Best Microsoft Surface deal

Why we like it

Microsoft Surface Pro devices can function as both fully-functional laptops equipped with a keyboard as well as ultra-portable tablets. Some of them are on sale this week, but the pick of the lot is the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 (16GB RAM, 256 SSD), which is currently sitting at a shade under $960 at Best Buy. To put this in perspective, this is a cool $640 off the product’s MSRP, and also its lowest-ever price at Best Buy. The 2-in-1 tablet’s 3:2 aspect ratio displays more content and is more suitable while multitasking, while the powerful processor helps you to run demanding apps smoothly. With Intel Iris Xe graphics and a refresh rate that runs up to 120Hz, your gaming or streaming experience will be top-notch. The deal also bundles a 6-month Micro Internet Security subscription worth $30 for free so that you can continue working safely without any security fears looming over your head.

Best Amazon Fire Tablet deal

Why we like it

The Amazon Fire HD 10 Plus tablet fell to an all-time low price of $104.99 on Jan. 15, and in case you missed the bus last week, the good news is that it’s still lingering at the same price. The 12-hour battery life is sufficient for an entire work day plus some casual streaming, while the 4GB RAM is great for multitasking efficiently. While the tablet lacks support for the Google Play Store, the Amazon Appstore still offers some of the most popular messaging and entertainment apps, such as Netflix, Facebook, and TikTok, so you won’t run out of options. If you have upcoming travel plans, opt for the Fire HD 10 Plus tablet with wireless charging dock bundle that’s on sale for $154.98 (or 32% off its MSRP). Your tablet won’t run out of juice during a crucial layover thanks to the 15W of high-speed charging. And while it charges in the dock, it can function as a smart display, eliminating the need to purchase an Amazon Echo Show.

Best Kindle deal

Why we like it

The Kindle Kids (16GB) received an excellent rating from PCMag’s Will Greenwald thanks to its sharp display, cute magnetic flip covers, and overall usability. It’s now down to $84.99 at Target, which is also its lowest price to date. The E-Ink display and Bookmark function replicate the feel of a paperback book, while the 6-week long battery will keep your kids entertained for long stretches without the need of frequent charging. The 300ppi display is also glare-free to prevent eye strain and helps your little ones make the adjustment to a reading tablet more comfortably. However, unlike the Kindle Paperwhite Kids, this reader is not waterproof. The 16GB of storage is sufficient for keeping a ton of kid-friendly content on the tablet, which can be accessed thanks to a free 1-year subscription to Amazon Kids+ ($4.99/month auto-renewal thereafter).
