Daily Deals: Save On Apple Devices, Including iPads, AirPods, and Apple Watches – IGN
Today, you can save on a handful of Apple products, including deals on an Apple iPad Mini, Apple AirPods, and Apple Watches. And, Amazon has two RTX 3080 video cards priced at or below $1000. However, if you want to grab a prebuilt gaming PC instead of building your own, Lenovo is offering some very high-end gaming PCs at reasonable prices with a new 20% off coupon code. HP also dropped the price on its least expensive RTX 3060 Ti gaming PC, now only $874.99. In other deal news, check out sales on MicroSD cards for your Nintendo Switch, Zelda: Link’s Awakening for $35, and more.
GeForce RTX 3080 GPU for $999
While the price is slightly higher than earlier this week, this is still one of the better prices we’ve seen for an RTX 3080 video card since launch. At this price point, the RTX 3080 is a better value than the 3080 Ti, which costs at least $100 more at reputable vendors. The performance gap between the 3080 and 3080 Ti is about 3%, hardly noticeable. The 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation’s flagship RTX 2080 SUPER. This is the card you want to get if you plan to game at 4K.
The EVGA XC3 Ultra Gaming card boasts a 2.2-slot triple fan cooler (which makes it one of the more compact RTX 3080 options around) and a 1750MHz boost clock speed. The MSI Ventus 3X card features a 2.7-slot triple fan cooling system and metal backplate. The “OC” is very nominal; this card has a 1740MHz boost clock compared to 1710MHz on the 3080 FE.
ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 GPU for $629.99
The RTX 3070 is another card that outpaces the RTX 2080 SUPER. It’s a great card for 1440p gaming, even at up to 144Hz refresh rates, and has the chops to take on 4K gaming as well (although obviously not as proficiently as the RTX 3080). It can easily handle VR gaming.
HP Victus RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $875
This is far and away the lowest price we have ever seen for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU. Once you hit the product page, you’ll have to select “RTX 3060” for $250 and a “500W Power Supply” for $25. You can buy the system as is, or you can choose to add a few more choice upgrades. You certainly have leeway with this super cheap price.
Lenovo Legion 5i Intel Core i5 Alder Lake RTX 3060 Gaming PC for $1119.99
This Legion 5i tower comes equipped with the new 12th generation Intel Core i5 Alder Lake processor. The Alder Lake processors are currently the best gaming CPUs on the market, far superior in performance to any of its predecessors. The only drawback of this new processor is that it requires a new motherboard and (ideally) new DDR5 RAM. Fortunately, both issues are negated when you buy a prebuilt; the Legion 5i tower boasts an LGA 1700 motherboard and 16GB of DDR5 RAM. The RTX 3060 is about 20% faster than the RTX 2060 SUPER and is on par with the RTX 2070. That means it handles 1080p gaming beautifully and has the chops to take on 1440p and VR gaming as well.
Lenovo Legion 5i Pro 16″ Intel Core i7 Alder Lake RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1975.99
Lenovo is offering a high end gaming laptop at a steep discount. The Lenovo Legion 5i Pro is one of the first laptops to host the new 12th generation Intel Core i7 mobile processor. Like its desktop counterpart, this is a significant upgrade from previous Intel i7 generations and one of the best gaming CPUs on the market. The RTX 3070 Ti found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 150W. With this much power the RTX 3070 Ti is essentially on par with the RTX 3080 and even faster in some cases.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3060 PC for $1199.99
The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p. If that’s all you need, you’ll still save almost $200 compared to the price of the RTX 3070 config. It’s paired with a AMD Ryzen 7 5800 processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It’s been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don’t worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Dell G15 15″ RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop
This is the lowest price we’ve seen so far for an RTX 3050 Ti equipped gaming laptop. At under $700 you can’t really find a mobile GPU with more power than the RTX 3050 Ti; it’s a little bit more powerful than the previous generation’s GTX 1660 Ti, plus it offers DLSS support. It should handle 1080p gaming at high settings on most games without a hitch.
CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme RTX 3060 Gaming PC
Currently this is one of the least expensive RTX 3060 gaming rigs we can find. It’s sold and shipped by Amazon direct (not a 3rd party vendor). The best thing about this PC is that it can ship immediately; you can receive it as early as tomorrow.
Razer Anzu Smart Glasses
These Razer smart glasses retail for a ridiculous $199.99. Fortunately, they’re on sale today for a much more reasonable price of $69.99. The Razer Anzu glasses comes with two types of interchangeable lenses; blue-light filtering lenses for PC use and polarized lenses for outdoor use. They also feature a built-in mic and bluetooth speaker for hands-free calling.
50″ JVC 4K QLED Roku TV for $228
Simply put, if you’re looking for a good sized 4K smart TV and want to pay as little as possible, you can’t get better than this. This JVC TV is currently the least expensive 50″ 4K TV you can get, and it even features a quantum dot LED LCD display (QLED) for wide color range and great contrast, and the excellent Roku smart TV interface.
