We've seen some of the best Chromebooks go on sale in recent weeks, and that's a situation we're only going to get more of as we start closing in on Black Friday. Our latest deal isn't going to blow your hair back with bleeding-edge specs or performance numbers, but if price is a major concern for you, you're probably not going find anything more affordable than this HP Chromebook on sale at Walmart for just $79.
Music fans know that if you're looking for the best wireless headphones, it doesn't get much better than Sony's XM line. The combination of excellent sound quality and best-in-class noise cancellation always pushes them to the top of our lists. Maybe the one caveat with these headphones is their premium price tag, which typical sits in the $300-$400 range, but that's not the case today. Right now you can pick up the Sony WH-1000XM4 for just $228.
Amazon builds some of the best streaming devices around, from "lowly" HD models to the beefy Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max — and they all make for great gifts. They give you access to thousands of streaming apps, games, and Alexa commands, and they won't empty your wallet in the process. Right now, they're even more affordable, as Amazon is discounting three models by up to fifty percent.
Nobody likes missing a great deal, but luckily for you, sometimes the good ones have a way of repeating themselves. We've already been very tempted by Samsung's best phones and all the big promotions it runs on them, and now it's bringing one back for an early Black Friday deal on the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Right now you can get a $300 instant rebate on the flagship foldable, plus up to $1,000 in trade-ins, letting you walk out the door with a new Fold 4 for as little as $620.
Black Friday is still a few weeks away, but the smartphone deals are already starting to roll in for shoppers looking to get a heard start. Today we're checking out a great sale on the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, our premium pick for best Android phone of the year. For a limited time, you can pick up the flagship device for as little as $900.
The Amazon Echo (4th gen) is an easy recommendation for the best smart speaker for most people's needs. It offers excellent sound quality for its size, the built-in Alexa assistant is quick to respond to commands — and that it looks like a mini Death Star. Today's deal knocks the Echo down to an all-time low of $50, making it the perfect time to pick one up for yourself or as a gift for the holidays.
Google's Nest Audio is one of the best smart speakers you'll find. It sounds great for its size, it picks up voice commands surprisingly well, and it integrates seamlessly with other Nest and Google devices. We called it a "hard yes'" buy at $99 for one speaker, so imagine how we feel about this deal that gives you two speakers and costs $10 less?
Bose makes some of the best wireless headphones on the market, and the Bose QuietComfort 45 are testament to that. Today, those headphones are back down to $249 — that's $80 off the MSRP and only $20 above their all-time low. If you've been considering a pair of premium noise-canceling, over-the-ear headphones, they don't get much better than this, not at this price point.
Getting a solid smart home security camera isn't just for keeping your home safe from intruders. Their built-in microphone and speaker make it a great way to check in with your kids while you are away, and its night vision means you can keep an eye on mischievous pets when the sun goes down. The 2021 Nest Cam typically retails for $100, but right now you can pick one (or more) up at a $30 discount.
Whether you're looking for a gift for a music lover, or need some for yourself, these Jabra Elite earbuds are worth your consideration. They're durable, they sound great, and they're stylish enough to go straight from the gym to the office. Right now, Jabra has four members of its Elite line discounted by up to 44%, meaning you can pick up a pair for as little as $50.
Samsung keeps the deals rolling this week with a great discount on one of its most popular 4K smart TVs known as The Frame. You're likely already familiar with the set, but for those that aren't, The Frame is a QLED 4K television line known for its beautiful matte display and customizable bezels. It's thin enough to hang on your wall, and it comes with digital artwork you can display. It's typically on the more expensive side, but thanks to this early Black Friday deal, you can pick up the 55-inch model for $1,000 instead of its normal $1,500.
It's been a big week for Samsung sales, as we've already seen big discounts on their Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Tabs, and the Galaxy Z Fold 4. We're keeping things rolling today with a great deal on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung's other flagship foldable. It has a clamshell design, high-end performance, and right now you can pick one up for as little as $310.
Chromebooks are so much more than basic budget laptops these days, and the Acer Spin 714 is the perfect example of that. With an Intel i5 processor, a gorgeous 14-inch touch display, and military-grade durability, it's got the hardware to measure up against full-blown Windows laptops. But premium Chromebooks have premium price tags, right? Not today, as Best Buy places the Spin 714 on sale for just $500.
Part smartphone, part tablet, and all awesome, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4's only real downside is its high price tag. Even if it is one of the best Android phones you can buy, not many of us are willing to pony up $1,800 for a smartphone. Today, though, you can grab one for as little as $150 depending on the device you have to trade in.
Chromebooks are compelling devices on their own, but during holiday sales, they always reach a fever pitch. These already-affordable laptops have access to Google's vast app ecosystem, meaning there are thousands of apps and games at your fingertips (literally) on top of all the websites and PWAs you'd expect from Chrome. They receive system updates years longer than Android tablets or phones, and they're available in every size and power level you could imagine from the most premium ultrabooks to all-in-one desktops and beyond.
When it comes to Android tablets, Samsung’s Galaxy Tabs are among the best. They’re known for great performance, solid build quality, and reliable software updates. In fact, three of the Galaxy Tab series made our list of the best Android tablets you can buy this year, with the S8 garnering both the top spot and our Editor’s Choice badge. If you haven’t picked one up yet, now may be the time. Best Buy is taking up to $160 off select Galaxy tablets.
Mesh Wi-Fi systems are all the rage these days. Unlike standard black box routers, which have a single access point, a mesh system combines two or more access points to create a bigger, stronger Wi-Fi network that can cover larger areas with fewer dead spots. This means you can do things like play games and stream movies from anywhere in the house, without fear of losing connection. Amazon claims its Eero 6+ mesh system can cover up to 4,500 square feet with fast and reliable gigabit speeds, and right now, you can get it for $190.
It's no secret that we're big fans of the new Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro. Both phones are refined in design and targeted camera upgrades help the Pixel 7 Pro truly stand out from the more reasonably-sized and reasonably-priced Pixel 7. Retailers seem to really like them a lot too, as they've been running promotions on both models from the preorder window through the official launch and up to now. Google Store is offering trade-in deals while Amazon is offering gift cards, so Best Buy decided to up the ante by offering both.
Chromebooks have evolved well beyond their budget-minded beginnings, and the category is now filled with capable, featured-packed top-notch Chromebooks and Chrome OS tablets. The Lenovo ThinkPad C13 a the perfect example, thanks to its touchscreen display, built-in stylus, and a bevy of port options. It’s perfect for anyone looking to take notes in school, work remotely, or watch their favorite streaming content. And right now, Lenovo has discounted it down to just $290.
