8 Amazon Tech Deals You Can’t Afford to Miss (Yes, There’s a Macbook and Airpods)
The holidays may pretty much be over, but there are still plenty of amazing sales running right now, especially on Amazon. The retailer is running its Year-End Deals event, with steep discounts on top tech, including their own devices and top sellers from other brands (yup, even Apple). We rounded up some of our favorite finds for you below, but keep in mind that many of these discounts are running only for a limited time, so if you see something you like, grab it while you can.
Apple 13-Inch MacBook Air
It’s not the latest MacBook Air model, but it is significantly cheaper. This 13-inch model is almost identical in size and functionality, with a few key differences: It lacks Retina display and Touch ID. If you can forgo those newer upgrades, this is an incredible deal. Not to mention, this discounted model still has USB ports, unlike the latest edition that only has USB-C ports.

Apple iPad (10.2-Inch, Wi-Fi, 128GB) – Space Gray
Apple AirPods with Charging Case
The gift that pretty much everyone can agree on? AirPods. Now that the luxurious Pro versions have debuted (and promptly sold out), we’re noticing a significant price drop on the original model. Take advantage of your savings and pick up a snazzy case to set your AirPods case apart from the rest (and to protect the shell from drops).

Echo Show 5
The Echo Show has all the capabilities of the Echo Dot, but with the added benefit of a digital display. Use it to stream videos, watch TV or movies, get recipe directions, and even facilitate video chatting. While standing by, it functions discreetly as a clock or as a slideshow of your favorite pictures. For added privacy, you can also turn the microphone and camera off, and cover the camera with a built-in shutter.

Fire TV Stick 4K
Not ready to invest in a whole new smart TV? Just get a Fire TV stick, which enables access to Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix and over 10,000 other streaming services and apps. Plus, Alexa is built-in, so you can browse and control content with your voice, as well as check home security feeds, control lights, and more. Currently, the Fire TV stick isn’t back in stock until Dec. 22, so this might be better off as a gift to yourself. And if you want to save on two products, you can buy the Fire TV stick (not 4K) and an Echo Dot bundled together for just $15 more.
