If you're feeling paralyzed by all the deals that are out there, you're in luck. We put together a list of the top 10 tech deals from major retailers on Black Friday. Here they are, ranked in no particular order:
1. Google Home

The device's new smaller counterpart, the Google Home Mini, which normally retails for $49, will be on sale for $29 at many major retailers, including Walmart. What's more, customers who order Google products via Google Express on Walmart.com get $25 off their next order, bringing the price down even further.

Black Friday is one of the few times that Apple Inc. (AAPL - Get Report) discounts its products on a widespread basis.
