Save on Samsung’s latest Chromebook, the iPad Air, and more

A good-looking Chromebook doesn’t have to cost over $500

The 15.6-inch version of Samsung’s Chromebook 4 is down to its lowest price on Amazon. Normally $349.99, it’s $279.99 right now. This model was introduced in late 2019, and it served as a successor to the woefully outdated Chromebook 3. It’s a great value as far as Chromebooks are concerned. You’ll be getting a laptop with a sizable 1080p display, a modern design, USB-C charging, and 6GB of RAM.

Samsung also makes an 11-inch version of the Chromebook 4, though with just a $50 price difference, you’re better off avoiding its 720p display (not to mention its egregiously thick bezels) and going with the bigger model that’s on sale today.

Apple’s 2019 iPad Air is steeply discounted today at B&H Photo — that is, if you’re interested in a very specific configuration. The space gray tablet with 256GB of storage and Wi-Fi + LTE capabilities is $599 for a limited time. This same tablet costs $779 everywhere else. B&H Photo sells it unlocked, so if you choose to pay your carrier to add the iPad Air to your line (it’s optional), you can stick practically any SIM card inside for unfettered access to the web.

Resurfacing a deal from yesterday, the Surface Go with 8GB RAM and 128GB of SSD storage is marked down at the Microsoft Store and Best Buy. Normally, that model costs $549 by itself, plus another $100 to $129 for a Type Cover that allows you to use it like a proper laptop. The bundle of both items is now $599.99, saving you upwards of $80.

You’ll need to have a My Best Buy member account to take advantage of the deal at Best Buy; it’s free to sign up and only requires an email address. Activate the coupon to buy the bundle online, or print it and bring it to your local Best Buy. At the Microsoft Store, simply build the bundle and check out.
