If you’re looking for a Chromebook that surpasses many other models in build quality, features, and performance, you should check out Best Buy’s deal on the Acer Chromebook Spin 713. It normally costs $629 to get the model with a respectable Intel Core i5. 10210U processor, 8 GB RAM and a 128 GB SSD, but today it’s $200 off that price. It’s yours for $429. At this price, the Spin 713 is in a league of its own, with a convenient 2-in-1 design, a 2K resolution display with the ideal 3:2 aspect ratio, and long battery life. Read our review.
Acer recently launched a 2021 version of the Spin 713 and it features an improved 11th Gen Intel processor and Thunderbolt 4 support, but my colleague Monica Chin found that the battery life was slightly worse than the model being discounted today.
In case you didn’t know, Oculus re-released its Quest 2 headset this week with double the amount of storage (128 GB compared to 64 GB earlier) in the base configuration for the same price of $299. For people who already have the Quest 2 owning it is the opposite of a deal. It’s treason. But hey, if you’ve put off buying one until now, your patience will be greatly rewarded.
Whether you live in an area where the air quality isn’t at its best right now, or you have year-round allergies, Coway’s Mighty Air Purifier may be what you need to get some relief. This model is cheaper than usual at Walmart and costs $190 instead of about $230, plus it comes with a replacement filter pack, which is a nice bonus. Bee Amazon, it currently costs $200 and does not include an extra set of filters.
