Staples is joining the ever-increasing crowd of retailers infringing on Thanksgiving this year. For those willing to brave the store after a holiday meal, the retailer has some appealing deals on the Amazon Echo Dot and Google Chromecast, along with discounts on the usual slate of of mid-range Windows PCs and printers that the company is known for.
Unlike last year, the company is opening its physical retail locations to customers for Black Friday sales at 6pm on Thursday, November 24th, with deals also available all-day Thursday as well for those who prefer to do their shopping online.
Here are the highlights of what Staples is offering on Black Friday:
- Microsoft Surface Pro 4 (Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD) for $799.99(usually $999.00)
- HP Pavilion 15 (Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB RAM, 1TB HDD) for $499 (usually $779.99)
- HP Pavilion 14 (Intel Core i5 Processor, 12 GB RAM, 1 TB for $389.99 (usually $639.99)
- Lenovo Flex 4 (Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $499.99 (usually $749.99)
- Kindle Paperwhite (2016) for $99.99 (usually $119.99)
- Amazon Fire HD 8 (8GB) for $79.99 (usually $129.99)

- Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 for $99.99 (usually $149.99)

- Logitech K480 Wireless Bluetooth keyboard for $19.99 (usually $49.99)
- Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB external hard drive for $69.99 (usually $89.99)
Looking at all these deals the best for your dollar, and the one that will go the fastest, is the HP Pavilion for $499. The main draw back of that will be the slow hard drive. But if it can be replaced, put in a 256GB (yes it's lower in storage) SSD and it will great for lots of people.
Other honorable mentions would be an Echo Dot (link to my review) and the Seagate external to help you back up all those family and friends photos.
