Yeah, laptops are great, but who wants to peer at a screen to read an email, or to watch a video? This Acer 23.8-Inch IPS Widescreen Monitor is a must-have whether you’re dealing with spreadsheets, reading over documents, or just want a bigger screen for gaming.

This monitor is on sale for $96, or $34 off retail. At this price, you can even get a dual-screen!

“Can't believe I waited this long to add a second monitor to my home computer work station,” wrote a five-star Amazon reviewer. “This Acer monitor looks brilliant. Easy to set up. Plugged it in and it works great. Now I have my old 17 inch monitor on the side serving as my extended monitor when needed, and the Acer 24-inch is now my main monitor directly ahead. This monitor is so much brighter, clearer and easier to see. And I'm still using the old analog VGA video connectors. I un-boxed the monitor and was up and running with my new 2 monitor system in about 15 minutes.”

If you’re looking for a good alternative to the Apple iPad, then the Lenovo Smart Tab P10 is the tablet for you. This 10.1-inch Full HD widescreen tablet runs Android, plus it’s great for audiophiles: The four front-facing speakers have Dolby Atmos built in (so your next movie will look and sound just like you’re at the theater). It’s also a clever 2-in-1 device, thanks to a dock that transforms into an Alexa-enabled smart display. Now that’s something that’s not even offered from the Apple iPad!

The Lenovo Smart Tab P10 is on sale for $150, or $200 off its list price at Amazon. That’s a whopping 57 percent savings!

“The Lenovo Smart Tab M10 is absolutely amazing,” a satisfied shopper wrote. “Having tried several of the other Alexa products, I can definitely say this tops them all. Not only do I watch music videos, catch up on news, etc while cooking meals in the kitchen, but I constantly find myself grabbing the tablet and taking it around with me instead of carrying my bulky laptop. The integration with Alexa is seamless and the tablet sits easily within the doc. To top it all, the speakers sound great and have Dolby Atmos!”

Finding a reliable Windows 10 laptop with a large display and long battery life at a fair price can be tough. However, you’re in luck: Amazon has this 15.6-inch Acer Swift 3 laptop on sale for $500, or $187 off retail. It boasts a top-notch sleek design, a 15.6-inch Full HD touchscreen display and up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge. This laptop also runs the latest version of Windows 10 Home, so it has the productivity and entertainment tools to get you through a day of work and play.

“This computer checks every box I want in a laptop,” wrote another delighted reviewer. “Fast, responsive, cool, quiet, backlit keyboard, thin, relatively lightweight and all for a good price. The construction is very nice too. You can't find many other full bodied brushed aluminum chassis at this price point. Acer is spot on with this build, configuration and price for my tastes. The Asus Vivo machines were tempting but they have plastic bottoms. I'm glad I found this before pulling the trigger.”
