Best Buy's current weekend offer cuts down on Surface laptops and Galaxy tablets

Google’s mesh WiFi kit with one router and two access points is $50 off, bringing it down to $150 (Amazon’s matching the deal as well). This system came out at the end of last year and it supports speeds up to 1.2Gpbs. Each node covers up to 1,500 square feet, so you’re getting a ton of coverage with this three-pack. While it’s not as fast as the Nest WiFi system, it’s a good upgrade for those who may still be relying on a router from their ISP.

Best Buy is back with a fresh three-day deal that lowers the prices of various electronics, including Microsoft and Samsung laptops and tablets. Through August 15, you can get the Surface Pro 7 with Type Cover for $599 and the Surface Laptop Go with Core i5 for $750. Samsung’s top tablets, the Tab S7 and S7+, are now on sale, while the already low-cost Tab S6 Lite is now $270. Here are the greatest tech discounts we discovered during Best Buy’s most recent weekend sale.

Highlights

  • The base Surface Pro 7 with its Type Cover is down to $599 for this sale, or $360 off its normal price. This model has a Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage — we’d be wary about using a device with 4GB of RAM as your primary device (unless it’s a Chromebook), but this would make a good convertible for those that want a lighter device to tote around with them.

  • The Galaxy Chromebook 2 is down to $449 for the Intel Celeron model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The Core i3 model will set you back $599, but that’s still a decent deal. We gave this laptop a score of 82 for its impressive screen, loud speakers and solid performance.
