It may be the Monday after a long holiday weekend, but some are still scouring for deals online today rather than refocusing on work.
Cyber Monday has become just as popular as Black Friday, the shopping holiday that requires many shoppers to leave their homes. On Cyber Monday, whether at home or at work, consumers can search on their favorite e-commerce sites for deals on clothes, electronics and household items. Computers are often the hot-ticket item that will always top the list on Cyber Monday.
According to statistics site Muchneeded.com, Cyber Monday is expected to rake in $6.6 billion in the U.S. Electronics still top the list of Cyber Monday deals, with small laptops, streaming equipment and tablets leading the pack. Video games, electronic toys, and clothing and accessories follow.
If you’re on a tight budget, but in desperate need of a new laptop or tablet, you’re in luck. There are numerous deals on computers this Cyber Monday. Below, we’ve curated a short list of the best deals you can get on computers for less than $300.
All prices listed are before taxes and shipping.
