A couple months ago Geo announced a series of laptops aimed at back-to-school season with at least one version optimized around Minecraft. The laptops were always meant to be inexpensive from the very beginning, but now they're even less expensive if you can believe that. Best Buy has the GeoBooks on sale for up to $100 off with some options going for as low as $169.99 total. These GeoBooks are sold exclusively at Best Buy, so you won't find a better price anywhere else. All of the GeoBooks on sale today are part of Best Buy's deals of the day, so these low prices will expire soon.
This is Ecobee's newest smart thermostat, and it's just called SmartThermostat. The name is annoying, but the product is fantastic. It improves on all the previous generations and includes a whole new design with a glass finish, a vivid touch display, a quad-core processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and far-field voice recognition that can pick up your commands from across the room. Like the Ecobee 4, this one comes with its own smart sensor. And you can add more.
Probably the most interesting laptop in this sale is the GeoBook 120 Minecraft Edition. You can save $10 by getting the regular GeoBook 120, but if you're really into Minecraft or you just sort of want to be, you should go for the $179.99 version of the laptop. This Geobook is Minecraft green on the outside and includes green WASD keys. You'll also get a copy of Minecraft, some bonus content and even a few Minecraft stickers you can use to decorate your new cobblestone collector.
The laptop itself is powered by an Intel Celeron Quad-Core processor, 4GB RAM, and it has 64GB flash storage that can be supplemented using the SD card reader and a good microSD card. It comes with Windows 10 Home in S mode, which is designed to extend the life of the GeoBook, and you get a full year of Microsoft 365. This is, after all, supposed to be a back-to-school laptop so you might actually want to do some work in between mining for diamonds.
