The Apple watch Series 7 41mm GPS model (in Red only) has dropped back down to $299, which is only $20 more than the best price we saw on Amazon Prime Day. The Apple watch Series 7’s most obvious improvement from its predecessors is its larger screen. The Apple watch Series 7 has a 20% larger screen and can now fit an entire touch-sensitive keyboard on the watch face itself. The display on the Apple watch Series 7 is always-on, and is 20% brighter than the previous Apple watch. In spite of increased brightness, the Series 7 boasts the same 18 hours of battery life, as well as 33% faster charging than the Series 6.
The Series 7 also follows Apple’s trend of emphasizing health-related features unique to the Apple watch compared to other smartwatches. There’s a blood oxygen and ECG app standard with the Apple watch Series 7, as well as high and low heart rate and irregular heart rhythm notifications.

34″ Dell S3422DWG 3440×1440 Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor for $389.99
Dell has the excellent 34″ Dell S3422DWG gaming monitor for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. At its current price of $389.99, it’s $60 cheaper than what we saw last Black Friday. This monitor features a 34″ 3440×1440 ultra-wide 1800R curved VA panel with a 1ms response time, 144Hz refresh rate, 3,000:1 contrast ratio and 90% DCI-P3 color coverage. It’s not officially G-SYNC compatible, although we have personally tested it and G-SYNC does indeed run fine on this monitor (as is usually the case with most gaming monitors these days). You get a 3 year warranty and it’s eligible for Dell’s Premium Panel Exchange, which allows you to get a free panel replacement during the warranty even if only one bright pixel is found.

EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU for $899.99
The RTX 3080 Ti had previously been maligned as a “poor value” compared to the RTX 3080 and that’s because of one justifiable reason: it’s MSRP of $1100. That made it a whopping $400 more expensive than an RTX 3080. At 4K resolution, an RTX 3080 Ti represents a 10% performance increase over an RTX 3080, and that certainly wasn’t worth $400.
Fast forward to today and Amazon has the EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti XC3 Ultra for $899.99. That’s only $150 more an RTX 3080 XC3 Ultra, and now the performance increase is actually quite tempting, especially if you’re gaming on a 4K monitor. If you’re running games at 4K, with an RTX 3080 you’ll be hovering at that threshold between good fps (50fps) and great fps (100+fps) in many newer games and that 10% speed bump from the RTX 3080 Ti could make all the difference in the world.
Dell G15 15″ RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop $685.99
The G15 is Dell’s gaming-focused, value-minded series of laptops. They cost much less than a comparable Alienware laptop, but borrow some of the same internal features like the dual-fan active cooling system, Alienware’s Command Center software for tweaking gaming settings and optimizing performance, and choice of gaming oriented GPUs.
For a laptop in the $700 price range, you won’t find a more powerful GPU than the RTX 3050 Ti . An RTX 3060 equipped laptop usually runs for about $300-$400 more. The RTX 3050 Ti is a bit more powerful than the previous generation’s GTX 1660 Ti and supports DLSS for better performance in supported games and ray tracing for better lighting effects. This card should be able to handle just about any game on the G15’s 15″ 1080p display without a hitch. It’s paired with an 11th gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.
Newest Apple TV 4K 32GB and 64GB Both on Sale

It boasts an A12 Bionic processor that boosts graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing and delivers high frame rate HDR with Dolby Vision. It also includes a new Apple TV remote. The overall build quality is better than before, but the biggest enhancements are a 5-way clickpad, mute button, and dedicated power button that works for your TV, receiver, and Apple TV.

