Want a new MacBook Pro, but don’t feel the need to spend the extra cash for the Touch Bar? This mid-2017 model MacBook Pro is a good option, as it’s the lowest price we’ve seen for it. It features an Intel Core i5-7360U 2.3GHz Kaby Lake dual-core processor, 13.3-inch 2560×1600 IPS LED-backlit Retina display, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, two Thunderbolt 3 ports and macOS Sierra.

If you’re in the market for a new iPad, here’s a great price on a current-generation model. This deal on the 5th-gen 9.7-inch iPad 32GB Wi-Fi tablet ties the price we saw on Black Friday as the lowest price ever. It features a 9.7-inch Retina display, A9 chip, Touch ID and two cameras (8MP front-facing and 1.2MP FaceTime HD).

Embroidered iPhone case for $4

Want to snazz up your iPhone? Nothing could be cooler than a case embroidered with a horned demon, a fish or flying birds! These cases are available for iPhone 7 and 8, iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus, or iPhone X.

If you like Minecraft, there’s a good chance you’ll love this spinoff. Even better, you can get it for your iPhone or iPad for free. This is the first time we’ve seen it for free; it ordinarily costs $5.
