We've waxed poetic about Brother laser printers countless times, but if you're still fighting an old Inkjet at your house, you've got two great options to upgrade today.

Both of these printers support Google Cloud Print and AirPrint, and both use long-lasting toner cartridges, rather than expensive ink. Plus, after factoring in the gift card, both essentially cost $80. The only real difference is the scanner/copier bed on the HL-2380DW, so unless it sells out, or if you need something more compact, that's probably the one to get.

The humble Raspberry Pi has been inspiring clever hacks for years, but it's never too late to pick one up to play around with yourself, especially at these prices.

We've found three great bundle deals featuring the new Raspberry Pi Model B+, which mercifully includes 4 USB ports. For starters, $37 will get you the computer, a Wi-Fi dongle, and even a basic case. Up your spend to $50, and you'll get a microSD card, a nicer case, an HDMI cable, and a power supply.
