Jumbo TVs, two older iPhones, Google Wi-Fi and a gaming laptop for cheap.

Below are the five best deals from a sale that truly runs the gamut. There are a few big TVs, a pair of slightly older iPhones, a Wi-Fi system and a gaming laptop. Truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Sharp Roku 58-inch 4K TV: $398 (save $100)
Sarah Tew/CNETThe 65-inch TCL 4-series is already sold out, but Walmart still has the 58-inch Sharp version for about $400. We haven’t reviewed that specific model, but we love the simple interface and extensive streaming app support of the Roku smart TV operating system that powers both models.
Apple iPhone 6S: $199 (save $100)
CNETApple stopped selling the iPhone 6S in September, but Walmart has the 32GB edition for $199 — with a prepaid plan from Straight Talk or Total Wireless. That’s $250 less than the least expensive model in Apple’s current lineup, the iPhone 7. And the iPhone 6S (and 6S Plus) have one great distinction: they’re the last iPhones to have a built-in headphone jack.
Apple iPhone 6S Plus: $299 (save $100)
Josh Miller/CNETSimilar deal here with the iPhone 6S Plus, now selling for $100 off with a prepaid plan from Straight Talk or Total Wireless.
MSI GF63 gaming laptop with Intel Core i7: $900 (save $260)
Aloysius Low/CNETMSI’s lightweight and attractive GF63 usually starts at $999. But Walmart has it for $100 less — and it’s been powered up to include an eighth-gen Core i7 CPU, 256GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive. The Nvidia graphics card isn’t the newest version, but the overall package delivers solid value for anyone playing, say, Fortnite or Apex Legends.
Google Wifi: $100 (save $20)
Josh MillerHands-down, this is the best Wi-Fi system on the market. Easy to use, a breeze to set up, Google Wifi delivers wide coverage and fast speed. It was cheap before this discount — at $100, it’s a no-brainer. The smarter play for anyone with a decent-sized house, though, is to get the 3-pack for $249. (It’s widely available elsewhere, including Amazon, at the same price.)
