The Best Black Friday Deals to Pick Up Right Now
For the early buyer, there are plenty of early deals to hold you over until the big shopping day.
Black Friday is 17 days away. This, however, is not stopping retailers from offering Black Friday deals early. With the race for holiday dollars now in full swing, many stores are angling to reel in early shoppers.
CNet has studied the Black Friday ads of stores like Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, Amazon, and Target to determine what are the best tech Black Friday deals currently available. These are current sales, so they may expire or stocks may run out.
For a full list of CNet’s suggestions, check out their list, updated throughout the pre-Black Friday season.

Best Buy: Lenovo Yoga C940: $1,499.99
If you’re the type of person who would rather browse on your phone because you don’t have to wait for it to wake up, Best Buy has a computer for you. The Lenovo Yoga C940 features Intel Project Athena, which allows for instant wakeup. With a quick-loading fingerprint reader, a battery with 10.5 hours of life and quick-responding Wi-Fi, this laptop is less a computer and more a smartphone with a 14-inch screen … in a good way.
Best Buy: 11-inch 64GB iPad Pro: $650

While it’s not the cheapest version of the Apple Watch Series 3 on the market, this version’s cellular capability makes the watch worth considering.

Battery life is not the greatest and the watch requires an iPhone to work, but the Apple Watch Series 3 is a great overall value for those looking for a fitness watch.
For those looking for a big-screen 4K HDR television, Walmart is offering the M-Series Quantum. With Google Cast and Apple AirPlay capability, the M-Series Quantum offers a high-picture quality. You save $50 off the regular price.

The pre–Black Friday sale offers only the light-blue Sport model at the discounted price.
For fans of classic arcade gaming, the Arcade1UP machines have been a revelation. Standing at three-quarters the size of the original, they cost a fraction of the price of MAME alternatives. The machines usually retails for $300, making this a steal. Walmart is also offering the Centipede Arcade1UP machine for $180.
