Need a killer gift idea? The 2017 MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar (refurbished) is on sale for $150 off

The holiday season is right around the corner, which means you’re gonna have to start picking out gifts soon. If you’re shopping for someone special and really want to wow them, we have an idea:

Get them a MacBook Pro.

Is that going too hard? Nope. You can snag a good-as-new 13-inch MacBook Pro refurb with a Touch Bar for $1,349 and get free shipping. And listen: No one said you can’t gift it to yourself.

The PCMag Shop is killin’ it with MacBook Pro deals lately — Apple seems to be trying to clear house, possibly to make room for something new. We covered a similar refurb deal two weeks ago, and though you’re not saving quite as much here, $150 off and free shipping is still great.

This is the 13.3-inch model from mid 2017 in space grey — yes, the one with the Touch Bar. That’s a horizontal retina screen that replaces the top row of keys. It’s used to control brightness and volume, use F-keys, browse the web, talk to Siri, send iMessages, and more, as well as activate Touch ID like on the iPhone. All for under $1,350? That’s a steal.

As for nitty gritty specs, the 2560 x 1600 retina display is heavenly, accompanied by an Integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics 650 card. Its speedy Intel Core i5 processor has 3.1 GHz and is a straight powerhouse, especially helpful for heavy creative projects like video editing, graphic design, running Adobe, and similar things that older laptops have trouble handling. RAM is 8 GB, SSD storage is 256 GB, and there are four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports, and a headphone jack. (For reference, a brand new 13-inch Pro with 256 GB SSD costs around $1,800 — $450 more than the sale price of this 2017 refurbished model.)

Before you ask: No, refurbished is not the same as buying a used one from some random person on Facebook. These refurbs were being held by Apple as warranty replacement devices, so they’re essentially like new. But if you still don’t trust that (or are just generally clumsy and paranoid), there’s an easy 90-day return policy in case things go south. You also have the option to upgrade to an extended two or three-year warranty.

Regularly $1,499, you can save $150 and get free shipping here. Whoever you gift this to is going to love you forever.

10 accessories for your new Apple gadgets, all on sale this weekend

Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission.

Image: Monitormate

This year has been a massive one for Apple. They released a deluge of swanky new gadgets that got us all surrendering our paychecks for another top-notch device. They introduced the most talked about iPhone XS, Apple Watch Series 4, the Homepod, a low-cost iPad, and new MacBook Pros. There are even rumors that it doesn’t stop there. They might still debut new iPads and Macs later this month.

If you’re a proud owner of any of these new goodies, then you might want to complement them with accessories that will upgrade your experience, but probably can’t pay a whole lot after purchasing one of the aforementioned devices.

The accessories here work with Apple products and they’re all on sale: 

For iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR

M2 Square USB-C & Quick Charge 3.0 Charger — 26% off

For a phone that costs almost a month’s mortgage/rent, you’d think that it would come with premium charging paraphernalia. But no, iPhones come with a puny 5W charger that juices up your device at a snail’s pace. You can easily remedy that with the M2 Square USB-C & Quick Charge 3.0 Charger. Engineered with a powerful 60-watt USB-C port and a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 port, it delivers next-level speeds, charging your gadgets four times faster than standard charging ports. Compatible with your iPhone, MacBook Pro, and other USB-C devices, this speedy power hub can give you up to 80% in just 35 minutes.

10-Ft Lightning Cable: 3-Pack – 50% off

Apple’s standard issue Lightning cables are notorious for conking out after only a few months. When yours reaches its inevitable demise, make sure you have a backup on-hand for a quick replacement. This set features three cables, each one measuring 10 feet to give you flexibility a.k.a. freedom to move away from the power outlet while you’re trawling through your Instagram story feed.

Ztylus Stabilizer Rig Kit for Smartphones — 26% off

Thanks to the copious amounts of coffee you consume every day, your hands likely get shaky when it’s time to snap a selfie. Save yourself from blurry photos for good with this Stabilizer Rig Kit. Built to work with any smartphone, it offers a secure grip and extended ergonomic stability for snapping picture-perfect shots. It also has a mount on top for attaching accessories like a microphone and lighting, and a 1/4-inch to 20-inch tripod mount at the bottom for putting on top of larger tripods.

Clear TPU Protective iPhone XS Max Case — 66% off

We love the new iPhone XS colors as much as the next person, but we do not recommend using it without a case. Just one slip of the hand can result in a several hundred dollar trip to the Apple Store. If you must flaunt, flaunt safely. This protective case maintains the trendy case-less look all while keeping your device safe from accidental drops. And unlike most cases, this one isn’t a pain to install. It glides on quickly and is easily removable.

