If you’ve been looking for a good deal on a MacBook or the latest iPad Pros, you should head over to Best Buy and check out its 24-hour Flash Sale. You’ll find plenty of other products on sale as well.
Since we’re all about Apple here, though, you shouldn’t miss the $300 Best Buy is knocking off the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro. That’s enough to bring the price down to $999.99, down from $1,299.99.
You might recall that there was also a MacBook Air on sale for this price at Amazon a couple of days ago—and that deal is still active—but this is the better deal if you want a machine that can better handle video editing and games.
For more specs, the Pro has an Intel Core i5 chip, 8GB of memory, and 128GB of storage. If that doesn’t float your boat, you’ll find plenty of other MacBooks on sale as well. I’m personally a big fan of the scrappy 12-inch MacBook, and you can find it on sale for just $899.99, down $400 from the normal retail price of $1,299.99. I’m strongly considering getting one myself.
If you’re more inclined to buy one of the latest iPad Pros, Best Buy has some is selling both the 11- and 12-inch models for anywhere from $100 to $200 off. At the low end, that will allow you to pick up an 11-inch 2018 iPad Pro for just $699.99. I’m a big fan of the new models, particularly since they support Face ID, which I find more useful for Apple’s tablets than the Touch ID used in the former models. (Be sure to check out my review from November for more information.)
If you prefer Touch ID—and if you’re still worried about that whole new “bendgate” thing—you should check out the deals Apple is offering on the previous generation 10.5-inch iPad Pro models. The chips are slightly slower, but there aren’t many apps that require the kind of power delivered by the 2018 models. For the moment, at least, these will be fine.
Just keep in mind that this is a Flash Sale, so these deals will only be available until midnight tonight at Central time. At the time of writing here in California, you’ve got 11 hours left to make a decision.
