Cyber Monday tech deals sampler

The line between what constitutes a Black Friday 2016 deal and a Cyber Monday one has pretty much disappeared, but what we have here are a handful of tech deals specifically available for Cyber Monday, which is Nov. 28.

Cyber Monday got its start as an online-only alternative to once in-store focused Black Friday, but of course Black Friday, Black November, etc., is now a mishmash of online and in-store action. Nevertheless, some retailers still trot out the Cyber Monday marketing term, and we'll accommodate them briefly here by highlighting a few of their deals.

(Black Friday & Cyber Monday watchers such as BFads and Best Black Friday have been a big help in keeping tabs on deals.)

Dell, which also has been busy for Black Friday (Nov. 25), touts its best prices of the year for small businesses on Cyber Monday. Examples include:

*$200 off a Dell XPS 13.3-inch laptop with Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The Windows 10 machine can be yours for $950.

*More dramatically, you can save almost $425 on the Dell XPS 8900 Desktop with Intel Core i7 processor, a GeForce GT730 Graphics Card, 1TB of storage and Windows 10 Pro (final price of $730).

*Network your gear with a Linksys EA8500 Wireless Router for $250 rather than the usual $370. This comes bundled with an RRE6700 Wi-Fi range extender and $50 gift card.

Separately, Walmart is kicking off "Cyber Week Deals" on Black Friday, Nov. 25, but also has some special Cyber Monday deals for Nov. 28, starting just after midnight. 

*If you'd rather get your Dell stuff from Walmart than Dell, one Cyber Monday deal is for a Dell Inspiron 15-inch gaming edition laptop for $1,000 ($300 savings)

*Samsung 65-inch 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV for $1000 rather than the usual $2,200 (!).

*This sounds like potential trouble, but you can get a Call of Duty Dragonfly Drone, a quadcopter equipped with camera, for $89 rather than the usual $100.

Meanwhile, Belkin is offering 30% off site wide all day (35% off if you can snag an email coupon) on Monday, Nov. 28, though this does exclude some items such as the PowerHouse Charge Dock for Apple Watch.

Others, such as online retailer Newegg, will also have special Cyber Monday pages on their websites come Nov. 28.
