Normally about $250, weighs 4.5-pounds, and has an 8-hour battery.
It has an Intel Celeron processor.
This low-powered processor consumes very little power, however it is a slow-performing processor.
The processor, along with its 4GB of memory, should run most modern applications but will struggle with complex applications such as Photoshop, Premiere, and engineering tools.

This could be a good gift idea for someone who likes to draw.
It is a set of 6 Sakura Pigma Micron Ink Pens of varying thickness for $7.83.

When you do, Amazon will also send you a free digital HD copy of the Kung Fu Panda movie (normally $8 by itself).
This may only work if you select "no-rush shipping" and you may not get the credit if you use faster shipping.
Limit one per Amazon account, so if you already got your free streaming HD copy of Kung Fu Panda, you cannot get another.
- Anker 10,400mAh Portable USB Battery Charger $16
$20, and code B32MMKCP applies $4 off during checkout.
Be sure to apply the code before placing your order, because they cannot apply it once your order is submitted.
The code applies toward the Black model only (not the White).
Bring this when you travel, charge it at night, and it can keep all your mobile devices powered without having to find a power outlet.
It weighs about 9 ounces (about 0.55 pounds).
The 10,400mAh battery capacity can fully charge an dead iPhone 6's battery at least 5 times, or an iPad Mini 4 about twice.
- 2-pack Retractable Apple Lightning Cables for $13
Lightning cables power most Apple devices, including iPhone 5 and up, iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Mini, and iPad 4 and up.

Friday, December 4, 2015
- OralB SmartSeries 7000 Electric Toothbrush for $100 (expired)
Oral-B Black 7000 SmartSeries Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush with Bluetooth for $100 with free shipping.
We have an older version of this toothbrush, and love it.
As for the Bluetooth device, we found it not that useful, but the quality of the Oral-B makes it well worth the price.
In our opinion, this is the best UPS available for home offices and small offices that run sensitive computer equipment.
A battery backup (UPS) activates instantly when the electricity goes out or fluctuates.
This "pure-sinewave" ensures the power is as pure as possible when operating on battery, as shown in this video.
If you run a fileserver, work computer, or important electronics, definitely consider this thing for protection.
In our 25 years of experience working with computers, we found power spikes/fluctuations to be the #1 cause of hard drive failures.
We have one of these UPSs protecting a file server with 6 hard drives since 2010, and never had a problem.
- 1-Year of Kindle Unlimited $81, 2 Years for $144 (expired)

- 7 Wonders Board Game for $23

It has very positive reviews, and here is a how to play video.
It has a lot of rules, but looks like a fun strategy game.
Normally sells for $31 and up.
- Panasonic Flash Xpress Toaster Oven $74
This toaster has over 1,000 positive reviews and normally sells for around $120.
- Kindle eBook Reader $50, For Kids $70
As expected, Amazon and Best Buy expired the $25 and $35 Fire TV Stick deals and some of the Fire Tablet deals.
However the Kindle, Echo, and many of the Fire HD deals are still available.
The Kindle has a true LCD display that does not emit any light, so it is as easy to read as a book printed on paper.
Note that all tablets, phones, and the Kindle Paperwhite do emit light right into your face, so it can be harmful to your eyes when staring at them for long periods of time, especially in dark rooms.
If you want to read books, we strongly recommend a regular Kindle (not the paperwhite) to help avoid potential eye issues such as eyestrain.
- Amazon Fire TV Stick for $25, Kindle for $50

You can still order them directly from Amazon, but many are backordered until the middle/end of December.

Amazon Prime members already get unlimited photo storage through Amazon, so if you have Prime and only want to backup photos, you already can at no additional cost.
Amazon Cloud is cheap and good for syncing your files across your computers.
However It does not let you stream your music like other cloud services do.
In comparison, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive cost more but allow your files to share easily among your work teammates.
Dropbox also costs more, and works well for sharing large files.
- Pillow for $18 to $40
The two top-selling bed pillows on Amazon are on sale today.
All have excellent reviews, and most other stores will charge at least twice these prices.

They do it every year, about a day or two before Thanksgiving.
- Car Dash Camera $48
Today, a third party seller on Amazon is selling a windshield/dashboard car camera for $48 with free shipping.
The reviews are fairly positive, not great, but good for the $48 price.
It normally sells for $50 to $60.
It includes a 16GB MicroSD memory card, capable of about 4 hours of video recording, and supports up to a 32GB MicroSD card of Class-10/UHS-1 (sold separately).

Each of these usually sell for 50% more.

- 11 Glass Storage Containers for $30 (expired)
This Rubbermaid Glass Food Storage Set includes 11 glass containers, each with lids.
It has three of 1-cup, 1.5-cup, and 2.5-cup containers, as well as a 4-cup and a 5.5-cup container.
Each of the 11 glass containers come with a plastic lid.
Most similar packs of 11 glass containers would sell for at least $45.
Glass containers are more safe than plastic containers for several reasons:
Glass can safely be used for hot foods or liquids.
Over time, plastic can deteriorate and leach potentially harmful chemicals into your food.
Glass does not.
However, glass can break when dropped, making plastic a better choice for transporting food.
Choose your containers wisely.
Our suggestion is always use glass when you can, to lessen your risk to the environment and to your health.

It normally sells for about $1000.
The reviews are very positive, calling it one of the best home theater projectors available today.
The biggest complaint is the $1000 price being too much, since
other similar non-3D capable 1080p projectors go for around $800.
But at $750, this is a hot deal.
