We saw some great deals on tech this week, including sales on Apple devices and OLED TVs. Some of the latest MacBooks with Apple’s new M1 chips are on sale, while some Vizio OLED TVs are hundreds of dollars cheaper at Best Buy. You might not get your new TV until Sunday’s big game, but it’s still worth checking out these Super Bowl TV deals if you’re in the market for a new device. Plus, Amazon’s Kindles have the best prices we’ve seen since Black Friday, and Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure is back in stock and on sale. Here are this week’s best deals and get yours today.

MacBook Pro M1


Some of the latest MacBooks with Apple’s M1 chipset are available for sale. The MacBook Pro M1 with 256GB of storage is $ 100 and costs $ 1,199, while the MacBook Air M1 with 256GB of storage is $ 50 and less than $ 949. The price of the Air has gone up $ 20 since we first closed that deal, but the new retail price is still decent. Both the Pro and Air impressed us with their fast performance. We recommend the former if you want the highest performance in an Apple laptop and the latter if you want a fanless machine.
