Update (12/7 10:30am): Staples (in-store only) has 20% off select iPads: iPad Air from $319, iPad mini 2 from $239, iPad mini from $199, more.

Best Buy matches many of its Black Friday iPad Prices with $50-$100 off Apple’s latest release of iPads with free shipping or site-to-store. That’s tied with the lowest pure prices we’ve seen on many of these models.

Update: MacMall still has the 256GB for $70 deal but Amazon is over

Amazon offers the PNY 246GB USB 3.0 Flash drive for $69.99 shipped. That’s almost half off of list and the lowest price we’ve seen on this Flash drive that is bigger and faster than many hard drive/SSD solutions. PNY gets an impressive 4.3/5 star reviews and features:

  • Transfer speeds approximately 10 times faster than standard PNY USB 2.0 Flash Drives
  • Store and transfer large files faster than ever with USB 3.0 technology
  • Allows for quick and easy transfer of all content
  • Transfer one movie in 13 seconds with a Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive vs. 5 minutes with a standard USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • The 256GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive can hold approximately 47,349 songs
  • Backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports, so you can utilize any USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 port; compatible with most PC and Mac laptop and desktop computers
  • Free technical support
  • Sliding collar, capless design with integrated loop makes it easy to attach to key chains, backpacks and etc.

While this could make a great stocking-stuffer, it also could serve as a backup drive for a MacBook Air or a huge Sneaker-net drive for the house. I personally like filling these things up with music and attaching it to my car’s USB so I pretty much have my whole collection with me on the road.

Don’t need quite as much? Get a 128GB version for exactly half price or 64GB for $19.99 or 32GB for $12.99 expand full story

NewEgg offers the Canon ImageCLASS LBP6200d Monochrome USB printer for $39.99 shipped. That’s the lowest price we’ve seen on any laser printer from a top tier manufacturer. This one is pretty bare bones with a USB interface and B&W printing but offers speedy duplex printing up to 26 ppm and high quality 2400 x 600 dpi. Amazon (where it is $60) reviewers give this 4/5 stars. Some features:

  • Space saving design will fit right on a desktop, reduce paper use with automatic two-sided printing right out of the box
  • Save time with print speeds of up to 26 pages per minute, first print in approx. 6 seconds
  • Efficient Energy Saver mode uses approximately 1.3 Watts, cutting energy usage and costs
  • The toner and drum are both combined into just one easy to replace Canon cartridge 126 to help improve image processing and precise character and overall image quality.

Replacement Toner cartridges for this one are also inexpensive starting at around $30. If you don’t already have one, you’ll need a USB A-B cable which starts at about $2.

Update: B&H now carries it for only $109 shipped.

Update: Adorama has dropped its price to $114.99 shipped

Amazon has the Western Digital My Book 4TB USB 3.0 hard drive for $124 shipped.  That’s a current low price on this 4/5 star rated backup drive that is both great for backing up Macs and PCs as well as fast storage for media and other files. Connect it to an Airport Extreme or other USB-enabled router for a great NAS experience.

Bonus: If you have a few extra bucks, plunk down $144.99 and get a 5TB Seagate USB 3.0 hard drive bundled with Adobe Lightroom 5.0 from Ebay. Lightroom 5 alone is at least $75-$150 depending where you get it so it becomes a no brainer if you are in the market for both.
