Apple’s 10th-gen iPad is the spiritual successor to the older ninth-gen model. Though in exchange for its revised design, landscape-oriented webcam, USB-C port, larger 10.9-inch screen, and faster processor, it ditched the headphone jack and got more expensive. Read our review.

The best laptop and computing deals
Apple’s latest MacBook Air sports a 15-inch display and is equipped with Apple’s M2 chip. It features a larger display and better speaker array than the 13-inch MacBook Air from 2022. Read our review.
The new 14-inch MacBook Pro comes in a space black color and is configurable with either an M3 Pro or M3 Max chip. It looks a lot like the previous M2 generation, but spec-wise, the M3 Pro models start with a 12-core CPU, 18GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro remains Apple’s largest laptop for creators and power users. The latest model includes a spec bump to the M3 Pro and M3 Max chips, with a claimed battery life of up to 22 hours, and is configurable with up to 128GB of RAM.
The new 2023 entry-level MacBook Pro with a 14-inch display, M3 processor, 8GB or RAM, and (most) of the good port selection is selling for $1,449 ($150 off) at Best Buy.

The best bang for your buck, the Roomba i3 Evo cleans just as well as the j7 but won’t avoid clutter and doesn’t have app-enabled clean zones or keep-out zones. If you can live without those, you’ll be very happy with this bot. You can also pair it with an auto-empty station for $200 more.
For a great robot vacuum that can mop and doesn’t require a huge auto-empty dock, get the Roborock S8. With dual rubber roller brushes, 6,000 pa suction, and a flat mop that vibrates 3,000 times a second to simulate some good old-fashioned scrubbing, the S8 is a mean cleaning machine. It can sense carpets and lift up its mop and has Roborock’s best AI-powered obstacle avoidance. There’s still no camera, though, so it failed the charging cable test. It works as a stand-alone vacuum or pairs it with an auto-empty dock, but you must manually fill its (sizeable) water tank.
The Roborock S7, the Roborock S8’s predecessor, is also on sale at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart for $359.99 This was our former pick for the best robot vacuum/mop combo before the S8 took its place. The impressive robovac lacks some newer bells and whistles, including AI-obstacle avoidance, but it keeps carpets dry thanks to the mop’s unique lifting mechanism. Read our guide to the best robot vacuums.
A true budget bot with no bells and whistles, just a determination to get the job done. With a 2-hour runtime, decent-sized bin, and tank-like wheels that can get over most large obstacles, the Shark is a good workhorse for a low price. It’s loud and will get tangled on cables, but the app is easy to use, and it works with Amazon Alexa and Google Home for voice and smart home control.
The Shark AI is a cheaper auto-emptying option. It’s a loud bot that’s long on features (including mapping) and short on style but comes at a bargain. It doesn’t use bags, but can only avoid objects if they’re over four inches tall. There’s a mopping version, the Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1, or you can buy it as a stand-alone bot.
Amazon is discounting the Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 to $249.99 ($200 off), which is the lowest price we’ve seen on the budget-friendly robot vacuum/mop hybrid. It’s a little loud and lacks an auto-empty base, however, it makes up for the caveats with good suction, a great app, and a laundry list of features (including mapping).
This is the first sub-$1,000 bot that can do everything, just not quite as well as the top-of-the-line options. It vacuums, mops, self-empties, fills its mop reservoir, and cleans and dries its oscillating mops. It can map, has virtual keep-out zones, and works with voice assistants. But there’s no AI-powered obstacle avoidance, and its single roller brush isn’t as effective as the double ones on the j7 and S8.
