Our computer writer Tony Polanco just secured the Black Friday deal you’ve been waiting for this week, and you still have time to get the same savings. The Samsung 980 Pro 2TB SSD with heatsink is available on Amazon for $189 (opens in new tab). That’s a massive drop from its full price of $399 and its lowest price ever.
Considering the PS5 only comes with a relatively small 825GB hard drive (and only 667GB of that is usable), expanding your storage space with one of the best PS5 internal SSDs is a very smart move. The Samsung 980 Pro meets all of Sony’s benchmarks for a PS5 SSD, and this model comes with a heatsink pre-installed, so you can plug it straight into your console without any hassles. If you enjoy switching between multiple PS5 games at the same time, this is a must-have accessory.
You don’t have to spend a lot to get some of the best Black Friday deals on Amazon. Take this discount on our top pick for the best streaming stick, for example, the Roku Streaming Stick 4K, which is available on Amazon for $24 (opens in new tab)that’s a savings of 50% and the lowest price ever.
Adding long-awaited Dolby Vision support, this small but powerful streaming stick strikes the perfect balance between price and performance. You get access to the best streaming services and you can watch your favorite movies and series in full 4K resolution. We also love the smooth navigation on the Roku Streaming Stick 4K and thankfully the interface isn’t cluttered with ads.
This gadget is ideal for turning any television into a Smart TV, but thanks to its small size it is also ideal for traveling. Throw it in your pocket and you can stream even if you’re staying in a hotel or Airbnb. At just $24, it’s a seriously worthy purchase.
Black Friday is a great time to buy a gaming laptop, especially from Razer. Given that the brand makes the “MacBooks of gaming,” their devices are quite expensive. But Amazon is usually one of the first retailers to lower the price of such premium machines, especially those with slightly older specs.
And this one caught my eye: the Razer Blade 14 has been priced down a massive $800. While it might not feature the very latest AMD processor, the chip is more than powerful enough, and it comes with the mighty Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. In short, despite being a 14-inch laptop, this one will little Razer munch on latest games. It probably won’t stay in stock for that long, so I think this is a deal worth jumping on.
Good news, Pixal fans! Amazon has the new Google Pixel Watch on sale for $299. The watch debuted at the last Google event in October. In our Google Pixel Watch review, we said that the good looks, smart software, and Fitbit-based fitness tracking capabilities make it a strong first-gen device. If you have an Android phone or aren’t a fan of the Apple Watch, this is a good choice.
Who’s in the market for a crazy cheap tablet? Amazon’s new 2022 Fire 7 tablet is on sale now at the lowest price ever. In our Amazon Fire 7 2022 review, we called it a super affordable tablet for streaming videos while traveling or commuting. However, there is one major caveat. As you can imagine, performance isn’t everything. At times we found it borderline sluggish. Also, the 7-inch, 1024 x 600 resolution screen isn’t as sharp or bright as we’d like. As far as budget tablets go, however, this is about as cheap as it gets, especially since it’s just hit its lowest price ever. It could be a great stocking stuffer or a secondary tablet.
When it comes to Apple gear, I’ve delved deep into the Apple ecosystem. I’m typing this on my 5K iMac while wearing my Apple Watch 8 and while listening to Apple Music. (With my iPhone 13 Pro by my side). Speaking of Apple. Here are some of my favorite Apple deals you can get right now. That said – the only item not currently for sale that I hope will go on sale soon is the iMac M1. Offers for this all-in-one are VERY rare. I’ll report if I see a notable Black Friday deal.
It wouldn’t be an Amazon Black Friday Sale without some big discounts on Amazon’s hardware. And that’s exactly what we have here. The e-comm giant is slashing its Alexa-powered devices by up to 70%. That includes Echo devices starting at $14 (opens in new tab)Fire Tablets from $39 (opens in new tab)Doorbells from $39 (opens in new tab)and Blink Security Cams starting at $29 (opens in new tab). Amazon will announce a new set of deals on Thursday. So if you don’t see the device you want on sale now, it could go on sale later this week.
Let’s start with a deal on our best laptop. The MacBook Air M2 is $1,049 on Amazon (opens in new tab) now a $150 discount and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this MacBook.
If you’re looking for a laptop with super-fast performance, impressive battery life, and a beautiful screen, the MacBook Air M2 is the device you want. The only downsides to this laptop are the notch on the screen and the lack of support for additional monitors.
