Thanksgiving is upon us and Black Friday is just a few hours a way. This is one of the best times of the year to find a steep discount on an Apple device.

16″ MacBook Pro
The new 16″ MacBook Pro impresses Apple critics, with its large screen and return to a reliable keyboard mechanism. Fully equipped, this new, high-end MacBook Pro has enough storage, memory and processing power to facilitate professional audio-visual production. Although the new 16″ MacBook Pro is expensive compared to other notebook computers, with high-performance components and elegant design, it’s a worthy investment for professional users.
Amazon seems to have the best deals on the 16″ MacBook Pro this season. Various configurations can be purchased for $200 off.
New 10.2″ iPad WiFi 128GB for $329
This year’s iPad features a slightly larger screen than previous models. Although the device isn’t as powerful as a MacBook, it can accomplish some impressive tasks, as well as provide hours of entertainment.
Once again, Amazon has the best price on the new 10.2″ iPad. If you opt for no-rush shipping, the device only costs $329.
Free iPhone 11
It’s hard to be loyal to your cell phone carrier when they’re charging such exorbitant rates for data and service. Consumers often have much to gain by switching from one carrier to another. Although the process isn’t easy, it’s usually worth it, especially if you can get a new iPhone.
T-mobile is offering a free iPhone 11 for those willing to switch carriers and trade in their existing iPhone. You’ll need an iPhone 7 or later to be eligible for the trade in offer. For those with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, T-mobile is offering $500 off on the device. Both offers require activation of 4 qualifying voice lines.
AirPods Pro for $235
Apple’s new third-generaton AirPods Pro are the hottest gift this holiday season. Apple is having a hard time keeping these in stock. With an innovative noise-cancellation feature and audio-transparency for outdoor safety, these are the most advanced wireless earbuds on the market today.
Amazon seems to have the best price on AirPods Pro this season.
If you act fast, you can purchase a pair of these highly in-demand wireless earbuds for only $235. Don’t expect to get them anytime soon. There’s a one-to-two month wait for each order to ship.
Powerbeats Pro for $168
Apple’s AirPods may be all the rage, but they don’t fit in everyone’s ears. Apple claims that they fit 90% of the population. The new AirPods Pro offer three differing sizes of silicon tip to provide a better fit. Still, it’s not a one size fits all product. If you’re very active, such as a long distance runner, sweat and movement can cause AirPods Pro to lose their seal, diminishing audio quality.
Powerbeats Pro are wireless earbuds with a different design. Instead of dangling from the ear, they attach with a comfortable clip. They seem to offer better audio quality than the base model AirPods, which sound no better than Apple’s stock EarPods.
This is one Black Friday deal I am personally going for. I’ve been looking for some reliable, high quality headphones for some time. I had my heart set on the Beats Solo Pro headphones for some time, but this price simply cannot be beat. I can live without the more advanced features of Beats Solo Pro, such as noise cancellation and audio transparency. These are nice features, but they come at a hefty price.
I’ll be using the headphones mostly at home, on phone calls and when working on music. I don’t really like listening to music when I run or do resistance training, however, the Powerbeats Pro wireless earbuds are perfect for high energy, sweaty workouts.
You can pick up a pair of these from ProElectronics via Ratuken. Use the code THANKS20 to get $80 off on these high-quality wireless earbuds.
