Apple’s new iPad Air 5 delivers M1 performance at second-best price
Amazon is now offering Apple’s latest iPad Air 5 Wi-Fi 64GB for $559 in three styles. Normally fetching $599, this is matching the second-best prices to date at within $10 of the all-time set over a month ago. Apple’s new iPad Air 5 arrives with the same same desktop-class architecture as its other machines thanks to the Neural Engine-backed M1 chip.
Its 12MP Ultra Wide front camera packs Center Stage support, and the 10.9-inch display rocks True Tone, P3 wide color support, and an antireflective coating. Staples from last time like Touch ID in the power button and Apple Pencil integration are onboard, as well. Learn more about iPad Air 5 over in our coverage.
iPhone SE 2 sees 1-day refurb discount down to $190
Woot is discounting a selection of unlocked previous-generation iPhone models in certified refurbished condition. Leading the way this time around is iPhone SE 2 from $190 for the 64GB model. Down from the original $399 price tag, this is one of the first offers of the year and a new 2022 low at $10 under our previous mention.
As the most affordable handset in Apple’s current stable, iPhone SE delivers a familiar form-factor with plenty of notable features. Alongside its 4.7-inch Retina, there’s Touch ID and Apple’s A13 Bionic chip, as well as 12 and 7MP cameras. Includes a 90-day warranty. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.
Synology’s DS220j 2-Bay starter NAS sees first discount of the year
Amazon currently offers the Synology DS220j 2-Bay NAS for $170. Normally fetching $190, you’re looking at the first discount since back in November where it went for $10 less as well as a new 2022 low. While this model originally sold for $170, the ongoing chip shortage raised the standard price, making today’s discount all the more notable for getting in on the always-on storage game.
As one of the more entry-level offers in the Synology stable, its DS220j NAS arrives with two hard drive bays and support for up to 32TB of storage. Ideal for everything from configuring a rountine backup server, playing around with smart home services like Home Assistant, and more, there’s a 1.4GHz processor and single Gigabit Ethernet port to deliver 112MB/s speeds.
