Let’s go for the first, most popular product that we’ve seen our readers buying – and surprisingly it’s the older Amazon Echo Dot, down to just $19.99 in the Black Friday sales as Amazon does That Thing It Does and makes any and all of its devices dirt cheap during the sales period.
This is by far the most-bought product we’ve seen, so if you’re looking for a super simple way to get your home smart-enabled, then this is the easy and simple way to do it.
Next up, a Black Friday classic – old faithful, the Roku Streaming Stick 4K. Smartening up otherwise-dumb televisions, its plugs into a HDMI port on your TV and gives you access to loads of streaming services, from Apple TV to Disney Plus, Netflix and more.
They’re always relatively affordable, but Amazon is slashing the price by 42% for Black Friday, bringing the latest 4K model down to an impulsive $29. Don’t be put off by that low price either – Roku sticks are fast, user friendly and worth every penny.
Get creative with your iPad with the latest generation of the Apple Pencil. It’s rare to see Apple-branded gear get significant discounts, but a 23% saving here knocks $30 off the usual price, bringing the stylus down to $99 at Amazon.
Making sketches a doddle (or should that be doodle?), the new Apple Pencil is much improved over its predecessor, with a more reliable battery, and a handy magnetic charging system that keeps the pen safe and powered up.
