Welcome to the weekend. This week has been a deal drought compared to last week’s Prime Day-filled coverage, but there are still some cool, limited-time offers worth highlighting. First off, Google enabled pre-orders for the Pixel 6A phone and the Pixel Buds Pro after a long wait since their announcement at Google I/O 2022. And for people who want the Pixel 6A, they’ve pre-ordered it at Google I/O 2022. Amazon or Best Buy you get an additional set of Pixel Buds A-Series wireless earbuds that normally only cost $100.

Allison Johnson published a review of the Pixel 6A on Thursday, and it looks like it was worth the wait. While it has a 6.1-inch OLED display that’s both smaller (some may prefer this) and slower in terms of refresh rate (60Hz vs. 90Hz) than the Pixel 6, it has the same Tensor processor. So at least it should be able to keep up with fast performance. As for the Pixel Buds A-series earbuds that come free with this deal, they don’t have active noise cancellation or wireless charging – both of which are present in the Pixel Buds Pro – but they sound great considering they’re a freebie. Read our review of the Buds A Series.

Pre-ordering the Pixel 6A for $449 will get you an additional set of Pixel Buds A-Series. The phone will be released on July 28, so watch out for your delivery on or after that date.

While we’re talking about Google’s hot new tech (at least, before the Pixel 7 and Pixel Watch arrive this fall), Wellbots offers roadside readers a small, but welcome $15 off the Pixel Buds Pro. Normally $199.99, use the code VERGE15 at checkout you can pay for less.

We’re still working hard on our review of the Pixel Buds Pro, but they seem to have a pretty comprehensive set of features, including wireless charging, active noise cancellation and more. Plus, they get this cool device switching trick. We can’t recommend them yet as we’re not done testing yet, but at least it’s worth jumping on this deal if you’re curious.

My biggest complaint against the new Lenovo Legion 5i Pro gaming laptop was the price, not the excellent performance. At $1,999 it wasn’t the most expensive option out there already, but $1,599 makes it an incredible deal. This is at Walmart and it fits into the Intel based configuration.

In terms of specs, it includes a 16-inch QHD display with a 165Hz refresh rate, one of Intel’s fast 12th-generation Core i7 processors, Nvidia’s RTX 3070 graphics chip, 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 1TB SSD. I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a faster gaming laptop with today’s specs at this price. Read my review for a deeper dive into performance, design and more.
