If the deal on the 512GB M2-powered MacBook Air that we saw earlier this week was too expensive for you, don’t worry, Apple’s base model is even cheaper right now. Straight away, Amazon and Best Buy are selling the model with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for just $1,049 ($150 off), the laptop’s lowest price yet. Unlike Amazon, however, Best Buy offers a discount on all colors in case you’re not a fan of dark blue or gray.
Admittedly, it may take some time to complete some tasks as storage on the base model is slower than the new 512GB M2-powered Air, but it’s still faster overall and should meet the needs of the average person. person must comply. Plus, it significantly improves on one of the things we didn’t like most about the M1-powered Air: the awful 720p webcam. Instead, the newer model has a much better 1080p camera.
However, if you prefer something with a faster and larger storage capacity, you’re in luck: the 512GB storage model still retails for $1,349 in select colors at Amazon. Read our review.

Have you been eyeing Apple’s Watch Series 8 but don’t have $399 just lying around to spend? If all you’re looking for is a wearable that helps you monitor your health and fitness goals, the Apple Watch-esque Fitbit Sense is a cheaper alternative. Amazon is currently selling the first-generation fitness tracker in white for $174 instead of $299.95, which is almost the lowest price to date. No other store currently matches that price, though Walmart sells the same model for $6 more if you don’t want to shop at Amazon.
Unfortunately, the last-generation Sense doesn’t have the physical buttons on the Sense 2, nor does it offer the new Continuous Electrodermal Activity (cEDA) sensor to better track your stress levels. Nevertheless, it is a good tracker that can track your stress, albeit not continuously, throughout the day. It’s also great at tracking your sleep habits and comes with an EKG, a feature even our favorite tracker, the Fitbit Versa 3, lacks. Read our review.
