Apple’s M2 MacBook Air now $150 off at new all-time lows

Apple’s M2 MacBook Air has quickly become one of the most popular option in its current stable. But before we see the second-generation Apple Silicon come to the Pro side of the lineup this October, Amazon is offering a pair of discounts on the new portable macOS machine. Right now, the 13-inch M2 MacBook Air 512GB is now on sale for $1,349 in Space Gray. Down from $1,499, this is one of the first discounts and a new all-time low at $50 under the previous discount. The savings also continue over the baseline 256GB model, which is now also sitting at $150 off and matching the all-time low of $1,049

Apple’s all-new M2 MacBook Air comes powered by its latest in-house chip and pairs with a refreshed form-factor. The 13-inch Liquid Retina Display sports a 500-nit brightness to complete the P3 wide color support and pairs with a 1080p FaceTime camera with three-mic array and Spatial Audio-enabled speakers. Though the real highlight has to be the return of MagSafe charging, which pairs with other I/O like dual Thunderbolt ports. Learn more about the entry-level configuration’s performance.

Apple’s official Smart Folio for iPad Pro hits $70

Amazon now offers the Apple Smart Folio for latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro at $70. Normally fetching $99, today’s offer amounts to $29 in savings while marking one of the first cuts to date. This is also a new all-time low from Amazon, as well.

Wrapping your 12.9-inch iPad Pro in one of Apple’s official cases, the Smart Folio protects both the front and back of your device. On top of doubling as a stand for watching videos or taking notes, the folding folio cover provides sleep and wake functionality. It also magnetically snaps to the back of your device and features a soft polyurethane material to round out the package for some extra protection when stored away in your bag and more.

Save $450 or more on DJI’s latest Mavic 3 quadcopter

DJI’s official eBay storefront now offers the first chance to save on an in-house refurbished Mavic 3 Quadcopter. Dropping the drone down t$1,749, this is a new all-time low at $450 off the original price tag. For comparison, we last saw a new condition model go for $2,049, with today’s offer marking one of the very first chances to save since launching last fall. The DJI Mavic 3 Fly More Combo is also on sale, and now sits at an all-time low of $2,349 after the $650 in savings is applied. 

DJI’s most capable consumer drone yet arrives as the new Mavic 3 following its launch late last year.
