Black Friday deals for publishing pros: check here for new deals

The day after Thanksgiving Day is known as Black Friday here in the States, the day when the holiday shopping season is supposed to begin. It is called Black Friday, in case you didn’t know, because it is the day retailers gain enough sales to make a profit for the year (from being in the red to being in the black).

(I’m sure you know all that, but the rules of journalism do dictate an explanation.)

This year, many device makers are concerned that sales of PCs and tablets may be down, and so are discounting. This makes it a good time to upgrade those devices you will need through 2015. Here are some of the deals out there (we’ll keep adding them as we find them):
