We love this time of the year, as it affords us an excuse to stuff mounds of moist turkey and other delicious fixings down our gullets (while only feeling semi-guilty about it), houses and neighborhoods are dressed up with decorative lights and lawn ornaments, kids are suddenly on their best behavior in hopes of earning heaps of toys, and the sales -- oh, the sales!
Note: We focused mostly on PC hardware deals. For more gadget-oriented deals, visit our sister site TechRadar for more Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
Black Friday is now in the rear view mirror, which means we can look forward to a line up Cyber Monday deals. One word of note before we switch gears -- even though Black Friday is over with, many of the deals listed will last through the weekend. We'll do our best to cross out the ones we know have already expired, but if you see something that catches your eye, it doesn't hurt to click.
Banking on a MicrosoftSurface tablet for you or some other lucky person on your gift list this holiday season?

It's getting easier by the day to blow through a paycheck, isn't it? Sure, gas prices are high from coast-to-coast, but if you're an impulse shopper with a Internet connection, you have about as much chance as Bill Paxton did in Aliens. That's because daily deal sites are all over the web. It's become such a 'thing' that even Newegg is getting in on the action with its NeweggFlash portal.
The busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, has come and gone, but fear not. Even though Black Friday is officially over, many of the deals still remain, and even more are just getting started. On top of it all, Cyber Monday 2012 is here!
We understand you'd rather not waste your time wading through discounted toasters and button-up shirts, so we went out and did the dirty work for you. What we brought back with us is a robust collection of PC-related parts, accessories, and games, all organized into handy categories. If you see "(BF)" next to an item, it's a Black Friday deal (we'll cross out the ones that are expired), and "(CM)" indicates a Cyber Monday deal. Also, we're not fans of mail-in-rebates, so we've omitted most of those deals. For the few that we include, they're represented with an asterisk.
As the weekend progresses, we'll be updating this list with new deals as they emerge, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often. And if you happen to find a killer deal we missed, be sure to share it with us and the rest of our readers in the comments section below.

In case you partied too hard over the weekend and forgot the date, today is September 19th. So fill up your mug with grog and put on your eye-patch, lest you be labled a scallywag on Talk Like a Pirate Day! With your remaining good eye, be on the lookout for deals, like the one from Telltale games.
Hot on the heels of the successful LinkedIn IPO, Groupon has filed its S-1 paperwork with the government to have a public offering of its own. The online purveyor of deals is looking to raise $750 million. Can Groupon’s 83 million subscribers get it the faith it needs? Its profits certainly won’t.
