While the Xbox Series X is becoming more widely available these days, the Xbox Series S is an affordable alternative that sells for less than half the price. It also plays the same games as the Series X, is backwards compatible with original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One games, and targets 1440p resolution and up to 120fps on compatible games (with 4K upscaling). If you don’t mind that it lacks a disc drive and only offers 512GB of internal storage, it’s a smaller Game Pass-ready console that you can easily put on your desk or anywhere else in your home.

Amazon’s second-gen Echo Show 5 makes a great Mother’s Day gift that’s also affordable, especially now that the smart display retails for almost half its usual price. Right now, Amazon it’s selling the smart display for $44.99 ($40 off), which is its best price to date. Other retailers, including Best Buy, Kohl’sY Goal they are selling it for $49.99.
Mom can use the small 5.5-inch smart display for a variety of purposes, whether it’s as a smart alarm clock for her nightstand or as an entertainment device to play music and stream shows. She can also use the Alexa-enabled smart display to control other smart home devices, get weather reports, and more. We also like that it produces solid sound for its size and that its improved 2MP camera comes with a physical shutter to block the camera’s view. However, just keep in mind that she can’t use this smart display to make Zoom calls. Still, if she’s looking for a relatively affordable smart device, this is a good deal and gift to consider. read our review.

In the market for an affordable Chromebook? The Lenovo Chromebook Duet is our top pick for those on a budgetand right now, it’s on sale for $249 at Best Buy instead of $299 when buying the model equipped with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Despite its affordable price, the 2-in-1 looks and feels good, and we like that it offers excellent battery life. In fact, it lasted nearly eleven and a half hours as we made Zoom calls and worked across a variety of tabs and apps, including Gmail, Slack, and Facebook. We also liked that you can easily take the lightweight Chromebook, which comes with a detachable keyboard and stand cover, out and about, too.
Of course, given its relatively low price, there are some downsides. It lacks a 3.5mm audio jack and only offers a USB-C port. Also, its MediaTek Helio P60T processor is not particularly suitable for more advanced tasks than simple browsing and everyday work. Still, it offers good value for money, especially with today’s $50 discount. read our review.
