Apple’s 11-inch M2 iPad Pro gets $200 off

Following the price cut we saw over the weekend on the larger 12.9-inch model, Amazon is now discounting the 11-inch M2 iPad Pro as well. Marking the elevated Wi-Fi 1TB model to $1,299, this is a new record low of $200 off the usual $1,499. We’ve only seen one discount go live so far on this higher capacity, and now those who need more storage at their fingertips will find the best discount ever. There are also some other discounts from $729 like the entry-level 128GB capacity, though nothing as enticing as the 1TB model.

Apple just released the latest generation iPad Pro last month, and now you can finally save on the latest iPadOS experience. This time, everything comes with the latest M2 iPad Pro centered around a familiar form factor like previous models with all the staples like Apple Pencil 2 support, Wi-Fi 6E, Face ID, all-day battery and Magic Keyboard integration. Although there are some notable improvements, such as the M2 chip powering its 11-inch Liquid Retina XDR display with ProMotion, True Tone and P3 wide color support. Circling back to Apple Pencil 2 support, there’s a new hover feature that offers another way to interact with the interface, which you can learn more about in our coverage.

Regardless of which M2 iPad capacity you end up with, the form factor practically begs to be paired with one of the second-generation Apple Pencils. Ideal for making the most of both screens and their drawing, writing and precision input potential, this is an essential addition, whether it’s for creating digital art or just getting the most out of the form factor.

Woot’s latest Apple Refurbishment Sale features the iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7

Woot has today launched its latest Certified Refurbished Apple sale, marking a number of iPhones and Apple Watch styles in the process. As usual, Woot offers free shipping to Prime members, while otherwise charging a flat fee of $6. Among everything you’ll find on this landing page, our top pick this time has Apple’s unlocked iPhone 13 from $580 for the capacity of 128 GB in several colors. That’s down from the original $799 price you would have originally paid, with today’s deal $219 off. This comes within $10 of its all-time low and is still one of the first times we’ve seen it on sale.

The now previous generation iPhone 13 comes as an even better value thanks to the discount today and comes powered by the A15 Bionic chip. Besides a noticeably improved battery life compared to predecessors, there’s also the same square design as last time to pair with the Super Retina XDR display with a smaller notch. There’s also an upgraded camera experience with its newer Cinematic mode and improved sensors. Includes 90 day warranty. Dive into our coverage here for a better look.

If you’re also looking to score yourself a new wearable to help make all those New Year’s fitness goals come true, Woot is also discounting a range of Apple Watch models today. As part of the sale, you’ll find a selection of different previous generation models, although our favorite is the Apple Watch Series 7 from 260 USD. It matches our previous mention of the 41mm GPS model and is down from the usual $399 price in several styles. The larger 45mm range is now on $270also on sale and down from the original $429 going rate and also matching the all-time low.

While it’s not the all-new version, the Apple Watch Series 7 still packs a lot into your fitness kit for far less than any of Apple’s latest. There’s a similar build centered around the brightest screen Apple makes, as well as all-day battery life backed by a quick charge mode for overnight use. And while there’s no built-in temperature sensor like the Series 8, you’ll still find built-in heart rate monitoring, the ability to monitor blood oxygen levels and even take EKGs. All with watchOS 9 at the center of the experience.

LG’s unique new Libero 27-inch USB-C monitor hits $397

Amazon is marking down a pair of LG’s unique new displays today at some of the best prices ever. Starting with one of the brand’s latest debuts, the recent LG 27-inch Libero Monitor now rests on $397. When you typically bring in $500, you’re looking at over 20% off and one of the first chances to save. It has only sold for less once before back in November ahead of the Christmas shopping season and is otherwise the best. LG’s new Libero monitor answers the question of what if you needed a monitor you can use in even the most compact workstation environments.

Its sleek design has two different ways to prop itself up, with a collapsible stand that can be positioned at multiple angles, as well as a pair of hooks that let you hang it from a cubical wall. In either case, it has a 27-inch 1440p panel and is supported by all the other modern features you’d expect, such as an HDMI port, USB-C connection with 65W power supply and HDR 10 compatibility. Even more interestingly, there’s also a detachable HD webcam to round off your setup.

As for the other unique form factor factoring into the savings, Amazon is now also offering the new LG DualUp 28-inch display for $597. Normally, today’s deal brings in $700, and it still offers one of the first chances to save period on the new release with $103 in savings attached. This also matches the all-time low twice previously on the new 2560 x 2880 display. With a unique 16:18 aspect ratio, the new LG DualUp display centers around a 28-inch panel that’s actually just a pair of 1440p displays stacked on top of each other.

Straight from the 1990s, the vertical form factor is supported by one of LG’s popular Ergo brackets for attaching to your desk and adjusting the height or position. In addition to its two HDMI 2 ports, there is also a USB-C slot that makes this ideal for MacBooks, especially thanks to its 90W power supply capacity. If you’re somehow still not sold on the quirky form factor, our hands-on review guides you through its place on your macOS desktop.

TP-Link’s smart Kasa Mini plug supports HomeKit

Best Buy now offers TP-Link’s Kasa Mini HomeKit Smart Plug for $13. Normally fetching $18, you’re looking at a $5 discount and a return to the next best price. It comes within $1 of its all-time low and has not been on sale over the past few months.

This smart Kasa plug provides an affordable way to bring HomeKit support to a lamp, appliance, string light, or anything else that plugs into a standard outlet, and features a low-profile design that won’t stiffen either wall plug. In addition to working with Siri, you’ll also find Alexa and Assistant support over Wi-Fi, as well as all the automation and scheduling support available in the app. Then the built-in power monitoring support only makes it a better buy for anyone looking to cut down on power vampires.

Rare discount lands on Logitech’s popular MX Vertical Mouse for $85

Amazon is now offering a very rare chance to save on the popular Logitech MX Vertical Wireless Mouse. Now dropping in price for the first time at the retailer in over a year, you’re able to bring the ergonomic workstation accessory home to $85. This is lower than the $100 price tag it has traded at since launch and amounts to $15 in savings. This matches the best price of the past year, is $1 below our previous mention, and is quite a rare chance to save on one of the brand’s fan-favorite peripherals.

Logitech’s MX Vertical Mouse stands out from the other releases in its stable with a unique, ergonomic design that aims to reduce muscle strain during extended work sessions. It packs Logitech’s FLOW functionality for seamless dual-device use, along with copying text and other files from one machine to another.
