Today’s best deals: Apple MacBook Air, Razer Blade, Google Pixel, and more

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web includes a fixed price for Apple’s latest M2-based MacBook Air, Google’s value-packed Pixel 6a, and the 15-inch Razer Blade gaming laptop, among other noteworthy deals.

For years, we’ve considered the MacBook Air to be the best Mac for most users. Blending long battery life, sleek design, and good performance, it easily handles most of the basic tasks any user might throw at it.

In our review of the 2022 model, we found that the M2’s processor “makes this one of the most performing and efficient laptops on the market for general information work like browsing the web, working with documents, and jumping on Zoom calls.” It also has a great keyboard and trackpad. For $200, the $999 MacBook Air is a solid deal, though not the lowest we’ve ever tracked it. If you don’t mind going back a generation in processors to the M1, you’ll be perfectly happy handling similar workloads on the 2020 MacBook Air, which retails for $800 right now.

Google’s Pixel 6a is on sale, matching its record low of $339, too. This may be the best value you can get in a smartphone with class-leading processing, cameras, and clean, elegant software running things inside. Elsewhere on the web, we have discounts on the Apple Watch SE, 2022 iPad Air, Samsung SD and microSD, and more. Check out the full curated list below.
