Right now, you can get that massive MacBook Pro with Touch Bar that you’ve always wanted. Plus, a pair of iPads at great prices, and the hottest wireless headphones in the land at the best price yet.

You’ll find them all in this week’s roundup of the best Apple deals.

15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for $1,799

Feel like you can’t count on Santa to bring you a new MacBook? Treat yourself to the MacBook Pro i7 15-inch Retina laptop with Touch Bar for just $1,799, which is the best price we’ve seen for this model. It features an Intel Core i7 2.6GHz quad-core processor, 15.4-inch 2880×1800 IPS LED-backlit Retina display, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, Radeon Pro 455 2GB graphics, 802.11ac wireless, four Thunderbolt 3 ports and macOS Sierra.

Apple AirPods for $140

If you need a new pair of AirPods and happen to be a Costco member (or have been thinking of becoming a member), here’s a good deal. You can get the AirPods wireless headphones for just $140, which is $19 less than what other stores charge. They won’t arrive in time for Christmas, but will be sure to brighten your new year.

10.5-inch iPad Pro 256GB Wi-Fi for $650

Apple’s latest generation of iPads are more than mere tablets. They’re able to do many tasks as well — or better — than a laptop or desktop. You can currently get the 10.5-inch iPad Pro 256GB Wi-Fi tablet for $650 at Target, which is the lowest price we’ve seen for it. It features a 10.5-inch Retina display, 10X Fusion chip, Touch ID, 12MP camera with 4K HD video, 7MP FaceTime HD camera, and 802.11ac WiFi. The tablet comes in space gray, gold, rose gold and silver. The deal ends December 24.

9.7-inch iPad 32GB Wi-Fi for $250

If you don’t need a Pro-level tablet, this current-gen iPad is another good option. Get the 9.7-inch iPad 32GB Wi-Fi tablet for $250, also at Target, which ties the price we saw on Black Friday as the best deal we’ve seen. It features a 9.7-inch Retina display, 64-bit A9 chip, 10-hour battery life, Touch ID, and 8MP and FaceTime HD cameras.
