I know what everyone is wondering, how does this compare to the laptops on Black Friday? The problem with this question is that it's really almost like comparing apples to oranges.
The two closest laptops sold on Black Friday that are in the same league as the HP tm2t Tablet are the HP 15.6" Laptop w/ Core i3 Processor, 4GB RAM and 500GB HDD for $499.99 at BestBuy and the HP 17.3" Laptop w/ Core i5 Processor, 6GB RAM and 640GB HDD for $899.99 at Costco.
The most obvious difference between the tm2t Tablet and the other two laptops is that well, the tm2t is a Tablet with a touchscreen. From a technical aspect, all three of these laptops are going to perform very well to almost any task you put them to. The real decision comes down to if you want or are interested in purchasing a tablet, because if so, this is an absolutely great price for one. (Tablets of the same caliber easily run $1000+ from manufacturers like Lenovo and Toshiba)

One final important note, this tablet does not include an optical (CD/DVD) drive. If you need an optical drive, you can get an external USB DVD Writer for around $30-40 at most computer electronics stores.
