Our top pick

Marketed as “scary fast” at the Apple event last fall, the M3 Pro chip is up to 40 percent zippier than the M1 Pro. That makes this 14-inch MacBook Pro it’s housed in one of the speediest laptops you can buy. The M3 Pro version also improves on the already insanely good battery life of the M3 — up to 22 hours versus 17 hours. Other additions include fast remote screen sharing with other Mac devices, Game Mode, and a new Space Black color. Regularly $1,999, you can grab the 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M3 Pro chip, 18GB RAM, and 512GB SSD for only $1,699 as of June 11. That’s $300 in savings and a new low for the ultra-fast laptop.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ (256GB, WiFi)
at Amazon

Save $110.00

Mashable reviewer RJ Andersen dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 FE+ a “great tablet for casual users who still want a high-quality, reliable device.” It’s essentially a budget-friendly alternative to the flagship Galaxy Tab S9; it still touts a tough IP68 dust- and water-resistant rating, a 12.4.-inch screen, 20 hours of battery life, and an included S Pen. Where the models differ most are the display, the CPU, and the price. The FE+ is $400 cheaper than the flagship model. And as of June 11, i’s on sale for even less at Amazon. Snag the 256GB version for just $589.99 — that’s $110 in savings for a limited time.

Echo Show 8 (3rd Gen)
at Amazon

Save $55.00

The latest Echo Show 8 improves on all of the things we loved about the previous generation device. It packs a centered 13MP front camera for clearer calls, a dynamic interface that adjusts what’s on the screen based on how near or far you are to the device, and spatial audio for more enjoyable listening. And, of course, it doesn’t fix what wasn’t broken. It can be used as a central hub for everything from controlling your lights and security cameras to making video calls and streaming shows. As of June 11, it’s back down to just $94.99 from the usual $149.99. That’s a savings of 37%.

If you have a long trip coming up, these headphones are definitely up for the challenge. Sadly, they lack noise-cancellation and other fancy features, but they sound great, look cool, and have a price tag that won’t make you cringe. As of June 11, grab a pair on sale for just $88.60 — that’s 41% off the usual cost.
