Ladies and gentlemen, once again, it’s the weekend — now with an extra hour of sunshine, like it or not. In terms of deals, Amazon is currently offering the 11-inch iPad Pro in its 128GB, Wi-Fi-ready configuration for $749. That’s $50 off the 2021 tablet’s regular asking price of $799, which is equivalent. with the price of the 2022 10.9-inch iPad Air with 256 GB of storage.
The iPad Air may be the new darling of Apple’s tablet lineup, but the iPad Pro still has some extra features worth considering considering they’re the same price today. First, it has a refresh rate 120Hz display for smoother scrolling and gaming, Face ID for easier unlocking (the Air uses Touch ID), and a four-speaker audio setup for more sound when it’s time to binge. However, both the Pro and new Air models have Apple’s M1 processor, so they should be equally fast.
Which is the best to go with? Well, it’s a topic much debated in the most recent episode of The Vergecast, and while you probably can’t go wrong with either tablet, it’s nice to save money in the process (the iPad Pro is the better all-round choice). ). Read our 2021 iPad Pro review.
Elden Ring is still – hands down – the most popular game today, with over 12 million copies sold and the rumor of an entire franchise inside and outside the gaming world.

Eneba is currently offering the digital version of Elden Ring for $46.49 when you use promo code XboxRings at checkout.

Switching from gaming to the smart home, Google’s Nest Audio offers excellent value for money. The smart speaker is relatively compact and its five color options allow it to easily fit into most interior settings. Most importantly, the Nest Audio offers excellent sound quality for a speaker of its size and price, typically $99.99 each.
That price is almost as good as it is now, because Google sells a two-pack of speakers for $129. That drops the price to $64.50 each. This brings the Nest Audio very close to its lowest-ever price of $59.99, giving you an affordable way to equip two rooms in your home with a smart speaker, or set up a pair to work side by side in stereo setup. .
Nest Audio natively supports the Google Assistant, so you can control other connected smart devices with your voice or read the news and weather on demand. These little speakers may not have all the bass and booming volume in the world – and Google recently downgraded some of their multi-speaker functionality due to a lawsuit – but this two-pack is still great multi-room bang for the buck.

The smart speaker from Google with better sound quality than the Google Home. Pairing two in stereo can provide a better experience while jamming to your favorite tunes.
Speaking of smart speakers, B&H Photo has an extensive Sonos bundle on offer that rarely sees a discount. The Sonos Immersive Set consists of a second-generation Sonos Beam soundbar, two Sonos One SL smart speakers and one Sonos Sub for a combined package price of $1,499 (a discount of $97). If you know Sonos speakers, you know that they rarely go on sale, so it’s worth saving a few bucks if you can.
This package is an all-in-one solution for a surround sound setup. The latest Sonos Beam supports Dolby Atmos, which provides better audio immersion, and features HDMI eARC, which improves performance over HDMI and reduces latency issues. The two Sonos One SL speakers, meanwhile, are equivalent to the Sonos One smart speaker (without the microphone) and are designed to perform the rear channel function in this arrangement. Finally, the Sonos Sub handles the low bass while watching TV shows and movies.
This streamlined setup is an efficient way to add surround sound to your home without running wires everywhere. It’s also a complete Sonos setup, meaning it works seamlessly and wirelessly with other products in the Sonos ecosystem.
