More of a PC gamer? We get it. Right now, you can pick up the outstanding Lenovo Legion 5 Pro at Walmart for $1,599 instead of the usual $2,019.99. While this laptop may be far from affordable depending on your budget, this is still the best price we’ve seen for this laptop, which we already consider excellent value for money.
Not only does the 16-inch Lenovo Legion 5 Pro offer great build quality and a great keyboard, but it also packs an impressive array of hardware at a relatively low price, which includes a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU and RTX 3070 Ti graphics card with 16 GB connects DDR5 RAM. It sports an impressive 16-inch IPS display with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a refresh rate of 165 Hz.

Another solid laptop, this configuration of the HP Envy x360 15 is available from Best Buy for $499.99. It normally retails for $1,029.99, and that price is its lowest-ever price. While it’s not the fastest 2-in-1 available, it offers excellent value for money. It sports a 15.6-inch 1080p touchscreen display, AMD’s powerful and efficient Ryzen 5 5700U CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD. In addition to two USB-A ports, the Envy also has a USB-C port and a microSD card slot.
My colleague Monica Chin tested a slightly older model with the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor, although the design of the newer model appears to be almost identical. While we haven’t tested this product, there’s a good chance it continues the line’s trend of having a great keyboard and all-day battery life. Read our review.
Several color variants of Google’s recently released Pixel Buds Pro have returned to their reduced price of $174.99 ($25 off) on Amazon. The Pixel Buds Pro improve on the design and features of the previous generation Pixel Buds by adding solid noise cancellation, longer battery life, and multipoint Bluetooth support. While there are definitely better-sounding earbuds out there at this price point, this discount on the Pixel Buds Pro is worth a look – especially if you have a Pixel phone. Read our review.
