Memorial Day is finally here, and with it, the summer sale season begins. Best Buy is no stranger to getting in on the action with a pretty killer sale of its own, offering some of the best discounts we’ve seen so far on a handful of our favorite gadgets from Apple, Microsoft, Sony, and HP. If you’re shopping the various Memorial Day sales and are hungry for some last-minute bargains before the three-day weekend comes to an end, read on: These are the five best tech deals from the Best Buy Memorial Day Sale.
The Apple iPad is still our favorite tablet, and the latest 10.2-inch model hits every note perfectly. It’s fast, it’s gorgeous, it’s well-built, it offers a great all-day battery life, and the new iPadOS is fantastic. The new iPad also features a Smart Connector, allowing you to turn it into a lightweight 2-in-1 with Apple’s Smart Keyboard. But what makes the 10.2-inch iPad most attractive of all is its price: The 32GB model is normally $330 (which is already pretty affordable), but this $80 discount knocks it down to just $250, the best price we’ve seen yet.
If you’re in the market for what might be the best noise-canceling, over-ear
The Apple Watch could be the only smartwatch that has truly found success, and the Series 5 is Apple’s latest and greatest. In fact, it’s nearly perfect, offering just about everything you could want from a smartwatch down to its vibrant always-on display and bevy of excellent fitness-tracking features. Apple gear can be pricey as it is and since the Series 5 is the latest model, you’d normally pay $400 or more for it. However, the Best Buy Memorial Day Sale lets you grab the 40mm GPS model for just $300 after a juicy 25% discount — the best price we’ve seen for the Series 5 so far, and one we don’t expect to see again until Prime Day.
Microsoft took its time before entering the PC hardware game, but the wait was worth it: Today, the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet devices offer arguably the best Windows 2-in-1 experience out there right now (and if you want a Windows tablet, a Surface is really the only choice). The Surface Pro 7 is the newest refresh, packing the latest 10th-gen Intel Core CPUs, a gorgeous 12.3-inch 3:2 touch display, and the much-needed USB-C port that was missing on its predecessors. The Surface Pro 7 really shines when paired with the excellent Type Cover keyboard that lets you use it as a 2-in-1 laptop. This high-value Memorial Day bundle lets you score both the Surface Pro 7 tablet along with a black Type Cover for just $699, saving you a whopping $260.
If the idea of a 2-in-1 excites you but the smaller 12- and 13-inch screens turn you off, then this HP Envy x360 might be a better option. It combines the versatility of a 2-in-1 laptop with a full-sized 15.6-inch 1080p touch display (which folds back on a 360-degree hinge for use in tablet or tent mode), and it packs some impressive hardware under the hood, too: A 10th-generation Intel Core i7 CPU is paired with 12GB of RAM to deliver fantastic performance for work and entertainment, while a beefy 512GB solid-state drive gives you plenty of high-speed storage. A $200 Memorial Day savings lets you grab this 2-in-1 laptop for $800.
