Costco is currently offering its members the Lenovo Smart Display with built-in Google Assistant for $189.99 shipped. That’s good for a $60 discount from the going rate at Best Buy and direct from Lenovo, beats our previous mention by $10 and is the best we’ve tracked. This smart display is based around Assistant, giving you access to Google’s ecosystem of apps as well as Spotify, HBO and more. If you’ve built your smart home around Assistant, this a worthy addition to your roster of devices. It carries a 4.5/5 star rating and we found that it makes a perfect kitchen companion in our hands-on review.

Those searching for a new helping hand around the kitchen may want to consider the $49 Google Home Mini instead. Of course you’re ditching the screen, but you’ll get the same recipe advice, timer functionality and other features as Lenovo’s display.

Lenovo Smart Display features:

With the Google Assistant built in, Lenovo Smart Display is designed to make everyday life easier. Check your morning commute, stream a YouTube video, place a video call, bring up a recipe and more. You’ll operate hands-free, using only your voice to ask questions and give commands. Enjoy a brilliant FHD touch screen, crisp audio, and clean modern design. It’s a smart solution for your home. As you cook up a storm in the kitchen or wait for your guests to arrive, ask the Google Assistant on your Smart Display to pull up a video on YouTube. With the high-definition screen and speaker, everything will look and sound crisp and clear.
