Black Friday 2013 Laptop Deals to be Spectacular

IDC reported that world-wide PC sales dropped by 14% in Q1 compared to a year ago. The market has changed dramatically by tablets and phablets. These new devices are for more and more consumers an alternative to a laptop or desktop computer. Microsoft Windows 8 has failed to reignite the PC market. It is unlikely that the Windows Blue update will help. The only thing left for PC makers is to cut prices.

MarketWatch reports that there are already laptop deals today that match Black Friday deals. While there are sizable discounts on laptops available on Amazon and other retailers, I predict that there will be much better deals come Black Friday 2013. If PCs sales continue to be lack luster through the summer (and I see no reason why they should pick up) then retailers have to bet everything on the crucial holiday season.

While there is not much left to cut in the low-end laptop segment, I still see a lot of potential for exceptional Black Friday deals in the mid and high-end range. If you do not need a new computer now, I recommend waiting until November.

This year Black Friday is rather late falling on November 29th. In 2012, Black Friday was on November 23rd. Retailers will have four full weeks to please you with special Black Friday sales until the culmination of the actual Black Friday and the encore on Cyber Monday 2013 (December 2nd).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
