Hhgregg is a regional electronics retailer with locations in 20 states primarily east of the Mississippi that has made a name for itself over the last couple of years with Black Friday deals on iPads and other popular tech items. This year is no exception, though as with other retailers, the Apple tablets aren't receiving the same amount of attention as in previous editions.
The 16GB iPad Air 2 will be a doorbuster starting at 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving, but it will be receiving a modest $50 price cut during that time to $399.99. The rest of the weekend, the original 16GB Air will be $50 off, and the ad promises sales on all iPads of up to $50 off.
Another notable doorbuster is a Proscan 7-inch Android tablet, which will be available for just $19.99 on Thanksgiving. That's as low a price as we've seen, even less than the $29 RCA Android slate Walmart will be selling. If you want a detachable keyboard to go along with the tablet, Hhgregg has a no-name 7-inch Android with one for $48, or a 9-inch model running Android 4.4 KitKat with a keyboard and case for $69.
The Black Friday ad lists a number of laptop deals, though none as eye-opening as the $20 tablet doorbuster. The lowest price is $199.99 for either a 14-inch Windows 9 HP notebook with AMD E1 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD, or a 11.6-inch Samsung Chromebook with Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of memory, and 16 gigs of solid-state storage. Note, however, that Best Buy and Office Depot/OfficeMax are selling an Acer Chromebook with similar specs for half that price.
Other laptop specials include 15.6-inch models like an HP with an AMD A8 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, and 1TB hard drive for $349.99, or $90 cheaper than the current price; an Asus Touch Flip with Intel Core i3, 6GB of RAM, and 500GB for $399.99, which is $5 more than a similar configuration sold by Costco with 2GB more memory; and a Toshiba with Core i7, 8GB of RAM, and terabyte hard drive for $599.99, or $100 less than normal.
Hhgregg only has one desktop deal in its Black Friday ad, a 23-inch HP all-in-one PC with Celeron CPU, 4GB of RAM, and terabyte hard drive for $479.99, though this is only $20 less than what it currently costs on the company's website.
