Almost anything becomes a little more appealing once the price goes down. Take HP’s Chromebook x2 11 tablet, for example. It’s currently selling for $299.99 at Best Buy, a price cut that’s mighty enough to outweigh its flaws. This one-day deal on the 11-inch tablet with Chrome OS makes for a much more compelling argument compared to its $599.99 regular price. When our own Dan Seifert reviewed the Chromebook x2 in December 2021, he scored it a 5.5 out of 10 due to its occasionally choppy performance. But for half price, it seems like a good deal.
What you’re getting today for $299.99 is a modestly sized tablet with a convenient 3:2 aspect ratio screen, making it taller than 16:9 alternatives, which is better for note-taking and web browsing. Its included pen and keyboard case with a kickstand give it a Microsoft Surface-like setup, and its portable size makes it easier to hold for content consumption and touch-focused tablet tasks. Its Snapdragon 7c Gen 1 processor and 8GB of RAM aren’t killer specs, but it’s a serviceable tablet for an exceptional price today.
Here’s a deal if you’re in need of a good, portable Bluetooth speaker. The JBL Clip 4 is $49.95 at Amazon and $49.99 at Best Buy. This cute speaker can clip onto a bag or easily hang on a hook or a beach umbrella when enjoying some time outside. Though, don’t let the small size fool you, as it puts out some big sound, especially for the money. It normally sells for $79.99, but this discount has it down to its lowest price yet.
The Clip 4’s battery lasts for up to 10 hours of use, and its IP67-rated weather resistance ensures that it can survive the dust and water that it’s likely to encounter on your adventures. This little speaker makes for a great companion on hikes, bike rides, picnics, or even just working on projects around the house. It earned a spot in our new list of the best Bluetooth speakers you can buy, so what great timing for it to just cost $50, with spring and summer ahead of us.
