IF YOU’VE MANAGED to snag yourself some time in the great outdoors this weekend, hats off to you. Like the hero of a Gary Paulsen book, you’ve temporarily thrown off the oppressive shackles of indoor life and escaped to the wilderness. For those of you riding out wildfire smoke or heat waves, we feel your pain. As expert as we’ve become at spending time inside our homes over the last year, it gets stale and boring after a while. You may as well make home more tolerable and exciting with a new toy or three. It’s all indoor tech this weekend with deals on smartphones, earbuds, and things with screens.

The Flip is a 2-in-1 notebook, meaning you can use it like a regular laptop with the keyboard and trackpad in front of you or you can flip the keyboard away so to use the touchscreen like a tablet. Senior product reviewer Scott Gilbertson called it the best all-around model in his Guide to the Best Chromebooks.

Now updated with a USB-C port, the Sufrace Pro 7 is still our favorite 2-in-1 Surface laptop. It comes with a 12.3-inch touchscreen and a 3:2 aspect ratio that’s perfect for sharing work documents. It doesn’t say explicitly that it’s a deal, but it’s a similar price at Amazon.

We said the Ryzen 5 model was our favorite powerhouse budget laptop, but this Ryzen 3 version is still pretty good, if a little underpowered. It still has the latest chip, though, so this will work if your computing needs aren’t super-intense.

Senior product reviewer Scott Gilbertson calls this an ideal Chromebook for school. It’s an entry-level Chromebook that converts into a tablet, and it packs an AMD Ryzen 3 chip, 4 gigabytes of RAM, and 64 gigabytes of storage into a metal construction that gives it a nicer feel than the plastic-shell competition.

When it was launched in late 2020, the 4th-generation iPad Air stole a lot of the then-current iPad Pro’s thunder. With Touch ID and Apple’s A14 Bionic chip, this is all the iPad most people will need for web surfing, video gaming, and hobby-level graphical drawing.
