The HomePod is a sleek smart speaker perfect for Apple users. Its inside is built with a bass woofer for rich, powerful beats, six microphones so it hears all voice commands regardless of the direction they come from, and 360-degree speakers that know where to fire or direct the sound. The integration of Siri in this device is Apple’s best so far. Ask it questions or give it commands and it will respond to you in an instant.

AirPods Pro — $220, was $249

One of the best things you’ll love with the AirPods Pro is its noise cancellation. When activated, it can significantly block out all types of unwanted background noise, making it feel like you’ve turned on a mute button. This will enable you to focus more on your task or entertainment. A Transparency mode is also in place, so you have the choice to just let all the ambient noise in. The earbuds’ sound performance is equally impressive, offering a combination of softness, warmth, and fullness. Audio delivery and bass response are further elevated by the silicone ear tips, which ensure complete ear seal.

iPad 10.2 — $279, was $329

Digital Trends

Anyone looking for an affordable iPad that’s good enough for productivity tasks will find love with the iPad 10.2. The seventh-generation standard iPad uses Apple’s A10 Fusion processor coupled with 3GB of RAM, ensuring satisfactory performance whether it be for playing the latest games, browsing the web, or watching a movie. Operation is also work-friendly since it’s compatible with the iPadOS which ushers in a series of laptop-grade enhancements. Use the tablet together with the Smart Keyboard or Apple Pencil (both sold separately) to get the most use out of it.

iPad Mini — $340, was $399

The 5th-generation iPad Mini is a great machine for those who are on the go. Its screen is sized at 7.9 inches and while it does not have the edge-to-edge appeal of the latest iPads, it’s gorgeous enough to consume media on. Details are rich, images look natural, and colors are on point, thanks to the wonderful 2,048 x 1,538 resolution and Apple’s True Tone technology. The tablet’s dynamic firepower is supported by the A12 Bionic chip, which allows you to play games, watch a movie, and even bang out some light editing work without a hitch. You’ll also be able to work on some creative projects since it’s compatible with the first-generation Apple Pencil.

iPad Pro 12.9 — $950, was $999

If you want an iPad with the best firepower and you have the money to spend on it, look no further than the latest iPad Pro. This model uses Apple’s A12Z Bionic processor and octa-core graphics, allowing for monstrous performance that fares well even in graphics-intensive gaming, 4K video editing, and other demanding, hardcore tasks. Additionally, it boasts an incredible display with Apple’s True Tone technology, a high refresh rate, and a great pixel resolution. The tablet comes installed with the iPadOS 13.4, which provides a computer-like experience, and is compatible with a stylus or keyboard (sold separately).

iRobot Roomba 694 -- $180, was $275

Cleaning around the house can be quite taxing, especially if you're dealing with a long day of work and want to sit back and relax. That's where robotic vacuum cleaners like the Roomba 694 come in. It's a nice entry-level Roomba that helps take some of the work off your shoulders. Its three-stage cleaning system loosens dirt and debris, lifts it, then suctions it into its trash container. It also has multisurface brushes that can handle both carpet and hardwood flooring, which is a really useful feature; plus, it has a specific brush for cleaning edges that its round body might have trouble reaching. Most importantly, it can work around your schedule, and with Alexa and Google Assistant support, it can make your life easier than ever, although if you want a slightly fancier one, we do have some other robot vacuum deals for you to check out.

Inspiron 15 3000 -- $300, was $419

First up on the chopping block is the Inspiron 15 3000, a great little laptop if you're looking for a budget-friendly device for work or study. The Intel Pentium Silver N5030 may not be as powerful as their i-series CPUs, but it's still powerful enough to run the basics well, especially if we're talking about productivity software. The RAM is admittedly a bit on the low side at 4GBs, but the 127GBs storage is a bit more reasonable, although we'd still probably grab an external hard drive to help supplement the storage. Where the Inspiron 15 3000 shines is the FHD screen, which comes in at 15.6 inches, giving you tons of screen real estate to do your work. The other upside is that there is a lot of space for a big keyboard, so this can be handy if you tend to type a lot. Of course, if you want something a bit more substantial but not necessarily gaming-related, we have some other great laptop deals for you to look at.
