Asus Zenbook UX305
Having trouble finding an affordable, yet powerful laptop wrapped in one beautiful, light package? Look no further. The Asus Zenbook UX305 was rated as one of the best laptops in the world just days ago. This laptop is incredibly thin and light, but that doesn’t affect its quality. Many quality laptops require you to spend $1,000 to $2,000, but you can purchase the Asus Zenbook UX305 starting at around $660. The UX305 also includes a 1080 pixel, glare-free screen and a 256GB hard drive. This laptop offers incredible features and a sleek design for a fraction of the price of competing laptops.

With New Year’s still in sight and your resolutions promisingly posted on the fridge, the Fitbit Charge HR is just in time. While the original Fitbit Charge suited the needs of the health conscious with a range of features, the new Fitbit Charge HR offers PurePulse, which monitors your heart rate continuously. So far, the Fitbit Charge HR is available only through the Fitbit online store, but it will soon arrive in other stores like Target, Sport’s Authority, and Kohl’s. The Charge HR is available for about $150, while the original Fitbit Charge is only $130. It’s very possible that prices will drop for the original Fitbit Charge after the widespread release of the Fitbit Charge HR in stores. That would be the perfect opportunity to scoop up a Fitbit Charge for less money than usual.
Amazon Fire TV
The Amazon Fire TV offers your favorite shows and movies at your fingertips, and for a limited time, it’s $15 off at Amazon. Whether you’re a fan of “Orange is the New Black,” or your children are fans of “Adventure Time,” you can find it on Amazon Fire TV. The box is said to have three times the processing power of Apple TV and Roku, and it offers up 2GB of memory. Amazon calls the Amazon Fire TV your “partner in Prime.” It’s also available for fast and free Prime shipping Amazon Prime members. Stop watching dreary cable, and start watching Amazon Fire TV.
