Amazon is stacking up the discounts for its Prime Day Deals, so The Mac Observer sifted through the offerings to find some of our favorites. Read on to see what we liked, and remember deals are selling out quickly.
Check out some of TMO's favorite Amazon Prime Day deals
Amazon Echo 28% off (US$129.99). The Echo is a little like a counter top version of Apple's Siri. It listens for your commands, and then does its best to make them happen. It can look up information and report back with what it finds, can control your smart home devices, places Amazon orders for you, and more.
Crucial MX100 512GB 2.5-inch Solid State Drive 28% off ($159). If it's time to replace your laptop's spinning hard drive with a solid state version, this is a great deal. It's also a great option if you need a second SSD drive for your data storage needs.
Fitbit Charge HR 5% off ($142.77). You can track your workouts, heart rate, distance, calories burned, floors climbed, active minutes, steps taken, and sleep patterns with the Charge HR. It doesn't go on sale often, so even a 5 percent discount is a big deal.
Lord of the Rings Trilogy on Blu-ray 77% off $27.99 If the regular price for the LoTR trilogy is too rich for your blood, today's deal should put a smile on your face.
Pencil by 53 Pressure Sensitive iPad Stylus Walnut 25% off ($45). This is a TMO staff favorite for iPad styluses (or is that styli?) because it feels good, balances well, looks nice, and has bonus features in the Paper by 53 drawing app. It works great in other apps, too, but without pressure sensitivity.
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B (1GB) Starter Kit 57% off $55.99 Everything you need to start building your own mini computer comes with this starter kit such as USB and SD card adapters, a WiFi module, the Raspberry Pi user guide, and more.
