The Microsoft Store had actually great Black Friday deals in the past years. On SlickDeals a scan of the Microsoft Store Black Friday 2012 Ad leaked and it has only a couple deals. The Acer Aspire V5 laptop with Core i5 CPU is selling for $399 (reg. $599). No detailed specs available on this laptop yet. The advertised Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Holiday Bundle for $199 is also advertised in several other Black Friday ads.
On the last page Microsoft features Surface Tablet deals, but the deals disappoint. The first 100 Surface Tablet sold on Black Friday get a free Surface sleeve (value $49.99). In addition if you buy a Surface bundle you get $50 off a second Surface Touch Cover to Type Cover of your choice. Who needs a second cover?
The Microsoft Surface tablet seems to be in sold supply again. The Microsoft Store does not report any shipping delays. Microsoft could have been a bit more aggressive here and offer a discount on the Surface Tablet for Black Friday.
There is still some hope that the online Microsoft Store has some better deals on Black Friday. We will monitor the situation and report about the Microsoft Store Black Friday deals as soon as they are available.
