Alienware’s previous-generation m17 gaming laptop is usually $1,999.99, but it’s steeply discounted right now from Dell. This 17-inch model houses Intel’s 9th Gen i7 processor (the hexa-core 9750H with a base clock speed of 2.6GHz and a maximum clock speed of 4.5GHz) and Nvidia’s midrange RTX 2060 graphics chip. It also comes with 16GB of DDR4 RAM installed and a fast 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD. One note about the RAM: you can add more if you’d like, unlike the m17 R2 model released in May 2019 that has RAM soldered to the board.

There are a few more reasons to consider this model if you’re looking for a gaming laptop. Its 17-inch QHD (1560 x 1440) display has a 120Hz refresh rate, which means the games that can run smoothly on this machine will look even better than they would on a standard 60Hz monitor.

Fitbit’s Inspire HR fitness tracker is down to $69.99 at Amazon. Usually priced at $99.99, this device offers around five days of battery life before it needs to be charged. Its display offers a minimal user interface (according to The Verge’s Natt Garun in her review, it leaves a lot to be desired vis-à-vis notifications), and its lightweight and discreet design could make it a good fit for you.

You can still save an extra 20 percent on select used and refurbished products sold through Amazon Warehouse. We wrote about this deal last week, but Microsoft Xbox One controllers, smartwatches, and other gadgets are now cheaper than usual.
