Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro gets $150 price drop

Amazon is taking up to $150 off Apple’s latest 13-inch MacBook Pro, bringing models like the 2GHz/16GB/1TB configuration down to $1,850. Today’s deals mark the second-best prices we’ve tracked to date.

The latest from Apple delivers 10th generation Intel processors, plus a True Tone Retina display, Touch Bar, and Intel Iris graphics. You’ll get up to 10-hours of battery life alongside the popular redesigned Magic Keyboard. There’s also four Thunderbolt 3 ports available, too.

Mac mini with 512GB of storage offers expansive I/O

B&H offers Apple’s latest Mac mini 3GHz/8GB/512GB for $999. That’s a $100 savings from the regular going rate and a match of our previous mention. The latest Mac mini sports an eighth-generation quad-core Intel Core i5 processor, along with speedy SSD storage offering 512GB capacity, and a wide range of I/O including four Thunderbolt 3 ports. You’ll also find Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI output, and USB 3.0 connectivity here.

Outfit your Apple Watch with this stainless steel band

Amazon offers its 42/44mm Stainless Steel Apple Watch Band for $13 in space gray. As a comparison, this model typically goes for around $18, with today’s deal delivering nearly 30% off the regular going rate. Ditch the pricey official Apple Watch bands and go with this third-party alternative, which brings a sleek space gray design to the mix at an affordable price. It comes with extra links, so you can size it to just the right fit, as well.

Belkin Valet Charging Dock hits $60

Daily Steals is currently offering the Belkin Valet iPhone and Apple Watch Charging Dock for $60. Down from its $100 going rate at Amazon, today’s offer saves you 40%, beats the all-time low there by $32, and marks the best we’ve seen this year. Whether you’re looking to simplify the nightstand or add a designated charging stop to your desk, Belkin’s Valet is a notable option. Not only will you be able to dock an iPhone on the built-in Lightning connector, but an integrated Apple Watch puck makes it easy to refuel the wearable, as well. The entire package is complemented by a stylish design with stainless steel accents. 

Save $200 on Kenwood’s 6.8-inch CarPlay Receiver

Best Buy’s official eBay storefront is currently offering the Kenwood 6.8-inch CarPlay and Android Auto Receiver for $600. Saving you $200 from its $800 going rate, today’s offer marks the second-best we’ve seen to date and is the lowest in months. Featuring a 7-inch touchscreen display, Kenwood’s CarPlay and Android Auto receiver is a must-have upgrade to your ride regardless of which smartphone ecosystem you’re in. It makes keeping an eye on directions, music playback, and more a breeze while on-the-road.
