MacBooks, iPads See Their Best Prices Return In New Apple Sale

If you're in the market for a new iPad or MacBook, now's a good time to snag one at a pretty slick deal.

Comments

If you missed out on Best Buy's big Apple sale last week, then you'll be happy to hear that the retailer has kicked off another one, discounting iPads, MacBooks, and much more. Many of the deals return, while some even beat out the prices that were offered last week--there are some new My Best Buy-exclusive deals as well. While the last sale was three-days long, it's unclear when these deals will end. However, stock is limited, so be sure to act fast if you're interested in saving money on some Apple devices.

Plenty of other great deals return as well, including the Apple HomePod smart speaker for $200 and two separate Beats by Dr. Dre wireless headphones for more than $100 off. You can see all of the best deals below, but be sure to check out Best Buy for everything that's on sale, including 4K TVs, laptops, and much more.

iPad

32GB -- $280 ($329) | 128GB -- $360 ($429)

The latest model of iPad features a 10.2-inch screen and support for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, though it still features the same A10 Fusion chip from the previous generation. This isn't a bad thing, as it's still perfectly capable of gaming, editing, and other intensive operations--though if you want more power that will last you longer, then the iPad Air is worth looking at.

The basic iPad is still great for games like Fortnite and Call of Duty Mobile, while also being a great way to stream movies and TV shows, read comics and books, and surf the web on the go. It also comes with either 32GB or 128GB of storage space, and you can pick between three different colours as well as whether it has cellular connectivity in addition to WiFi.
