Black Friday has passed, but there are still plenty of great deals in place. Amazon and Best Buy are still offering the second-gen Echo Show 5 for $ 44.99, the lowest price we’ve seen for this smart device. And while it’s not quite the same price as what we saw on Cyber Monday, the Echo Show 8 is also available for a hefty $ 40 discount, bringing the price of this smart display at just $ 94.99. Both of these second-generation smart displays are similar in form and function, with the Echo Show 8 having a slightly larger display and a more powerful 13MP camera.
Dan Seifert reviewed both the Echo Show 5 and Show 8 when they launched last summer. He concluded that the Echo Show 5 remains a solid option, although the iterative updates weren’t that impressive. However, he concluded that the second-generation Echo Show 8 is still the best Alexa smart display, despite spotty video calling software.
The latest MacBook Air with the much-vaunted M1 CPU is still available for $ 899.99 on Amazon and Best Buy. While it’s not quite the same deal we saw on Black Friday, $ 100 off for a machine of this caliber is no laughing matter. This 13-inch laptop has 8GB of RAM and a storage capacity of 256GB, but the 512GB version is also available for $ 1,100, which is $ 150 less than the regular price. In our review, Dieter Bohn mentioned the excellent battery life and performance of this centerpiece of Apple hardware, although its webcam left something to be desired.
The Beats Studio 3 are still available at their lowest price from Best Buy. Currently at $ 169.99, this sale cuts the original MSRP by almost $ 200. This price is only available for black and gray colourways, but given that black goes with everything, that shouldn’t be a big deal. These foldable on-ear headphones are designed for Apple users, with an Apple W1 chip for seamless Bluetooth connectivity and power efficiency. Rechargeable via micro-USB, the Studio 3 can last up to 22 hours on a single charge and has built-in noise cancellation. Read our review.
The Logitech G502 Lightspeed is available on Amazon and Best Buy, corresponding to its lowest price of $ 99.99. This massive mouse hit that price originally in early November and has fluctuated for a while, but sits comfortably at its lowest price on record. This iteration of the G502 features the Hero 25k DPI sensor, six programmable buttons, inserts for adjustable weight, and is compatible with Logitech’s Powerplay wireless charging system. The G502 has a solid battery life, capable of lasting up to 60 hours on a single charge. But, if you invest in the Powerplay Mouse Pad, you can keep the G502 filled indefinitely without ever having to worry about battery life again.
Corsair’s massive K95 RGB Platinum keyboard is currently available at Best Buy and Amazon for a slightly better price than what is available on Black Friday. Up to just $ 145.99, that price takes $ 54 off the regular MSRP and is remarkable value for this versatile full-size keyboard. The K95 Platinum was Corsair’s flagship model until the K100 was released, but remains a stunning entry into this line of gaming keyboards. Equipped with Cherry MX Silver switches, dedicated macro and media playback keys, the K95 is still one of Corsair’s best keyboards to date. The XT builds on the original heritage of the K95 by adding PBT keys that resist wear and add a lightly textured finish. Overall, this is a great gaming keyboard to have in your arsenal.
