While Apple’s latest 14- and 16-inch MacBooks are the obvious choice for power users, the 13-inch model is still worth considering if your budget isn’t that high. The model is slightly more capable than the MacBook Air. (Read our guide to choosing the right MacBook.) This deal gives you big storage space for the price of the entry-level model. deal also available B&H Photos But ends at midnight on 15 January.
The 13-inch AMD-based Surface Laptop 4 is my favorite configuration out of many Surface Laptop 4s (see our Surface Buying guide for more details). This deal gets you 8 gigabytes of RAM and 128-gigabyte SSD. Last November and December it was $700, but it’s still a pretty solid discount.
We really like Sabrent’s Rocket Nano SSD. It’s small and very fast for everything from backing up to storing large video files. It heats up under heavy loads – like editing videos straight from the drive – and it’s sometimes slow to show up in Windows 10 (I didn’t have this problem with Windows 11), but with on-the-go backups. It’s hard to beat at this price, for transferring data, and saving lives on the road. The 1-TB model is also on sale, See our best portable storage drives guide for other options.
It’s a budget internal SSD, which means it’s not very fast and isn’t the best choice for gamers or video editors, but it’s still a solid upgrade if you’re short on space. You install it directly on the motherboard of your desktop PC.
This Samsung Evo is a bit brighter than the more common green one (which is also often on sale). The extra speed will make your phone a bit faster at recovering files, but it’s not fast enough for a digital camera (see below for a great camera storage card).
Our favorite full-frame video solution is currently on sale for its lowest price ever (the same price it dropped during Black Friday in 2021). For more on why we love the Lumix S5 so much, check out our guide to the best mirrorless cameras.
GoPro has been running the deal since November, but the company recently added its new enduro battery to sweeten the pot. I’ve been testing Enduro for a few weeks now, and while the extra run time still depends on what kind of video you’re shooting, I can now run about 35 to 40 minutes of 5K video off an Enduro battery. I can get , The deal includes a 1-year GoPro subscription, so if you don’t want it beyond the free year, be sure to set a reminder to cancel it.
This is the best SD card I have used in a digital camera. There are some out there that are a bit faster, but I’ve never had a problem with this lexer, and it’s proven to be pretty reliable. I don’t want to confuse it, but I have two of these that are about six years old and still work like new.
BoostIQ is an affordable, powerful robot vacuum. It’s a few years old and doesn’t have the same app as the new model, but it still gets the job done. It’s small, uses bumper technology to do cleaning around your house, and has pretty decent battery life. This is a great entry into the robot vacuum world.
If you’re in need of a new mattress, this is one of our favorites for fans of firmer styles. It’s a hybrid, so it has a combination of cooling gel foam, high-density foam, and individually wrapped coils, and you might like it if you deal with some type of back pain. Read more about it in our Best Mattress guide. We also rounded up other home and bedding deals here earlier this week.
If you love a good cup of coffee that’s ready as soon as you wake up, this Cuisinart fits the bill. I had a very similar model and loved the ability to set the exact temperature for making my coffee.
I’ve tested several Nutribullets now, though not this one, and found them to be solid blenders capable of handling anything from your basic smoothies to more challenging things like homemade nut butters. If you need a blender and don’t want to spend a fortune, this deal fits the bill.
Wired Loves the Staff The Witcher 3, One of us even calls it the best game of the decade. So go ahead, toss a coin to your Witcher.
Dive into the world of user-created Mario with this deal on the game we called “the one-stop shop for completely ruined by Mario levels.”
It’s been out for a while, but like most Nintendo games, it doesn’t see discounts often. you get something classic donkey Kong Get in action here, but it’s also for people who love sidescrollers.
This Assassin’s Creed game is often on sale, but that price makes it a steal. It’s long-winded with a sinister story, but raiding Saxon villages as Vikings in the Dark Ages makes up for it. This is also a great game to watch.
