Now that the iPad mini 4 is out, the iPad mini 3, which is basically an iPad mini 2 with Touch ID, has been discontinued by Apple. That means retailers have begun dropping prices on iPad mini 3 models that remain in stock, so it may be possible to get a good deal on an iPad mini 3 if you need to save a few bucks.

Prices are finally dropping on the Retina MacBook, five months after it first launched. Discounts are up to $150, so it's a good time to pick up one of Apple's ultra slim notebooks.

As always, we've also hunted down some great accessory deals and outlined a list of apps and games that are currently on sale.

iPad Air 2

Staples has discounted its iPad Air 2 lineup by $100, dropping the price on all WiFi and WiFi + Cellular models as low as $399.

Target is offering up to $100 off its selection of iPad Air 2 models. The best deal is on the 16GB Gold WiFi only model, which is available for $399 instead of $499.

Come on MacRumors, Staples has iPad Air 2 for $100 off MSRP for all models and Target has them on sale too, albeit not $100 off.
Really sorry, sometimes deals go under the radar because I only have a couple hours a week to put these posts together. I didn't see the Target/Staples deals -- definitely feel free to email me if you see an awesome deal somewhere. It's hard to keep track sometimes.

I'll edit the post to add the Target/Staples deals in.
