The back to school season is winding down, but Amazon still has some BTS deal moments to offer. Today only, the retailer is throwing a huge back-to-school sale on PC devices and accessories. In it, you’ll find deep discounts on microSD cards, external hard drives, laptops, monitors, and more.

We sifted through the entire sale to find the best offerings. Here are three of our favorite deals:

The SanDisk Extreme Pro Portable SSD is one of our favorite external drives and is currently the runner-up for our top pick as the best high-performance USB drive. Amazon is selling the 500GB version of the Extreme Pro Portable for $110 today, instead of the more recent $140. This is a fantastic speedy external drive, with a nice rugged looking exterior, and today it’s going for a fantastic price.

Next up is the Acer Chromebook 315 for $175. This is an excellent price for a Chromebook and offers almost everything we like to see. It has a 15.6-inch display at 1366-by-768 resolution, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage. Acer’s Chromebook packs an AMD APU and supports Android apps, as well as Linux desktop apps. This laptop would be perfect if it had 1080p resolution, but at this price we’ll take it as is.

Finally, the Acer Nitro VG271 1080p monitor is $210. That’s nearly $100 below the usual $300 price tag. This gaming-ready IPS panel supports FreeSync, it has a 144Hz refresh rate, and two built-in speakers. Based on AMD’s listings, this monitor supports FreeSync all the way up to 144Hz on both the DisplayPort and HDMI. You won’t find a monitor with specs like this selling this cheap very often. 

These highlights are just the tip of the iceberg though. Be sure to check out Amazon’s huge PC gear blowout to find even more deep discounts on laptops, monitors, storage, mice, and more.
