    The $40-$60 for the iPad is in line with what Apple offered last year. Via their website, they’ll probably offer that on the current model on Friday morning. MacRumors will likely have the round up this week of Apple bargains from around the web as we progress towards Friday. (Thankfully, I’m not having to shop for a new iPad this year. The husband and I are looking at an Apple TV, though, so we’re keeping an eye on the sales.)

    Going to Sears for the Nook Simple Touch wont even be worth it. I read an article that said that sears will have at least 4 of them stock. I will pass. I hope I find some good Cyber Monday deals though.

    Jane, Walmart and others are offering a Double Power T-711 7″ WiFi 4GB tablet with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The reviews are mixed, but the Cyber Monday price will be @ $49 at Walmart. How do I know when and where to leap into the tablet pool?
