We’ve said the Google Home is better than the Amazon Echo in “almost every way,” so adding one to your smart home always comes on high recommendation. But today, if you buy one for $129 at Best Buy, you’ll also get a free Google Home Mini, a savings of $49 from its list price.

The Google Home brings the smarts of the excellent Google Assistant into a sleek smart speaker. You’ll be able to search, check the weather, play music, control other smart devices, and more with just the sound of your voice, aided by a high-quality sound and a sensitive microphone. We gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 for its smart assistant and all-around stellar performance.

The Google Home Mini is a compact version of the standard Google Home. It’s a great extension to control your smart home from anywhere throughout the house. Although it's not quite as good as the Echo Dot that works with Amazon's full-size Echo, we still love its attractive design and use of Google Assistant, as well as its low price—though getting it free makes it even better. We gave it 4 stars out of 5.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
