iPhone 12 Pro/mini see rare cert. refurb deals
Woot is currently offering the Apple iPhone 12 Pro 128GB in certified refurbished condition for $940. Normally fetching $999, today’s offer marks one of the first discounts we’ve seen on an unlocked model in any condition and is the best price of the year on Apple’s latest handset for those not taking advantage of a plan from a carrier. You’ll also be able to save on the iPhone 12 mini at $99 off.
As the latest handset from Apple, iPhone 12 Pro arrives with a refreshed design that harks back to previous-generation models thanks to a squared-off form factor. Everything is centered around its 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, powered by the A14 Bionic processor and backed by 128GB of onboard storage. Regardless of which of the four colorways you choose from, there’s Ceramic Shield glass for added durability, which completes the package alongside Face ID and a 3-sensor camera array around back.

Save up to $149 on latest M1 MacBook Air
Amazon currently offers the latest 13-inch Apple M1 MacBook Air 256GB for $899. Normally fetching $999, today’s offer amounts to $100 in savings, beats our Prime Day mention by $1, marks an all-time low, and is a compelling option for those who don’t need to score a new pair of AirPods in Apple’s Back to School sale. The 512GB version is now $149 off, dropping to the best price yet at $1,100.
Apple’s latest MacBook Air is centered around a 13-inch Retina display and backed by improved performance thanks to the M1 chip that also yields extended battery life, all without an integrated fan. That’s on top of 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM, as well as a pair of Thunderbolt ports and Wi-Fi 6 support to round out the package. Get a better idea of its performance in our hands-on review.

Amazon currently offers the Twelve South BookBook for iPhone 12 Mini at $54. Down from its typical $70 price tag, today’s offer amounts to 23% in savings, beats our previous mention by $3, and marks a new all-time low. Twelve South’s recent BookBook case wraps your iPhone 12 mini in a premium leather design that’s comprised of an internal case that pairs with a folio that magnetically attaches onto the back. In terms of the latter, you’re looking at the usual added wallet functionality with room for several IDs and bank cards and a soft lining for keeping your handset’s screen safe.

LG’s 27-inch 4K UltraFine Monitor hits $500
Amazon currently offers the LG 27-inch Ergo 4K UltraFine Monitor for $500 shipped. Also available at Newegg for the same price. Normally fetching $599, today’s offer amounts to $99 in savings, matches the all-time low set just once before, and is still one of the first discounts to date. LG’s 27-inch Ergo display stands out from other monitors on the market with a unique ergonomic stand that clamps to your desk. On top of offering a variety of viewing angles and heights to fit into just about any setup, it packs a 4K panel that’s backed by AMD FreeSync support, USB-C, HDMI, and DisplayPort connectivity. I’ve been using the 32-inch model since the start of the year and am a big fan of its overall design, especially the ergonomic mount.
