The Home Mini is the cheapest way to hook into Google's smart home ecosystem (especially at this price), and also serves as a capable Bluetooth speaker and digital assistant. It's Google Home shrunk down into an adorable little marshmallow of sophisticated electronics, and while it might not deliver the room filling sound of its older sibling, it's a perfect companion for your desk or shelf.
If you're in the market for a cheap, high quality digital assistant (or you already have a budding smart home ecosystem and need a brain to attach it to), this is a pretty irresistible deal. It's also perfect as the center of a family of Chromecast-enabled devices, though at this price it's a pretty easy sale as just a Bluetooth speaker. And for our UK readers, Currys is offering a similar price cut, knocking the Mini down to just £24.
