Apple’s 11-inch iPad Pro with M1 processor is $50 off at Amazon

Ladies and gentlemen, once again, it’s the weekend – now with an extra hour of sunshine, whether you like it or not. On the deals front, Amazon is currently offering the 11-inch iPad Pro in its 128GB Wi-Fi configuration for $749. That’s $50 off the 2021 tablet’s regular asking price of $799, which matches the price of the 2022 10.9-inch iPad Air with 256GB of storage.

The iPad Air may be the new darling of Apple’s tablet lineup, but the iPad Pro still has a few extra features to consider, as they’re the same price today. First, it has a 120Hz refresh rate screen for smoother scrolling and gaming, Face ID for easier unlocking (the Air uses Touch ID), and a quad-speaker audio setup for more powerful sound when gorging. However, the Pro and Air models feature Apple’s M1 processor, so they should be just as fast.

Which is best to go with? Well, it’s a topic that was heavily debated in the latest episode of The Vergecastand while you probably can’t go wrong with either tablet, it’s nice to save some cash in the process (the iPad Pro is the all-around best choice). Read our 2021 iPad Pro review.

Ring of Elden is still – without a doubt – the hottest game right now, having sold over 12 million copies and sparking discussions for an entire franchise in and out of gaming. While the challenging dark-fantasy RPG has seen initially slight discounts on Steam ahead of its release, console players who have an Xbox One or Series X/S have been out of luck, until today.

Eneba currently offers the digital version of Ring of Elden for $46.49 when you use promo code XboxRings at the register. This nearly 25% discount is the best price we’ve seen on FromSoftware’s open-world hit, but it’s only valid until 6 a.m. ET on Monday, March 21. So if you feel like seeing what it’s all about, now’s a great chance to get on your ghostly mount and jump on it. Read our review.

Going from gaming to smart home, Google’s Nest Audio offers excellent value for money. The smart speaker is relatively compact, and its five color options allow it to easily match most home decors. More importantly, the Nest Audio delivers excellent sound quality for a speaker of its size and price, which is typically $99.99 a pop.

That price is almost as good as it is right now, not least because Google is selling a two-speaker pack for $129. This drops the price to $64.50 each. That puts the Nest Audio very close to its all-time low price of $59.99, letting you affordably outfit two rooms in your home with a smart speaker, or set up a pair to work side-by-side in a stereo arrangement.

Nest Audio natively supports the Google Assistant, so you can control other connected smart devices with your voice or read the news and weather on demand. These little speakers might not have all the booming bass and volume in the world – and Google recently downgraded some of their multi-speaker features due to a lawsuit – but this two-pack is still excellent value for your money. Read our review.

Speaking of smart speakers, B&H Photo has a massive Sonos bundle that rarely gets a discount. The Sonos Immersive Set consists of a second-generation Sonos Beam soundbar, two Sonos One SL smart speakers, and a Sonos Sub for a combined price of $1,499 (a $97 discount). If you’re familiar with Sonos speakers, you know they rarely go on sale, so it’s worth saving a few bucks when you can.

This package is an all-in-one solution for a surround sound setup. The latest Sonos Beam supports Dolby Atmos, enabling better audio immersion, and comes equipped with HDMI eARC, which improves performance over HDMI and reduces latency issues. The two Sonos One SL speakers, on the other hand, are equivalent to the Sonos One smart speaker (without the microphone) and are designed to pull the duty from the back channel in this arrangement. Finally, the Sonos Sub handles low-end bass while watching TV shows and movies.

This simplified setup is an effective way to add surround sound to your home without running wires everywhere. It’s also a full Sonos setup, which means it works seamlessly and wirelessly with other products in the Sonos ecosystem.
