Get a refurbished Google Pixelbook hybrid for 600

first_imgAlthough the pen isn’t included, the 2-in-1 Pixelbook offers a lot of Chromebook power. James Martin/CNET Welcome to 2019, cheeps! Hope you had a wonderful holiday. As we jump into the new year, I wanted to remind you that there are lots of ways to keep tabs on Cheapskate deals:On the web, natch. Bookmark it!On Flipboard. If you don’t already use this app, I highly recommend it.In your favorite RSS reader. Yes, RSS is still a thing. This is the Cheapskate RSS feed.Via the Cheapskate newsletter, which you can sign up for in your CNET profile by clicking the Subscriptions tab or by visiting my CNET profile and clicking Follow Rick’s Newsletter.On Facebook and Twitter, where I often share bonus deals, updates, recommendations and other quick-hit goodies.Speaking of quick hits, coming soon to an inbox near you: an afternoon edition of the Cheapskate newsletter. This is an experiment, and it probably won’t be a daily thing, at least at first. The idea is to provide updates (like when the morning deal sells out quickly or I need to give you a new promo code) and late-breaking extra deals (those that come in after I’ve already published the morning newsletter).The afternoon edition will be short and easy to scan — basically an inbox edition of what I often share on social media. Stay tuned for updates on this, probably within a couple weeks.Pixel pusherOn to business! Have you often wondered whether your next laptop should be a Chromebook? Maybe you’ve had your eye on Google’s Pixelbook, a premium model with a decidedly premium price. News • New Google Pixelbook devices reportedly in the works See It Comments 8 Mentioned Above Google Pixelbook $999 Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Walmart Today, you can save a whopping 40 percent — provided you don’t mind going the refurb route. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the certified-refurbished Google Pixelbook 12.3 for $599.99 shipped (plus tax). Regular price: $999.See it at Best BuyI’m sure I’m not alone in thinking, “$1,000 for a Chromebook? Um, no.” Because Chromebooks are supposed to be cheap, right? Indeed, many an entry-level model can be had for $200-300.But the Pixelbook is anything but entry-level; it’s as well-appointed as many premium Windows laptops. You get an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive and 12.3-inch touchscreen.That screen delivers an impressive 2,400 by 1,600 pixels, and it resides on a 360-degree hinge, meaning the Pixelbook can handle tablet mode, tent mode and all that. Alas, taking a page from Microsoft, Google doesn’t supply the Pixelbook Pen; that’ll run you another $100.I haven’t used one of these myself, so I’ll turn you over to CNET’s Pixelbook review. Verdict: “A great everyday work machine,” but hard to justify at $1,000.Much easier to justify, perhaps, at $600? The catch, of course, is that because it’s a refurb, you get only a 90-day warranty. Assuming you can live with that, this a premium Chromebook (thin, light, powerful) with a mid-range price tag.Your thoughts?kingston-a400-240gb-ssd-packagedAdd this blazing-fast drive for a measly $31. Kingston Bonus deal: If you’re still trying to squeeze some extra life from your existing laptop, consider the best upgrade in the history of upgrades: a solid-state drive (SSD).Like this one: For a limited time, and while supplies last, the Kingston A400 240GB SATA3 SSD is just $31.35 when you click the onscreen coupon. Regular price: $40.See it at AmazonTo use this, you’ll have to make sure your laptop can accommodate a drive of this size (and interface). Most likely it’ll mean replacing your existing drive, which means you’ll have to clone it first — and Kingston doesn’t supply the necessary cables or software.But with a little online research (or a knowledgeable friend), you can accomplish that for cheap or even free. Trust me when I say, once you go SSD, you’ll never go back. The performance difference is that big.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

Germany makes it easier for manufacturers to offer diesel emissions fixes

first_imgEnlarge ImageAs diesel bans loom, the German government is trying to make it easier for older vehicles to meet newer emissions standards. picture alliance/Getty Images Typically, getting vehicle modifications approved for use on public roads in Germany is a long, drawn-out and expensive process but according to a report published Friday by Reuters, the German government could be easing that process to help get diesel vehicle emissions retrofit parts out as soon as possible.While Germany speeding the release of these parts sounds like a good thing, issues remain. For example, Volkswagen is willing to spend up to $3,431 per vehicle to upgrade its engine management system to help clean its emissions but it’s not clear that this would bring the cars into compliance.Daimler and the Volkswagen group have agreed to cover some of the costs for consumers to retrofit their older diesel vehicles, but that will still require owners to spend what is likely to be a hefty chunk of change.BMW isn’t even pitching in for the cost of updating its out-of-spec vehicles. Instead, it’s offering incentives toward the purchase of a new vehicle for those who trade in their older diesel because the company says the cost of retrofitting would be too high and take too long to develop.As more of the world’s major cities seek to ban diesel-powered vehicles from their centers, others look to ban the sale of internal combustion-powered vehicles entirely; automakers may be on a bit of a ticking clock even as car buyers help pay the price. 2017 BMW X5 xDrive35d is a diesel-powered road trip machine More From Roadshow 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Audi BMW Mercedes-Benz Porsche Volkswagen 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Share your voicecenter_img Comment 25 Photos Car Industry Diesel Cars 1 Tags Volkswagen BMW Mercedes-Benzlast_img read more

