TVs, laptops, tablets on sale in April

What's on sale in April?
text

April is a good time to save on TVs, laptops and tablets -- oh my.

"April is actually a pretty good month for both televisions and laptops," says Jim Barry, spokesman for the Consumer Electronics Association. "Part of it is because it's the end of the model year. And it's the end of the fiscal year for Japanese companies -- they're trying to clear the books."

Generally, shoppers can expect discounts of about 10 percent on TVs and laptops, he says. With TVs, "it's really all over the place," depending on the company and the model, he says. TVs without some of the latest high-tech features (such as Internet interface or 3-D) might offer greater discounts, he says.

Ditto with laptops. The big influx of tablets means shoppers can find bigger discounts on more traditional models, Barry says.

Mother's Day, graduations and Father's Day come in May and June, and that means good prices in April on accessories for electronics -- things such as cases, docking stations and carrying bags, Barry says.
