Black Friday deals: Get your geek on

Black Friday in the United States is probably one of the biggest holidays next to Christmas. Once a year millions of American's, and even Canadians, lineup outside of outlet stores for hours to get the best deals. Shoppers also hit the Internet to get major savings on electronics.

Amazon

Amazon is offering consumers a ton of deals through their website. The website is offering DVD's, Blu-Rays, clothing, video games, cameras, GPS units, and much more.

Wal-Mart link takes you to target...

I know, I tried to let them know... I reported it to them and left comment here and they ignored my report and deleted my comment. Not good. Oh well.

Well how is neowin supposed to make money off their Target referral link, if they link it to Wal-Mart?

Black Failday. Where's all the %60 off xbox deals I heard about? been looking all week, luck to get £5 off.

Apparently the xbox deal is coming around the 9pm mark. Wouldn't surprise me if it's only the 4gb slim one

The savings on Apple stuff are not "major" savings.
A 100 bucks off a $1700 computer is hardly anything.

It's pretty nice if you were already considering one though. I'm sure they'll get some boost from this. However, this is even better if you're considering a MacBook Air of course. With the cut for the 13" MBA, it got the same price as the 11" model!

The MS deal with the Dell Mini w/ purchase of Office Home and Student is probably the best deal I've seen so far.

The deals look pretty weak across the board

Most of the deals just look like a way to get rid of old stock to make room for new. Seems like the deals were stronger a few years ago than they are now. Hardly worth going out into the crowds anymore. But I'll still look for some online deals tomorrow.

apple always has some of the worst deals. Its really only worth buying if you do so online. Say I buy a $1,500 computer from them online it would be only $1,399 + shipping, and since its online probably no tax unless you live in a select few states. Now if I was going to go in the store and buy the same thing it would be $1,400 + tax (which is 7% in my state), and now it comes to $1,498. Not much of a deal.

I ordered 16 gigs worth of ddr 3 for my desktop $192 with the tax, normally it would of cost $280 before taxes and shipping

even though you got a deal it's sort of a waste of money if you ask me.

4GB is more than enough for most uses nowdays (i think anything over 4GB is not really worth it overall unless you get more for barely more $). 8GB i am sure would be well more than plenty (i dont see almost no one needing more than 8GB at the MAX) but 16GB is overkill.

probably would have been better off dumping that money into a bigger HDD or SSD type drive etc etc.

or am i missing something?

In my case, I do work in After Effects, which eats RAM like candy, especially once you apply high-res layers and particle effects. I can use as much RAM as I can get.

Normally when one person buys 16 gb of ram knows why it wants it....

Lol wut? 4gb is hardly anything unless your on a workstation doing word documents all day. 6gb should be the recommended amount.

I have 12GB on my home machine, purely for the fact that I run a bunch of virtual machines and would like to do things at the same time as that.

These days people shouldn't argue why your maxing out your RAM, it's not like it costs a lot of money. More RAM the better.

I have 8GIG of Ram and its not enough... more then once has windows 7 x64 spit ut the error "you have ran out of physical memory. please close some application and restart"

saddly my mainboard can only do 8 gig max

Im sure I could even max out 48GIG of ram easly... Sr-2 any one?

Your arrogance is outstanding. How do you know what this person does with their computer? Maybe they run VMware worstation and many VM's....which would suck the life out any RAM you give it.

+1

I just stood up 12 ESX servers with 48GB ram in each. We'll probably add more ram before long. For the average computer user 4GB is probably enough but for most of the folks here at Neowin we're far from average.
