I need a new laptop, I am wondering if I should buy now or wait a couple of months and buy on black friday. the major deciding point is price. I have never shopped for electronics on black friday. I have shopped for clothes, and I quickly discovered black friday is just a scam and the clothes are priced exactly the same as any other day. have you ever shopped for laptops on black friday? are the prices lower? i am not talking about those deals where you have to sleep in front of the store the night before. lets say I casually walk into best buy or some other electronics store on black friday. could i get a good deal? and if you're going to suggest buying used on ebay, I am not interested. I have bought 4 used laptops on ebay and every time I have been burned. every time, there is something wrong with the laptop that the seller didn't mention. I am so done with used. I want new.
