Today’s best deals include Google Chromecast for $28, Chromebook deals from the Best Buy Memorial Day sale, and a number of notable Philips Hue offers. Head below for all that and more in today’s edition of 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Google Chromecast falls to $28
The 2018 Google Chromecast is on sale for $28, which is good for 20% off the regular price and one of the best prices we’ve tracked all-time. Although Apple beat Google to the punch with AirPlay, many will argue that Chromecast is a better solution. Instead of using a smartphone as a laggy middleman, Chromecast is given a direct URL to stream from. This can result in a more reliable experience with less buffering involved.
Chromebook deals abound at Best Buy
This weekend’s Memorial Day sale at Best Buy is full of deals, headlined by various Chromebooks on sale from $129. Our top pick is the Acer 15-inch 4GB/32GB Touchscreen Chromebook at $329. That’s at least $70 off the regular going rate and the best offer we’ve tracked. This model sports a convertible design, quad-core Intel processor and a built-in 32GB eMMC storage.
Philips Hue discounts HomeKit lights and accessories at Amazon
Amazon is discounting nearly the entire Philips Hue lineup for Memorial Day weekend. Deals start at just $13 on lights, accessories, and more. One top pick is the Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus at $68.
