It's Memorial Day weekend, which means the time has come for another Dealmaster . Our latest roundup of good tech deals from around the web includes all the best offers we could dig up from this weekend's crop of holiday sales. While Memorial Day promotions generally focus on home goods, appliances, and mattresses more than electronics, we've still found a few gadget deals of note for those who can't wait for more tech-centric sales events like Black Friday or Amazon Prime Day.
The highlights include a number of deals on Apple devices. The Apple Watch Series 7, for instance, is back down to $329 , which is about $25 off its street price online, $70 off Apple's MSRP, and generally a good price for the top pick in our guide to the best smartwatches . The 256GB version of the latest iPad Air is available for $679 , which matches the lowest price we've tracked, while the MacBook Air is discounted to $900 , which matches the lowest price we've seen this year. (Just note that the latter is expected to receive a refresh with a faster chip at some point in 2022, if you can afford to wait.) Best Buy is running a promotion that gives a bonus $10 in store credit if you buy a $100 Apple Gift Card, and other gadgets like the third-gen AirPods and MagSafe Charger are cheaper than we typically see as well.
Beyond that, our roundup includes several ongoing deals on PlayStation games and gear, including a rare discount on PlayStation 5 controllers, plus lower-than-usual prices on Bose's highly comfortable QuietComfort 45 headphones, Google's Nest Hub smart display and Nest Audio smart speaker, well-reviewed laptops from Lenovo and HP, an excellent LG OLED TV, tons of PC games, and some 4K Blu-rays for a few movies we like.
