Online retailer Newegg has beaten the Black Friday 2014 rush by revealing deals on brand name laptops, desktops, tablets and other products geared toward both hardcore gamers and everyday tech users.
Newegg says the deals will roll out between now and Black Friday, which has really stretched into nearly a month-long affair with the likes of Walmart, Best Buy and others sneak-peaking deals on everything from iPhone 6 smartphones to Xbox game bundles.
Among Newegg's bargains:
*$50 off a $250 Asus 13.3-inch Chromebook with Intel Celeron N2830 (2.16GHz) processor, 2GB of DDR3 memor and 16GB SSD.
*Dell i3647-1846BLK Desktop PC with a Celeron G1840 (2.80GHz) processor, 4GB DDR3, 500GB hard drive. Priced at $300, down from $370.
*iView SupraPad i700-8G touchscreen tablet with an Intel Atom processor and Android 4.4 (KitKat) for $50 ($40 off the usual price).
*CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme H710 Desktop PC with an Intel Core i7 4790K (4.0GHz) processor, 8GB DDR3 and 2TB of storage, running Windows 8.1 64-bit. The price has been slashed from $1,100 to $800.
Dealwatcher DataScience says that retailers such as Newegg have come out aggressively this shopping season with sales that challenge bigger outfits.
"We've seen discount deal sites pop with strength this past year," said Cory O'Daniel, co-founder and CTO of DealScience.com, in a statement. "They are consistently offering deals that outperform Amazon's pricing and in many cases, are releasing more than 80 new deals daily. Now is the time of year for consumers to be prepared before they purchase and learn how to shop smarter all year round."
