Those who have waited for a price drop on some of the latest MacBook M1s have been lucky this week. Apple’s MacBook Air M1, our current favorite of the bunch, is $ 100 off at Amazon, and those who need the extra storage can get the 512GB model for $ 150 off. Star Wars Instant Jars continue to be 40% off even after the May 4th holiday. Here are the best tech deals from this week that you can still get today.
MacBook Air M1
Apples MacBook Air M1 is down to $ 899 at Amazon, which is $ 100 below its normal price and a record high. This is for the base model, which runs on 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. If you need a larger SSD, the 512 GB model is also on sale for $ 1,100. We gave the MacBook Air M1 a score of 94 for its ultra-fast performance, solid construction and long battery life.
Woot still has the AirPods Pro for $ 190, or $ 60 off their regular price. While not as low as we saw them on Black Friday, it is still one of the best prices we’ve seen. We gave the AirPods Pro a score of 87 for their solid ANC, good audio quality and hands-free Siri capabilities. If you are not comfortable with Woot Return Policy, you can recover the AirPods Pro for $ 197 at Amazon.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller returns to its historically low price of $ 59 at Amazon. That’s $ 11 off its regular price, and while it might not seem like a huge sale, it’s important given that discounted Nintendo products are hard to come by. We love its comfortable handles, D-pad, built-in infrared sensor, and vibration feature.
Star Wars Instant Jars
While most Star Wars Day deals expired last week, a handful of character-themed Instant Jars are still $ 60 at Williams Sonoma and Amazon. You can take the 6 pints Little Bounty (the child), R2D2 or dark Vador multicookers for $ 40 less than usual, and since these special pots rarely go on sale outside of May 4, now is the time to take the plunge.
A few iPad Pro 2020 are for sale on Amazon, namely the 11 inch 512 GB version which has been reduced to $ 950. This sale follows the official launch of the iPad Pro 2021 earlier this month – and you can get a few of these devices for less, too. Walmart has the 128 GB 11-inch model for $ 749 or the 256 GB version for $ 849, or $ 50 off their normal prices. While the 11-inch iPad Pro lacks the 12.9-inch iPad Pro’s new Liquid Retina XDR display, it does have Apple’s new M1 chipset, a new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, Thunderbolt USB-C port and 5G support.
Omaze PC sweepstakes
Omaze has an ongoing raffle in which you can earn $ 20,000 to build the PC of your dreams. It doesn’t cost anything to get in, but if you pay for additional admissions, the funds donated go to Gamers Outreach, an organization that provides video games and other entertainment to children in hospitals.

Amazon is hosting a sale on May 14 that brought the prices of Anker’s Eufy-branded robovacs down to all-time low levels for a single day. The mid-level BoostIQ RoboVac 15C is reduced to 140 $, or less than the 11S we recommended in march, while its more powerful brother BoostIQ RoboVac 30 has been reduced to $ 150. We liked the 11S for its efficient cleaning and ability to avoid crashes at a good price, even when it was not on sale. The 15C builds on that with WiFi and support for voice control through Alexa and Google Assistant, while the 30C improves suction power and includes bounding strips. You can find all Eufy offers from Amazon here.
New technological offers
Logitech Folio Touch Case for iPad
Logitech Folio Touch Keyboard Case for the 11-inch iPad Pro, $ 32 off, bringing it down to $ 128. This is one of our favorites alternatives Magic Keyboard because it has comfortable backlit keys, a touchpad similar in size to the Magic Keyboard and it also offers more protection for your iPad.
Razer Rose Quartz Collection
A handful of gaming accessories from Razer’s Quartz Pink collection are on sale, including the Kraken Kitty Helmet, which came down to $ 130, and the BlackWidow V3, which comes to $ 125. While not all-time lows, it is a decent sale that can help save you some cash while upgrading your gaming setup with newer (and cuter) things.
Kasa Smart Plug Mini (pack of 4)
A pack of four Kasa Smart Plug Minis came down to $ 24 when you cut the 10% coupon on the page. These are small enough that you can fit two into one outlet, and they allow you to turn any ordinary household item into a smart one. They also support voice commands with Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant, and you can control your connected things from anywhere using the Kasa mobile app.
