Acer Chromebook R 11 hits a new all-time low, an unlocked Google Pixel 2 XL can be yours for $340, and Emerson’s Assistant-enabled thermostat is $89. Hit the jump for more in this 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Enjoy 10 hours of battery on the Acer Chromebook R 11

Amazon offers the Acer Chromebook R 11 4 GB/32 GB/1.6 Ghz 11.6-inch Convertible Laptop for $210. Normally selling for $279 at retailers like B&H, that’s good for a 25% discount and is a new Amazon all-time low. This Chromebook features a unique two-in-one design that allows you to convert it from being a typical laptop into a tablet. There’s 32 GB of onboard storage as well as 4 GB of RAM, plus you’ll also find a built-in SD card slot, a USB 3.0 port, HDMI, as well as up to 10 hours of battery life and more.

Google Pixel 2 XL can be yours for $340

Rakuten is offering the Google Pixel 2 XL 128 GB Unlocked Smartphone for $340. Regularly fetching closer to $600 at retailers like Walmart, today’s deal offers significant savings and is one of the best offers we’ve tracked. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about buying smartphones over the last couple of years, it’s that it pays to settle for the last-generation model. Year over year, upgrades are often easy to live without, and the savings are anything but minuscule. Pixel 2 sports a water-resistant metal unibody, a Snapdragon 835 processor, and one of the best smartphone cameras out there.

Have Siri cool you off with Emerson’s Sensi Assistant Thermostat

Amazon offers the Emerson Sensi Assistant-enabled Wi-Fi Thermostat for $89. Normally selling for $120, that’s good for a 25% discount and is a match of the third-lowest price we’ve seen this year. Today’s offer comes within $5 of this year’s Amazon low, and is one of the best we’ve tracked outside of a limited Rakuten sale. Emerson’s smart thermostat works with your Android, Alexa, Assistant, and more, right out of the box. While it doesn’t have as flashy a design as other smart thermostats, it’s an affordable way to bring Assistant-enabled temperature control to your setup. It also works with Alexa and Siri, giving you flexibility in how you incorporate the thermostat in your smart home.

Sharp’s budget-friendly 55-inch 4K Roku TV is $300

Today only, as part of its Deals of the Day, Best Buy offers the Sharp 55-inch 4K HDR Smart UHDTV with Roku for $230. That’s $150 off the original price and a match of our previous mention. It typically sells for around $400. With 4K and HDR support, along with built-in Roku functionality, this is a solid buy as a secondary TV in the bedroom or den. You’ll be able to stream all of your favorite content, alongside three HDMI inputs providing plenty of connectivity.

Two Assistant-enabled TP-Link Light Switches can be yours for $56

Newegg offers a two-pack of TP-Link Kasa HS220 In-Wall Wi-Fi Light Switches for $56. Normally selling for $40 each, that’s good for a 30% discount, beats the per switch all-time low price by $1 each and is the lowest we’ve seen for two of these in-wall accessories. Helmed by Alexa and Assistant support, this in-wall light switch doesn’t require an additional hub. Other notable features include support for scheduling, a built-in brightness indicator as well as on/off switch, dimmer buttons and more.
