Apple’s HomePod Siri-enabled smart speaker was never particularly affordable at $349 in the US, but at $240 you could be tempted. That’s what it goes for now on Woot – or rather $239.99. Both the white and space gray color options are available.
Mind you, it’s not new-new, but refurbished, and comes with a 90-day Woot warranty, instead of the usual one year. Additionally, if you’re in Alaska or Hawai (or anywhere outside the US, for that matter) – tough luck, it doesn’t ship there.
The HomePod, announced in the summer of 2017 (how time flies), is Apple’s answer to the Amazon Echo and Google Home. It’s got a total of 6 microphones, a 4-inch woofer, and a 7-unit tweeter array – so it can both hear you from any angle and direct music at you in the best possible way depending on the room features.
