Editor's Note: These deals have all expired. Check out our current list of best black friday deals.
Black Friday is the day when Americans go on the hunt for bargains at brick and mortar retailers around the country. While some people make a point of ignoring Black Friday shopping because the whole experience tends to be pretty traumatizing, a lot of people like to hold off simply because they're waiting for Cyber Monday.
A relatively new tradition when you consider how long we've been "celebrating" Black Friday, Cyber Monday falls on the Monday after Black Friday. Typically, everyone slouches into work after a long weekend, bummed out because they have to shake off the turkey-induced coma and get back to work. Taking advantage of the fact that there are thousands of people sitting at their desks and not exactly falling over themselves to fulfill their daily duties, many etailers organize Cyber Monday deals.
Obviously these deals are only available online and usually just for the duration of Monday. However some businesses (Best Buy for example) are milkin' it for all it's worth and have stretched Cyber Monday over an entire week.
So what's your poison, Black Friday or Cyber Monday? More importantly, what are you buying today? Let us know in the comments below!

11.6" ULV laptop
Indilinx or Intel based 2nd gen solid state drive
And if I don't find a truly great deal, these will have to wait a few months.
Having a list beforehand works best for me. This way I won't be tempted by a good deal on something I don't really need.
Even if I have a list, I just see things and think, "Why weren't YOU on my list? Come to me, beautiful piece of discounted electronics. Soon we will be happy together in your new home."
Very happy with this offers :D !!!
Actually, HP's dv8t looks pretty good to me. What's the reason for avoiding HP?
How about E-Tailers and Intel/AMD put real serious stuff on sale? i5/i7 or PII anyone? Seriously, in my opinion (based on my own wants/needs) the stuff on sale that I've seen so far is gimmick stuff.
On Black Friday I slept in.
So far today I bought a game online and will be browsing around a bit for other stuff later.
I know the feeling. However, you have the added perk of being able to think "this will be helpful whilst I work (pantless) from my couch".
