Things are looking up if you were thinking of getting a new 4K TV. The price of an OLED has dropped dramatically in recent years, with new standouts like LG’s latest-gen C2 and A2 recently selling for as low as $800 and $600, respectively. However, if you’re looking for a larger model in that price range that still manages to impress, Hisense 65-inch QLED U8H is for sale on amazon for just $799 ($101 off), $40 less than the price we saw during Prime Day just over a week ago.
On the hardware front, Hisense’s Mini LED TV packs together Google TV and a host of great specs. The mid-tier option offers great colors and maximum brightness levels, making it a great choice for brighter homes, along with several gamer-friendly features, most notably two HDMI 2.1 inputs, low input lag, and support for a 120Hz refresh rate. It also supports a litany of other things, including AirPlay 2, Dolby Vision, and Apple’s HDR10, rounding out a spec sheet that’s much better than it should be for the price.
A new TV is great and all, but if you’re looking to outfit your existing TV with some new tricks, there are certainly cheaper ways to go about it. Right now, for example, Amazon, Aimand Best Buy everyone is selling the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $29.99 ($25 off), which is one of the lowest prices we’ve seen on a 4K streaming stick to date.
The Fire Stick 4K Max offers a few improvements over the standard Fire Stick 4K, some of which make it a bit more future-proof. Navigating the interface is noticeably faster, for example, and it features Wi-Fi 6 to improve wireless streaming performance. The software also takes a content-push approach much like a Chromecast, which is much nicer to navigate than a wall of apps (assuming you can look past Amazon’s borderline aggressive ads). The 4K streamer even comes with the latest Alexa Voice Remote, allowing you to dim the lights and make ultra-specific voice commands that you simply can’t do with other streaming devices.
Apple’s new M2-equipped MacBook Air remains our laptop of choice for most people, though most people can probably get by just as easily with MacBook Air M1 starting in 2020. And right now, that next-generation model is matching its all-time low in Amazon and Best Buywhere you can pick it up with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage for $749.99 ($250 off).
When it comes down to it, few laptops offer as much for your money as the entry-level Air, even now. Despite having the outdated wedge-shaped design, it still features the exceptional build quality Apple is known for, as well as an excellent scissor-switch keyboard, a good display, and three color options (silver, gold, and space gray). More importantly, it continues to offer reliable performance with the help of Apple’s first-generation M1 chip, which should provide plenty of power if all you need is a daily driver that can handle everyday tasks at school or work.
