While Presidents' Day sales aren't exactly known as a bastion of tech deals, today's Dealmaster has found a few good discounts for those looking for new gadgets, games, and electronics gear.
Highlights from our roundup below include several deals on recommended Apple products, with the AirPods Pro marked down to $180—which is $60 off Apple's MSRP and tied for the second-lowest price we've tracked—the 64GB iPad Air down to a new low of $540, and the MagSafe Charger for iPhone 12 down to a new low of $34.
Elsewhere, we have a handful of deals on noteworthy laptops, including the 256GB version of Microsoft's Surface Laptop Go available for a new low of $700 and a few good value configurations of HP and Lenovo notebooks. We also have a truckload of discounts on video games for both consoles and PC, a near-low on LG's well-regarded CX OLED TV, and several discounts on wireless headphones and budget-friendly Amazon Fire HD tablets, among other offers. You can check out our full slate of curated discounts below.
