Two laptops under $200 included the HP AMD E-300 1.3GHz 16-inch LED-backlit laptop for $178 at Wal-Mart and the HP Pavilion Celeron 1.1GHz 14-inch Chromebook for $179.99 at Staples.
The Wal-Mart HP deal will be part of a special promotion Thursday night. The features include an AMD E-300 accelerated processor, 4GB memory, 500GB hard drive, SuperMulti DVD burner, 15.6-inch display, HD webcam and 3.75-hour battery life.
The HP Chromebook at Staples weighs less than 4 pounds and has an HP 14-inch screen. The Christian Post said the price is lowest price ever seen for a Chromebook.
Other hot laptop deals include ASUS Celeron 1.5GHz 12-inch touchscreen laptop for $249.99 at Best Buy and HP Pavilion TouchSmart Celeron 1.5GHz 14" touchscreen laptop for $278 at Wal-Mart.
When it comes to smartphones, Christian Today wrote that deal-hunting customers should look at Best Buy and Wal-Mart for the hottest bargains. Christian Today reported that Wal-Mart is planning to sell the iPhone 5C
for $45 and the iPhone 5S for $185, while giving away a $75 gift card for each sale.
Wal-Mart will sell Moto X handsets for $50 and will give out a $100 gift card, wrote Christian Today. During Black Friday, Best Buy is offering the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone for free; the HTC One for $30; and LG G2 for $25.
PC World wrote, though, that not all deals are created equal
, especially when it comes to tablets, calling many Android tablets "doorbuster bait."
"Don't fall for the low price tags," said PC World's Jared Newman. "These tablets are marred by low-resolution screens, weak battery life, and so little internal storage that you can hardly install any apps."
Newman suggested the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD at Best Buy for $99, for starters.
"This model comes equipped with last year’s hardware, but it carries 16GB of storage and is $70 cheaper than at Amazon," Newman said on his PC World blog. "Staples, meanwhile, will have the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire HD for $169, versus $229 at Amazon."
