Holiday sales are great to help you save a few bucks on gifts for your loved ones — but they’re also an excellent way to justify getting something shiny and new for yourself.

If you’ve been putting up with the same crappy laptop or tablet for far too long, you should know that Amazon has the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, 9.7-inch iPad, and brand new 2018 MacBook Air all on sale today.

And just to put the nail in the coffin, the discounts Amazon has on all three of these devices are the same (the iPad Pro) or better (the 9.7-inch iPad and MacBook Air) than what Best Buy is currently offering as part of their Apple Sales Event. Shout out to friendly competition.

As Apple’s best tablet, the 10.5-inch iPad Pro is the fancy device that your productivity and creativity is begging for. It features a 2224 x 1668 Retina display with ProMotion and True Tone technology, offering picture so vivid it feels like a 4K TV, making it optimal for creative projects like graphic design. With Apple’s new A10X Fusion mobile CPU and 4 GB of RAM, tasks are smooth and effortless, and heavy-duty apps won’t slow things down — and you’ll still get 10 hours of battery.

Regularly $799, you can save $149 on the 256 GB model and get it for $649.99.

Apple’s most affordable iPad yet just got even more affordable: Released in Spring 2018, this 9.7-inch model is simply titled “iPad” and is a fantastic successor to the older, more expensive generation. It’s noticeably more powerful, using Apple’s A10 Fusion chip to keep things speedy across the 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display. (The chip’s a step down from the Pro but still better than an Android phone). The biggest feat? The cheapest iPad finally works with the Apple Pencil, making this a great tool for students, artists, or teachers.

Regularly $329.99, you can save $80 and get it for $249.99.

For those looking for something a bit more all-encompassing but still transportable, the 13.3-inch MacBook Air is always a classic choice. The latest model in the line, the 2018 Air sees new features like Touch ID, a new, ultra bright Retina display, and a quick dual-core 8th-generation Intel Core i5 processor to keep up with numerous projects. All of that is packed into the same lightweight device you know and love, now made with 100% recycled aluminum.

Regularly $1,199, you can save $140 and get it for $1,059. (A $140 discount may not seem like a major deal on something that’s still over a grand, but remember that this model was just released in November 2018 — so this is one of its first discounts ever.)
