For those looking to do just that, we've compiled a smattering of gadgets on the other side of the break to fill the void. Hand-held, laptop, console and headset options are all there, so a range of shopping sensibilities should be adequately catered to.

Razer Blade (2013)

Price: $1,499
Regular Price: $1,999
Engadget Score: 84
Buy: Amazon

Last year's 14-inch Razer Blade is seeing an expected discount now that the 2014 model has broken from cover. Specs remain respectable, and the price tag is now $1,000 less than that shiny new option. This is also the lowest sticker we've seen on the 2013 unit in the past three months.

OUYA Console

Price: $75
Regular Price: $100
Engadget Score: 69
Buy: Amazon

The Android-driven OUYA console is now available for the lowest price we've seen over the last month. While the console hasn't taken quite the gaming hold many thought it would, it still offers an affordable living room option for the frugal.

Nintendo 2DS

Price: $120
Regular Price: $130
Engadget Global Score: 80
Buy: Dell

The Nintendo faithful that haven't yet splurged for last fall's handheld may find this $10 discount tempting enough to take the leap. The 2DS was available for a mere $99 as recently as last month, so those who can hold their horses may be in for more savings.

Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.5 Headset

Price: $42.65
Regular Price: $150
Engadget Global Score: 81
Buy: Amazon

The F.R.E.Q.5 made its debut just over a year ago, and now the PC and Mac headset is offered up with a $100 price drop. Of course, when you're not playing that RPG or FPS, the cans double as a rather flashy-looking pair of headphones for mobile music streaming.
