I love my beefy gamer desktop, but as a writer that (used to) travel around for events and news, I also need a decent laptop to write stories up with. My Chromebook was acceptable for a while, but I’m starting to find its lack of features... well, lacking. But, with HP having its Memorial Day sale, I think I finally found a good replacement.

The HP ProBook 445R G6 Notebook PC isn’t an absolute powerhouse, but for a productivity laptop it gets the job done. A 500 GB hard drive means I’ll have enough room to download the applications and files I need, even if the notebook might load a bit slower due to the lack of a solid state drive. 4 GB memory is enough to run your browser and whatever other applications you’re using, too. Finally, it’s only $523, and it comes with free shipping and returns, in case it’s not quite up to snuff. It’s practically no-risk to try it!

Of course, there are plenty more options that are a part of HP’s sale, so make sure to give the website a look and see if there is anything to fit your needs! The sale ends on the 27th.

Thinking of adding a Microsoft Surface to your tablet collection but low on funds? Best Buy has 18 interest-free reasons why now’s the best time to seal the deal. For a limited time, the retailer is offering 18 month financing on Microsoft’s collection of new Surface devices priced $499 and up when you open up a My Best Buy Visa Platinum Account.

From now through December 25, you can choose from a variety of shiny new Surface devices, from the modestly-priced 8GB Surface Go 2 with 128GB of storage at $549 to the splurge-worthy 15" Surface Book 3 2-in-1 laptop at $3,399. Just visit the Best Buy store page and select the model you’re interested in purchasing.

This deal affords you the freedom to take home a powerful new Surface Go 2 or Surface Book 3 (the latest models in the Surface lineup) without having to pony up the entirety of that stimulus check right away. Most models are already well over $499, so you’ve got quite a bit of freedom when it comes to selecting the one that works best for you while still qualifying for the financing offer.

Our friends at Gizmodo called the Surface Go the “best cheap laptop” earlier in April 2020, praising its quality fit and finish for the price. Upgrading to the Surface Go 2 should net you the same type of quality product for a bit more dough.

Best Buy’s stipulations state that, in order to participate in the deal, you must of course continue making monthly payments on your purchase with your financing plan. Most importantly, you must pay the entire promotional purchase balance off by the end of the 18 months allotted. As long as you pay off your balance within the 18 months, you’ll be charged zero interest as part of the promotional period’s terms.

Summer’s almost here, and that means you’re probably going to go portable when it’s consistently nice enough outside to work. Treat yourself to a new Surface device to make working remotely just a tiny bit more bearable.

It’s never too late to start taking cyber security seriously, and give your data a little more protection. A good VPN will keep your connections secure while you’re connected to a network, which can come in handy when you’re somewhere less secure, like a coffee shop or library’s network. While you’ve probably got your eyes on lots of Memorial Day deals, it’s worth considering a VPN if you use public networks pretty frequently. For Memorial Day, NordVPN is offering three years of its VPN service for $126, saving you 70% off the plan’s original price. That might seem hefty, but you’ll be grateful when you don’t have to worry about compromising your data when you’re away from home.

Sony’s competitor to Apple’s AirPods Pro might not be as slim or sleek, but they’re super comfortable, sound great, and have excellent noise-canceling capabilities: “The digital noise canceling in this model is simply the best I’ve encountered in any truly wireless earbuds,” wrote Gizmodo’s Adam Clark Estes in his review last summer.

The Sony WF-1000XM3 Wireless Earbuds are $32 off the normal price right now, putting a wide enough gulf between them and Apple’s alternative to maybe make your decision a little easier.

Amazon has the lowest prices we’ve seen yet on the Pixel 3a family, which are affordable versions of Google’s flagship smartphone lineup. The base Pixel 3a with 64GB of storage is normally $400, but with today’s sale, it’s sitting at an incredibly low $279. It packs a 5.6-inch display If you need something bigger, the Pixel 3a XL (also 64GB) stretches the matter to six inches for $319, down from its usual $479.

These Pixel smartphones don’t have the biggest bark—they’re outfitted with Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 670 and 4GB of RAM for performance—but they do have quick access to the latest versions of a well-oiled Android, good battery life, and excellent low light performance thanks to a 12MP Night Sight camera.

Both these headphones use Apple’s patented H1 audio chip, the very same one you’ll find inside a pair of AirPods Pro. Paired with booming, bassy Beats drivers, you should be able to manage enjoyable sound from either pair.

If you need a new TV, you owe it to yourself to consider Hisense’s new Quantum Dot sets.

Weighted blankets seem great, but I have just one problem with them—it gets HOT at night. I sometimes overheat with just my regular comforter... thinking about an extra 20 lbs has me sweating just thinking about it. DubLabs understands the struggle, though, and their all-seasons weighted blanket is designed to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

How does DubLabs manage to do that? Well, it’s easier for them to explain.

Bamboo cooling side of the blanket for warm nights (summer)

Polyester side of the blanket for cooler nights (fall/spring)

Included micro-plush duvet cover for cold nights (winter)

So with the bamboo side, you can stay cool while also being hugged by a nice weighted blanket. And when it gets chilly again, you can throw the duvet cover on and be good to go!

From now until June 19th, you can get $60 off this items by using BLANKET60. If you’re on the fence, go ahead and grab it and join the weighted blanket revolution (?).

Sometimes ComiXology’s massive sales can be overwhelming, so let’s look at a smaller sale for a change! This weekend is the Marvel Must Have Sale, a collection of ten comics from recent Marvel arcs that are $1 a piece. You can grab everything in this sale for just $10!

