This week, Apple announced many new devices, but we also found a few of Apple’s older gear on sale this week, plus a few Earth Day-related deals. The Mac Mini M1 was discounted by $100, and the MacBook Air M1 returned to an all-time low of $800. AirPods Pro remains on sale for $197, and the updated Google WiFi system is still 20-percent off at Adorama. And if you’re looking for a new wearable, many of Fitbit’s smartwatches and fitness trackers are deeply discounted, too. Here are the best tech deals from this week that you can still get today.

Mac Mini M1

Mac Mini M1

The Mac Mini M1 with extra storage is back down to $800 right now, thanks to an automatically applied coupon that knocks an additional $29.01 off the sale price. This is a great time to pick up the latest Mac Mini if you’ve wanted to upgrade your desktop to something more powerful that’s also compact enough to fit into most desk setups.

MacBook Air M1 and MacBook Pro M1

The latest MacBook Air M1 dropped to $899 on Amazon, which is $100 off its regular price and an all-time low. You’re getting the new M1 chipset from Apple along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage in the discounted models. We gave the MacBook Air a score of 94 for its super-fast performance, lovely display, comfortable keyboard and trackpad, and lack of fan noise. If you need more storage, the silver 512GB model is also $100 off right now. And if you want something a bit more powerful and flexible, the MacBook Pro M1 is $150 off, bringing the base model down to $1,149.

AirPods Pro

Apple’s AirPods Pro is down to $197 on Amazon, which is over $50 off their regular price. While not an all-time low, it’s the best price we’ve seen in a while. We gave them a score of 87 for their solid ANC, comfortable design, and hands-free Siri support.

2020 iPad Pro

On the heels of Apple announcing the new iPad Pros, last year’s model has dropped to a record low: $999 for a 256GB 12.9-inch iPad Pro with LTE. That’s $250 off its regular price, making it a great deal if you feel comfortable skipping this year’s updates and going with a slightly older version.

Google WiFi

The Google mesh WiFi system is on sale for $160 at Adorama right now when you use the code EXTRAOFF40 at checkout. While not exactly the same as the Nest WiFi, this 3-pack will cover 4,500 square feet, and it’s easy to set up with the Google Home mobile app. Last year, the company also updated the system to be better at supporting the heavy loads that multiple, simultaneously connected devices may put on your network.

Fitbit devices

Fitbit may have announced its new Luxe tracker this week, but many of its other devices are on sale. The Fitbit Sense is down to an all-time low of $250, while the Versa 3 is on sale for $180, and the Inspire 2 is down to $70. The first two options are better for those like the smartwatch look, while the Inspire band is best if you want a more minimalist device to track daily activity and sleep.

Roomba i7

The Roomba i7+ and i9+ are back down to their Black Friday prices of $599 and $899, respectively. We reviewed the Roomba i7+ when it first came out and gave it a score of 87 for its excellent cleaning performance, quiet nature, and convenient base, into which it dumps dirt and debris after each job.

Segway Ninebot Kickscooter Max

Segway’s Ninebot Kick scooter Max G30LP is down to $599 at Wellbots when you use the code EARTHRIDE at checkout. This model came out last year, and it has an updated, sturdier design, an IPX5 water-resistant body, and a max speed of 18.6 mph. It’ll take roughly 6.5 hours to charge up from zero and, depending on the riding mode you choose, you should get about 25 miles before the scooter needs more power.

New tech deals

Amazon Smart Plug

Amazon’s Smart Plug is $10 off right now, bringing it down to $15. You can turn any appliance into a smart one with this adapter, which will then let you control that appliance via a smartphone app and using Alexa voice commands. We also like that it has a relatively compact design that won’t block your second outlet, and it doesn’t require a smart home hub to use.

Eufy RoboVac 11S Max

This is the higher-powered version of one of our favorite budget robot vacuums, the Eufy RoboVac 11S. With the Max model, you’ll get up to 2,000Pa suction power plus all of the benefits of the standard version. We like Eufy’s robot vacuum for its slim profile, thorough and relatively quiet cleaning, and it’s included remote that lets you set schedules and manually control the device.

ThermoWorks Thermapen Mk4

You can save 30 percent when you buy two or more Thermapen Mk4 instant-read thermometers. This is one of our favorites because it’s relatively compact, provides super-fast temperature reads, and automatically wakes up when you pick it up.