Podium-Style Charging Stand — 77% off

Horrified by the number of times a day Screen Time indicates you pick up your iPhone? You can use this charging stand to prop up your device so you won’t be tempted to pick it up a bazillion times as you work. It holds up your phone or tablet at an optimal viewing angle and charges it all at the same time. You can also juice up to two devices simultaneously with the two built-in USB ports.

iPM 3-in-1 Fast Wireless Charging Pad — 62% off

Many were left disappointed when Apple gave no signs of the official release of hotly-anticipated AirPower. But who says you have to wait for that to enjoy the luxury of charging your devices wirelessly? This iPM 3-in-1 pad is a fast-charging powerhouse capable of juicing up two smartphones and an Apple Watch. It tidies up your workspace by not requiring any pesky wires and adds more functionality to your desk or nightstand. 

For MacBook Pro

iMemPro USB-C Hub for Apple MacBook Pro — 40% off

Just like it got rid of the headphone jack on iPhones, Apple also bid goodbye to the trusty USB port on the new MacBook Pros. If you’re suffering from port withdrawal, this USB-C hub will return the ports back to your loving arms. It features all the ports you need to transport data to and from all kinds of devices at lightning speeds — ThunderBolt 3 port, a USB-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, and an SD/MicroSD card reader. You can even output high-resolution to your 4K monitor screens using the built-in 4K HDMI port.

ProBASE HD USB-C Laptop & Monitor Stand — 17% off

They say that a clean desk makes you are more productive. If your current workspace looks like it got run over by a tornado, declutter it with the ProBASE HD USB-C Laptop & Monitor Stand. It raises your MacBook Pro to a comfortable level and has built-in USB 3.0 ports, a 4K HDMI port, and a USB-C data port. This powerhouse even has a side drawer you can use to store flash drives, stationery, and other work essentials.

For the Magic Mouse

MagicGrips for Apple Magic Mouse — 26% off 

The Apple Magic Mouse is touted as one of the best on the market due to its sleek design, multitouch surface, and seamless tracking. But make sure to save yourself from acquiring carpal tunnel with these mouse cushions. MagicGrips provide adhesive rubbers you stick to the sides of the mouse to make for a larger, concave surface on which to rest your fingers. Especially great for bigger hand sizes (although it works for all hands), it also offers a broader grip for enhanced comfort.

For EarPods and Airpods

Earhoox 2.0 for Apple EarPods & AirPods: 2-Pack — 24% off 

The alleged teaser of the AirPods 2 last September revealed that they will most likely have the same design as their predecessor, meaning they will still fall out of your ears when you move around too much. If you own the OG AirPods, EarPods, or are planning to purchase the new version, make sure to use these silicone attachments to create a more snug fit in your ears. Whether you’re hammering it out on the elliptical or headbanging to Nirvana, the Earhoox will make sure that your earphones stay put.

8 of the best laptops for business: See why the MacBook Pro and Lenovo ThinkPad top our list

We are really impressed with the Huawei MateBook X Pro. Yes, it’s an Apple MacBook Pro clone (it even comes in Space Gray), but the laptop is one of the best Windows 10 machines for business and personal use. In fact, it runs Windows 10’s Signature Edition, which means there’s no free trial software or bloatware that you will never use and will only bog down the laptop. It delivers the best and cleanest Windows experience inside of a sleek and sexy design that might actually make you convert from Mac to PC. 
The laptop is one of the most powerful around with its Intel Core i7-8550U processor and Intel UHD Graphics 620 and Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card working together to give you the best performance to get work done (or watch some Netflix to unwind). The machine features an immersive 13.9-inch 3K touchscreen with a resolution of 3,000 x 2,000 in an almost bezel-less display. Moreover, Huawei achieves this 91% screen-to-body ratio with a clever design choice that removes the laptop’s webcam from the top of the display to inside a pop-out in its keyboard. While it’s very astute, it makes for odd viewing angles when in use. It’s a minor flaw, but something that should be pointed out if you are always in video meetings and conference calls.
Overall, the Huawei MateBook X Pro is one of the best laptops for business with its compact and lightweight design at just under three pounds. The laptop also features many ports, including one USB 3.0 port, one USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) port, one USB-C 3.1 port, an HDMI port, and VGA port for presentations. Although it’s battery life is on the average side with up to eight hours of usage time, the laptop is still recommended for travel thanks to its design and durability. The machine  looks really good and will have random people coming up to you to ask “Is that a MacBook Pro running Windows?,” which is not a bad icebreaker or conversation starter for networking and professional mixers.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro starts at $1,169.99 on Amazon.
