The new iMac Pro packs screaming-fast performance — and an eye-watering price. But if you’re in the market for Apple’s latest, great Mac, you can already snag a discount.

Also in this week’s roundup of the best Apple deals: refurbished iPads and Bose headphones.

Refurbished 9.7-inch iPad 128GB Wi-Fi tablet for $310

Want to save on a new iPad? A refurb is an easy way to do it. This 2017 9.7-inch model runs $50 less than a new device. It’s the lowest price we’ve seen for this model.

The iPad comes with a 60-day warranty and features a crisp 9.7″ multi-touch Retina display, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, front 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD and rear 8-megapixel iSight cameras, built-in stereo speakers, a Touch ID sensor and iOS 10.

Refurbished 12.9-inch iPad Pro 64GB Wi-Fi tablet for $550

If you want a bigger, more powerful Apple tablet, here’s another refurb option. This refurbished iPad Pro costs nearly $200 less than buying a new one. It features a new Retina display with 120Hz refresh rate and dynamic adjustment, as well as a new A10X Fusion chip with a 6-core CPU and 12-core GPU. And it comes with a 60-day warranty, too.

iMac Pro Intel Xeon W 8-Core 3.2GHz 27″ Retina 5K for $4,989

If your current machine is no longer cutting it, perhaps it’s time to upgrade to a pro desktop setup like this one. It’s only $10 off, but this is the first time we’ve seen a discount of any kind on the new iMac Pro, which Apple started shipping late last month. This model features an Intel Xeon W-2145 3.2GHz 8-core processor, 27-inch 5120×2880 5K Retina display, 32GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, Radeon Pro Vega 56 8GB graphics and macOS High Sierra.

Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Headphones for $169

Need a good set of headphones to pair with an older iPhone or iPod? These Bose QuietComfort 25 cans are designed to work with iOS. Even better, this is the best price we’ve seen for these great headphones. They feature Bose Active EQ and TriPort technology, an in-line microphone and remote, and rotating earcups. Note: They come with a typical 3.5mm headphone plug, not a Lightning connector.
