Check out our full review of the M1 MacBook Air.

Even with the new MacBook releases this year, the M1 MacBook Air from 2020 remains a worthwhile part of Apple’s lineup. Most people won’t need the power of an M1 Pro chip for day-to-day tasks — for that, a standard M1 works just fine. Its lightweight design makes it plenty portable, and it boasts about 15 hours of battery life. Best of all, though, is its affordability, especially in a line of laptops known for being the opposite. The lead-up to Cyber Week brought the return to the record-low pricing we’ve only seen a few other times throughout the year. (You can also grab it for the same price from Best Buy(opens in a new tab)).

Just last week, the 10th gen iPad dropped $30, putting it at a new low price, but the record has already been beaten, thanks to this $50 price drop. The latest standard iPad comes with a much-needed redesign, including the landscape front-facing camera. For iPad seekers who really only need the basics, we still recommend the 9th gen iPad(opens in a new tab), which you can grab for over $100 cheaper. If you want a slightly stepped-up entry-level tablet, the 10th gen is available for $50 off at Amazon(opens in a new tab) and Best Buy(opens in a new tab) in every colorway.

Check out Mashable’s official review of the iPhone 13 Mini.

The iPhone 14 will be a hot ticket item this holiday season, but the iPhone 13 is by no means outdated. Its new MSRP is $100 cheaper(opens in a new tab) on Apple’s website, or you can snag a new 13 mini for free if you open a new line at Verizon on an unlimited plan.

To be honest, there isn’t a world of difference between the Series 7 and Series 8 (which follows the trend from the last few Apple Watch upgrades). So, if you’re interested in a model with cellular capabilities but uninterested in a $499 price tag, this Series 7 pick from Best Buy saves you a ton of cash without sacrificing too much functionality. The Series 7 has all the same health features as the Series 8, minus only the temperature sensor and crash detection.

Check out our full review of the AirPods Pro.

The AirPods Pro were some of the first buds to prove that no, you actually don’t need to double the size of your head via over-the-ear headphones to get pretty decent active noise cancellation. That claim to fame originally came with a $250 price tag, but thanks to the release of the new gen and some holiday deals, you can grab them for only $179. It’s not the lowest price ever, but it’s still a decent deal if you’re not willing to shell out the extra $50 for the newer gen.
