  • It’s a big sale today, both literally and figuratively. Our leading deal is an LG 32GK650F-B display, measuring 32″ across and placing 2560×1440 pixels on its VA panel. The static contrast ratio is 3000:1, the refresh rate is a speedy 144 Hz, and there’s a blur-reduction mode and FreeSync support on tap. The stand has height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustments, and the price tag reads just $309.99 at Newegg.

  • It’s time to talk storage, and the first speaker of the day is the Western Digital EasyStore 8 TB. This simple drive does its job with aplomb and no fuss, and even comes with included backup software. Pick one up for only $129.99 from Best Buy if you join My Best Buy (free registration). That works out to $16.25 a terabyte.

  • Lately, it’s not a matter of whether the Intel 660p 1 TB NVMe drive will be on sale, rather, but rather, for how much. This drive can do 1800 MB/s in sequential reads and writes, and its random I/O figures ring in at 150K IOPS for reads and 220K IOPS when writing. The price tag currently reads just $87.99 at Newegg with the cart code EMCTBUD23. If you’re looking for a faster drive, then your huckleberry’s the HP EX920 1 TB. This model can do 3200 MB/s reading and 1800 MB/s writing, and is priced at 104.99 at Newegg.

  • Look who’s back. Apple must really be feeling a sales pinch, as it seems that not a day goes by without a sale on some iDevice. Today’s entrant is the iPad 2018 (latest model) with 128 GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity. This sleek metal machine contains an Apple A10 Fusion SoC with four cores (2+2) ticking away and a PowerVR Series 7 XT Plus IGP. The colorful display has a resolution of 2048×1536, and there’s 2 GB on tap, as well as a 8827 mAh battery. Grab one of these for only $299.99 from Best Buy if you sign up (free) to be a My Best Buy member.

  • The first laptop on hand is a mighty gaming machine. The sleek-looking Asus ROG Zephyrus (GA502DU-BR7N6) is quite pretty in yours truly’s opinion, and it’s powered by a four-core, eight-thread AMD Ryzen 7 3750H processor sitting next to 16 GB of RAM. Graphics horsepower comes by way of a cool ‘n’ quiet Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q graphics card that slaps pixels onto the 120 Hz 1920×1080 IPS display. There’s a generously sized 512 GB NVMe SSD for storage. The asking price for the whole caboodle is just $1049.99 at Best Buy.

  • The last item and second portable is the Lenovo IdeaPad 730S (81JB000AUS). This machine’s aluminum jib is of a cut above most laptops, and inside it sits a Core i7-8565U processor next to 16 GB of RAM and a 256 GB solid-state drive. The 11.9 mm chassis frames a 1920×1080 display and holds a battery that should be good for 10 hours of usage. The whole thing weighs just 2.43 lbs (1.1 kg) on your hands, and $754.02 on your wallet when ordered from Rakutenwith the checkout code SAVE15.

    • I know, right? I’ve had a ton of PC-related expenditures in the last month but that one’s got me like “hmmmm…..”

      • This sale brings that LG monitor down to the same price as the Pixio PX329. Buy one of each, Ben, and let us know how they compare.

        • Yeah I’ll do that with all my spare cash. 😆

          Good news is that I have no reason to rush to buy now.

      • I just bought one of these for my g/f (who games way more than I do these days!) and it was an excellent purchase. It’s a ton of screen and features for the price.

        She told me that she only needed a 27-inch monitor, but I honestly couldn’t find one with all the same inputs and features (including a non-TN panel) at a better price, so I just bought her this one. Since she doesn’t have a TV and she also watches Netflix on it from her couch, this turned out to be a really good decision – and she’s decided that a larger display was fine after all 🙂

        I honestly really like LG displays – and they’re definitely pricing some of their larger format monitors very aggressively. See also the 43UD79-B (which I own, and love).

    • That only gets you 30% of the stand, which means you get the shipping carton, documentation and customer service.

      The stand itself costs another $689.00
