Last year my awful sister-in-law decided she and her husband needed to go shopping Thanksgiving; my wife and I hosted. It was nice and peaceful without them; I hope they do the same thing this year.

Ehh, it's a name. Black Friday stuff is almost entirely crap. Or rather, lacking features you'd rather have for a few dollars more, like more HDMI ports or a power supply that's actually large enough.

We've had laptops come into the shop with plastic pieces in place of the CD drive, and they lack the header on the motherboard to install one.

Makes me lol

On the plus side,  if they move Black Friday, it'll make places go back to closing on Thanksgiving.

Have to start up the rabid frothing consumerism. We will be seeing x-mas shiat on the shelves with back to school sales.

Different configurations of the same model. I'm typing on a machine like that right now. I only had a limited amount to spend on my computer so as I already have an external USB DVD drive I decided to go with the model with an Nvidia 840M inside and no optical drive instead of the one at roughly the same price with a Blu-ray drive and integrated video only.

 i just wish there was a place where you didn't have to wait for a sale. a place with low prices, everyday. with a friendly, helpful staff, who know i'm more than just a customer. i'm one of the family. throw in hassle-free parking, and hours that work for me. but no such goddam luck

Thankfully my Christmas shopping is already done. I picked up some nice 1:24 die cast cars and a box set of the first ten Hardy Boys books at Costco, and the Columbia outlet store had kids' hiking boots on clearance.

Why is this so surprising? A lot of new laptops no longer have optical drives. I can't tell you the last time I even opened mine.

Yep. Just bought a new Lenovo laptop. At one point, for the exact same price, I could eschew the DVD drive for a better processor. I tried to think of the last time I had to use a DVD drive, could not think of one, so decided to go without.

It's already in the stock room during BTS season. The retailer I work for is starting to send us Valentine's items.

We're not doing gifts this year aside from ones for nieces / nephews, and those are already taken care of.   My 'merry xmas to me' list is comprised of 2 things, neither is likely to be on sale, so they can both wait till next year.
