The 5 best deals in the Walmart Rollback Sale — laptops, TVs, and more

The Walmart Rollback Sale is here, just in time to go up against the Amazon Early Access Sale, which is being referred to as the October Prime Day and starts tomorrow. While the Prime Day deals on offer the second time around this year will surely generate a lot of interest, Walmart will try to draw shoppers away from Amazon with its own price cuts for devices such as laptops, TVs, smartwatches, and much more.

Walmart rolled out all kinds of discounts across the different product categories, so it may get overwhelming if you’re going to take a look around. To help you out, we’ve gathered five of the best deals in this year’s edition of the Walmart Rollback Sale. You’re going to want to act fast if there’s an offer that catches your eye though, as we’re not sure how long it will be available.

If you just need a laptop for basic functions, or for your child’s schoolwork, then the HP 11.6-inch Chromebook may be the device for you. Chromebooks are usually cheaper than Windows-based laptops because they use low-end components, but they’re still quick and snappy because their operating system, Google’s Chrome OS, depends on web-based apps instead of installed software. The HP 11.6-inch Chromebook isn’t as feature-packed as the best Chromebooks, but it’s more than enough for everyday tasks with its AMD A4 processor, integrated AMD Radeon R4 Graphics, and 4GB of RAM. The Chromebook also comes with an 11.6-inch HD screen and a 10-hour battery life.

Gateway 14.1-inch Ultra Slim Notebook — $127, was $199

Between the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Series 7, the latest model of Apple’s wearable device is the better purchase because of its Low Power mode that doubles battery life, and offers updated sensors and crash detection.

With Prime Day fully upon us, we're seeing a lot of great deals on Apple's products, from the AirPods to the excellent Apple Macbook Air, to the point where we might as well call it Apple Prime Day deals with what we're seeing. Of course, there are a lot of other great Prime Day deals to check out if you aren't specifically tied to Apple's ecosystem, especially since you might find a somewhat better deal.
Apple AirPods -- $90, was $159

While the Apple AirPods 2nd generation is now considered entry-level compared to other AirPods, they're still a force to be reconned with at only half the price. One of the most important things about any headphones is the sound, and the AirPods 2nd gen is a bit more smoothed out so that it doesn't offend anybody. That means that instruments are smooth, the treble is clear though it lacks presence, and the bass is not too bad, although not at the level of earphones at double the cost. That's to say that altogether, the audio quality isn't bad, and when you consider the roughly five-hour battery life of the AirPods with up to 24 hours when you include the case, they're a surprisingly good deal. On the other hand, it's worth checking the comparison between the Apple AirPods Pro 2 vs. AirPods Pro to see if you're OK with going with the lower generation.
