This model is the top pick in our guide to the best MacBooks. Senior staff writer Andrew Cunningham writes, “The entry-level MacBook Pro has a fantastic screen, a fast quad-core processor, and a reasonable price, though we wish it came with more ports, more storage, and a better keyboard.”
Street price: $1500. This is a nice drop on our top MacBook. It comes with an Intel 8th generation core i5 processor, 8 GB of ram, and 256 GB storage.
The Sonos is the top pick in our guide to the best Multiroom Wireless Speaker System. Senior staff writer Chris Heinonen wrote, “The Sonos One sounds great and is an affordable entry point to the Sonos system. Plus, it’s Alexa and Google Assistant enabled.”
The NutriBullet Pro 900 is the top pick in our guide to the best personal blender. Senior staff writer Lesley Stockton wrote that this model is “powerful, easy to use, and convenient, this personal blender will save time in the morning so you can get on your way.”
The Baggu Canvas Duck Bag is a pick in our guide to our favorite tote bags. Senior staff writer Lesley Stockton wrote that the Duck Bag “can stretch to accommodate your stuff: I like using my Duck Bag for awkward items like my yoga mat or canned items at the supermarket.”
1Password is the top pick in our guide to the best password managers. Senior staff writer Andrew Cunningham wrote “1Password’s apps are attractive and easy to use. Newbies will like its plain-language security recommendations and user-friendly interface, while the technically inclined will appreciate its advanced features and security.”
The Blueair Blue Pure 411 is the budget pick in our guide to the best air purifier. Senior staff writer Tim Heffernan wrote “In a small bedroom, dorm room, or office, the diminutive and affordable Blue Pure 411 performs well and looks great.”
Osmo Coding is the pick for hands-on coding in our guide to our favorite learning apps for tablets and smartphones. Editor Courtney Schley wrote “The Osmo system uses physical game pieces in conjunction with the device’s screen, making scripting and coding tangible and accessible for pre-readers.”
The Edifier S1000DB is the top pick in our guide to the best wireless powered bookshelf speakers. Senior staff writer Brent Butterworth wrote “Despite its reasonable price, the S1000DB powered speaker was our panelists’ clear pick for best sound, and it has the features you’ll need most.”
The Eufy Smart Scale P1 is the runner-up pick in our guide to the best smart scales. Staff writer Rachel Cericola wrote “This Bluetooth scale gives consistently accurate readings, and its app is the most user-friendly of those we considered. But you need to have your phone nearby to record readings.”
The Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven is the runner-up pick in our guide to the best toaster oven. Michael Sullivan and Brendan Nystedt wrote “The Smart Oven maintains temperature remarkably well, but it is slower at preheating, doesn’t toast as evenly, and costs more than our main picks.”
The Braun Series 9 9290cc Electric Razor is a variant of the upgrade electric razor pick in our guide to the best electric razor. Dan Koeppel wrote that “Series 9 [razors are] the top-performing shaver we’ve tried that we find worth the additional expense—at least for certain situations. If you have particularly curly or coarse hair, or wish to shave less frequently but achieve the same level of closeness, this may be the shaver for you.”
Street price: 275. This is a nice drop in price on this electric razor. We recommend the 9095 in our guide but mention that all Series 9 models are essentially the same.
The Simplehuman Rectangular Step Trash Can is the top pick in our guide to the best kitchen trash can. Kevin Pudy wrote, “This smart-looking can does the best job of fitting, hiding, and keeping trash bags in place. It is also easy to clean out and truly airtight, and it has a 10-year warranty.”
The Lenovo Yoga C930 is the also-great pick in our guide to the best Windows ultrabook. Staff writer Justin Krajeski wrote “The Lenovo Yoga C930 is the best laptop that can flip into tablet mode. Its battery lasts all day, and it has a big, 14-inch touchscreen and an included stylus, but its size and weight make it less convenient for everyday use than the Dell XPS 13.”
The Embark Breed and Health Kit is the top pick in our guide to the best Dog DNA Test. Staff writer Kaitlyn Wells wrote “Embark has a comprehensive breed database, screens for more genetic diseases than its rivals, and has reliable customer service.”
The Razer BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 is an also-great pick in our guide to the best RGB gaming keyboards. Editor Thorin Klosowski wrote “If you want more dynamic lighting options or need complex macro recording, get the tenkeyless Razer BlackWidow TE Chroma V2, which is available with Razer’s tactile Orange, linear Yellow, or clicky Green mechanical switches.”
