Discounted MacBook Pros, Amazon devices, and a GTX 1080 Ti bundle are this week’s best dealsAugust 18, 2018
This upcoming week feels like the last big back to school push from retailers. We’re seeing Amazon devices drop down to near-Prime Day 2018 prices. Bose noise-canceling headphones, which are excellent study buddies, have had enjoyed a week-long $50 discount. There’s a whole lot more to see, whether you’re looking for portable tech or gear to fill out your entertainment center.
Starting with a big deal on a high-end graphics card, B&H is offering a discount on the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti by way of a $999 bundle that packs in a computer case, modular PSU, motherboard, liquid cooling system, and more. This card’s dominance in the GPU pack will likely be toppled by Nvidia’s own Turing cards that are expected to be unveiled next week, but it’s still a decent deal if you’re looking to build a new PC.
