The MacBook Pro remains Apple’s top-of-the-line option for laptops with fast M1 processors. There is talk of new models with a rumored M1X update, but for now, if you’re looking for the best of the M1 in laptop form, it’s the late 2020 MacBook Pro. 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 is $ 150 on Amazon and Best Buy, which brings it down to $ 1,150 with 256GB of storage or $ 1,350 for 512GB. This is the second-best price ever on the market. Apple’s popular laptop.
We often praise its MacBook Air counterpart, which goes on sale more often and is still currently discounted to $ 850, but the MacBook Pro is a great upgrade for those looking for a little more performance with a better display. and brighter. You get the Touch Bar with the Pro model as well, a polarizing feature for some, but while it has that legacy from the previous generation Intel Macs, we’re thankfully well past the butterfly keyboard era – plus it has a appropriate Escape key.

In the world of Chromebooks, there are plenty of low-cost options out there, but nothing quite like the Lenovo Chromebook Duet. It’s by far our favorite budget pick in the entire Chromebook world for its value proposition, and it got even better with a new all-time low price of $ 199 at Best Buy. This exceeds the previous all-time low of an additional $ 50.
The Chromebook Duet offers an incredible amount of capability if you want a small machine for lightweight productivity on the go or at home, and if you appreciate a detachable keyboard form factor. Its replacement, the Chromebook Duet 5, is slated for release next month. However, with a higher starting price of $ 430, sales won’t be as good for a long time. Read our review.
Did you just get a new iPhone 13 or 13 Pro? Do you need chargers, magnetic or otherwise? Amazon offers a multitude of Anker charging solutions in its deal of the day up to 45% off. Its offerings include a magnetic loading mat similar to a MagSafe washer for $ 20; a 2-in-1 magnetic charging stand for an iPhone 12, 13, or wireless charging AirPods for $ 27; and even a 10,000mAh power bank that comes with an 18W USB-C charger for $ 30.
For recent iPhone users, you can buy a 20W USB-C charger ($ 12) and a wireless magnetic charger ($ 20) together for less than a MagSafe washer – without a charger – from Apple. The only thing to keep in mind if you go this route or go for the 2 in 1 mount is that the maximum charging output of the phone will be 7.5W and not the full 15W of the MagSafe of Apple.
Also available on Amazon’s Deal of the Day, up to 57% off the August Smart Lock Pro (third generation). It’s the slightly older smart lock model from August, which requires a plug-in Connect Hub, but you can get it for a new historic low price of $ 99 in silver or dark gray.
One of the useful features of Smart Lock Pro is that it works with your existing deadbolt, minimizing the amount of work required to improve the entrance to your home. There’s also an optional keypad set, reduced to $ 159 today, for access via code entry.
There’s a fall hardware event on Amazon about to take place, and with that could come a cavalcade of new products, which is why we might see such great deals on products like August Smart Lock Pro and Amazon’s first-generation Echo Show 5. The latter is the smallest Echo Show smart display released in 2019 and is now available at its best price: just $ 45 on Amazon and Target.
The Echo Show 5 is perfect as a bedside alarm clock, in the kitchen, or even as a music and media player on the bathroom counter, as the built-in camera can be blocked by a physical shutter. It’s a useful little smart display that can fit just about anywhere and is quite capable, thanks to its bright touchscreen and speakers. There is especially a lot to love about this new low price of $ 45. Read our review.
