Our collection of deals today proves that Mondays don’t have to be all bad. Our major deal on the 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 4, for example, brings this laptop down to its lowest price yet on Amazon. Normally, this configuration would cost $1,299.99, but it’s currently on sale for $949.99. This discount currently applies to black, silver, and beige colors, but the blue model is also on sale for $969.99.
This configuration includes an 11th generation Intel Core i5 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The 13.5-inch touchscreen has a maximum resolution of 2256 x 1504 and is powered by the integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU. The 8GB of RAM is a bit paltry by modern standards, but the 512GB of storage can still be expanded thanks to the laptop’s microSD card slot. The Surface Laptop 4 also features a single USB-A port for peripherals and a Thunderbolt-compatible USB-C port if you want to dock your laptop with an external monitor. Overall, this laptop has specs that allow it to hold it against the likes of the MacBook Air and Dell XPS 13 but at a lower price. Read our review.
If you need a webcam that shows off your good side a bit and tracks your face during Zoom meetings, the Logitech StreamCam is currently on sale for $79.99 ($90) at GameStop. StreamCam is still one of the best webcams we tested, thanks to its ability to capture 60fps footage at 1080p. The webcam has a field of view of 78 degrees as well, and it can perform autofocus and auto exposure with the help of capture software from Logitech. It connects to your device via USB-C, however — an aspect that improves image quality but also requires you to purchase an adapter if your computer lacks a USB-C port.
You can have it in any color as long as it is green. The 41mm GPS-equipped Apple Watch Series 7 is currently discounted in green to just $313.95 (US$85), its lowest price yet, on Amazon. In addition to offering a larger, more flexible watch face than the Series 6, the Series 7 also has support for the onscreen keyboard that debuted in WatchOS 8 for typing quick text responses without having to squash your phone. The 7 Series still retains some of the pain points of its predecessor, such as the lack of Qi charging and a battery life that can only last for a day. While we don’t consider frequent upgrades a good enough reason to give up on your Series 6, you still think the Series 7 is the best smartwatch for Apple users. Read our review.
Amazon and Walmart both cut $50 off the regular price of a standard iPad in a 256GB configuration, bringing the $479 tablet down to $429. Although it’s only a matter of time before Apple upgrades the entry-level tablet with an M1 CPU, the current model’s A13 Bionic processor still provides enough power to run most apps. The 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone still looks amazing too, thanks to its ability to dynamically adjust the display’s color temperature, but there are some recent compromises that are unfortunately missing here. The tablet still supports charging only via the Lightning connector, not USB-C, and can only work with the first generation Apple Pencil. Other than these two caveats, this tablet is still solid for anyone who lives in the Apple ecosystem.
All Amazon Fire tablets are currently for sale, including the latest generation models and the latest Fire HD 10 Plus. While we’ve certainly seen better prices, some of these models are just $5 shy of their lowest price ever.
For example, the ad-supported 32GB Fire HD 8 is discounted from $89.99 to $49.99, making it just $5 more than its lowest price yet. The 8-inch tablet features a 1280 x 800 resolution, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage, which can be expanded by 1TB via a microSD card. The 2.0GHz quad-core processor won’t allow for heavy lifting when it comes to productivity, but it fits the bill well if you need a tablet for media consumption or light gaming.
You can also find the ad-supported Fire HD 10 32GB model on sale for $99.99 ($50 off). It’s certainly not the lowest price we’ve seen for a 10-inch tablet, but it still matches its best price since December. The Fire HD 10’s larger screen is complemented by the highest resolution available on a Fire tablet, yet still maintains a battery life of up to 12 hours. Some of the other upgrades on the HD 8 include a 2.0GHz octa-core CPU and 3GB of RAM. Read our review.
It’s also worth noting that all of these tablets also qualify for a 20 percent discount from Amazon when you trade in an eligible device. This knocks a significant amount off the final price and also provides you with an Amazon Gift Card equal to the assessed value of your device. While there’s nothing stopping you from trading in your old Fire Tablet, Amazon also accepts a variety of devices from Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft. You can even trade in old charting calculators if you are about to graduate.
The gym-centric Jabra Elite 7 Pro reboot right now on Amazon and Best Buy has been slashed to $149.99 ($30 off), which is nearly the best price we’ve seen in the past four months on premium true wireless earbuds. The main differences between these earbuds and the Elite 7 Pro are their rubber coating, which gives them a grip fit and provides them with IPX7 sweat and water resistance. On top of that, the 7 Active offers active noise cancellation and the same sound quality as the Pro model, plus up to eight hours of battery life between charges.
