Those who have been holding out for a price drop on some of the latest M1 MacBooks were in luck this week. Apple’s MacBook Air M1, our current favorite of the bunch, is $100 off at Amazon, and those who need extra storage can get the 512GB model for $150 off. Star Wars Instant Pots continue to be 40 percent off even after the May the 4th holiday has come and gone. Here are the best tech deals from this week that you can still get today.
MacBook Air M1
Apple’s MacBook Air M1 is down to $899 at Amazon, which is $100 off its normal price and a record low. That’s for the base model, which runs on 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. If you need a larger SSD, the 512GB model is also on sale for $1,100. We gave the MacBook Air M1 a score of 94 for its super fast performance, solid build and great battery life.
Woot still has the AirPods Pro for $190, which is $60 off their normal price. While not as low as we saw them during Black Friday, it remains 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’re not comfortable with Woot’s return policy, you can grab the AirPods Pro for $197 at Amazon.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller returns to its all-time-low price of $59 at Amazon. That’s $11 off its normal price and, while that might not seem like a huge sale, it’s significant considering discounted Nintendo products are hard to come by. We like its comfortable grips, D-pad and built-in infrared sensor and vibration feature.
Star Wars Instant Pots
While most Star Wars Day deals expired last week, a handful of character-themed Instant Pots are still down to $60 at both Williams Sonoma and Amazon. You can pick up the 6-quart Little Bounty (The Child), R2D2 or Darth Vader multi-cookers for $40 less than usual, and considering these special pots rarely go on sale outside of May the 4th, now’s the time to take the plunge.
A few 2020 iPad Pros are on sale at Amazon, namely the 512GB 11-inch version that has been discounted to $950. This sale comes on the heels of the 2021 iPad Pros officially going on sale earlier this month — and you can get a few of those devices for less, too. Walmart has the 128GB 11-inch model for $749 or the 256GB version for $849, or $50 off their normal prices. While the 11-inch iPad Pro doesn’t have the new Liquid Retina XDR display that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro has, it does have Apple’s new M1 chipset, a new 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a USB-C Thunderbolt port and 5G support.

Amazon is running a sale on May 14th that has dropped the prices of Anker’s Eufy-branded robovacs to all-time lows for one day only. The mid-tier BoostIQ RoboVac 15C is down to $140, or less than the 11S we recommended in March, while its more powerful BoostIQ RoboVac 30 sibling has been discounted to $150. We liked the 11S for delivering effective cleaning and strong collision avoidance at a good price, even when it wasn’t 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 boundary strips. You can find all of Amazon’s Eufy deals here.
New tech deals
Logitech Folio Touch case for iPad
Logitech’s Folio Touch keyboard case for the 11-inch iPad Pro is $32 off, bringing it down to $128. This is one of our favorite alternatives to the Magic Keyboard because it has comfortable, backlit keys, a touchpad that’s similar in size to that on the Magic Keyboard and it provides more protection for your iPad, too.
Razer Quartz Pink collection
A handful of gaming accessories in Razer’s Quartz Pink collection are on sale, including the Kraken Kitty headset, which is down to $130, and the BlackWidow V3, which is down to $125. While not all-time lows, this is a decent sale that can help you save money while upgrading your gaming setup with newer (and cuter) things.
Kasa Smart Plug Mini (4 pack)
A pack of four Kasa Smart Plug Minis is down to $24 when you clip the 10-percent on-page coupon. These are small enough that you can fit two of them on one outlet, and they let you turn any regular household item into a smart one. They also support voice commands with Amazon’s Alexa or the Google Assistant, and you can control your plugged-in items from anywhere using the Kasa mobile app.
