There was no shortage of gadget deals across the internet this week. Plenty of Apple products hit near record-low prices, including the AirPods Pro, the 2020 iPad Pros and the MacBook Pro M1 with extra storage. Amazon's latest device sale knocks the price of the Echo Show 5 down to $50 and the Kindle Paperwhite down to $95. Plus, there are still some Mother's Day sales you can take advantage of, like Fitbit's which discounts almost all of its wearables. Here are the best tech deals we found this week that you can still get today.
Woot has the AirPods Pro for $190 right now, or $60 off their normal price. While not as low as we saw them during Black Friday, it remains one of the best prices we've seen. We gave the AirPods Pro a score of 87 for their solid ANC, good audio quality and hands-free Siri capabilities. If you're not comfortable with Woot's return policy, you can grab the AirPods Pro for $197 at Amazon.
Star Wars Day deals
While most May the 4th deals have come and gone, there are a few stragglers that you can still grab. Key among them are 6-quart Star Wars Instant Pots at Williams Sonoma, a trio of which are down to $60 each. GameStop's Star Wars Day sale is also still ongoing and it knocks up to 50 percent off Star Wars video games and up to 15 percent off collectables.
A few 2020 iPad Pros remain on sale at Amazon, namely the 512GB 11-inch version that has been discounted to $949. This sale comes on the heels of the 2021 iPad Pros officially going on sale last week — and you can get a few of those devices for less, too. Walmart has the 128GB 11-inch model for $749 or the 256GB version for $849, or $50 off their normal prices. While the 11-inch iPad Pro doesn't have the new Liquid Retina XDR display that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro has, it does have Apple's new M1 chipset, a new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a USB-C Thunderbolt port and 5G support.
MacBook Pro M1
The MacBook Pro M1 with 512GB of storage is down to $1,300 on Amazon thanks to a coupon that knocks an additional $49.01 off its sale price. We gave the latest Pro a score of 84 for its speedy performance, comfortable keyboard and trackpad and 16.5-hour battery life.
Mac Mini M1
The Mac Mini M1 with extra storage is back down to $800 right now thanks to an automatically applied coupon that knocks an additional $29.01 off the sale price. This is a great time to pick up the latest Mac Mini if you've wanted to upgrade your desktop to something more powerful that's also compact enough to fit into most desk setups.
Amazon Echo Show 5
Amazon's running a large device sale that knocks the price of the Echo Show 5, among other things, down to $50. That's only $5 more than its all-time low, so if you missed out the last time the smart display was on sale, now's a good time to grab it. Also included in this sale is the Echo Show 8, which is down to $75, and the new Echo Show 10, which dropped to $200. Other devices like Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite and the Fire TV Stick 4K have also been discounted.
The Roku Streambar is still on sale for $99, or $30 off its normal price. This is a good option if you want to upgrade the sound quality on an older TV without spending a ton of money, and could use a streaming tech upgrade, too. We gave the Streambar a score of 86 for its compact design, built-in 4K streaming technology and solid audio quality.
Facebook Portal Mini
Facebook's Portal Mini smart display is still on sale for $65 at Target and a bunch of other Portal devices have been discounted at Amazon. The 8-inch Mini lets you video chat using various apps like Zoom, GotoMeeting, WhatsApp and others, and you can use it as a makeshift digital frame to display photos when you're not actively using it.
Fitbit Mother's Day sale
A number of Fitbit devices remain on sale ahead of Mother's Day. The Fitbit Sense is down to an all-time low of $250 while the Versa 3 is on sale for $180 and the Inspire 2 is down to $70. The first two options are better for those that like the smartwatch look while the Inspire band is best if you want a more minimalist device to track daily activity and sleep.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 3
Samsung's Galaxy Watch 3 hit a new all-time low at Amazon of $230. That's $170 off its normal price and a great sale on one of the best smartwatches you can get if you're an Android user. We gave the Galaxy Watch 3 a score of 86 for its useful spinning bezel, improved workout tracking and good sleep monitoring.
