Cyber Monday is the Monday after Black Friday where huge sales happen most likely exclusively online…

Starting to run out of what i want to get electronic wise for Black Friday. I will say i do want to get a computer monitor with a HDMI input. Hopefully Best Buy or Walmart has something.


#6

From what I read on multiple Black Friday sites, Target is going to open at midnight and close at 11 pm this time so dont be surprised if Wal-Mart does the same. I guess the madness begins really early this year.


#7

It makes sense…stores are really trying to pull revenue during these tough times.


#8

I want to go out for the madness…but there are very few things I want/need…
I’m looking for powertools as always…
Steam cleaner…of quality…
Maybe some used games sells so I can pick up some family/couples titles for cheap…

Cool thing about that is I’ll be in Raleigh North Carolina during that time like last year, so best believe i’m hitting up Target/Walmart at Midnight.


#10

Blackest Month, Brightest Day?

Sounds about right, for America…

Personally, I cannot wait for our New 52 (50 + Virgin Islands and Rico) reboot to happen.


#11

2 for 1 at Target and Amazon. Gonna do Uncharted 3/Arkham City/ Third game. Probably Demons Souls, but part of me wants to cop BF3 just so I can play splitscreen with my dad


#12

Demon’s Souls is like $20 new, so get the most out of the deal and pick up BF3.


#13

If you’re looking for suggestions, I would suggest keeping an eye out for a VISIO TV. I’ve got a "40 that has not only HDMI inputs, but a regular jack for your computer monitor as well. Mine ran me about $600 regular, so I’m guessing the price will be even lower if you can snag them on sale. Perfomance-wise, it’s been rock solid for over a year and counting. I’m not the least bit dissapointed in mine and may even buy another one in the future…if this one ever breaks that is. :tup: Hope that helps.

Hm, this thread could be good.

Mang, this gen of Pannys has Alpha IPS panels, again.

A 42" ought to run you about the same, but with minimal input lag.

I have two C3s, and love them.

I use one for a PC monitor, as well.

It’s good enough to do digital art on, IMO.

Colors of course are going to be chosen on a high end PC monitor, but hey - once you’ve got that palette set up, seeing your broad strokes cut a swath across the big screen is incredibly satisfying.

I thought most HDTVs nowadays had a PC VGA input. They’re basically based on existing monitor designs anyways.

That said, be careful what you get. My dad’s off-brand HDTV does NOT play nice with my laptop, HDMI OR VGA.


#17

I actually meant the sequel, Dark Souls, as it’s also a new release

I’m also boycotting BF3 over the Origin stuff on PC, and trying to decide if buying a Console copy defeats that purpose enough. It still gives them a sale, only on a platform not of my choice. They won’t get the message if I do, but alas I’m sure my not buying it isn’t actually sending a message anyway, but it’s the principle of the thing damn it


#18

Then definitely get Dark Souls.


#19

in the market for laptops. one for my mom and one for me. can someone break down the different processors available now? i just need a decent laptop, nothing powerful


#20

Just make sure you get an i5, at least.

And an independent GPU.
