Need a sleek 15-inch laptop that’s powerful but won’t break down? Today, the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 is available for a new low. Amazon is currently selling the laptop with an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 8GB RAM and a 512GB SSD for $1,288.99 instead of $1,499.99. In her review, The Verges Monica Chin praised the device for being such a vast improvement over its predecessor, the aptly named Surface Laptop 3. She was also impressed with the laptop’s excellent battery life, lightweight build, and tall 3:2 screen. Although it was released in April 2021, it remains a good buy if you’re looking for an efficient Windows machine and don’t mind the obvious lack of ports.
While slightly more expensive, Best Buy is also offering a $200 discount, selling the same configuration for $1,299.99.
Like many TVs leading up to Super Bowl Sunday, the 55-inch version of Samsung’s decor-meets-tech Frame TV has returned to its Black Friday price point. Regularly, several retailers — including BuyDig, B&H Photo, Samsung, and Best Buy — sell $1,497.99 for around $998, which is also the lowest price to date. That’s a $500 saving on a TV that displays artwork when the sensors detect someone’s in the room, but can easily turn into a smart 4K TV if needed. As well as a 120Hz refresh rate, the TV also comes with support for Amazon’s Alexa for voice commands, has four HDMI ports, and the Tizen smart platform gives you access to most major streaming services without the need for a dedicated streaming device.
Other configurations are also available for purchase. For example, the 65-inch sells for about $1,498 at BuyDig, Amazon, B&H Photo, Best Buy and Samsung, which is $2 less than the all-time low we saw during Black Friday. Best Buy also takes $90 off the Facebook Portal TV with your purchase, up to $300 off select soundbars, and offers new subscribers a month of Philo for $5 with every purchase.
The latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro is shifting from TVs to iPads and can be picked up at Micro Center in both silver and space gray for $899.99, a new low. That’s a $200 discount off the original price, and even lower than the price we saw on the 128GB, Wi-Fi-ready model on Black Friday. Equipped with the M1 processor, the 2021 iPad Pro is lightning fast and delivers excellent performance. As we noted in our review, the 12.9-inch model also comes with an impressive Mini LED panel, which allows the display to achieve deep black levels, high brightness and a high contrast ratio.
If you don’t live near a Micro Center store, the good news is that Amazon and Walmart also discount the same setup, albeit not as heavily. The same iPad Pro configuration is $999 at Amazon, a $100 discount that matches the Black Friday price. Walmart offers the same discount.
If you want something a little cheaper, the iPad Air 2020, which we currently consider the best tablet for most people, is also still on sale at the best price yet. Normally $599.99, the 64GB Wi-Fi model is currently available from Best Buy for $499.99. Read our review.
We have excellent news for PlayStation owners: Sony is currently discounting over 400 PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 digital titles during the “Critics’ Choice” sale, which runs until February 16. For example, right now you can get 40 percent off the standard version of death loop for the PS5, which retails for $35.99 instead of $59.99. The standard PS4 and PS5 versions of Far Cry 6 are also 40 percent off and on sale for the same price.
Other highlights include the standard PS4 version of Call of Duty Vanguard for $38.99 (normally $59.99) and the PS4 and PS5 versions of Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cutwhich retail for $49.69 instead of $69.99.
If you’ve never owned an Amazon Echo, you can get a third-generation Echo Dot for just $4.99 when you sign up for a month of Amazon Music Unlimited, which costs $9.99, with the auto-renewal setting turned on. On its own, the last-gen Echo Dot retails for $39.99, while an individual subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited costs $9.99 per month, so you’re getting $14.98 for the bundle instead of $49.98. Please note that the Amazon Music Unlimited subscription will automatically renew after an introductory month and existing Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers will not be able to take advantage of the deal. You can read the terms and conditions of the deal here.
The price gets a little better for Amazon Prime subscribers who haven’t bought an Echo speaker before. Signing up for an individual plan costs $7.99 instead of $9.99, bringing the total price of this bundle down to $12.98.
Although it was an older model, we gave the third-generation Echo Dot an excellent 9/10 rating when we reviewed it in 2018, praising how much better the sound quality was than its predecessor. It also supports Amazon’s Alexa, which lets you play 70 million songs with Music Unlimited, and gives you a way to control your smart home gadgets hands-free. It doesn’t sound as good as the fourth-generation model, of course, but the puck-like design is much more versatile.
