As we head into the second week of May, deals on Macs and Apple accessories continue to be good. It's an excellent time to buy a newer MacBook Air or Retina MacBook Pro, or pick up an older 2014 model at a cheap price.

There are some limited deals on iPads this week, and we've also rounded up plenty of Mother's Day discounts on products and a list of apps that can be purchased on the cheap.
