There Are Great Black Friday Deals For Technology Geeks

There are too many Black Friday deals to mention this year, but this week should be a geek’s dream come true. Here are just some of the deals going on.

Samsung 4K Ultra-HD Television 60″ (Smart TV)

Right now, this 4K television set is listed for $1199 at Best Buy's website. However, BGR and other sites show a Best Buy Black Friday flyer with the same exact television set for -- get this -- $799! If you have ever seen this 4K set in person, the price seems too good to be true. The colors on it are so accurate that it's quite scary. Samsung still makes the best television screens in the business, 4K or not. Even if you have to postpone your car payment for a couple weeks, this television set is worth every single penny.

Amazon Fire TV (Updated 4K Streaming Version)

The Amazon Fire TV does something that the new Apple TV forgot to do -- stream 4K videos, which are becoming a lot more popular. Staples is going to be selling Amazon's latest device for $79.99 (the regular price is $99.99) on Black Friday. They haven't advertised it on their site yet, but various early release Black Friday flyers show the price tag. Pocket Lint has given the Amazon Fire TV four-and-a-half stars while complimenting the device for it's fast menu operation and the fact that it has a better catalog of movies than any other device if you have an Amazon Prime subscription.

Apple Watch

The Apple Watch may not be the big hit that Apple wanted, but plenty of its buyers love it. Best Buy is going to offer the Apple Watch for $100 off the regular price (Sport or Stainless Steel versions) and Target will be giving a $100 gift card with the purchase of the Watch on Friday. It's not a good idea to wait until the next version of the Apple Watch, which isn't expected to arrive until next June.

Surface Pro 3 (128GB, Intel Core i3 version)

Yeah, we know the Surface Pro 4 is now available. But those who aren't looking to spend close to $1000 or more for a "tablet that can replace your laptop" may want to look at the Surface Pro 3, which Microsoft will be selling for $699 this Black Friday. With 128GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i3 processor, you should be able to do most laptop computing tasks. You can also enjoy the new and improved Type Cover that has been released for the Surface Pro 4. You'll have to spend $130 extra, but it will be worth every penny.

Nintendo Wii U

Fry's Electronics will be offering the Wii U with Splatoon and Super Smash Bros. for $249.99. If that's not enough, you'll also get a $20 gift card. Beware: The Wii U is completely addicting and can sucker those in who aren't normally into playing video games.
