Every techie knows that you can never have enough storage, and the days of bulky external hard drives, which required their own power supply and which only offer one or two terabytes of storage space, are over. Modern portable hard drives like the Western Digital Elements have rewritten the book via external storage. This offers 1 TB of space for all your extras in one package that you can put in your pocket. It's also cheap and only costs $ 50 after the Amazon Memorial Day Sale lowered 40% of its normal price of $ 84.
– $ 60 was $ 90
As great as tablets are, nothing beats reading on an e-reader (except maybe reading an actual book). E-ink displays are simply easier on your eyes than even the best LCD and LED screens when it comes to reading text over a long period of time and when you don't want to pay extra for all the high-end frills E-readers, Amazon's newest Kindle offers you everything you need and nothing you don't need. This new model even has a built-in front light for reading in low light conditions. It's already pretty affordable at its usual $ 90 price, but for the Amazon Memorial Day sale, you can buy this superb e-book reader for just $ 60.
– $ 228 was $ 249
Despite the fierce competition in the market for real wireless earbuds, the Apple AirPods are still king (especially for iOS users) – and the new AirPods Pro are even better. They combine industry-leading sound with excellent noise cancellation for pleasant listening and are just as important that they feel comfortable in the ear for hours. Our review team also found that call quality is very good when used, and they come standard with a wireless charging case. The AirPods Pro are the most expensive AirPods, but with a modest $ 19 discount, you can grab a pair for $ 230.
– $ 299 was $ 399
Smartwatches never started exactly as many expected, except for one: the venerable Apple Watch. This now iconic wearable has followed a unique path in the technology world and is getting better with every update. Series 5 is the latest and almost perfect: it has a beautiful touch display, fantastic battery life, excellent performance and a slim and durable design. It also offers a wide range of fitness and health tracking features for those looking for it. The Amazon Memorial Day Sale saves $ 100 off the $ 399 price and lowers it to $ 299 – the best price we've seen on Apple's best wearable so far.
$ 750 was $ 999
Microsoft offers one of the best Windows 2-in-1 experiences you can buy for its Surface Pro series, and the beautiful Surface Pro X has finally given these devices the updates we've been waiting for. A stripped-down housing and a thinner bezel mean that the vibrant 3: 2 PixelSense touch display is now 13 inches tall. Combined with a Type Cover keyboard, it makes a fantastic 2-in-1 laptop (although you will have to buy it separately). This tablet offers the iPad Pro a serious chance for its money – and for less too, after a $ 249 discount lowered this superb tablet to $ 750.
