Even though the holidays are over, there are still some good tech deals circulating online. While we likely won’t see the big discounts we saw in November and December for some time, the deals currently available are worth noting at this time of year. There are a number of Google smart devices on sale, including the second-generation Nest Hub for $60 and the Nest Audio for $75. The Apple Mac Mini M1 is priced at $600 for the base model, while the iPad Air is $60. Here are the best tech deals of the week that you can still get today.
Mac Mini M1
The base Mac Mini M1 is $100 off the sale and an additional coupon, which brings it down to $600. This model runs on the M1 chipset with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

If you’d rather invest in a more powerful version, Adorama has the Mac Mini M1 with 16GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $750, or $150 less than usual.
