The sales aren't over yet

With the recent explosion of online sales during Black Friday, the follow-up online shopping day known as Cyber Monday isn’t as meaningful as it once was. Still, it serves as a second chance to save some money if you slept through the previous week’s ode to consumerism. Here are the 13 best tech deals we’ve found for Cyber Monday 2016.

TARGET: 15 percent off many items

Didn’t see a Black Friday deal on the particular tech product you wanted? Now’s your chance to get a few bucks off anyway with Target’s 15 percent store-wide sale. The discount has some exceptions—no products from Google, Bose, Sonos, or GoPro; no DSLR cameras or lenses; and no TVs from Samsung or LG—but otherwise it does stack with existing deals.

For instance, you can get an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 bundle for $212.50 before tax, a Roku Streaming Stick for just under $30 before tax, or a 55-inch Vizio M-Series 4K HDR TV for $637.50 before tax. It’s also an easy way to score a discount on Apple products. The deal is good both in stores and online through Monday.

OFFICE DEPOT and QUILL: Dell 24-inch 1080p IPS monitor, $100 (reg. $130)

For desktop PC users, the holiday season can be a great time to upgrade your monitors on the cheap. Dell’s 24-inch SE2416HSC1 is a fine candidate for multi-monitor setups, with an IPS display that provides wide-viewing angles. Office Depot’s sale is only allowing one per customer, but you should be able to grab additional monitors on Quill.com for the same price.

DELL: XPS 13, $950 (reg. $1,150)

The Dell XPS 13 is one of PCWorld’s highest-rated laptops, with an edge-to-edge 13-inch 1080p display, aluminum-over-carbon fiber design, a speedy 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Although it lacks a touchscreen or the higher-resolution panel of some pricier configurations, the trade-off is nearly double the battery life, clocking 11 hours in our video tests. The $200 discount is marked as a “Doorbuster” on Dell’s Business website, so be ready to jump on this Cyber Monday sale at 9 a.m. Eastern.

DELL: Dropbox Pro 1-year subscription with $25 Dell gift card, $60 (reg. $99)

If you’re planning to take a lot of photos over the holidays, don’t be the fool who forgets to back them up. Right now, Dell Business is selling aone-year subscription to Dropbox Pro—which provides 1TB of cloud storage across all your devices—for $40 off, and sweetening the deal with a $25 e-gift card to spend elsewhere on Dell’s website. You won’t find a better deal for this much online storage space.

DELL: Vizio 50-inch 4K HDR TV with $200 Dell gift card, $600

With a 50-inch TV, 4K resolution isn’t as important as HDR, which improves the quality of those pixels by accentuating the colors in light and dark settings. Vizio’s 50-inch M-Series TV includes both 4K and HDR for good measure, and while Dell’s Cyber Monday price is no different than other retailers’ right now, it also includes a $200 Dell.com gift card. You won’t find a 4K HDR TV anywhere else for this price, assuming you can find a sound way to spend that gift money later.

BEST BUY: Apple TV, $102.49 using Visa Checkout (reg. $150)

Here’s a rare chance to get Apple’s streaming set-top box at a competitive price, though you’ll have to jump through some hoops. Best Buy is currently selling the 32GB model for $127.49, but you can save an additional $25 by paying with Visa Checkout. Just create a Visa Checkout account, add a credit or debit card, and make sure to select Visa Checkout as the payment method on Best Buy’s website.

Not keen on Apple’s ecosystem? Try this instead: Amazon Fire TV for $75, plus Fire TV Stick for $30, subtract the $25 Visa Checkout discount, and you’ll pay $80 plus tax for the pair. That’s $50 off the usual price.

NEWEGG: Huawei Honor 8 unlocked phone, $265 (reg. $400)

The Huawei Honor 8 is an unlocked Android phone that doesn’t have many compromises given the price tag. It includes a 5.2-inch 1080p display, octo-core processor with 4GB of RAM, 12-megapixel dual-lens rear cameras, a fingerprint reader, and UCB-C charging. Newegg has the best deal we’ve seen on this phone yet, at $265 for the 32GB model or $315 with 64GB of storage.

AMAZON: Seagate Expansion Desktop 8TB External HDD, $170 (reg. $240)

A good rule of thumb is that you can never have too much storage space, and Amazon is offering it for cheap with this 8TB desktop Seagate USB 3.0 drive. Hook it up to your computer for routine backups, or better yet, connect it to your router’s USB port so your entire network can access the storage space. If 8TB seems like overkill, the 4TB version is also a solid deal at $100.

NEWEGG: Acer 35-inch curved 2560x1080 FreeSync monitor, $500 (reg. $1,000)

Thanks to this deal, a giant curved gaming monitor doesn’t have to cost more than your actual PC. Newegg’s price for the Acer XZ350CU is half off the list price at $500, and about $72 less than the current asking price on Amazon. And if you pair it with an AMD graphics card, you can enjoy the anti-tearing effects of FreeSync adaptive sync tech.

NEWEGG: Asus GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics card, $220 (reg. $260) after rebate

Nvidia’s new mainstream GPU offers smooth 60 frames per second gaming on 1080p monitors, and it’s ready for virtual reality if you decide to go that route. Provided you can shoulder the burden of a mail-in rebate, Asus’ Turbo GTX 1060 is the lowest price we’ve seen yet for this card with 6GB of video RAM. (The 3GB variants inch closer to $200, but might not be as future-proof.)

Just remember to file the rebate, or you won’t actually get much of a deal.

Newegg: CyberPowerPC gaming desktop for $800 (reg. $1,070)

CyberPowerPC’s “Desktop Computer Gamer Extreme S146” includes a 3.5GHz Intel Core i5 6600K CPU, AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB GPU, 8GB of RAM, a 120GB solid state drive, a 2TB hard drive, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit. If you try to build your own PC using the same components, you’ll spend about the same $800 that Newegg is asking for this ready-made machine—but this one saves you some work. It also includes a copy of Civilization VI so you can hop right into an all-night strategy binge.

Walmart: Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard for $18 (reg. $40)

Anyone who’s decided to put a PC, Chromebox, or cheap Raspberry Pi box in their living room will probably want a keyboard-trackpad combo to go with it. Walmart currently has a steal on one from Logitech, so you can browse desktop streaming video sites or your sweet Kodi setup with ease.

B&H: Apple 13.3-inch MacBook Pro (2016 model), $1,399 (reg. $1,499)

If you’re looking for a MacBook Pro upgrade but aren’t interested in the pricier touch bar version, B&H has a $100 discount on the entry-level model in either space gray or silver. It comes with a 2.0GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB solid state drive, and 13.3-inch 2560x1600 resolution display. And with B&H, customers outside of New York state don’t pay sales tax up front. (Of course, you’ll be a good citizen and report the purchase on your tax returns in April, won’t you?)
