The 12-inch MacBook is Apple's thinnest and lightest machine, featuring a low power Core-M chip from Intel that allows it to operate without a fan. It includes a redesigned, thinner keyboard and a terraced battery design so in addition to being incredibly thin, it also has an impressive battery life.
Apple's Retina MacBook was just updated on April 19, 2016, so newer models aren't going to be discounted, but there may be some low prices on older models. To read more on the Retina MacBook, make sure to check out our Retina MacBook roundup.
The MacBook Air is Apple's most affordable notebook, offering a solid compromise between cost, performance, and size. It's thicker than the Retina MacBook and less powerful than the Retina MacBook Pro, and its lack of a Retina display keeps the price low. The MacBook Air, which received its last significant update in March of 2015, is available in 11 and 13-inch sizes and the current 2015 models use Broadwell processors.
The 13-inch models were bumped to 8GB RAM from the previous 4GB stock configuration on April 19, 2016. No other changes were made, so be sure you're getting the latest model with the higher RAM unless you're specifically looking at a good deal on an older model with 4GB. To read more on the MacBook Air, make sure to check out our MacBook Air roundup.
Discounts on the MacBook Air are frequently available. $100 off is common and during major sales, prices can go as low as $200 off.
Retina MacBook Pro
The Retina MacBook Pro is the most powerful notebook Apple sells, featuring Intel's Broadwell or Haswell chips, Intel Iris Graphics 6100 or an AMD Radeon R9 M370X, a Force Touch trackpad, fast PCIe-based flash storage, and a gorgeous Retina display. It's available in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes, with the more powerful 15-inch model offering a quad-core processor and discrete graphics power. Measuring in at 3.48 pounds for the 13-inch model and 4.49 pounds for the 15-inch model, the MacBook Pro is thicker and heavier than the MacBook Air or the MacBook, but the tradeoff is worth it for those who need more power. For more information about the Retina MacBook Pro, make sure to check out our Retina MacBook Pro roundup.
Apple's 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro was last updated in March of 2015, while the 15-inch model was last updated in May of 2015. With models that have been available for several months now, discounts are frequent. Many retailers often discount Retina MacBook Pro models by $100, but during significant sales, prices can drop by as much as $250.
Apple's iMac is an ultra-thin all-in-one desktop computer aimed at consumers. It's available in 21.5 and 27-inch size options, with the larger machine offering an impressive 5K Retina display, discrete graphics, and Intel's latest Skylake processors. The 21.5-inch model, which includes Intel's Broadwell chips and Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200, is available with a 4K display at the high-end, or with a standard 1920 x 1080 display for lower-end models. All iMac models come with a mouse and keyboard and include storage options ranging from a 5,400RPM hard drive to a Fusion drive to pure flash storage. For more information about the iMac, make sure to check out our iMac roundup.
Both the 27-inch and 21.5-inch iMacs were last updated in October of 2015, but can often be found at a $100 discount. Bigger discounts of up to $200 off are available during special sales.
The Mac mini is Apple's most affordable and compact desktop computer, positioned as a "bring your own" machine that comes without a mouse, keyboard, or display. Last updated in late 2014, the Mac mini includes Intel's Haswell processors and Intel HD 5000/Intel Iris Graphics. Previous Mac mini models were offered in four-core configurations, but following the 2014 update, only dual-core models are available. Since 2011, the Mac mini has had a square design with a 1.4-inch thin 7.7-inch wide aluminum unibody enclosure. For more information about the Mac mini, make sure to check out our Mac mini roundup
The low-power entry-level 1.4GHz Mac mini sells for $499, while a higher-end 2.8GHz machine with a 1TB Fusion drive sells for $999. Though it's been available since 2014, the Mac mini does not often see significant discounts. $50 to $100 off is common, even during big sales.
The Mac Pro is Apple's desktop machine for professionals. Last updated in 2013, the Mac Pro features a unique cylindrical design that wraps its inner components around a heat-absorbing thermal core that vents through a fan. It includes Ivy Bridge E processors, dual AMD FirePro GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage, and six Thunderbolt 2 ports. The entry-level Mac Pro includes a 4-core Xeon processor, but there are also 6-core, 8-core, and 12-core models available. As a professional-oriented machine, the Mac Pro packs a lot of processing power and is ideal for video editing and other related GPU and processor-intensive tasks. For more information about the Mac Pro, make sure to check out our Mac Pro roundup.
The Mac Pro is an expensive machine, with pricing that starts at $2,999, but retailers often offer the two stock machines at a discount of $200 off the retail cost. Discounts have gone as high as $500 off during sales.
The Apple TV is Apple's set-top box, designed to bring the Apple ecosystem to the television. The fourth-generation Apple TV is the latest model, released in October of 2015. It includes 2GB RAM and an A8 chip to support a full App Store complete with apps and games. It includes Siri support to enable voice-based searches for content, and it comes with a Siri remote that includes a glass Touch panel for touch-based navigation. The remote doubles as a gaming controller and it comes with 32 or 64GB of storage. To read more about the Apple TV, make sure to check out our Apple TV roundup.
Apple also sells an earlier third-generation Apple TV for $69. It supports channels like Netflix and HBO Go, but it does not include an App Store nor can it play games. The Apple TV is newly released and is not often discounted from its $149 and $199 price points.
Apple's iPad Pro lineup consists of two tablets, one with a 12.9-inch screen size that came out in November of 2015 and one with a 9.7-inch screen size that came out in March of 2016. Both are equipped with four-speaker arrays for impressive audio, gorgeous Retina displays, and A9X processors that rival the performance of desktop-class machines. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a faster clock speed and 4GB RAM, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro has a 12-megapixel camera and a unique True Tone display feature for adjusting the color of the display to match ambient lighting. The two iPad Pros support the Apple Pencil, a thin-tipped pressure-sensitive stylus that can be used for drawing, sketching, and writing, and they have an optional Smart Keyboard accessory.

iPad Air 2
Introduced in 2014, the iPad Air 2 is Apple's cheaper and less powerful 9.7-inch tablet, smaller than the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, the same size as the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and larger than the 7.9-inch iPad mini. Like all of Apple's iPads, it has a Retina display and Touch ID, and it comes in Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. Available in 16 and 64GB capacities, the iPad Air 2 is available in Wi-Fi only or Cellular + Wi-Fi configurations. It's a powerful tablet with an A8X processor, 2GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. For more information on the iPad Air 2, make sure to check out our iPad Air 2 roundup.
Apple hasn't updated the iPad Air 2 since 2014, so it's been around long enough to see some significant discounts. It's routinely available at $50 off and $100 discounts aren't uncommon. During major sales, prices have dropped by as much as $150.
iPad Mini 4
At 7.9 inches, the iPad mini 4 is Apple's smallest tablet and most affordable tablet. Like the iPad Pro and iPad Air 2, it is ultra thin and light, with support for Touch ID and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It includes an A8 chip and 2GB RAM, along with a Retina display protected by an antireflective screen coating. There's a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera and dual microphones for FaceTime calls, and it comes equipped with fast 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, and there are Cellular models available.
