Smart home assistants don't just come in the form of a speaker. Plenty of options are available with a screen, which adds even more functionality. One example is the Lenovo 10.1-inch Smart Display in White & Bamboo on sale for $149.99. That's $100 off and just $10 more than the best price we've seen, which last hit in August. If you missed that deal, today's is your best bet. Shipping is free.

This Google Assistant gadget will work for anyone, but it's especially handy if you're already in the Google Home ecosystem and you don't necessarily need something compact. It's also better than a smart speaker if you're looking for the most functionality possible.

The Smart Display has a huge 10.1-inch screen, making it perfect for your kitchen or office. Watch recipe videos on YouTube or stream a show while you work, sans the squinting. The front-facing speakers are loud and immersive, and there's also a physical mute button along with a camera shutter to give you guaranteed privacy when needed. You'll be able to make and receive calls using the built-in front-facing 5MP camera, and the device gives you control over compatible smart home equipment as well. All told, this is a great speaker that requires very little to make a positive impact on your day-to-day routine. You'll just need to provide a Wi-Fi network and an app download to get it working.
