Save $47 on this 2TB Seagate External Hard Drive at Amazon for Black Friday

Black Friday is less than two days away but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until November 27 for the best Black Friday deals on external hard drives. In fact, let’s take a look at one of the best Amazon Black Friday deals around for an external hard drive: A 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim that costs just $53.

If you need spacious amounts of storage and portability at a price that’s easy on your wallet, then look no further than this external hard drive from Seagate. (And if you still want to shop around for other external hard drives, be sure and check out our guide to the best Black Friday external hard drive deals.)

Generally, it can be difficult to find a lightweight external hard drive that also boasts a massive storage capacity. Especially if you need one that’s less than $100. But thanks to Black Friday and Amazon, you really can have it all because the Seagate Backup Plus Slim is only 4.6 ounces and still offers 2TB of storage. And since you’d only be paying $53 for a hard drive that normally sells for nearly twice that at $100, you’d be getting 2TB for a steal!

But there’s more to the Seagate Backup Plus Slim than just its storage capacity. With this deal you would also be getting an external hard drive that is compatible with both MacOS and Windows, has an easy-to-use plug and play connectivity with its support for USB 3.0, and native tools like customizable backups and folder mirroring. If this is your first external drive, this deal from Seagate is a great way to start getting into the habit of backing up your work at a very affordable price.

However, if this external hard drive still doesn’t fit your needs, you may want to take a look at another comparable deal: the 1TB Western Digital Easystore. You’ll get an 1TB of storage space and the same easy-to-use connectivity with USB 3.0. With this deal, you’ll still get quite a bit of storage at an even lower price: just $48.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Gen) with Clock on table

Black Friday deals at Amazon are a great time to grab luxury smart home items you wouldn't get during the rest of the year. For instance, take the Amazon Echo Dot with Clock. If you don't already have an Alexa device, this is a good starting point. Since it's down to just $35 after a significant 42% discount ($25 off), why not grab it? It's a good starting point for building a larger smart home system with video doorbells, smart lights and more. Amazon Black Friday deals are already well underway, so grab this one while it's still available.

Why you should buy the Amazon Echo Dot with Clock
There isn't anything too fancy about the Amazon Echo Dot line. It has no visual interface, unless you count the digital clock in this model. You do all of your interfacing via voice commands with Alexa. On that front, there really isn't a limit to what she can do. If you only have the Echo Dot, Alexa will send texts for you, add items to your Amazon list, play music, or look up info like word definitions, the weather or who won last night's football game.

acer aspire vero review 04

There are Black Friday laptop deals on even the best computers out there, but if all you need is a basic device for simple tasks, you should be going for a budget option like the Acer Aspire 1. Originally priced at $230, it's currently even cheaper from Amazon for Black Friday at $189, for savings of $41. Its price may return to normal at any moment though, as we're not sure how much stock is allocated for the shopping holiday, so if you want to get this laptop for less than $200, you need to complete the purchase as soon as you can.

Why you should buy the Acer Aspire 1 laptop
The Acer Aspire 1 isn't going to offer similar performance as the best laptops with its Intel Celeron N4500 processor, integrated Intel UHD Graphics, and 4GB of RAM. However, these specifications are more than enough for day-to-day functions like browsing the internet, checking social media, and building reports. The laptop is also a great choice for watching streaming shows, as it features a 15.6-inch screen with Full HD resolution, so you'll be getting sharp details and bright colors.
