You've probably heard a lot about mechanical keyboards in the past few years, and one of the best models on the market is on sale right now.

Most mechanical keyboards are marketed towards gamers, but Das Keyboards are a typist's dream. Their newest, the Das Keyboard 4, is only $120 for a refurb right now, a significant savings off of the usual $169 price tag. You even get to choose from either the Professional or blank key-sporting Ultimate, as well as Cherry MX Blue or Brown switches.

While the key caps differ between the two models, they both have the same core feature set.

  • Media controls with oversized volume knob
  • Two-port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed hub
  • Anodized aluminium top panel
  • Full n-key rollover
  • Gold-plated mechanical key switches

As for the switches, Lifehacker has a great explainer on the different options, and you can also buy an inexpensive sampler to try all of them yourself. I prefer the obnoxiously-loud Blue switches myself, but Browns are more popular among gamers, and a bit less clicky. [Woot]

With 250 hours of battery life on a single set of AAs and 250-2500 adjustable DPI, the Logitech G602 is a great all-around mouse for the gamer on the go. This model has an excellent 4.4 star review average on Amazon, and the G series was also one of your nominations for best gaming mouse, so you can buy it with confidence.

Amazon has it for $50 right now, which is within $5 of the lowest price we've ever seen, so crank up your DPI and put it in your cart on the double. [ Logitech G602, $50]

Your MacBook is an elegant piece of machinery; it deserves better than a cheap plastic USB hub. Luckily, Anker designed a few options that look like they could have come bundled with the laptop, but they sell them for decidedly non-Apple prices.

While I take issue with the blue USB ports, this is probably the closest thing you'll ever see to a USB hub that could have come out of Cupertino. The 7-port version is on sale for $26 with code OCASGFZC today, but the 4-port model is a solid buy at $14 as well. And yes, before you ask, they'll work just fine on Windows, but it's pretty clear who Anker's aiming for here.

The Windows 8-packing, Intel Atom-powered HP Stream tablet is only $79 right now, which is a tremendous price if you have any use for a cheap little Windows tablet. It's the bundled bonuses that really make this deal intriguing though:

  • 1 Year of Office 365 Personal ($70 Value)
  • $25 Windows Store Gift Card

These pack-ins are only really useful if you're bought into Microsoft's ecosystem, but if they're things that you'd buy anyway, you can actually save money on them, and get a free tablet too. [HP Stream, $79]

You'll have to deal with a mail-in rebate, but this is still the best DualShock 4 deal we've seen since Black Friday. [ Sony DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, $30 after $30 rebate]

It's been a great couple of days for gift card deals, and the party continues with this $50 Fandango card for $40, courtesy of Amazon. All you have to do is select $50 from the dropdown menu, and your discount will show up automatically at checkout. Enjoy! [$50 Fandango Gift Card, $40. Discount shown at checkout]

We've seen a few deals on 4-port USB car chargers, but this one puts the ports on the end of a cord, so it has a little more flexibility in positioning. [Saicoo 8A/40W 4-Port Rapid Car Charger, $12 with code C4DINDMJ]

These flexible clamps can turn your iPad into a handsfree bedroom TV, an out-of-the-way kitchen tablet, or even an extra screen for your desktop.
