The Apple iPhone SE 2022 is an excellent budget iPhone that’s powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chip. The device features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, a 12MP Wide camera at the back, a 7MP FaceTime HD camera at the front, and IP67 water resistance. The Apple iPhone SE 2022 is also protected by Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint authentication system. This particular model of the smartphone is locked to a Straight Talk prepaid plan though, but that may be fine if you want to get this device for this cheap.

For a more powerful tablet with a slightly larger screen, you’ll want the fifth-generation Apple iPad Air with Apple’s M1 chip and a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display. The tablet also features Touch ID and a 12MP Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage, but it supports the second-generation Apple Pencil if you’re planning to use the device for sketching and taking notes. Apple also promises all-day battery life for this M1-powered tablet.

Apple MacBook Air (M1) — $750, was $999


The Apple MacBook Air 2020 is a powerhouse of a laptop, as the M1 chip with 8Gb of RAM enables smooth performance for demanding tasks such as professional-quality editing. The efficiency of the processor also allows the Apple MacBook Air 2020 to go fanless, so it will be extremely silent while you’re using it, while enabling a battery life of up to 18 hours. The 13.3-inch Retina display is simply stunning, and you have ample storage space in its 256GB SSD.

TCL 50-inch class Q5 QLED 4K HDR smart Google TV -- $270, was $400

A 50-inch TV is nothing to scoff at, but one at this price is downright incredible, let alone a QLED that leverages Quantum Dot crystal clear technology. This Google TV also gives you direct access to streaming, as long as you connect it to WiFi, with no other devices necessary. But for video, you get the 4K ultra-HD resolution, at four times that of standard HD, the QLED tech with an UltraWide color gamut for more realistic depictions and motion rate 240 for smooth motion every time. It also supports HDR Pro+, Dolby Vision, and DTS Virtual: X, with AMD FreeSync support to boot. Basically, this is an awesome TV at this price point.

If you want a TV that's as much an art piece as it is a TV, then Samsung's Frame is the way to go. Not only does it have a gorgeous picture, but it can also act like a picture frame and thereby blend into the wall so that it doesn't even look like a TV. Even better, you can get it at a substantial discount from Samsung, with some sizing offering up to $800 off, which is quite substantial.