iPad Pro 129 LTE 599 Update Sold out

first_img Motorola Moto phone saleMotorola’s Moto phones offer prodigious bang for the buck. Today: same bang, fewer bucks. A whole bunch of Moto phones are on sale, everything from the entry-level E4 Plus ($129.99) to the newer Moto G6 32GB ($159.99, even though the main promo page shows $199.99). See them at MotorolaThe Moto line has “Cheapskate approved” written all over it. Broadly speaking, you get a great set of features in phones that come unlocked and carrier-agnostic: They’re compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks, meaning you can use them with pretty much any US carrier.One thing, though: Many of Motorola’s sale prices are mere matches for the everyday prices offered on Amazon, though some of those prices are for Prime subscribers only. But there are a few better deals, like the Moto Z2 Play for $200. Amazon’s price: $239.Read more: The best phones for 2019CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

Apple Good morning, cheeps! A couple quick housekeeping items to start the day. First, following yesterday’s maddening price-jump on the Acer camera, which happened mere minutes after I posted the deal, I’d like to encourage you to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. That’s the best way to get updates when such issues arise. I also frequently share bonus deals throughout the day!Second, If you happen to live in southeast Michigan, come meet me this Saturday, April 6, at the Plymouth District Library at 10 a.m. I’ll be sharing some of my best money-saving secrets and handing out swag and raffle prizes. (Your chances of winning something: excellent.) Come on out! Bring a friend!As a longtime iPad fan, I’ve definitely experienced a little lust for the iPad Pro 12.9 — you know, the big one. But $999? No way, no how. And that was for the Wi-Fi-only model.Check this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, B&H has the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 with Wi-Fi and LTE (64GB) in gold for $599 shipped, which I believe ranks as one of the best deals ever on this particular configuration.See it at B&HThis is the 2017 model, so it still has a home button and still relies on Touch ID rather than Face ID. Surprisingly, it’s new, not refurbished, which is usually the only way you’d see a price this low.And speaking of that, Apple proper sells the refurbished iPad Pro 12.9 for $589 — but it’s the Wi-Fi-only version. A mere $10 more buys you retail packaging and the LTE option. (That said, Apple’s refurbs are pretty much good as new, right down to the new battery and one-year warranty.)See it at AppleAt this size, and paired with a Bluetooth keyboard, the iPad Pro could potentially take the place of a laptop. And the LTE option is something few laptops have, a boon if you often find yourself “in the field.”I’m not sure how long these will last at this price, so if you think you might be interested, act fast. As we learned yesterday, the best deals often disappear in a hurry.Read more: Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review iPad Pro 2017 review: ProMotion for me!

Notably, it carries the International Docking Adapter-3, which will attach to the ISS to allow future NASA Commercial Crew Program spacecraft to dock autonomously. SpaceX and its Crew Dragon vehicle is part of that program, which aims to once again launch astronauts to space from US soil.Dragon will spend about four weeks docked to the ISS before returning to Earth. SpaceX is contracted to resupply the space station through 2024. The CRS-18 mission may be business as usual, but a rocket launch is always a majestic sight.

SpaceX SpaceX has officially become an old pro at sending cargo to the International Space Station. It added to its resume of successful Dragon spacecraft journeys Thursday with CRS-18, its 18th commercial resupply mission. Dragon was scheduled to launch on Wednesday, but bad weather delayed the attempt until Thursday afternoon.NASA broadcast the Falcon 9 rocket launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, live on NASA TV and SpaceX also provided a webcast. SpaceX successfully recovered the Falcon 9 first stage with a ground landing at Cape Canaveral — a signature move by the company, which hopes to lower rocket costs by reusing components. The Dragon is now in a good orbit, with solar panels deployed, and is scheduled to dock with the space station on Saturday.The CRS-18 Dragon spacecraft looks a little different than previous ones.
