Black Friday shopping list

  • Chicago (IL) - The biggest shopping day of the year is just around the corner: Black Friday, however, has become more about tradition and excitement than it is about spectacular deals. Still, a handful of attractive prices ends up in stores across the country, and for some, it's worth waiting in line for several hours.

    Black Friday ads have not been unveiled officially, but most ads have been circulating round the Internet for some time and CompUSA even announced some of its deals in a press release today. Sites like GottaDeal and, however, have been collecting products and prices for weeks and let consumers more amply prepare for the post-Thanksgiving shopping frenzy.

    We have looked through the lists compiled a list of some of the always-hot tech products - computers, PC packages, monitors, flash drives, and hard drives - to give you a sneak peek at what is expected to be advertised in tomorrow's newspaper.

    Please remember that we cannot guarantee that the products in our list in fact will be offered and we cannot guarantee that the prices in our list are accurate. Also, we do not claim that the list is complete.
