Microsoft Black Friday deals are already here, people. They start today, as we approach the shopping season, and the company is offering a whole bunch of savings on both hardware and software.
Although the offers are listed here, most will go live at later dates.
You can however treat yourself to the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition tablet for $99, which is very much the price Amazon lists it at too. This is the only product that is discounted by Microsoft right now, all other offers either start on the 24th or 27th.
Then again, Black Friday is no longer a day, it’s very much a season in of itself.
If you’re interested in the above slate, it is one of the most affordable brand name Windows tablet you can buy right now. A 7-inch IPS display running at 1280 x 800 pixels is powered by an Intel Atom quad-core processor along with 1GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD for internal storage.
It also comes with one year of Office 365, and with it unlimited OneDrive cloud storage space.
The Signature Edition means that the device comes tuned for fast performance, with premium antivirus software that never expires, and free of the various trial versions of software that other devices ship with. So that’s that.
Several other products are also listed on the page above, including Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles, a Dell Inspiron laptop, and a Lumia 635.
Pricing on all these products is not available, but will surely be updated closer to the time the deal goes live, so make sure you check back at the time of the sale to see what the discounted price is.
Microsoft will be offering these prices in its store spread across the length and breadth of North America, and of course on the official Microsoft Store website.