New Apple AirPods Pro for $179.99
The current generation Apple AirPods Pro is one of the best sounding “truly wireless” earbuds you’ll find, especially at this price point. “Truly wireless” earbuds have no wires whatsoever; even the earbuds aren’t hardwired to each other. In addition to the excellent sound quality, the AirPods Pro is the only AirPods with active noise cancelling technology. That, combined with the inherent nature of in-ear earbuds, means that the AirPods Pro will provide better noise isolation than over-ear headphones like the Bose QuietComfort or the Sony WH1000XM5. If you’re thinking of getting a pair of new AirPods, we highly recommend jumping on this particular model.
Or, if you’re on a tighter budget, you can still grab the second generation Apple AirPods below for 100 bucks.
Soundcore Headphones Are a Cheaper AirPods Alternative

New Release: 48″ LG UltraGear 48GP900-B 4K HDR OLED Gaming Monitor for $1296.99
For those of you who love LG OLED TVs (for good reason) but don’t like the idea of using a TV for a computer monitor, there’s now an answer. LG has released its first UltraGear OLED gaming monitor. At first glance, the 48GP900 with its 48″ LG WOLED 10-bit color HDR display seems very similar to the 48″ LG C1 OLED TV. The panel is very similar, but there are some key differences. Instead of the semi glossy coating found on the OLED TV, the 48GP900 features an anti-glare low reflective coating that is undoubtedly a better fit for close up monitor usage. It also has DisplayPort connectivity and lacks the built-in Smart TV interface. It does carry over the HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K @ 120Hz compatiblity for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, as well as VRR and G-SYNC support, but the 120Hz refresh rate can be overclocked to 138Hz when used as a PC monitor. Last and certainly least important of all, there is subtle RGB backlighting on the rear of the monitor that isn’t present on the OLED TVs. This is one of the best gaming monitors you’ll find on the market right now.
Kingston A400 960GB Internal SATA SSD
My how SSD prices have fallen. Amazon is offering the Kingston A400 960GB SSD for a mere $64.99 from its original $104.99 MSRP. This is the least expensive price you’ll find for a 1TB SSD from a reputable brand. It might not the fastest SSD on the block, but with rated read speeds of 500MB/s and write speeds of 450MB/s, it will still blow past any traditional hard drive. Put it in an external SSD enclosure and you’ll have a great portable SSD drive.

Razer Anzu Smart Glasses for $59.99 (Was $200)
The Razer Anzu glasses come with two sets of interchangeable lenses; blue-light filtering lenses for indoor PC use and polarized sunglass lenses for outdoor use. Blue light filtering lenses are designed to reduce eye strain and fatigue caused by high energy blue light emitted from your computer monitor. Blue light is a melatonin suppressor, and the theory is that using your monitor at night suppresses your natural sleep cycle. If that’s true, blue light filtering lenses should help you fall asleep better, even after an intense late night gaming session. The tinted polarized lenses work much like any regular pair of sunglasses; the polarized film provides 99% UVA/UVB protection and is designed to reduce glare and eliminate potential eye damage from the sun.
Razer took an extra step and implemented wireless hands-free calling in these glasses.There’s a Bluetooth speaker and microphone embedded in the frame. A clever touch interface allows you to manipulate the controls, but it’s also voice assistant compatible. You get up to 5 hours of talk time, so you probably won’t need to charge it every day.

Roku Ultra LT 2021 4K HDR for $54.99
Walmart has the Roku Ultra LT 4K HDR streaming media player for only $55, down about 15% off its original MSRP. The Roku Ultra LT is almost identical to the $100 Ultra; the only two features it lacks are a USB port and Dolby Atmos support. It sports the same processor and memory as the Ultra, which means it excels at streaming at up to 4K HDR without a hitch. Roku still has one of the most intuitive smart TV interfaces around.
Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16″ Intel Core i7-12700H Alder Lake RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1599
Walmart is offering an outstanding deal on the new Lenovo Legion 5 Pro laptop that is also equipped with the 12th generation Intel Core i7 Alder Lake CPU and RTX 3070 GPU. The RTX 3070 GPU in this gaming laptop also has a TGP rating of 140W, and it performs as well as the MSI Crosshair on paper. In real world benchmarks, the Legion 5 Pro is one of the best performing gaming laptops on the market. It also looks more like a standard laptop, so you might want to pick this over the Crosshair if you’re not into the gamer aesthetic.
