Black Friday, the day when consumers can generally expect to find some good deals, is thankfully just about upon us. With a few weeks before Thanksgiving here in the US, it seems now is about the right time for the deals to begin making their way into the public eye. Sadly, although Dell has plenty of deals listed for Black Friday, it seems that some are not as exciting as one would hope for.
To begin with, Dell is planning to offer the Inspiron Mini 9 for $299, which offers a $50 savings from the regular $349. The specs for that model include a 1.6GHz Atom processor, a 4GB SSD, 512MB RAM an 8.9-inch display and running Ubuntu 8.04.
Other notebooks that are on sale (and some that will offer a much greater savings) will be the Inspiron 13 for $699 (a $329 savings), the Studio 15 for $699 (a $245 savings), the Studio 17 for $799 (a $349 savings), the XPS M1330 for $1,029 (a $319 savings) and the XPS M1530 also for $1,029 (a $319 savings).

As many companies generally lower their prices on their goods in time for the holiday season, iriver has already got a head start on this as they have reduced prices on three of their hottest players. Thanks to a tip, we know that the three players are the iriver SPINN, the Lplayer, and the E100. All of these deals will start on November 1st and end on December 31st, more than enough time to complete all of your holiday shopping.
Let’s first begin with iriver’s SPINN. In case you don’t remember the exact specs here is a recap. First off, it comes with a 3.3-inch AMOLED touch screen, FM tuner, audio and video playback, picture display, and Bluetooth connectivity. One of the unique featuers about the SPINN is the way you navigate through the device – using the spindle tool on the side of the device. Previously, the 4GB version sold for $250 and the 8GB for $290. However, under iriver’s new deal, you can get the 4GB for $189.99 and the 8GB player for $229.99.
