Your Mac’s hard drive is where much of your digital life is stored. The award-winning Drive Genius 4 is designed to keep it running smoothly and repair any mishaps. You can currently get it at 9to5Toys Specials for $50.

With so many files to keep in order, it isn’t surprising that OS X misplaces stuff once in a while. Drive Genius lets you repair those file errors and weed out duplicates to improve performance, all while looking out for any future hiccups. This includes assessing hardware health and checking for corrupted files, and it alerts you to anything it finds.

You can also use the app to create a bootable secondary hard drive for emergency use, and customize the appearance of drives and folders for easier recognition. Drive Genius offers the features of apps twice its price (I’m looking at you, DiskWarrior), and it is standard issue for Apple Geniuses.

Professionals and prosumers love the bigger screen and increased power that comes with Apple’s 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. The only problem is that these models rarely get discounted. But right now Amazon and B&H have dropped their prices on both standard configuration models:

Prices are the same at both retailers, however B&H only charges sales tax at the time of purchase for New York buyers and is including a free copy of Parallels 10.

Both models include a 2880 x 1800 Retina Display and the new Force Touch Trackpad.
