if you can wait.

Sounds good was also doing a moving sale. Not sure if they have moved yet. But they wanted to get rid of inventory so they didn't have to move it to the new location.

Heads up!!! Black Friday deals at The Hockey Shop are just 3 sleeps away!

We know your inbox has been flooded with various Black Friday sales...but who needs electronics and clothing when you can snag hockey gear at super deep discounts?

We'll be launching our Black Friday Sale a bit early so make sure to check out all the deals on Thursday at 2:00pm PST.

All of last year's discontinued and overstock inventory will be priced to move! Keep an eye out for our full email flyer on Thursday that will highlight all of our best deals.

Depends if he meant $100 each, or for all of it. I've got my spare 360's up for sale and it's killing me how little they seem to be worth now, I have a hard time justifying selling them for so little but I don't really have a reason to keep 6 working 360's and 6 broken ones for spare parts
