Save $450 on a refurbished Apple MacBook Pro (yup, the one with the Touch Bar) on sale at Amazon

If you’re looking for an amazing gift for the holidays, then we found a great one for you. Amazon has the mid-2017 Apple MacBook Pro on sale for $1,549.99. That’s $450 off its list price and a really great deal.

This laptop is a certified refurbished model, but don’t let that scare you. This machine is still a beast for getting work done and staying productive all day. Buying refurbished means it’s basically as good as new, and it’ll give you a cheaper price point that makes this a much more manageable gift item — especially if buying for your kids.

Save $360 on the 2017 Microsoft Surface Pro — still one of the best 2-in-1 laptops out there

Congrats: If you’ve held out this long through the shopping season, anxiously awaiting discounts bigger than Black Friday, you made a smart move. 

Best Buy’s 20 Days of Doorbusters continues with a massive deal on one of the best 2-in-1 laptops out there: 2017’s 5th generation Microsoft Surface Pro, now on sale for a whopping $360 off, keyboard included.

Yes, the newer Pro 6 did just come out earlier this month and yes, and it is undoubtedly spiffy as hell. But TBH, the upgrades are pretty light, and if you’re truly on a mission to save (which is probably why you clicked on this story), the 5th generation definitely holds its own — especially now that it’s about $500 cheaper than similar 6th generation models at their full price.

Save up to $150 off the iPad, iPad Pro, and new MacBook Air at Amazon during this Apple sale

Holiday sales are great to help you save a few bucks on gifts for your loved ones — but they’re also an excellent way to justify getting something shiny and new for yourself.

If you’ve been putting up with the same crappy laptop or tablet for far too long, you should know that Amazon has the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad, and brand new 2018 MacBook Air all on sale today.

And just to put the nail in the coffin, the discounts Amazon has on all three of these devices are the same (the iPad Pro) or better (the 9.7-inch iPad and MacBook Air) than what Best Buy is currently offering as part of their Apple Sales Event. Shout out to friendly competition. Read more…
