It isn't easy to find deals on the Apple Watch this Black Friday, but Target may be an option if you're a fan of the store.

Samsung 4K TV

This beast of a television set, the Samsung 4K Ultra HD TV, sports a 2160p resolution, 60-inch screen, Smart TV capabilities and Dolby Premium Sound.

Usually, such a product goes for $1,499.99, but Best Buy is offering this television set for only $799.99 with free delivery.

Nvidia Shield

The Nvidia Shield streaming console, which gives users access to games, the Internet and apps, is one of my favorite buys this year.

If you're looking to pick up one for yourself, sadly there is no major discount -- unless you're happy to also snap up the Android Shield TV, and then you can expect $100 dollars off, as well as a free Shield remote (usually $49.99).

Apple MacBook deals

Apple doesn't need to launch sales, but that doesn't mean you can't save some cash on a new MacBook, MacBook Air, iMac or Mac Mini this Black Friday.

Staples, however, is also offering discounts on selected iPad models, and MacMall has a number of deals on Apple computers.
