Surface Pro 9 Drops to All-Time Low – Over $500 Off!
I used to think the Microsoft Surface Pro was a niche device, lacking the versatility of an iPad or MacBook. But Windows has matured, and now the Surface Pro 9 nicely bridges tablets and laptops. If I needed a new one, Best Buy’s deal for $999 might convince me.
Usually with 2-in-1 devices, you lug around a keyboard even for tablet use. But the Surface Pro lets you detach the keyboard when desired. Despite the 13-inch screen, the tablet itself remains slim and lightweight with a balanced build. For creativity, you can use styluses like the optional Surface Slim Pen 2. And the keyboard easily reattaches magnetically for typing intensive tasks.
Downsides include lack of ports and awkward “lapability” with just the built-in kickstand. But as a versatile middle-ground device, the Surface Pro 9 tempts me even years after my initial skepticism.
For audio, the translucent Beats Studio Buds Plus appeal through intricate design. Woot now offers refurbished pairs for $89.99 in like-new condition—$80 off retail and $10 more than the all-time lowest price. Woot includes a 90-day warranty.
The Beats Studio Buds Plus deliver better sound and noise cancellation than the originals. They fall slightly short of Apple’s AirPods Pro in sound quality and features like spatial audio. But with improved call performance from upgraded microphones, they remain appealing for Android and iOS users alike.
So if you appreciate headphones as miniature showcases of technical craftsmanship, the translucent Beats Studio Buds Plus offer solid quality with unique style for less.
