Our collection of today’s deals proves that Mondays don’t have to be all bad. Our flagship deal on the 13.5-inch Microsoft Surface Laptop 4, for example, brings the 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 the black, silver, and beige colorways, but the blue model is also on sale for $969.99.
This configuration features an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. The 13.5-inch touchscreen offers a maximum resolution of 2256 x 1504 and is powered by an 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 through the laptop’s microSD card slot. The Surface Laptop 4 also has a single USB-A port for peripherals and a Thunderbolt-compatible USB-C port if you want to connect the laptop to an external display. Overall, this laptop has specs that allow it to hold its own 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 your good side a little more and follows your face during Zoom meetings, the Logitech StreamCam is currently on sale for $79.99 ($90 off) at GameStop. The StreamCam is still one of the best webcams we’ve tested, thanks to its ability to capture footage at 60 frames per second in 1080p resolution. The webcam also has a 78-degree field of view and can autofocus and auto-exposure using Logitech’s capture software. However, it connects to your device via USB-C – a facet that improves image quality but also requires you to buy an adapter if your computer doesn’t have a USB-C port.
You can have it in any color, as long as it’s green. The 41mm GPS-equipped Apple Watch Series 7 is currently discounted in the green colorway at just $313.95 ($85 off), its lowest price yet, at Amazon. In addition to providing a larger and tougher watch face than Series 6, Series 7 also features on-screen keyboard support that debuted in WatchOS 8 for typing quick text responses without have to pull out your phone. The Series 7 retains some of its predecessor’s weak points, however, such as the lack of Qi charging and battery life that can only last a single day. While we don’t see iterative upgrades as reason enough to ditch your Series 6, we still think Series 7 is the best smartwatch for Apple users. Read our review.
Amazon and Walmart have both slashed $50 off the regular price of the standard iPad in the 256GB configuration, bringing the tablet down from $479 to $429. Although it’s only a matter of time before Apple upgrades the entry-level tablet with an M1 processor, the A13 Bionic processor present in the current model still provides more than enough power to run most apps. The 10.2-inch Retina display with True Tone still looks amazing, thanks to its ability to dynamically adjust the screen’s color temperature, but there are some modern concessions that are sadly missing here. The tablet still only supports charging via a Lightning connector, not USB-C, and it can only work with the first-generation Apple Pencil. Beyond those two caveats, however, this is still a solid tablet for anyone living in the Apple ecosystem.
All of Amazon’s Fire tablets are currently on 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 only $5 less than their all-time low.
The ad-supported 32GB Fire HD 8, for example, is marked down from $89.99 to $49.99, making it just $5 more than its lowest price yet. The 8-inch tablet offers 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 lift much weight when it comes to productivity, but it’s fine if you need a tablet for media consumption or light gaming.
You can also find the ad-supported 32GB Fire HD 10 model on sale for $99.99 ($50 off). It’s certainly not the lowest price we’ve seen for the 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 display available on a Fire tablet, while maintaining up to 12 hours of battery life. Some other upgrades over the HD 8 include a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor and 3 GB of RAM. Read our review.
It’s also worth mentioning that all of these tablets are also eligible for Amazon’s 20% rebate when you trade in an eligible device. This significantly reduces the final price and also gives you an Amazon gift card equal to the appraised value of your device. While there’s nothing stopping you from trading in an older Fire tablet, Amazon also accepts a variety of devices from Apple, Samsung, and Microsoft. You can even trade in old graphing calculators if you’re a future graduate.
The gym-centric reboot of the Jabra Elite 7 Pro is currently discounted at Amazon and Best Buy for $149.99 ($30 off), nearly the best price we’ve seen in the last four months on excellent true wireless headphones. The main differences between these headphones and the Elite 7 Pro are their rubberized coating, which gives them a snug fit and provides them with IPX7 sweat and water resistance. Beyond that, however, 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.
