All I'm really looking for is a Kindle Paperwhite. Apparently Amazon sold them for $19 a couple days ago (regularly $119) but I didn't hear about it until after they were sold out.

Sorry I was stating It's not a law you're entitled to holiday pay. the question mark was because I thought that was what LITT was saying.

$199 and I think its the 32GB. Staples has it for $250 with a black cover.

Yea I'd say so. It will be as bright as a high beam, so you will most likely want to tone it down a bit. That will help with flashlighting too.

tigerdirect has the same deal (surface+keyboard touch cover) for 249.99

You should be able to get it for free at least that's the way they used to do it with students.

Just an F.Y.I. but a lot of stores are starting "Black Friday" pricing as early as today on some items. I use this website to try and keep track of everything.

Yes, I have it with my CMU email address. The first 6 months are free, then its something like $40 per year after that (not sure how long they let you be a "student" since I just signed up about a year ago). During the first free 6 months, you only get the prime shipping benefits. They dont give you the free streaming movies / tv until you are a paying customer.

I gotta say, that 60 inch for that price is pretty great. That is a nice looking TV, I wonder how the professional reviews are?

Walmart will have (I believe) the 70" for the same price as the 60". I believe it is the same model
