Despite the approach of the Easter holiday, there aren't too many deals available this week. We've had good prices on the iPad for the last few weeks, but most sales have ended, so if you're planning to buy one of Apple's newest tablets, you might want to hold off for a week or two until prices drop a bit further.

That said, there are some good discounts on the Retina iMac and other iMacs, and 2014 MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models continue to be available at low prices.

We've also got a lot of apps on sale this week, and there are a few Apple-related accessories available on the cheap, including Beats headphones.

iPad Air 2

Best Buy continues to offer the lowest prices we've seen on a few select iPad Air 2 models. The 16GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in silver is available for $499.99, $130 off its regular price. The 64GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in silver is available for $599.99, $130 off. The 128GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in silver is priced at $699.99, also a $130 discount.
