Best tech deals and early Christmas specials

There are many tough decisions a man must make during his lifetime, one of which is whether he should a buy a curved HD, or flat UHD LED TV.

You see, two of the specials on offer this week are TVs, and for almost the same price you can choose between a 48″ curved Full HD screen or a UHD 49″ beauty.

Many questions need to be asked before making the decision, such as: Will the curve make any noticeable difference? Do I have access to UHD feeds or media which can exploit the high resolution of a UHD TV? Can my eyes and brain tell the difference between UHD and Full HD at around 50 inches?

Whichever conclusion you reach, one thing is certain… you will be the coolest kid on the block if you get either.

Besides the TVs, here are this week’s best tech deals.
