Apple’s new 14-inch M2 Pro MacBook Pro falls to its best price yet

Halfway through the new work week, Amazon is offering some of the very first chances to save on Apple’s just-refreshed M2 Pro MacBook Pros. Not just one of the first, either, but also a new all-time low! The savings now kick off with the entry-level 14-inch M2 Pro MacBook Pro at $1,749. Normally selling for $1,999, today’s offer amounts to $250 in savings in order to land at a new all-time low. This is $50 under our previous mentions and the first time it has gone past the $200 savings threshold. 

Apple’s new MacBook Pro comes outfitted with the same form-factors as before, centered around a 14-inch Liquid Retina display. From there, you’re looking at mostly under the hood improvements that come centered around the latest in Apple Silicon. The M2 Pro processor powers the experience to make this Apple’s most capable portable MacBook yet. There’s up to 18-hour battery life and Wi-Fi 6E support for the first time to go alongside a new 8K HDMI output and three Thunderbolt 4 ports. There of course remains the SDXC slot on the side, as well as all of the other adjustments you can read about in our launch coverage that also takes a deeper dive into the performance of the new M2 Pro chip.

Apple’s 32-inch Pro Display XDR lands at new all-time low of $700 off

A new all-time low has arrived on Apple’s flagship 32-inch Pro Display XDR. If the more recent and affordable Studio Display just isn’t cutting it for your workstation, this higher-end solution can now land on your desk at $5,299 courtesy of Amazon. Dropping from $5,999, this is only the second discount of the year at $700 off. On top of being the best discount we’ve ever seen, it’s also $200 under our previous mention from back in March. 

Apple’s flagship monitor has long been a sight for sore eyes in the pricing department, but today’s discount finally makes for a more affordable chance to bring the high-end accessory to your workstation. Centered around the 32-inch 6K panel, Pro Display XDR also packs P3 wide color support, 1000 nits sustained brightness that peak at 1600 nits, as well as the Nano-texture finish. Not to mention, there’s 96W power passthrough alongside Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to round out the package. Get a closer look in our hands-on review.

Score a spare Apple MagSafe 3 Mac charger with the first discount of the year

Amazon is now offering Apple’s new 2-meter USB-C to MagSafe 3 Cable for $46. Marking the first chance to save this year, you’re looking at an all-around rare discount from the usual $49 going rate. We last saw it go on sale over Thanksgiving Week, for comparison. Apple very recently refreshed its MagSafe 3 connector for the M1 Pro MacBooks, finally bringing back the magnetic charging option after being gone for years.

The cable was then introduced for the new M2 MacBook Air last year, only to make a deployment in the recent M2 Pro series, and now the very same charging cord is on sale and just like the one that came in the box. It sports a woven design and metal connector that can lock onto the side of your Mac. Today’s discount makes for a great chance to score a spare at a discount, or outfit your everyday carry with one to always have on-hand.

Satechi’s USB-C Mulitport MX Hub is fit for M2 Pro MacBook Pro at $80

Satechi’s official Amazon storefront is now clearing out its USB-C Mulitport MX Hub. After seeing some new hubs and adapters from the brand hit the scene over the past year, the company is now clearing out one of its older yet still quite capable models to the lowest price yet. The USB-C Multiport MX Adapter normally sells for $180, but thanks to a cash discount off the list price and the on-page coupon, you can currently take $100 off. That drops it down to $80, delivering the best price we’ve ever seen. The last mention was 20% off in a sitewide Satechi sale, and now you can bring it home for far less at an extra $64 off. 

Originally designed for M1 Pro MacBook Pros, Satechi’s USB-C hub is fit for even Apple’s latest with much of the same matching design. The bus-powered form-factor packs a robust list of I/O, including dual 4K HDMI outputs as well as a pair of USB-C slots with 100W power passthrough. Rounding up the total number of ports to nine, you’ll find two USB-A, Gigabit Ethernet, and micro/SD card readers. All that of course comes in a fitting aluminum house fit for Apple’s latest Macs. 

Nanoleaf Essentials HomeKit color lightstrip works over Thread at $40

Nanoleaf’s official Amazon storefront is now discounting the Essentials Thread HomeKit Color Lightstrip down to $40. You’ll need to clip the on-page coupon in order to lock-in the savings. Normally fetching $50, this is the first chance to save in 2023 at 20% off. It comes within $5 of the all-time low from our previous Black Friday mention last fall. Not to mention, this is the second-best price yet.

Equipped with both Bluetooth Thread and Wi-Fi, this Nanoleaf Essentials Lightstrip will pair with your Siri and HomeKit setup right out of the box. The 80-inch strip sports full color illumination for adding a bit of flare behind a TV or monitor, onto a shelf for some extra ambiance, or really anywhere else that could use a pop of color. We took a hands-on look at what to expect in a review last year, as well.
