There are some great deals on Apple-related accessories and services this week, as well as some decent discounts on the iPad mini and the 13 and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro.

Beats Studio over-ear headphones can be purchased (in six colors) for $180 through Groupon, which is $89 off the price when purchased directly from Beats. Target is also offering 25 percent off Beats Music gift cards, dropping the $50 card to $37.50 and the $25 card to $18.75, essentially dropping the price of a yearly subscription from $99 to $75.

Best Buy is offering the 16GB non-Retina iPad mini for $199, a discount of $100 from the standard $299 price. It's available in both white and space gray. Best Buy is also offering a $25 iTunes gift card with the purchase of a $99 Apple TV.

The higher-end 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro with 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM is available for $1,399 from Amazon, which is a $100 discount and one of the lowest prices we've seen on that configuration.

The lower-end 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage can be purchased for $1,849.99 from Amazon, Adorama, and B&H, a $150 discount. The higher-end Retina MacBook Pro with 512GB of storage and 16GB of RAM can be purchased for $2,449 from Amazon, Adorama, and B&H, also a discount of $150.

Customers in many states may find it preferable to order from Adorama or B&H, as these sites only charge sales tax in New York/New Jersey and New York, respectively.

Before making a purchase of a Mac or iOS device, make sure to consult our Buyer's Guide to find out if it's a good time to buy. For example, while there are some good deals to be had on the current iMac, our Buyer's Guide does not recommend a purchase at this time because an update is coming soon -- and prices will drop even lower.

Ugh why spend $180 on the outdated Beats Studio when you can get the Audio-Technica M50x (http://georiot.co/AudioTechnicaM50x) for the same price. Do yourself a favor.

Not Stylish enough for you? No active noise-cancellation? You can get the Logitech UE6000 (http://amzn.to/1laxCrE) for next to nothing now that they've been sadly discontinued. They put the old Studios to shame. You're welcome.

Oh for the love… Don’t start this again.

3. Doesn't matter, they're still a distinct company and their products aren't designed or made my apple.
4. Yeah, but at least they're an Apple product. Beats is a distinct company owned by Apple. Beats headphones are still Beats headphones, not Apple headphones.
