Best Buy Black Friday in July: iPad Air 2 $125 off, 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro $1,750, 27-inch 5K iMac $1,800, more

From 9to5Toys.com:

Update (7/24 8:30am): Best Buy’s Black Friday in July event is now open to everyone.

Just a week after Amazon’s Prime Day event (fiasco?), Best Buy is set to run its Black Friday in July Sale this weekend. One of the standout deals is a $125 discount on all iPad Air 2 Wi-Fi models. Even though the sale doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, new and existing My Best Buy members can access the sale starting right now. If you aren’t yet a member you can sign-up for free.

After the aforementioned discount, a 16GB iPad Air 2 will run you just $374.99 with free shipping. That’s $124.01 less than Apple is charging and the lowest price we’ve ever seen from a major retailer without the need for limited coupons or annoying rebates. The 64GB version is priced at $474.99 (Reg. $599) and 128GB is $574.99 (Reg. $699). If you’re looking for an iPad mini, Best Buy has the 128GB Wi-Fi iPad mini 3 on sale for $449.99 (Reg. $599). On the fence with which model to get? My advice is to stay away from the 16GB and go for at least 64GB since Retina apps and HD media take up so much room.

These are fire sale type prices. It’s really incredible to see a discount of up to 25% on a current generation flagship Apple product. There are some incredible iOS 9 features coming so now may be the time to upgrade.

Best Buy is also discounting the current generation 15-inch 256GB Retina MacBook Pro (model MJLQ2LL/A) down to $1,749.99 (Reg. $1,999) and the 27-inch Retina 5K iMac 3.3GHz/8GB/1TB (model MF885LL/A) to $1,799.99 (Reg. $1,999).

iPad Air Stories March 3, 2015

I’ve tested almost every major iPad keyboard case since the first iPad was released five years ago, and still recall when companies charged $100 for greasy vinyl folios with terrible, squishy rubber keys. Thankfully, a lot has changed since then. If you’re willing to spend $100, you can get a much nicer iPad-holding case attached to a nearly great keyboard. Drop $130-$150 (or go nuts for $170), and you can get a metal keyboard that partially resembles a MacBook Air. Personally, $100 is the ceiling I’d ever be willing to pay for an iPad keyboard case, and I’d rather pay less. But unless you count discontinued models for prior-generation iPads, there aren’t many great options.

Anker is changing that. Its new Bluetooth Folio Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 sells for a stunningly low $40, and just like the 25,600mAh Anker iPad battery pack I previously reviewed, it delivers remarkable value for its price point. As the product of strategic compromises, it winds up giving up only one thing I typically prefer — a complete iPad-holding frame — in order to offer an excellent typing experience for the same cost as a typical iPad case without a keyboard. Read on for the reasons why I’d recommend this over options costing three times the price.
