Cyber Monday deals can disappear fast. But some $299 laptops are still around. (VIDEO)

One way to look for Cyber Monday deals is by visiting the websites of your favorite stores, but it's also helpful to visit websites of specialists like Dealnews.com.

The online deals for Cyber Monday began even before the clock struck midnight, offering US shoppers some deals that won't last through the day – plus some others that might be around a while.

Yes, some of the best deals are only "while supplies last," and that can be a very short time.

That $299 laptop we were going to tell you about? It's a Dell Inspiron ($100 off) but had a "sold out" label on the Microsoft Store by Monday morning.

Other deals are still available, though. (Oh wait! There's a $299 laptop listed on Newegg.com from Acer.)

One way to look for bargains is by visiting the websites of your favorite stores, but it's also helpful to visit websites of shopping-deal specialists like Dealnews.com and Fatwallet.com.

The case of the disappearing Dell Inspiron stands as a reminder of time-tested advice from consumer experts that Cyber Monday shoppers may want to heed: By all means, move quickly when you find a bargain you love, but also make sure you're spending on your priorities (not just what a store wants you to buy).

That's particularly true when it comes to the ever-expanding universe of tech gadgets.
