Black Friday Deals on Linux Products

Black Friday is here and SJVN at ZDNet has a list of buying opportunities.

Black Friday isn't just for the usual electronic suspects. There are deals out there for Linux-based Chromebooks, Android tablets, and Linux laptops as well.

Of course the real Black Friday deal about Linux is that you can get it for free every day of the year. But, if you'd rather have something tangible to put into someone's hands, here are some nice deals.

Steven's list is quite good, but if you want to poke around for more options I found four deals places on Amazon where you can browse around for many different kinds of products, including Linux related ones.

Black Friday Deals

Computers & Components

Outlet Discounts

Warehouse Deals

Each of these sections on Amazon offers savings of one kind or another, but you'll have to do a bit of browsing to find the Linux products you're after. The deals come and go fast, so it's impossible to list specific items here as they might be gone by the time you visit the page. Don't dawdle if you see something you want.

You might also want to check out Ebay's listing of Linux computers, Android tablets, Android phones, and Linux books. I am not sure how it compares to Amazon's in terms of prices but it's always a good idea to shop around. You never know where you might find the best deal.
