Philips Hue sale delivers deals on Assistant-enabled lighting

Acer’s high-end Chromebook Spin 13 is on sale

Amazon has Acer’s high-end Spin 13 Chromebook on sale for $699. That’s a $200 savings off the regular going rate and is the best we can find. When it comes to Chromebooks, many of the existing options are comprised of plastic since they’re are made to be budget-friendly. Much like Google’s Pixelbook, this Acer Chromebook is made with high-end materials like aluminum and glass. The use of a QHD display, Gorilla Glass, 8GB of memory, and 128GB of storage are all testaments to how Acer went the extra mile with this 2-in-1 offering. Inputs include 2x USB-C, USB-A, and more.

The TP-Link OnHub Google WiFi Router is down to $65

The TP-Link OnHub Router has been around for a while now, but with 802.11ac and support for Google WiFi, it’s still a solid buy at $65. TP-Link’s OnHub brings up to 1900 Mbps network speeds to your home alongside two built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports. It also works with the Google WiFi ecosystem, giving you many of the same features as the brand’s mesh system without the more premium price tag.

Sony Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker falls to $38

Amazon offers the Sony SRS-XB12 Extra Bass Portable Bluetooth Speaker in a variety of colors for $38. Normally selling for $58, that saves you $20 and brings the price down to the lowest we’ve tracked at Amazon. Sony’s speaker pairs a water and dustproof IP67 design with up to 16 hours of battery life and Bluetooth connectivity. The compact form-factor makes this a great option to stow in your bag. It can also wirelessly connect with another XB12 Speaker to achieve stereo sound just about anywhere. d

Assistant-enabled lighting is $19 away with this in-wall switch

Smart home lighting doesn’t have to break the bank, and this Assistant-enabled light switch is case in point. Right now it’s $19 at Amazon, down from its usual $30 price tag. This dimmer switch is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant for simple voice control. Plus, through the built-in app, you’ll be able to easily raise or lower the brightness of any room without having to speak a word (or get off the couch). Rated 4.6/5 stars.
