Want to escape to another one? With a virtual reality (VR) headset, you can explore all sorts of breathtaking virtual environments without ever leaving your living room.
We’ve seen VR headsets listed at a variety of price points to suit different budgets; many simple smartphone-powered models are available for less than $50. However, anyone who’s serious about VR should think about upgrading to a standalone VR headset. It’ll cost you a bit more — a couple hundred dollars, probably — but compared to the visuals most smartphone screens produce, a standalone display offers a far more immersive experience with vivid and realistic details.
If you’re a fan of Google’s Daydream VR platform, we suggest checking out the Lenovo Mirage Solo. It typically retails for around $400, but Amazon’s got it on sale right now for half off.
Billed as the first-ever standalone headset for Daydream, the Mirage Solo was also the first headset to feature Google’s WorldSense technology, which helps it figure out where you are in a room without external sensors. As such, it keeps your VR experience cord- and wire-free as you move naturally throughout different virtual spaces.
But Mirage Solo doesn’t limit you to just games and world explorations. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 VR platform and 4GB of RAM, its built-in Daydream library features apps for Hulu, YouTube, and even CNN (in case you actually start to miss the real world).
Head over to Amazon to snag a Mirage Solo for just $199.68 — $200.31 off its suggested retail price of $399.99.

TL;DR: The Lenovo Ideapad L340 gaming laptop is just $599 on Amazon today — its lowest price ever on the retail giant’s site. (It’s normally $969.99, so you’ll save $371.)
If patience is a virtue, all you console gamers out there are a saintly bunch: You have to wait ’til 2020 to get your hands on the latest Xbox or Playstation console.
That might be reason enough to convince you to join the so-called PC Master Race: PC gamers are rarely forced to twiddle their thumbs in anticipation of a new machine; gaming laptops come out all the time, and modifying them to support different titles is often as easy as swapping graphics cards. Plus, gaming PCs are way more portable than a traditional console, which allows for more flexible play. (Imagine carrying a whole-ass PS4 setup around in your backpack. Couldn’t be me!)
Whatever your personal rationale, there’s no better time than now to make the switch from console to PC gaming (or at least start dabbling in both): The 15-inch version of Lenovo’s entry-level Ideapad L340 gaming laptop is on sale on Amazon today for its lowest price in the site’s history, and every purchase includes a free game as part of a special Intel promotion.
Praised by our pals over at PCMag for its simple yet attractive design, the Ideapad L340 was released in May as a budget-friendly alternative to Lenovo’s fancier Legion series of gaming laptops. It comes in two different display sizes — 15 or 17 inches — with the former offering great bang for your buck with powerful NVIDIA GeForce Graphics, a 9th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 512 GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, Dolby Audio, a blue-light reducing Eye Care Mode, and a snazzy backlit keyboard that glows a neon turquoise. (Don’t let all those specs make you think you have to relegate this machine to just gaming, though: The Ideapad L340 features a “Quiet” mode for working in addition to its “Quick” gaming mode.)
As for that free game: Amazon will email you a redeemable code the day after your Ideapad L340 ships as part of a promotion for the Intel Gaming Days 2019 sales event. (Note: The deal’s Terms and Conditions don’t specify which game you’ll receive, but hey — free is free, right?)
The 15-inch Lenovo Ideapad L340 typically retails for $969.99, but you can order it today for just $599 — a $371 (38%) savings.

It’s time to get serious about . If your classes start right after Labor Day, you only have a few days to get all the supplies you need.
In 2019, students really can’t be without technology as they head back to the classroom. Whether it’s in-class assignments, homework, or testing practice, school basically requires access to an internet-connected device. You might be stuck between choosing a laptop or a tablet as your go-to, and if that’s you, why not consider a device that’s both — a revolutionary idea, we know.
The Lenovo Flex is a convertible laptop, meaning that it doubles as a touchscreen tablet. Today at Amazon you can get the Flex on sale for $419.99, a savings of $120. Or cop a more advanced model for $599.99, saving you $70.
This computer has a 14-inch HD display with 10-point touchscreen capabilities. It’s pretty fast with an Intel Core i3 processor and 4GB RAM. Great for students, the Lenovo Flex boasts an eight-hour battery life to keep you going the whole school day. Plus, it has 128GB SSD so you can store all of your assignments.
To convert the laptop into a tablet, simply fold the screen 360 degrees so the exterior sides of the device are back to back. In this mode you can write, draw, take notes, and much more.
The Lenovo Flex features a webcam and has two USB ports, one USB-C port, a card reader, HDMI port, and audio jack.
TL;DR: Get the speedy Lenovo Chromebook S330 on sale for $166, just in time for back to school shopping. It’s usually priced at $299, so you’ll be saving an impressive $133.
Sure, we love MacBooks just as much as the next person. But the thing is, not everyone wants to drop over $1,000 on a laptop — especially with other high-performing, more budget-friendly options out there to get the job done.
Case in point: the convenient Lenovo Chromebook S330. And just in time for checking another crucial item off your back-to-school shopping list, Walmart has it marked down to $166 —a savings of $133 off its usual $299 price tag.
Packed with a 1.70 GHz processor, 32 GB of storage, and 8 hours of battery life all in a lightweight design, the Lenovo S330 is made to keep up with your busy schedule. And for those days in class when “taking notes” looks an awful lot like watching your current Netflix binge with the subtitles on, it’ll have you covered with crisp visuals on a 14-inch, 1080p FHD display.
Like all Chromebooks, the Lenovo S330 operates on Chrome OS to keep things synced through your Google Account while personal information stays secured in Google’s Cloud. So if you’re someone who tends to forget to save the latest version of your assignment before your eyes get heavy and you hit the twin-sized, dorm room hay, you can rest easy knowing that Google Docs has your back in the morning.
Head to Walmart to get the Lenovo Chromebook S330 while it’s $166 and take on this semester with a laptop that keeps up.
