Gadgets You Missed on Labor Day, but You Can Still Try to Buy

If you missed the Labor Day sales, it's not the end of the world. It's just the end of summer.

The good news is that this is the season of sales. Retailers are already pricing their goods for holiday discounts.

With tech gadgets, time is especially on the lawyer's side. That's because new tech drives prices down, even as old hourly rates go up.

Year-End Deals

Mashable already did everybody's gadget-buying homework. The company follows tech like flies on horses.

We just looked for the lawyer deals. We follow them like lifeguards look for sharks.

Here's a sample:

  • HomeSpot USB-C Hubs for MacBook Pro
  • iPM 2-in-1 Wireless Charger
  • evaSmart Personal Air Conditioner
  • TRELAB Z2 Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones

True tech-types often shop in their sweatpants -- usually online but sometimes in-store. It's about knowing when it's appropriate to go.

Last Year's Blowouts

Last year's tech is still fresh, and it's generally cheaper this year. Here's FindLaw's "might want" list from 2017:

  • LegalBoard keyboard
  • Amazon's Echo and Google Home
  • Dual monitors by any brand

Multiple monitors, by the way, may be the cheapest way to improve your productivity and look very cool while doing it. Insignia sells new 19-inch LED screens for about $60; Lenovo sells refurbished ones for the price of a gourmet burger.
