Best Deals of the Week: A selection of Apple devices, Surface, Xbox, Meta Quest, and more

Ars Technica

Black Friday and Internet Week are technically done and dusted. But the season of bargains and record-low prices continues for a variety of electronics as the year comes to an end.

Among some of the best deals going on are a few of Apple’s iPads, MacBooks, and Apple TVs. Both the latest iPad and iPad Air are now on sale at their lowest prices ever. In our review, we called the iPad Air the best iPad for most people, thanks to the M1’s ultra-fast processor and Goldilocks-zone price point. Especially at this low record $499 For the price, it’s hard to beat the value of the latest iPad Air.

If you’re an iPhone user looking for a streaming box, Apple TV is a no-brainer. It’s available in HD and 4K models to save money on things you don’t need, it has an easy-to-use interface and coupler, the broadest app support of any streaming box, plus it can mirror to your Apple devices. It’s also a great place to stream Apple Fitness+. The main strike against them is price, but these current discounts put them within striking distance of simpler, less future-proof devices like Google’s Chromecast with Google TV. The latest Apple TV doesn’t add anything of substance, just HDR 10+ support, if that’s important to you. Otherwise, the Apple TV HD is ripped for $63 or 4K version for $80 Sure to please most of the Apple users for some time.

Elsewhere on the web we have half of the Tile Pro tracker ($50And the $100 dollars)Sony WH-1000XM5 ANC headphones for $348 ($400), Xbox Series S at $50 off ($240), the still-running Meta Quest bundle from Black Friday, and much more. Check out the full list of curated deals below.
