Microsoft's Black Friday pricing may have you investing in a Mixed Reality headset

There's really no better time than right now to start preparing for Black Friday. Nearly all of the big ads that we've been anticipating have hit already, and now we are continuing to see smaller ones hit.

Microsoft's Black Friday ad has sales that start on November 23 at 12 a.m. EST, and there are a few good ones sprinkled in. You'll be able to find laptops for as little as $300, discounts on Surface Pro bundles of over $300, and the company has a bunch of deals around Mixed Reality hardware.

There will also be a bunch of Xbox consoles and bundles on sale, like what we've seen from other retailers. The unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are both being discounted by $150, and the Harmon Kardon Invoke speaker will be down to just $99 for the day.