Samsung EVO Select 256GB Micro SDXC Card
Nintendo Switch compatible
This is a great card for your Nintendo Switch storage. The console only comes with 32GB of built-in storage. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example, already takes up 14GB of storage by itself. The Samsung EVO Select is faster than your average Micro SDXC card (including the Nintendo branded ones) so it’s also a great choice for devices that can take advantage of its faster speed, like a phone or camera.
You can also check out the SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB microSDXC Card, which offers less storage at a cheaper price. It’s just $19.99 today, and can add meaningful storage to your Nintendo Switch.
Arcade1Up Street Fighter II Big Blue Cabinet
The Arcade1Up Street Figher II cabinet is a 3:4 replica of the arcade original, making it approximately 4 feet tall. That said, a matching riser is included which raises the height by another 1 foot, giving you the option of both sitting and standing play. Also included is a light-up marquee, light-up deck protector, and matching stool. If you don’t have a buddy around to play with, you can hop onto the live WiFi (no subscription required) to play with other remote Arcade1Up players. A total of 12 games are pre-loaded.
Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening Digital Code
The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening is a fantastic little 2D Zelda adventure, and you can get it for just $35 today. If you’ve been holding out on playing this one because of its shorter runtime, this price point is absolutely worth it to dive into one of the best games on Nintendo Switch.
Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds for $179.95
These Powerbeats Pro wireless earbuds from Beats are a great Apple AirPods alternative, and they are $70 off today. You’ll get up to 9 hours of listening time on a single charge, and over 24 hours with the charging case. The earbuds are compatible with both iOS and Android, working with whatever device you want to use them with. They come in black, navy, and ivory, and all types are on sale today.
LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender
LEGO kits are a blast to build, whether you’re a kid or an adult, and this Land Rover LEGO kit is 20% off today. It comes with over 2500 pieces, and turns into a pretty large LEGO replica of the Land Rover vehicle. It comes with a working steering wheel, a gear section with two working levers, and other features to make it feel like a real car.
Seagate Firecuda 8TB RGB Gaming Hub
You’ll need a traditional hard drive instead of an SSD in order to get 8TB of storage for an affordable price, but you might as well get the fastest hard drive there is. The Seagate Firecuda 8TB Gaming Hub sports a USB 3.2 interface and a performance hard drive that spins at 7200RPM as well as fancy Razer Chroma-compatible RGB accent lighting. It also has USB 3.2 Type A and Type C ports as passthrough. It normally retails for over $200, but Gamestop has far and away the lowest price at only $138.99. Considering the fact that a regular ol’ non-RGB 8TB 7200RPM external hard drive usually costs more than this hard drive, you can see why this is a pretty sweet deal.
10% Off $50 Nintendo eShop Gift Card
Save $5 off any game at the eShop with this digital gift card from Amazon. Use it to pick up rarely discounted favorites like Super Smash Bros Ultimate or Metroid Dread, recent new releases like Kirby and the Forgotten Land or Triangle Strategy, or DLC like the new one for Animal Crossing: New Horizon. Or you can just hold onto the card and use it during the next eShop sale, since it stacks with instant discounts.
First Discount on Elden Ring for PS5/PS4
If you’ve been looking for a game to keep you busy for dozens of hours on end, Elden Ring is your answer. Elden Ring has been critically acclaimed just about everywhere and we also gave the game a 10/10 score here at IGN. Elden Ring is a very difficult game to master and it will test your patience and resolve, just like From Software’s Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls titles.
2021 Apple iPad Mini for $409
This Apple iPad Mini is the 2021 model, and you can get it for almost $100 off today. The 8.3 inch retina screen supports the Apple Pencil, so you can use the iPad to improve your art kills. This is the Wi-Fi model that comes equipped with 64 GB of storage. It has up to 10 hours of battery life on a single charge, and it supports USB C, making it easy to use your favorite charger with it.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds.
Apple AirPods 2 for $99.99
Pick up a pair of Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds for the lowest price we’ve ever seen. These AirPods include a wired case that you plug in via USB Type-C. The AirPods 3 costs around $170 on Amazon right now, and we can safely say that it’s definitely not worth the $70 price premium over this one.
New Apple Watch Series 7 and SE
The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 41mm and 45mm models are heavily discounted on Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG. If the Apple Watch Series 7 is out of your budget and you don’t think you’d make much use out of the health features, the newest Apple Watch SE is also on sale today at the lowest price ever. This affordable smartwatch features a Retina OLED display, Aple S5 chip, optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, and an always-on altimeter.
Acer Predator 32″ Gaming Monitor
The Acer Predator XB323U is a 32″ 2560×1440 IPS gaming monitor with a 1ms response time, 170Hz refresh rate (through DisplayPort), NVIDIA G-SYNC compatibility, and VESA certified HDR600. It normally retails at $800, but Amazon is offering it for $300 off.
ASUS Vivobook 14″ Laptop w/ WQXGA+ OLED Display
This ASUS Vivobook laptop has one of the best laptop displays we’ve seen, especially at this really low price. The 14″ OLED display sports a 16:10 WGXGA+ (2880×1800) resolution with a 100% DCI-P3 color range and Pantone color calibration. It’s paired with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It even has a Thunderbolt 4 port.
OUT OF STOCK
