Walmart is in Full Mode. The big Walmart ad, linked below, appeared last week – and we put our arms around most of the huge sales shown in it. You can expect massive discounts on tablets, laptops, game consoles, televisions, streaming devices, toys, kitchen appliances, smart home devices, video games, and more. The main event will begin online on Wednesday, November 27th, one day before Thanksgiving, at 7:00 pm. PT / 22 pm ET.
Please note that Walmart also has a pre-sale on Friday, November 22 (more details to follow), offering a wide range of discounted products. Below we have listed the highlights of the currently available features.

When Lenovo unveiled the IdeaPad 330 last year, it launched at $ 500. Now you can get a decent midrange configuration – with a quad-core AMD processor, a 256GB SSD and 8GB of RAM – for under $ 350. Equipped with a sharp 15.6-inch display, the 330s has thinner bezels and an aluminum lid.

CNET did not test exactly this model (RTR3260-W) – and expectations for a $ 120 TV should not be too high – this 720p model features the Roku Smart TV (our Favorite)) and three HDMI inputs. If you are looking for a small TV for the kitchen or the nursery, you can hardly complain about this feature at this price.
With this exclusive Walmart product, including Google's small virtual assistant and Chromecast streaming device, every TV turns into a Smart TV. Connect and use your phone (or voice) to stream Netflix, YouTube, Spotify, Pandora, HBO Now, and thousands of other apps and games.

The price for this model was $ 599 last week – but even for $ 699, this is a good deal for an older version of Apple's iPad Pro. The 10.5-inch iPad was launched in 2017, but the Walmart-loaded configuration (512GB of memory, Apple's A10X processor) will complete the task in 2019 and beyond.

I bought this – actually two – last year for my kids and it was a hit. You will receive a new, small Lego figure or send it 24 days in a row. These are usually sold out.
Most Arcade1Up computers cost around $ 300. This – a three-quarter version of the original – costs $ 170 once it's in your cart. And it looks, sounds and plays just like the old arcade machines. Walmart also offers the Centipede Edition for $ 180.

We've seen this discount come and go. Now it's back. At $ 99, we're big fans of the Ninja Coffee Bar, which offers an unprecedented list of features and capabilities.

We tested the similar Legion Y545 and appreciated its fancy design and great components for the price. The Walmart configuration comes with solid components including an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 GPU.

The Quantum M series delivers superb image quality with deep blacks, accurate colors, and very good 4K HDR performance. And its smart system is phone friendly with Google Cast and Apple AirPlay control.
And Walmart also has the 50-inch model for $ 467, but it's the M7 series that does not quite deliver the same quality picture as the M8. However, it is still a good price.

Are you looking for the other end of the size spectrum? Take a look at this 70 incher from RCA. We did not check it out and this brand is not known for its image quality. But it's a bloody 70-inch 4K Roku TV for $ 550. Supplements can (and will) be made!

The Eufy RoboVac 35C connects to Alexa or Google Assistant over Wi-Fi so you can tell them to clean up and then leave. We have not tested this particular model, which has reduced Walmart by more than $ 200, but we tested the similar 11S Max model (see picture above), which turned out to be a solid performance on bare wood.

Walmart's Largest Deals Arrive on November 27
Most deals are similar or identical to those we've already seen from Target, Best Buy, and other early movers. But Walmart will undoubtedly attract many buyers due to its size and size. These early deals will not be released until next week, but here's a summary of the savings savings over the EIA (unless otherwise stated): and Cyber Monday in 2019
