Today’s best deals include Apple Watch SE at new all-time lows, Mac mini at $299 off, and Retina 5K iMacs heavily discounted. Head below for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Apple Watch SE deals return before Christmas

Amazon offers Apple Watch SE 44mm GPS Sport for $250. That’s down from the usual $309 price tag and a new Amazon all-time low.

Apple Watch SE delivers everything you love about Apple’s wearables in a more affordable package. While you’ll miss out on the blood/oxygen sensor of the high-end Series 6 models, there’s still a big Retina OLED display, fitness tracking, and a fully swimproof design to check out here.

Apple’s Intel Mac mini drops to new all-time low at $299 discount

Amazon offers Apple’s previous-generation Mac mini 3GHz/8GB/512GB for $800. Price reflected at checkout. That’s good for $299 off the regular going rate, a new Amazon all-time low, and the largest cash discount we’ve tracked on a Mac mini all-time.

Mac mini sports an eighth-generation 6-core Intel Core i5 processor, along with speedy SSD storage 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. 

Retina 5K iMac deals abound

B&H is currently taking up to $200 off Apple’s mid-2020 Retina 5K iMacs. Our top pick is the 3.6GHz/8GB/1TB SSD model for $2,699. As a comparison, it typically goes for $2,899 and today’s deal matches the best we’ve seen.

Apple’s latest Retina 5K iMacs feature a familiar design but with upgraded internals, along with a new 10th-generation processor and a 1080p webcam. This specific model offers a 3.6GHz processor, plus AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT graphics, 8GB worth of RAM, and a 2TB internal solid-state drive. You can learn more about the changes in this latest refresh here alongside additional details in our hands-on review.

Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro now $400 off

B&H offers Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro 2.3GHz/1TB/16GB for $2,399. That’s a $400 savings from the regular going rate, $100 under our previous mention, and the second-best offer we’ve tracked all-time. This model features a 16-inch Retina display that’s backed by a 2.3GHz Intel Core i9 processor, 16GB worth of RAM, and a 1TB solid-state drive. You’ll also find four Thunderbolt 3 ports here alongside Apple’s Touch Bar, bringing ample connectivity and functionality to your daily driver. Learn more in our hands-on review.

Marshall Emberton retro Bluetooth speaker hits $130

Amazon offers the Marshall Emberton Portable Bluetooth Speaker for $130. Down from its $150 going rate, here you’re saving $20 with today’s offer matching the all-time low set only once before. As Marshall’s most compact speaker yet, Emberton still delivers on all of the old school vibes that the brand is known for with a vinyl-wrapped exterior and metal speaker grill up front. Looks aside, other notable features here include true stereophonic multi-directional audio, 20-hour battery life, and USB-C charging.
