16 best deals: laptops, cameras, and video games
The weather is winter on track for most of the US this long weekend. I go for it because what does "beach weather" really look like snow? Okay, maybe I'm doing it wrong. If you are planning to hunt for a good deal, we have you covered. We’ve found discounts on laptops, cameras, coffee makers, and games to help you while you’re away during the winter hours. Take a look.

Laptop and PC storage terms
While Apple’s latest 14- and 16-inch MacBooks are the obvious choice for power users, the 13-inch model is worth considering if your budget isn’t expanding so high. The model is slightly more capable than the MacBook Air. (Read our guide on choosing the right MacBook.) This deal gives you the maximum storage space for the price of an entry - level model. The deal is also available at B&H Photo but expires at midnight on January 15th.
The 13-inch Surface Laptop based on AMD 4 is my favorite resolution among the many Surface Laptop 4s (see our guide on buying Surface for more information). This agreement gives you 8 gigabytes of RAM and a 128-gigabyte SSD. It was $ 700 in November and December last year, but this is still a very tough discount.
We really like Sabrent's Rocket Nano SSD. It's small and fast enough for everything from backup to storing large video files. It gets hot under heavy loads - such as direct video editing from the driver - and sometimes slowly pops into Windows 10 (I did not have this problem in Windows 11), but for off - the - shelf backup , moving data, and surviving life on the road, it's hard to beat at this price. The 1-TB model is also for sale. Check out our guide on the best portable storage drivers for other options.
This is an inside budget SSD, meaning it's not very fast and is not the best choice for gamers or video editors, but it's still a solid upgrade if you run out of space. You install it directly on the motherboard of your desktop computer.
This Samsung Evo is slightly faster than the most popular green one (which is also frequently sold). The extra speed will make your phone a bit faster to recover files, but it's not fast enough for a digital camera (see below for a good camera storage card).
Our favorite full-frame video solution is currently selling at an all-time low (the same price it went down on Black Friday in 2021). Check out our guide to the best mirrorless cameras for more information on why we love the Lumix S5 so much.
GoPro has been running this deal since November, but the company recently added their new Enduro battery to sweeten the pot. I've been testing the Enduro for a few weeks now, and while the extra runtime still depends on what type of video you're shooting, I can now reliably get about 35 to 40 minutes of 5K video out of a single Enduro battery. This agreement includes a 1-year GoPro subscription, so if you don't want that for more than a year for free, be sure to set a reminder to cancel. .
This is hands down the best SD card I have used in a digital camera. There are a few out there that are a bit faster, but I've never had a problem with this Lexar, and it's proven to be very reliable. I don't want a jinx, but I have two of those that are almost six years old and still working like new.
Home, Kitchen, and Ebike Contracts
The BoostIQ is a powerful robot cleaner at an affordable price. It's a year or two old and no app like newer models, but it still does the job. It is small, uses advanced technology for cleaning around your home, and has a very good battery life. It's a great entry into the empty robot world.
If you need a new mattress, this is one of our favorite for solid style fans. It's a hybrid, so a combination of cooling gel foam, high - density foam, and corals are individually wrapped, and you might like it if you deal with certain types of back pain. . Read more about it in our Best Matresses guide. We also collected other home and bed contracts earlier in the week here.
If you like a good cup of coffee ready when you get up, this Cuisinart fits the bill. I had a very similar model and loved the ability to set the exact temperature at which I want my coffee to be brewed.
I have tried several Nutribullets now, though not this one, and found that they were powerful mixers that were able to handle everything from your basic smoothie to more challenging things like butter home nut. If you need a mixer and do not want to spend a fortune, this agreement fits the bill.
WIRED employees love it The Witcher 3. One of us will even say that it's the best game of the decade. So go ahead, throw a coin to your Witcher.
Dive into the world of Mario created by users with this deal on the game we call “one stop shop for being completely destroyed by Mario levels. ”
It's been out for a while, but like most Nintendo games, it doesn't often see discounts. You get a little classic Donkey Kong action here, but it's also for anyone who loves sidescrollers.
This Assassin's Creed game often sells, but this price leaves it a steal. It's long winded with a twisted story, but a raid on Saxon cities as a Viking in the Dark Ages makes up for it. It's a great game to watch too.
