Almost everything becomes a bit more attractive once the price drops. Take HP’s Chromebook x2 11 tablet, for example. It’s currently selling for $299.99 at Best Buy, a big enough price drop to make up for its flaws. This one-day deal on the 11-inch tablet with Chrome OS makes a much more compelling argument over its regular price of $599.99. When our own Dan Seifert reviewed the Chromebook x2 in December 2021, he gave it a 5.5 out of 10 due to its sometimes jerky performance. But at half price, it seems like a bargain.
What you get today for $299.99 is a modestly sized tablet with a handy 3:2 aspect ratio screen, making it taller than 16:9 alternatives, which is better for note taking and web browsing. Its included pen and keyboard case with a kickstand gives it a Microsoft Surface-like setup, and its portable size makes it easier to hold for content consumption and tablet touch tasks. Its Snapdragon 7c Gen 1 processor and 8GB of RAM aren’t great specs, but it’s a serviceable tablet at a bargain price today.
Here is an offer if you need a good portable Bluetooth speaker. The JBL Clip 4 is $49.95 at Amazon and $49.99 at Best Buy. This cute speaker can clip onto a bag or easily hang from a hook or umbrella when spending time outdoors. Don’t let the small size fool you though, as it sounds big, especially for the money. It normally sells for $79.99, but this discount is at its lowest price yet.
The Clip 4’s battery lasts up to 10 hours of use, and its IP67-rated weather resistance ensures it can survive the dust and water it’s likely to encounter on your adventures. This little speaker is a great companion for hikes, bike rides, picnics, or even just working on projects around the house. It’s earned a spot on our new list of the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy, so what a great time it’s only $50, with spring and summer ahead of us.
While there are plenty of rumors and expectations for an Oculus Quest 3 or any other AR headset that may possibly come from Meta and Apple, the Quest 2 still makes a compelling case for owning one, especially when it is at a reduced price. You can pick up a refurbished Oculus Quest 2 from an Oculus Authorized Reseller on eBay for $249. That’s a $50 discount on the 128GB model, and this refurbished one also comes with a two-year warranty. There’s arguably no simpler or more streamlined experience in the VR space than the Meta’s Quest headset, and beyond games and fitness experiences like Supernaturalyou can also use it to change the scenery and relax a bit.

While the world of restocking new consoles and buying a PS5 or Xbox Series X is getting very slowly better, graphics cards are starting to look the same. The world’s top-end RTX 3090 and 3080 Ti cards are still hard to come by, but if you’ve got your hopes and specs a bit lower, you can not only easily buy a mid-range Nvidia GPU today, but you can get a deal while you’re at it.
One such GPU is the EVGA RTX 3070 Ti, which is currently selling on Amazon for $759.99. This modest $60 discount gets you a very capable card for smooth 1440p gaming, with 8GB of memory supporting DLSS upscaling and ray tracing – and that’s definitely worth paying the price for. sky-high prices of well over $1,000 that we’ve seen in the last year and change.
EVGA also outfitted it with vibrant RGB lighting for those who like to show off their PC’s internals. If you have a fairly large case and are looking for a worthwhile upgrade or are undertaking a new build, this board is a great option. Read our review.
