    Black Friday / Cyber Monday

    So, did any of you guys get some great deals this year? I saw some good prices, haven't pulled the trigger on anything big. Still looking at some Lenovo / Dell laptops, a possible upgrade for the wife.

    Got a bunch of wiring installation tools for the office....
    Just had our office manager order a bunch of stuff that B&H Video had, such as some of the Acer 26" IPS monitors....MSPR around 190 they had for 99 bucks.

    We're cutting back a bit on XMas spending at our house, got a bit crazy in the last decade. Wanna focus a bit more money on stuff for the boat.

    I got a new laptop. 800 bucks for a Swift 5 sf515-51t with a i7 quadcore, 16gb ram, and a 512 ssd drive, it only weighs 2.2 lbs. A new laptop was very much in need, as, my old one was painfully slow, and could only be used to do the most basic data analysis. I am hoping this new one, with the quadcore, will be much better at crunching the data.

    Great specs for the price.. I prefer a bit smaller (14") ultrabooks, but this thing is light!

    I only picked up a couple of Seagate USB hdds for cold storage, 2TB USB3s for $49 ea. I do have a linux NAS on the network, this is just better format to carry around or put in a safe.
