How we watch movies is one of many things that have changed this year. While you could buy a giant 4K TV and stream Bill & Ted Face the Music, movies on your couch gets old pretty quick. Until we all feel safe to go to movie theaters, a quick way to shake things up is with a portable mini projector that allows you to watch your favorite movies and shows in the great outdoors.
Get outside with the Lenovo M1 smart mini projector on sale for $191.95 at Amazon. To get your $157.05 discount, enter the promo code BESTLENOVO in your shopping cart before you buy it. That makes this the best price we’ve seen on this device that’s become a little hard to come by on other retailers.
After that, you’re on your way to a new world of portable outdoor entertainment. The Lenovo M1 is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and weighs in at just 0.79 pounds. Just find a blank wall or projection screen and connect the device you’ll play from through either a USB or HDMI cable. It also supports WiFi and Bluetooth wireless connections so you can cast select content directly from your phone.
The projector uses its 200-lumen DLP lamp to display images up to 110 inches in size. You only get a 854 x 480 resolution, so don’t expect 4K-quality pictures or even Full HD. But you can’t argue with the portability, and with a battery that lasts for up to three hours it should last for most movies or a TV show binge session.
While it won’t turn your backyard into an outdoor amphitheater, the Lenovo M1 at least provides another excuse to enjoy a quiet family movie night with some fresh air. And for just $191.95 from a trusted brand, it’s more budget friendly than many other high-priced outdoor projectors.
