While eBay started its life as a platform for individuals to sell their old junk online, these days you can find new and refurbished products from hundreds of sellers. Major stores like Best Buy, Microsoft, and Google even have their own eBay stores.
All of which is to say, that you can often score deals, particularly on older products, by ordering from eBay… and that’s more true than usual at the moment, because eBay is running a site-wide Father’s Day sale.
Use the coupon code PICKDADSGIFT, and you can save 20% on most purchases of $50 or more, although the savings top out at $100.
If you’re looking for a good place to start browsing eBay, check out the site’s Tech Deals page.

The Walmart Direkt-Tek ad doesn’t mention the CPU,
which is a Celeron N3350 1.1 GHz with a PassMark of
1129. Chances are the 2-in-1 doesn’t have the latest
Windows 10 update (which is a big one, possibly
containing Microsoft’s workarounds for the Intel CPU
vulnerabilities, which Intel may/may not be fixing). Expect
the performance, already tepid, to slow down further
after the Windows update is applied. Don’t know how
responsive the active stylus will be after the update.
The Direkt-Tek convertible is Atom Cherry Trail Z8350, not Celeron. Had to look forever to find a spec sheet that confirmed that.
Sorry, not sure where I got that from, but I’ll update the post. That makes more sense given the price.
The Atom x5-Z8350 (which is the proper name of the CPU, if it is
indeed the CPU for the device) has a PassMark of 1282 vs. 1127
for the Celeron N3350. The info about the Celeron is in the
device’s User Gudie. Obviously, the product can have different
CPUs (usually for different model years or markets). Either way,
the device is underpowered.
