Viewsonic XG2402 Gaming Monitor
REG $269.99  |  CYBER MONDAY $219.99 at Amazon, Office Depot and BestBuy

TV and regular desktop monitors don’t do justice for gamers, but this made for gamers Viewsonic XG2402 monitor does. Cyber Monday is the best price yet for gaming monitors like this one. ViewSonic XG2402 is a gorgeous 24-inch 1080p monitor with extraordinary resolution all features gamers need. It’s got 144Hz refresh rate w/ AMD FreeSync technology and you can spin the monitor around to do portrait or landscape mode.

Relay Walkie Talkies
REG $99  | NOW $49 and extra 15% off for Cyber Monday

Relay is a screen-free smartphone for kids – it’s as easy to use as a walkie talkie, but has nationwide range so it works everywhere. Don’t want your kid addicted to screens? Relay was developed for kids so parents don’t have to give in to the pressure of getting cell phones too early – and still have a way to stay connected.  It’s important the Relay is actually something kids actually want and love. That’s why there are Channels – like apps for your Relay that offer fun features like music, translate (translate what you say from English to Spanish), a voice-changer, and more being released all the time. There is a free app for parents so they can talk directly to their kids on their Relays through their smartphones – and they can see where their kids are through GPS functionality.

At first glance I thought these were for kids, and they are, but they are also valuable technologies for staying in touch with seniors and communicating with teams.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2
REG $1599.99  |  CYBER MONDAY $1299.99

The Surface Laptop 2 is powered by the 8th gen Intel Core processor.  What that means is more speed and performance from the latest chipset in a sleek, ultra slim laptop design that weighs less than 3 pounds with up to 14 and 1/2 hours of playback battery life. The 13.5 inch pixel sense display is spectacular.

Roku Ultra
REG $99.99 |  CYBER MONDAY $49.99

The Roku Ultra will be $50 off the usual $99.99 MSRP at major retailers nationally through Cyber Monday, November 26. The Roku Ultra is Roku’s most powerful and feature-packed player great for heavy streamers, living rooms and primary TVs, or even home theaters. It features a clear and immersive picture for HD, 4K and HDR content, an enhanced voice remote with TV power and volume buttons and a headphone jack for private listening, premium JBL headphones (valued at $39.95 MSRP), a USB port for local playback and much more.

REG $299.99  |  CYBER MONDAY $199.99