The comics ComiXology thinks are must-haves come from three comic arcs:

  • Spider-Man: The Black Cat Strikes (1-3), part of the Gamerverse line... whatever that is
  • Star (1-3), who seems to be a foil for the extremely powerful Captain Marvel
  • Hawkeye: Freefall (1-4), which... I don’t know how this is different from a typical Hawkeye plot but it’s here

Of course, these aren’t the typical Marvel superheroes that tend to get a lot of focus... that’s why these are must-haves! Well, I guess everyone knows Spider-Man, but Black Cat isn’t really a common villain so it works out.

Rosetta Stone licenses are heavily discounted today for anyone up for the challenge, including a lifetime license for $200 (down from $300). You can also put up $96 for 12 months of unlimited access, and $144 for two years. (But let’s be real: you’ll probably need more than two years.)

You’re getting full access to learn more than 24 of the world’s most common and popular languages, including Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Greek, and even Hebrew. I can tell you from experience that the single most useful thing you can take on an international vacation is at least basic knowledge of the local language, so be sure to start practicing now for that post-quarantine trip you’ve had to put off.

This is a good time with all these skincare sales to assess your cabinet for what you need for summer and if you can get it on sale all the better. For the holiday the SkinStore is running a sitewide sale of 25% off with code MEMORIAL. This code works on everything, even bundles and clearance items.

So let’s grab a good sunscreen to start. It’s no secret if you follow me that I love French company La Roche-Posay and their sunscreen is perfection. I do tend to burn easily so I prefer a high SPF and basically live in it all summer. To take off a heavy sunscreen you’ll need a good oil cleanser followed by a foam cleanser. But if you do catch a little sun and need to put some moisture back in and cool it down. Aloe is still the best to do this and Tony Moly’s face masks are the way to go.

Why the hell does a water sprinkler have to be smart? I’ll tell you why: Because water is damn expensive, and if you have a big lawn, you’ll want to save as much of it as possible. Rachio’s R3e sprinkler has eight sprinkler zones, WiFi connectivity for remote control, and it supports voice control with Alexa. Amazon has it for $130 today.

Rachio uses a bundle of sensors to determine the best automatic watering schedules, including rain and wind detectors, saturation monitors, and more. It also takes into account your lawn type, plants, soil type, and how much sun your lawn gets on a daily basis. That means it’ll only water at the most optimal time without drowning your lawn, all of which should positively impact the water bill and eventually pay for itself.

Back when I worked at [redacted], I was tasked with reviewing a previous version of the keyboard pictured here, the $160, metal-plated and mechanical Roccat Vulcan 120 AIMO, designed to showcase the company’s impressive “Titan” switches and naturally concave keycaps. Fast forward two years and its successor, the Roccat Vulcan 121 AIMO, is down to $120 on Amazon and well worth the price if you ask me.

The main difference between this and the model I reviewed appears to be the availability of Titan Red switches, as opposed to the Browns that were customary before. Both versions are included in this discount, so pick up the Reds if you prefer a linear keystroke or grab the Browns if you’re looking for tactility. Either way, there’s something here for you, and once we’re back to work, your coworkers will appreciate the continued silence.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ | $120 | eBay

While AirPods Pro are on sale for $210 today, some of our readers have complained it’s still too high a price point for true wireless in-ear headphones. Enter the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, a pair of buds Caitlin McGarry called “the budget AirPod alternative you probably want” in her review on Gizmodo. With two-way dynamic sound drivers built and perfected by AKG, the audio quality is sharp, even if their IPX2 rating doesn’t guarantee sweat- and water-resistance.

Because they’re equipped with two outer mics and one internal one, call quality is crystal clear and the in-app equalizer settings help you find the exact sound you’re looking for when it comes to music. Available in three chic colors—black, white, and blue—at $120, you can’t beat the value of these subtle yet stylish earbuds. That said, if active noise cancellation is a must, you’ll be disappointed by the ambient sounds heard with your music cranked up. In that case, you’re better off sporting AirPods Pro.

Samsung worked with AKG and put two-way dynamic speakers inside the Galaxy Buds+ to improve the audio quality, which was the most common complaint about the company’s previous earbuds. The enhancements make a difference, though I did have to experiment with the in-app equalizer settings to fine-tune the sound. The out-of-the-box preset, Normal, compresses the range a bit and makes the bass sound like I put an after-market car stereo in my ears with a slightly tinny thud. The Dynamic setting helps the ‘buds handle bass much better, which I put to the test by blasting Cardi B’s bass-heavy Invasion of Privacy.

If during quarantine you’ve found it difficult to keep the pictures on social media fresh you’re not alone. Using the same places or angles where you have space or good light has made things a bit dull. SideDeal is giving you the chance to boost your selfie game with this ten-piece set for just $19.

If you’re a bit of a solo photo taker this is a great set. I personally have bought a few of these individually and I wished I had seen something like this first. I can absolutely say the remote for the shutter is worth it alone. The tripod is also essential if you do a bit of OOTD (that’s outfit of the day) shooting. But get creative and play around with the three lenses too. You’re getting a wide-angle, fisheye, and macro zoom lens in this pack so plenty to shoot in pursuit of the perfect picture.

Just because you’re not at work doesn’t mean your “colleagues”—AKA, your family—won’t eat that leftover meatloaf you were saving for lunch. In fact, a study that was completely made up on the spot by yours truly, but backed up by years of personal experience, suggests family is ten times more likely to fridge-swipe than a stranger. Keep yours where you work, and put all your edible valuables where only you can reach them. Daewoo is letting you do it with this Retro Red 4.4 cubic feet mini fridge, which is $301 following a 25% discount.

Daewoo has other colors of this roomy unit on sale for a slightly-more-exciting $300, including White, City Blue, and Cream Beige. There’s also Mint for $350, 15% off.
