Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet is almost $80 off its original price at Walmart

Published

on

Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a portable Chromebook, and it’s far less expensive than usual today at Walmart. You can pick up the base model with 64GB of internal storage for $204, which is a significant discount. It normally sells for $279, but it’s been available for less since it launched.

My colleague Monica Chin wrote a review for this model, praising its 11-hour battery life and the fact that even though it’s a technically a tablet, it includes a keyboard and kickstand with purchase to make it easy to use as a laptop. Monica mentions, though, that it doesn’t have a headphone jack, so you’ll need either a set of USB-C wired earbuds or wireless Bluetooth headphones. Also, it’s not a powerful machine, with 4GB of RAM and not a whole lot of storage. A dearth of storage usually isn’t a huge deal for a Chromebook since most apps are accessed online, but if you plan to travel with it and store movies and games, it might be a concern.

If that concern has you wishing for more storage, Best Buy has the 128GB model discounted from its usual $300 price down to $269. Given that these models are exactly the same — save for storage capacity differences — an extra $65 may seem steep. But if you need it, this deal’s here at Best Buy.

Best Buy is also offering a small deal on Nintendo Switch Online yearly subscriptions. It isn’t knocking anything from the $20 it costs to subscribe to the service for one year, but you’ll get a $5 Best Buy gift card with purchase today. The same goes for Switch Online family memberships that allow up to eight users per subscription. It’s $35 and comes with a $5 Best Buy gift card. Switch Online gives you access to an expanding trove of NES and SNES classic games. The service also allows you to back up select game saves in the cloud, and it lets you play online multiplayer games.

One of the best gaming laptops released this year is the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14, and it’s $250 off its usual $1,450 price at Best Buy. It has a slick design, great keyboard and trackpad, and the battery life far exceeds that of most power-hungry gaming laptops. Additionally, it’s great at gaming as you’d expect.

What makes today’s deal at Best Buy particularly good is that this model is a match for the one my colleague Monica Chin tested in this review. It has a 14-inch 120Hz refresh rate display, AMD’s fast Ryzen 9 4900HS, Nvidia’s RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB PCIe-based SSD.

Its downsides could be deal-breakers for you. The Zephyrus G14 doesn’t have a webcam. Monica also reported that the CPU can get hot under pressure, so keep that in mind.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
