The single best Cyber Monday Chromebook deal is right here

While there are dozens of Black Friday Chromebook deals to choose from today, there are few deals that are universally great for anyone and everyone. So whether you just want to try out Chrome OS and see what all the fuss is about, you need a starter Chromebook for your kid, or you just want a tablet that'll stay updated for seven years and looks great for Netflix and Disney+, Lenovo has the only Chromebook deal you need.

You might not have ever heard of the Lenovo 10e, but I guarantee you've heard of its prettier, two-tone twin: the Lenovo Chromebook Duet. The 10e shares the same steady performance, great screen quality, and portable size as the Duet, but the shell and the glass have been ruggedized, and the price has slashed dropped 65 to 70%.

Lenovo 10e Chromebook Tablet (Save up to $265)

This is the classroom-tested version of the Lenovo Chromebook Duet, with a 400-nit, 1,920x1,200px touchscreen, long battery life, and unlike the Duet, this version still has a headphone jack. You can buy just the tablet for $99, but I recommend grabbing the keyboard bundle for $139 for a better out-of-box experience.

From $99 at Lenovo

Rather than a Gorilla Glass touchscreen, the Lenovo 10e uses Dragontail Pro, a popular alternative to Gorilla Glass that boasts 30% better resistance to corner drops, which is essential to a Chrome tablet with edge-to-edge-glass. Rest assured, the screen is still 400 nits brightness for easy visibility outside in the shade. Of course, 400 nits will still wash out in direct sunlight, but for $99, this screen puts most Chromebook screens under $400 to shame.

Another significant upgrade is that rather than having to rely on Bluetooth headphones, you can plug in good, old-fashioned wired headphones or earbuds when you're on a Netflix binge or listening to a video call. One of the few drawbacks of the Lenovo Fuet is that the speakers weren't very strong, so headphones are essential for YouTube marathons.

You still have access to all your favorite Android apps through Google Play, but unlike Android tablets that are slow to receive updates (and receive 3 to 4 years of updates at most), the Lenovo 10e will get monthly system and security updates direct from Google until June 2028, its AUE date. This means that if you take care of it, this compact tablet could last you for almost a decade.

Lenovo sells the tablet by itself or in a bundle with the kickstand folio case, and I highly recommend buying the case bundle, as it's getting harder and harder to find aftermarket. While Chrome OS is getting easier and easier to use tablet-only, it's still best when connected to a keyboard, given all the keyboard shortcuts you can take advantage of.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent. So, whether you have picked up one of the best phones for kids or maybe a tablet like the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD that has Google's Kids Space for your child, here&#

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
