Apple Stories Today

Electronics Valley (99.6% positive feedback, Top-Rated Seller) via eBay Daily Deals offers the current generation Apple 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro 2.7GHz/8GB/128GB (model MF839LL/A) for $1,029.99 shipped. That’s a $269.01 savings off the regular price and a match of the best straight discount that we’ve seen. We did see it for slightly less with a .edu discount at Best Buy a while back.

Features include a 2.7GHz dual-core Intel i5 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz), 8GB of RAM, 128GB PCIe-based Flash Storage, a 3840×2160 Retina display and a Force Touch trackpad.

Worried about just 128GB of storage? With your savings, pick up one of Transcend’s JetDrive Lite Storage Expansion cards for as little as $34.99 Prime shipped. This SD storage sits flush with the edge of your MacBook Pro, so you don’t have to worry about hitting it or accidentally knocking it out of place. Amazon customers love this product, with over 590 reviewers leaving a 4.5/5 star rating.

Walmart offers the all-new 64GB Apple TV (4th generation) for $159 with free shipping. It was a few dollars less earlier in the week at Radio Shack, but that pricing has expired. Today’s deal is $40 (20%) off retail and $10 better than Apple’s refurbished listing. Looking to cut costs even further? Walmart has the 32GB model on sale for $129 shipped (Reg. $149).

Apple’s latest streaming media player brings Siri, apps and a beautiful user interface to your family room. The upcoming tvOS 10 software update will add a bevy of new features to Apple TV this fall, including support for HomeKit-enabled accessories (shown in lead image), dark mode, single sign on, live tune-in and more.

If you’ve been holding out for a new standalone desktop display from Apple, you’re either going to take news of the Thunderbolt Display being discontinued as a sign of good things to come, or as a cue to finally purchase a new 4K or 5K display from someone else. For most, especially considering Apple itself is recommending you purchase a third-party display, the latter option is going to be the more likely.

While Apple didn’t recommend any specific third-party alternatives during its discontinuation announcement of the Thunderbolt display last week, we’ve done the work for you and put together our top picks for the best 4K & 5K displays for Mac available to buy right now.

During the lead up to WWDC there was some optimism Apple would finally release a new external Display, but that hope quickly disappeared. Apple quelled all rumors last night when it announced plans to discontinue the Thunderbolt Display and recommended prospective buyers check out 3rd party options. There’s a chance Apple could release an all-new monitor at some point down the road, but given Apple’s recent shift away from professional products, it wouldn’t be surprising if we never see another display come out of Cupertino.

To that end, we’ve rounded up the best monitors available right now across all budgets for Mac users…

When I reviewed SanDisk’s new Lightning to USB flash drive for iPhone back in April, I noted it was one of the best yet. Today the company is launching a new product that essentially offers the same functionality— extra storage for files that you can access from a companion iOS app— but in the form factor of a sleek iPhone 6/6s case.

LeBron James has been endorsing Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless Headphones for years and he just brought Cleveland its first major sports championship in more than 50 years. Coincidence? Most likely! But that doesn’t change the fact that they are still great looking and sounding headphones. Right now you can get them from Amazon in Red, Flash Blue (Active Collection), Shock Yellow (Active Collection) and Siren Red (Active Collection) on sale for $119.99 with free shipping. Alternatively, Best Buy also offers the same discounted price on a few additional colors like Black and White. As a price comparison, they carry a list price of $200 and usually sell for around $150.

I’m partial to the Shock Yellow model since it matches perfectly with most of the latest athletic fashion trends. These headphones feature wireless Bluetooth connectivity (up to 30-ft), 6-hour rechargeable battery, RemoteTalk, and are IPX4 sweat resistant. Rated 3.7 out of 5 stars from more than 4,000 Amazon reviewers.
