November is just about winding up, which means that many will be hitting the malls and retail stores for Black Friday (or in many cases, Black Thursday aka Thanksgiving). One of the popular gifts for the holidays will be a Microsoft Windows laptop or tablet for yourself or others on your holiday Christmas list. Fortunately, there are many brands of Windows laptops and tablets that will be on sale during the Black Friday season, and this is what is available from known brands like Asus, Dell, Lenovo, HP, Acer, and RCA at Wal-Mart and Best Buy.
Before deciding which Windows laptop or tablet to buy, you should probably do some research on the actual product itself. As we have written about before, a lot of retails love just to mark something down and call it a "Black Friday" deal, even though the product could be the same price on the manufacturer's website. Of course, the push is to put you in the store, but if you want to avoid the crowds, that is the way to go.
That being said, here is what is available, according to the Black Friday ads of Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and Target.
Best Buy has their ad prominently displayed with Black Friday Doorbusters with doors opening on Thanksgiving Thursday at 5 PM, then closes at Friday 1 AM, and then re-opens at 8 AM.
