    Its hit and miss on which day is better as each vendor will do different sales, though a lot of them will have the same sale prices.

    It really is a crap shoot as to which would be best. I would imagine there would be similar deals on both days. If you see something good on BF you should jump on it rather than wait and be SOL.

    there's an interesting trend at least where i live, the biggest online electronics store held its black friday a week sooner (which was yesterday) since a few good years now and this year the biggest offline electronics chain joined in the fun, it's a pretty smart move if you think about it a bit, because they don't have to compete with all the others who hold the black friday when it should be held and they also overtake the competition with helding it a week sooner, so when the real black friday comes, most people already bought their shit

    There will be the same deals on both days I would think. Act quick though because you know there is always a mad rush and everything gets sold out - even a lot of the online stores have queuing systems so it can be a nightmare trying to buy stuff.

    Also do your research and don't just jump on what looks like a deal without confirming that it actually is.

    Also please get an SSD in your laptop - it makes the world of difference. Check CPU at cpu benchmark as well because a lot of companies advertise laptops as i5/i7 which looks good on the face of it but in reality they are low end i5/i7 and are actually crap.

    I got my macbook pro 2013 with 256 SSD and it rocks! No need to buy a new laptop. I also upgraded the ram 2 months ago to 16gb and it feels like a new laptop.

    You wont know which is better because if they have success with sales on black friday they will raise the sale price on cyber monday and vice-versa.
