November 26, 2012, 9:25 AM — The blur of in-store and online Black Friday deals came at us since October, but Cyber Monday offerings really only started to trickle out over the weekend and are in full force today, Nov. 26.
SLIDESHOW: Network World Holiday Gift Guide
Heres a rundown of some of the better tech bargains to be had for those of you who waited through the weekend or need to go on another binge following Black Friday.
Cyber Monday isnt just a day for Amazon, which is celebrating Cyber Monday Deals Week, if that makes any sense. The Amazon website is laid out well, with products easily visible by categories and countdown clocks ticking away to show you how long deals last and what percentage of certain Lightning Deals are left. Items such as iPad cases are marked down by 50% or more, while laptops can be had for 20% off (and there are a lot of Windows 7 ones on the list) and wireless routers for 40% off or more.
Among the tech product markdowns:
*ASUS S56CA-WH31 15.6-Inch Ultrabook: This Windows 8 laptop is priced at $490, down from $700. It boasts an Intel Core i3-3217U 1.8 GHz processor and 500GB of storage.
* Linksys E1200 Wireless-N Router: Its a little hard for us to imagine this going over big under a Christmas tree, but might be a candidate for a family gift for those families still at 802.11b or 11a and not about to stick around for 11ac. The router is priced at $30, down from $60. With Linksys being a Cisco brand, you can set up the device using Cisco Connect software if you wish.
*X-Gear Mens RFID Security Wallet: This Lightning Deal (when the supply is gone, its gone) might make for a good stocking stuffer -- $10 (half off) for this wallet designed to block would-be RFID snoopers from getting at your personal info.
