BLACK FRIDAY 2013: Tiger Direct

TigerDirect’s advantage for those in the market for a new computing device is the breadth of its sale offerings. However, most of its tablet specials are not of the out-of-this world variety. For instance, it is offering the Microsoft Surface RT 32GB with keyboard cover for $249.99, but so is Staples. Likewise, its prices for Samsung’s Galaxy tablets are the same as elsewhere, though, to be fair, that’s Samsung setting the pricing and not the retailers.

One true deal we’ve seen is the brand-new Dell Venue Pro 8 for $229.99. That’s a $70 discount on the 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet’s regular price, and $50 less than Staples’s discounted price. (For its part, Dell is selling the Venue Pro 8 at its original price but throwing in a free case and a year of accidental damage service.) Another interesting offer is a 13.3-inch Hannspree tablet for $199.99, if you’re looking for an Android slate with as large a screen as possible. Finally, TigerDirect is selling the Acer W510 Windows 8 tablet with 32GB of storage for $299.99. Note that the Surface and Venue deals are for the first five hours of Black Friday only (with stores opening at 5 a.m.).

TigerDirect has numerous laptop deals for everything from budget systems to pricey gaming notebooks. Starting at the low end, it has an 11.6-inch Asus with 2GB of RAM, 320GB hard drive, and touchscreen functionality for $249.99, along with a 15.6-inch Dell with 4 gigs of RAM, 500GB hard drive, and Intel Core i3 processor for $349.99.
