The iPad Air with M1 processor and expanded 256GB storage is $70 off

It’s officially Memorial Day Weekend. Time to get the grill going, toss some drinks in the cooler, and saddle up for some hot deals. We’ve been covering Memorial Day deals and discounts all week, and we’ve got some new ones for you Saturday.

first, Apple’s latest iPad Air with 256GB expanded storage has dropped to $679 at Amazon. This $70 discount is the best price in over a month for this configuration. If you don’t feel like you need the extra storage, the 64GB model costs $569.99 (about $30 off) at Amazon and walmart† Although the 256 GB ensures that you will not run out of space too quickly.

This latest-generation iPad Air is very similar to the previous 2020 model, but has received a significant performance boost by borrowing the same M1 processor from the iPad Pro models and entry-level MacBooks. The Air is fast, has a long battery life and the 10.9-inch screen looks great. While it shares the same CPU as the more expensive iPad Pro, it uses Touch ID built into the side button instead of Face ID and lacks ProMotion for smoother scrolling. However, this discount helps further separate the 256GB Air from the base 128GB iPad Pro, which normally costs $799, making it the better value for most people. Read our review


2022 iPad Air (Wi-Fi)

The latest iPad Air retains the iPad Pro-esque redesign of the 2020 model, but ditches the A14 Bionic processor in favor of Apple’s lightning-fast M1 chip. It also comes in one of five colors and features a 12MP front-facing camera with support for Apple’s Center Stage feature.

Miraculously, you have multiple options if you want to buy an Xbox Series X console now. You can get one at Costco or direct from Microsoft, or if you’re lucky, there may be one at your local Best Buy – but those aren’t deals. The deal du jour in the Xbox family right now is that: Antonline offers a free additional controller of your choice with the purchase of an Xbox Series S for the price of $299.99† That’s the regular retail price of the small console, and you get an additional gamepad worth up to $69.99 for free.

The Xbox Series S is a great little console if you don’t mind using a digital box with 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution. Sure, it’s a little skimpy on storage, with 512GB built in, but it’s perfect for Xbox Game Pass and game streaming. Plus, with this deal you can choose from blackwhiteredblueand yellow green controllers — even the translucent smoked-black special edition 20th anniversary (which is the right choice by the way). This deal runs through June 7 or until sold out. Read our review


Xbox Series S with free extra controller

The Xbox Series S is smaller than the 4K-compatible Xbox Series X, but it can still handle the same digital games, albeit at a resolution of 2560 x 1440 QHD. Antonline’s offer of the console with a free additional controller saves $59.99 to $69.99, depending on the gamepad chosen.

If you don’t want to wait until July for Google’s upcoming Pixel 6A and you’re a T-Mobile or Sprint customer, you can Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro for $150 off Best Buy with an activation. This deal lowers the price of the Pixel 6 up to $459.99 – same as the more budget-oriented 6A – and the Pixel 6 Pro now costs $749.99† Both deals require activation on T-Mobile or Sprint, but you choose to pay them in advance or in monthly installments.

While the Pixel 6 siblings have had some troubled waters with software updates, they still have some of the best cameras in a smartphone — and arguably some of the best Android phones out there. The Pixel 6A will borrow the Google Tensor CPU when it comes out in the summer, but the upgraded cameras will remain exclusive to the premium Pixels. Read our review


Google Pixel 6

The Google Pixel 6 is the new base model of Google’s latest flagship. It features the Google Tensor CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a rear camera with both 50 megapixels for the main wide-angle and 12 megapixels for the ultra-wide angle.

The Lenovo Chromebook Duet has maintained its status as one of our favorite budget Chromebooks, although a newer model came out in late 2021 with a higher price tag that involved some compromises. This new model is the Chromebook Duet 5, which got a little more luxurious with a 13.3-inch OLED touchscreen and a new price of about $500. The screen is great, the keyboard attachment is again very good and the battery lasts a long time. . But it’s a bit of a different game when it’s $200 more than its predecessor.

Now you can use the Lenovo Chromebook Duet 5 for a much more respectable $379 at Best Buy. This $120 discount for the model with 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD makes it much easier to overlook some of its flaws, such as the lack of biometric authentication and no included pen. Money saved always looks better, am I right? Read our review
