We’ve been in love with the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 ever since we first laid eyes on its glossy red exterior. It has an excellent 13.3″ QLED touchscreen display that makes it easy to switch between using it as a tablet or laptop while surfing the web, getting some work done or playing your favorite Android game. It comes with 4GB of memory, 64GB of storage, and an Intel Celeron processor – all of which is enough for a reliable Chromebook experience.

For those who need more than a Chromebook, Samsung’s Galaxy Book Pro is on sale and it’s a steal. For $999, you get a 15.6-inch AMOLED display, an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and a 1TB SSD for storage. Samsung’s S Pen is included in the case, allowing you to write notes or sketch your latest ideas right on the screen. As an added bonus, the Galaxy Book Pro comes with Windows 11 Home preinstalled so you don’t have to fiddle with the update out of the box.

The Razer Blade 15 is an excellent laptop designed specifically for gamers. It has a 15.6-inch 4K OLED display powered by an Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, and a GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card that will play your favorite titles at 60fps. What makes the Blade 15 so attractive is that it combines power and portability, giving you a laptop for work, school and play.

Microsoft’s Surface Go 2 has been updated and replaced by the Go 3, but at $299, it’s a powerful two-in-one device perfect for young kids or students. You actually get a 10.5-inch tablet, but you can buy the Type Cover separately for $99 — bringing the netbook-like device total to its original asking price of $399. Not a bad deal for someone who needs a mobile but capable device.

Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup powered by Intel is seeing its share of discounts this holiday season. For example, this model is $500 off its usual price of $1,799.

The Samsung Smart TV Tizen platform powers your favorite shows without the need for a set-top box, and if you’re so inclined, you can even use Alexa or Google Assistant directly through the TV itself.

For example, AT&T offers up to $1,100 when you trade in your existing phone and sign up for an unlimited plan.

If you have a Google Pixel, the Pixel Buds A-Series is an excellent and even better option at just $79.99. These earbuds fit snugly to your ear and don’t protrude as much as other earbuds.

Sony’s WF-1000XM4 headphones aren’t cheap, but some of the best portable audio equipment you can buy. Reduced to $248, these earbuds excel with a mix that you can customize in real time thanks to the equalizer and offer the best active noise cancellation we’ve seen on any earbuds we’ve tested.

Like the Sony earbuds above, the WH-1000XM4 headphones are our top pick for noise canceling, over-ear headphones. With multiple built-in microphones and a processor, they have the unique ability to block out a lot of sounds. Even better, it lasts for about 30 hours with noise cancellation turned on.
