Black Friday is still a week away, but that doesn’t mean the savings are: Best Buy is already offering its Black Friday price on a MacBook Air. That, plus iPad keyboards, a Time Capsule and a MacBook Pro are in this week’s best Apple deals.
MacBook Pro i5 13-inch with Retina display for $1,030
It’s rare to see discounts on the high-end MacBook Pro, even after a big update like we saw last month. That makes this deal from Electronics Valley via eBay even more enticing. The store offers the MacBook Pro Intel Core i5 13.3-inch laptop with Retina display for $1,029.99 with free shipping.
That’s $20 under our August mention (which was limited to qualified students) and the lowest total price we could find today by $170. It features an Intel Core i5 2.7GHz Broadwell dual-core processor, 13.3-inch 2,560-by-1,600 Retina display, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, Intel Iris Graphics 6100, FaceTime HD camera, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, HDMI, Thunderbolt 2 and Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).
2TB AirPort Time Capsule 802.11ac wireless HDD for $199
Storage is never sexy, but it is important. And right now, it’s affordable, as Staples offers the Apple 2TB AirPort Time Capsule 802.11ac wireless hard drive, model ME177LL/A, for $199 with free shipping.
That’s tied with our mention from September as the lowest total price we’ve seen for a new model. (It’s a best price now by $76.)
The Time Capsule features simultaneous dual-band Wi-Fi, built-in compatibility with Time Machine, and the ability to enable wireless access to some wireless devices like printers. Deal ends December 17.
Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro for $90
If you’ve already got your hardware but need some accessories, check out TechRabbit as it offers the Apple Smart Keyboard for iPad Pro 9.7″ and for iPad Pro 12.9″ in Gray, both for $89.99 with free shipping. That’s the lowest total price we could find by $53 and $25, respectively. This water- and stain-resistant cover features a 64-key keyboard, folds into a tablet stand, and protects the iPad display when not in use. Both deals end November 20.
MacBook Air i5 dual 13-inch laptop with 256GB SSD for $1,000
As one of its early Black Friday deals, Best Buy offers the 3-pound, current-generation MacBook Air Intel Broadwell Core i5 1.6GHz 13.3-inch laptop bundled with a Titanium Internet Security three-device six-month subscription for Mac/Windows/Android/iOS for $999.99 with free two-day shipping.
That’s the lowest total price we could find by $40, although we saw it for $30 less in June. It features an Intel Broadwell Core i5 1.6GHz dual-core processor, 13.3-inch 1,440-by-900 LCD screen, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Thunderbolt 2, backlit keyboard and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
