The Lenovo Smart Clock is an outright steal at $35.

Chris Monroe/CNET

The Lenovo Smart Clock is an $80 smart display with a baked-in Google Assistant, which some folks might find preferable to the Alexa-equipped likes of Amazon's Echo Show 5. The latter is currently on sale for $45 (tying an all-time low), but you can do even better on the former: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Lenovo Smart Clock for $35. That's the best deal I've seen (for a non-refurb, anyway).

I have no firsthand experience with this little guy, but everything you need to know can be found in CNET's Lenovo Smart Clock review. Here's the bottom line: "While not perfect at any one task, the Lenovo Smart Clock does a lot of things well enough to be a helpful addition to your nightstand." And remember, that was based on an $80 price tag.


Lenovo also offers a more traditional alarm clock, one that retains the smarts but dispenses with the screen. And it's on sale as well: The Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is just $25 right now, a full 50% off the regular price. Read CNET's Smart Clock Essential preview to learn more
