While Black Friday is done and dusted, it is time for Cyber Monday. For those unaware of the term, Cyber Monday is a term used for the Monday that follows Black Friday. It is a one-day online shopping event where companies lower prices (and hence, profits) in order to gain more revenue. Generally speaking, Cyber Monday deals aren’t as good as Black Friday’s, but they are still something every consumer electronics/gadgets enthusiast should look into. Since we’re a technology blog, we’ll be covering different Cyber Monday deals throughout the day. In this post, we’ve listed Cyber Monday deals on Microsoft products which you can check out after the break!
