Today’s best deals: Apple MacBook Air, Sony and LG 4K TVs, Nintendo Switch and more


It’s time for another Dealmaster in the middle of the week. Our latest compilation of the best tech deals from across the web includes a nice discount on Apple’s newest M2-based MacBook Air in 256GB and 512GB versions. With discounts of $ 100 and $ 150, respectively, these are the lowest prices we’ve monitored for the new MacBook Airs.
In our review, we highlighted the excellent hardware, build quality, battery life and “out of this world” for its size and weight. Using an M2-based Air not only means better computing performance compared to the MacBook Air M1, but also an improved screen and a much nicer camera and audio system for video calling.
We also have a record low price of the 55-inch Sony A80K 4K TV with Google TV. This is an offer exclusively for Prime members that cuts $ 200 off the regular price. The A80K is well-rated for its strong, wide contrast ratio, HDR performance, wide viewing angles, and excellent reflection handling.

Elsewhere on the web, we see discounts on Google’s Nest Hub (my favorite bedside gadget), Microsoft’s Surface Laptop Studio, Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds, and a $ 100 DoorDash gift card that rewards you with a Best Buy gift card worth $ 20 with purchase, several Hynix SSDs, and more. You can check out our full offer list below.
