The Verge Deals team is back in action this week, delivering excellent savings over the internet. If you’ve been bidding your time buying a new high-end TV, you might want to check out this day-long discount on the 75-inch model of Samsung’s QN85B Neo QLED TV, which is selling for the lowest price ever. The QN85B usually retails for $2,799.99, but currently retails for $2,399.99. While this QLED model may lack the unparalleled contrast and brightness control of more expensive OLED models, the QN85B should deliver great image quality and accurate lighting with its Mini LED technology, on top of a number of other excellent features.
This 4K display has a 120Hz refresh rate and is HDR10 Plus compatible, allowing for excellent color depth in content that supports it. The Tizen operating system built into the TV supports Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa assistants for hands-free control. Not to mention, this TV is just huge.
The Nike-branded Apple Watch Series 6 model normally costs $414.99, but is currently discounted to $249 at Walmart. While this 40mm GPS-enabled model may lack the redesigned aesthetics, fast charging and some of the health tracking features present in the newer Series 7, the Series 6 still offers excellent performance.
Compared to the Apple Watch SE, the Apple Watch Series 6 brings a number of improvements, including an always-on display, a second-generation heart sensor and a faster processor. In addition to the perforated watch band, the Nike edition has a number of custom watch faces, which provide more direct access to the Nike Run Club app. Furthermore, this model is almost identical to the standard Series 6.

If you have a Samsung phone, a solid wearable is available here at a great price. The 40mm, Bluetooth-enabled Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 is currently discounted to $176.16 at Amazon, putting this $249.99 smartwatch within spitting distance of its best ever price. It features an intuitive and responsive interface, combined with a comprehensive set of health tracking features. The Galaxy Watch 4 works with Android phones (as long as you install multiple Samsung apps), but Samsung users will have an easier time getting the most out of this watch. Read our review†
While everyone is clamoring for the new version of the MacBook Air and its M2 processor, it won’t be available until next month. However, the latest-generation MacBook Air with its M1 CPU is currently available for the somewhat regular discounted price of $899.99 on Amazon and Best Buy, giving $100 off this lightweight laptop.
The MacBook Air’s 13.3-inch display has a crisp 2560 x 1600 resolution and has 256GB of built-in storage, 8GB of RAM and a long-lasting battery. While the 720p webcam doesn’t look particularly good, the M1 CPU still gives the MacBook Air the power it needs to go way above its weight and price range. Read our review†
The Lenovo Yoga Tab 11 tablet that comes with the Lenovo Precision Pen 2 stylus is currently discounted to $199.99 at Best Buy. This is the best price we’ve seen for this unique 11-inch tablet that originally sold for $369.99. This tablet features a large adjustable handle built into the back of the display, which allows you to easily hang or prop the tablet on a nearby surface to serve as an external display, thanks to USB-C connectivity.
Equipped with a 2000 x 1200 Dolby Vision compatible display, the Yoga Tab 11 is great for streaming videos to keep yourself entertained. While the MediaTek CPU and 4GB of RAM may not give this tablet the power it needs to run multiple apps smoothly in succession, it’s a consolation that it can store a ton of apps and media with its 128GB of storage (expandable via microSD). It is only important to note that this tablet is approaching the end of its support lifecycle and is not compatible with the Android 11 operating system.
A number of Razer peripherals are currently being discounted to their lowest ever price, including the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and Razer Orochi V2 mice. The largest rodent in the Razer arsenal, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate originally sold for $149.99, but is on sale for $79.99 at Amazon and GameStop. You can also find the more modest Razer Orochi V2 discounted to $27.99 at Best Buy, a far cry from its original price of $69.99.
The Basilisk Ultimate features a 20K DPI optical sensor and 11 programmable buttons, along with a scroll wheel with adjustable resistance. The design should be suitable for people using the claw grip. The Basilisk Ultimate comes with a charging dock that provides a convenient place to store the mouse while charging.
At the other end of the spectrum, the Razer Orochi V2 is another wireless model that is instead powered by a single AA or AAA battery, depending on how much weight you want to add to the chassis. While using disposable batteries may sound old-fashioned by comparison, the Orochi V2 can still run for up to 950 hours on a single battery. Equipped with an optical sensor with up to 18K DPI, the V2 can connect to devices via Bluetooth or using the included 2.4GHz wireless USB dongle.
