There’s 10 days to go until Black Friday, but stores have been announcing their after-Thanksgiving sale prices since the start of the month, and some deals are even live already: Amazon is currently offering a 3-month Amazon Music subscription for just $1.

I’ve been keeping Liliputing’s Black Friday 2017 mobile tech deals page up to date, but now that Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, Microsoft, and others have provided a sneak peek at some of their deals, I figured it was time to highlight some of the best.

Some of the best deals are on media streamers and smart speakers, and companies compete to get a foothold in your living room.

I’m almost certainly going to be snagging a new Amazon Fire TV Stick or two for $25. The faster processor and upgraded WiFi should make them a nice replacement for the aging 2014 models in our house (I’m also contemplating adding a Roku device to the mix though).

And I already picked up an Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet when it was on sale for $50 earlier this year. It’ll be going for the same price on Black Friday. I’m very pleased with that purchase, especially since I figured out how to load the Google Play Store to run alongside the Amazon Appstore.

Having bought a new laptop last year, I’m trying to resist the urge to pick up a new laptop… at least until there a wider selection of options with 8th-gen Core chips or AMD Ryzen Mobile processors. But if you’re looking to upgrade from something a little older, there are also some pretty good prices on PCs, convertibles, and Chromebooks.

Here are some of the deals that stand out most for me:

Media streamers

Smart speakers

Laptops and convertibles



Unlocked smartphones

    1. This post is about Black Friday deals. Black Friday is November 24th. Some deals will start early, but that one has not gone live yet.

      1. Yeah, my mistake. I realized it after reading the article again…

  1. I’m interested in both of those Dell Inspirons. I think either of them would be great with an SSD swapped in.

    I’m curious how the Core M3 performs in the Dell package. Because the M3-7y30 in the 11″ model has very similar performance to the i3-7100u. The differences between the two would all come down to how well cooled the laptop is.

    I’m interested in the 11″ size, but I’d go for the 13″ if the M3 had any performance concerns.

  2. I need to get another Fire 8 myself. Got one on Prime Day this summer, and loved it… And sure enough, about three days after its sad little 90-day warranty period expired – I spilled contact solution all over it. And like an idiot, forgot to throw it into a rice bath until after I got back from work that day. Got it to power up for about five minutes, then it died a hard death.

    Ended up getting a Fire HD 6 from Woot to get by until Black Friday.
