Core m3 Pixel Slate now costs just $599, all models are $200 off

Google's first tablet in years, the Pixel Slate, got off to a rough start when it was released at the end of last year. It's the first Chrome OS tablet aimed squarely at consumers, but software issues were widespread especially on the lowest-end Celeron model. Thankfully, the software experience has improved quite a bit since then, and the Celeron Slate is currently MIA. Now you can get the Core M3, Core i5, and Core i7 models for $200 off the original prices at multiple retailers.

The Arlo Pro 2 four-camera kit is on sale for $600 ($200 off) on Amazon

We recently shared a deal that let you save up to $280 on first-generation Arlo Pro cameras. Although the discount was interesting, the product was only capable of 720p video recording, which is a little outdated nowadays. If you passed and waited for an offer on security cameras with crisper image quality, you're in luck, as the second-gen Arlo Pros are currently discounted on Amazon, with a four-pack selling for $600 instead of $800. In case you rushed on last week's deal and are now regretting your purchase, let me ask: Is it too late now to say sorry?
