Amazon Pre-Black Friday 2019: 11 Great Deals On Tech

Tech products will be topping a lot of holiday wish lists this year. In 2017, the Consumer Technology Association's Innovate Celebrate Conference found that 68 percent of adults planned on giving tech-related gifts that year. That's not going to change anytime soon considering the same was found for 2016, the highest on record for the survey's 24-year history.

Of course, some of the best deals on tech can be found online. And during November, the month of Black Friday, you won't have to pay quite as much on big-ticket items as you will during the rest of the year. If you know what you're looking for, online can be the place to look if you're in the market for big savings on tech gear.

As one of the world's largest retailers, of electronic goods or otherwise, Amazon is a prime place to search for early Black Friday deals. Each day, their listing of Black Friday deals grows. We’ve gone through the listings to find the best pre-Black Friday deals we could find.

Laptops

MacBook Air

Amazon

Apple revamped the MacBook Air in 2018, and it’s a great machine. The device is super slim, making it great for taking on the go, and offers relatively high-powered specs, including an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It offers some great smart features too, including a Touch ID fingerprint sensor at the top-right of the keyboard, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports, meaning it should work with most modern accessories. Safe to say, if you’re in the market for a new laptop and like Apple’s macOS operating system, the new MacBook Air is the way to go.

Right now on Amazon, the MacBook Air is available for $900, which is almost $200 off its normal price of $1,099.

Dell Inspiron 14 5000

Amazon

If you want a decent Windows 10 laptop at a relatively affordable price, then the Dell Inspiron 13 5000 may well be the way to go. The laptop is relatively sleek and stylish, plus it offers an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage — all for only a little more than $600. Around the edges, you’ll get plenty of ports for all your connectivity needs, and the device is a 2-in-1 — so you can flip the screen around to use it in laptop mode if you so choose.

The laptop normally comes at $650, but it’s currently available on Amazon for $614.94.

Acer Spin 5

Considering how many tech products are on the market, it's no wonder there's bound to be some kind of electronic device towards the top of the list for someone you know. It makes extra sense considering how much we use tech for in our day-to-day lives. We live on our phones. We work on our laptops. Tablets are like the best remote control ever while also making pretty great gaming consoles. With so many different screens to choose from, some people just haven't. They've been paralyzed by choice, afraid to get an iPad in case the next iPhone is even bigger than the tablet.

The Acer Spin 5 is a chance to get it all, in one place, at a reasonable price, considering all of the bells and whistles. First of all, the Acer Spin's a virtual assistant, with built-in Alexa support. It's also a tablet, with an impressive 15.6" fully responsive multi-touch display. Things will look stunning on it, as well, as the Acer Spin plays back video up to 1920 x 1080 in resolution.

You'll be able to use the Acer for absolutely anything, as well, with its 8GB of RAM and 1TB internal HDD. When you're done with the tablet functions, just spin the laptop around and you have a fully-working machine for business, work, or gaming! The Acer Spin is like the Swiss Army Knife of laptops. If someone you know needs an all-around electronic system to use for everything, like a new college student or someone upgrading their career, this is it.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro

Amazon

A great way to step up the security of your home is through a video doorbell, which basically replaces your existing doorbell and doubles as a security camera. The Ring Video Doorbell Pro has an HD video camera built right into it, and will deliver alerts to your smartphone whenever the button is pressed — so even if you’re away from home, you’ll still be able to see who’s at the door. 

Normally, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro comes at $249 — but it’s now available for a super impressive $70 off its normal price, bringing the total to only $179.

Samsung Galaxy S9

Amazon

The Samsung Galaxy S9 may have been replaced by the Galaxy S10, but that doesn’t make it any less of an awesome phone. The device offers a relatively modern design with an awesome camera, but perhaps even better are the specs under the hood. You’ll get a super-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which means that the device should be more than powerful enough for almost all day-to-day use. 

Normally $600, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is an absolute steal at $400. That’s an impressive $200 off.

Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones

Amazon

Bose has long been the top name in noise-canceling headphones, but the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones arguably take that crown. The headphones offer a stunningly sleek design that should look great on anyone’s head, plus they have plenty of padding to keep them comfortable while in use. Even better is the sound quality — the headphones offer plenty of bass, with a well-tuned mid-range, and a ton of detail in the high end. Then there’s the noise cancelation — and these headphones will easily block out most outside noise.

While the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones are normally $350, you can get them right now for only $278.

Apple iPad Pro

Amazon

The Apple iPad Pro is probably the best tablet out there, thanks to its awesomely modern design and powerful specs under the hood. This particular model has a big 11-inch display, with nice rounded corners to help with that modern design. It’s also super-powerful, thanks to its Apple A12X Bionic processor and 64GB of storage, meaning that it’s more than good enough for browsing the web, social media, watching movies, and even graphic design. Safe to say, if you’re in the market for a tablet and want something super powerful, the iPad Pro is the way to go.

While the 11-inch iPad Pro normally comes at $799, it’s now available for $650. That’s a pretty impressive discount.
