Today’s best deals include new all-time lows on Mac Pro, plus notable discounts for SanDisk storage, and a nice price drop on the previous-generation Mac mini. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
Apple’s latest Mac Pro hits new lows
B&H is currently discounting some of Apple’s higher-end configurations on the latest Mac Pro, with up to $1,600 in savings to be had. Prices start at $5,899 for the 3.5GHz/32GB/1TB model, which is currently down from its regular $6,399 price tag, and climb from there. Today’s offers are still one of the first times we’ve seen price cuts on Apple’s latest Mac Pro and are the deepest discounts to date.
As Apple’s most customizable computers in years, Mac Pro is an ideal candidate for anyone in search of a professional machine. You’ll be able to configure it with up to 192GB of RAM, a 16-core Intel Xeon processor, 1TB of storage, and the Afterburner Card. Plus, there are multiple PCIe slots for graphics cards and more storage, four Thunderbolt 3 slots, and dual 10Gb Ethernet ports. Dive into our review for a closer look.
SanDisk deals abound
Today only, as part of its Deals of the Day, Best Buy is offering notable savings on SanDisk storage. Our top pick is the SanDisk Extreme 2TB USB-C Portable SSD for $280. As a comparison, it originally sold for $450 but trends around $330 or more. It just dropped to $300 at various retailers like Amazon. SanDisk’s Extreme portable SSDs feature transfer speeds up to 550 MB/s, 128-bit encryption, and a water-resistant design. It’s completely bus-powered, so you won’t need an extra power cable or wall outlet.
Mac mini $200 off
B&H is back to take up to $200 off Apple’s 2018 Mac mini. This is a match of the largest cash discount we’ve tracked as well as our previous mention. Check out the entire sale here. Mac mini comes loaded with I/O, including four Thunderbolt 3 ports, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, and more. Upgrading to the larger SSD is a good move, as it’s nearly impossible to do that yourself on the 2018 Mac mini. Check out our hands-on review for more details on the 2018 Mac mini.
Logitech Ergo Wireless Keyboard at $105
Staples is currently offering the Logitech Ergo K860 Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard for $105. Down from its $130 going rate, like you’ll pay at retailers such as Amazon, today’s offer is good for a 20% discount, is $11 under the all-time low there, and marks the best we’ve seen to date.
Upgrade the ergonomics of your setup with the aptly-named ERGO K860. Logitech’s wireless keyboard has a unique split layout which allows for a more natural typing experience and a cushioned wrist rest provides even more comfort. Bluetooth connectivity is joined by a wireless USB dongle for pairing with a computer. We found it to be a compelling option in our hands-on review.
Twelve South Compass iPad stands from $15
Amazon is offering the Twelve South Compass Pro for iPad for $50. Regularly $60, today’s deal shaves over 15% off and is among the best pricing we’ve seen since the onset of 2020. For those in need of an iPad stand, Twelve South Compass Pro stops at nothing to give you the best possible angle. It has not one, but two kickstands, each of which offers a ton of possible viewing angles thanks to a smooth, yet solid hinge. As we’ve come to expect from any Twelve South product, this offering sports a sleek look that’s bound to bolster the appearance of your space. Compass 2 is also on sale for $15, down from $20.
