That Sony Bravia looks sweet but i would have to get more details, i would love to pick one up tho! Might have to settle for a 32" one or something.

This bluray is very good :

Sony Blu-ray Disc Player, Model BDP-S360 – $118

Bargain! If only the prices were like this in the UK.

sure is a nice price i really begin to wonder how New Zealand retailers can get away with charding $599.95nzd for it if it's that cheap in the US

Not only the horror stories but every news outlet in the US will treat black friday as if it is the first time it's ever happened and clips of the tired over turkied masses at midnight door busters will play relentlessly from 12:01am until the following monday all trying to get the first verified numbers of how this retail season compares to the previous...blah blah blah
Makes you wonder how many IT staffers at banks and credit card companies are going to be anxiously waiting for the spike in traffic :-P

people go absolute ape **** on black friday. you can find just as good deals year round if you keep your eye out.

Received a 205W for my birthday last year. I believe my dad snagged it from Target when they had it discounted for $100. I see no reason why you'd stand outside w/o a shower when you can sit at your computer and get the same deals.

I want GTA4 for $10, but I'll be damned if i'm anywhere near a wal-mart on black friday cause I enjoy my continued breathing. I just hope some online presence matches that price.

Someone should make a horror movie based on real life experiences of shopping at Walmart on Black Friday. Hopefully no one will be trampled to death this year...unreal levels of self serving greed right there.

edit: nice deals though

Let your fingers do the walking through the internet. . .no better way to shop, albeit you like to be run over by herds of ugly shoppers.

I was being dead serious, no sarcasm. There was a HP laptop mentioned in the story above, so why not the Emachine. And as for brand name, it's a laptop, not a netbook, for $198... That's BF price hot and at that price, brand name is pretty much not relevant. Best Buy is also going to have a cheap laptop for like $197, it's not a Emachine, if the brand name is of any issue to you...
