Best Prime Day laptop deals: save $300 on Surface Pro 7, get an Acer Spin 5 for $900 and more

Laptops and tablets are a big part of the Amazon Prime Day deals mix, and will continue to be so through Black Friday and the entire holiday shopping season. That’s in part because nearly every remote learning student and work-from-home adult needs their own device now, so the sheer number of PCs needed per household has gone way up. There’s a huge variety of devices on sale right now, including two-in-ones from Acer and HP, gaming laptops from Razer and a dual-screen laptop from Asus.

Don’t worry if none of these are the laptop for you. We’re expecting more to go on sale over the next few days during Prime Day and from other retailers like Best Buy, Newegg and Walmart, and we’ll be updating this list with new choices from Amazon and others.

If you’re new to cruise vacations, you may wonder about cruise fares that are labeled “cruise cabin guarantee.” What does that mean, and can booking a guaranteed cabin save you money or help convince the upgrade fairy to visit you? Let’s find out.

Cruise cabin types and categories

Let’s start with the basics. When you look at cruise fares, you’ll see that they can vary widely for the same itinerary. The price differential is due to the cabin type you select. An interior stateroom with no windows will generally be much cheaper than a similar cabin with a balcony or one of the ship’s

How I used points and miles to save over $6,000 on a last-minute trip to Europe

Last month, I had to book a last-minute round-trip ticket to Prague for a family matter. Despite the country being closed to Americans due to coronavirus, I was able to enter with my Czech passport as I’m a dual citizen. Current travel restrictions mean fewer airlines are offering U.S. to Europe flights right now, so fares can be all over the place. Some days fares are super cheap while others are extremely expensive.

Unfortunately, the latter was true in my case. I was searching for flights four days before departure. Flights with one-stop were pricing at $6,400 round-trip in business class, which was way outside of my price range.

This is similar to how last-minute flights to Europe

To save the season, NFL, NFLPA should agree to put all teams in hotels now

On Tuesday morning, with three weeks and 48 games of the 2020 NFL regular-season in the books, it looked like the NFL had cracked the COVID code. By Tuesday night, everything changed.

From the the outbreak of the virus in Tennessee to the images of maskless stupidity in Las Vegas, what had seemed to be a sure thing quickly became tenuous and uncertain. The constant drip of stray positives pushed the Steelers-Titans game to Week Seven, a quick fix that won’t be quite as easy once bye weeks have come and gone.

The options for making up games will become limited after teams have their byes, with the addition of an extra week or two of the regular season perhaps being the only way to salvage games that get scrapped by new outbreaks — or if the situation in Nashville ultimately postpones the Bills-Titans game that is due to start

A Climate Change-Ravaged Planet Tries To Save Itself

The most consistently compelling thing about 2067 is star Kodi Smit-McPhee’s face itself. The kid from The Road is all grown up now, with striking, deep-set blue eyes set so wide across his face that he looks a little bit like Sid the Sloth from the Ice Age movies, reimagined as a male model, with an impossibly long neck and pronounced Adam’s apple giving him a condor-like quality.

He seems futuristic or otherworldly, which fits in 2067, set in a fittingly depressing vision of the future (are non-bleak futures even possible to imagine in 2020?) in which climate change has killed all of Earth’s plants. This has lead to an oxygen shortage, and the artificial oxygen the world’s remaining humans have been forced to subsist on is causing a mystery sickness. Wow, climate change and a pandemic? What an imagination, writer/director Seth Larner! (Do you think he hired Kodi
