The MacBook Air is Apple's most affordable notebook, offering a solid compromise between cost, performance, and size. In November 2020, the MacBook Air became the first Mac to transition entirely to Apple Silicon chips from Intel processors.
The new MacBook Air comes with Apple's new M1 chip that includes an 8-core CPU, a 7- or 8-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. It comes with 8GB of unified memory standard (configurable up to 16GB), and can be configured with up to 2TB of SSD storage.

The MacBook Pro is the most powerful notebook Apple sells, although the lineup is a bit confusing right now. In November 2020, Apple introduced new 13-inch MacBook Pro models based on Apple's new M1 chip that includes an 8-core CPU, an 8-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. Pricing starts at $1,299 for these models.
At the higher-end, Apple is continuing to sell 13-inch models that were introduced in May 2020 and feature 10th-generation Intel processors. While the M1 chip appears to handily outperform Intel's processors in early benchmarks, the Intel models come with some advantages such as four Thunderbolt 3 ports instead of just two on the lower-end models. Pricing starts at $1,799 for these models.
Finally, the larger 16-inch model introduced in November 2019 comes with a 6-core or 8-core Intel 9th-generation processor, AMD 5000M series graphics and up to 64GB RAM. Pricing starts at $2,399 for the 16-inch MacBook Pro.

Apple introduced a completely redesigned iPad Air in mid-September 2020, and it became available for pre-order on October 16 ahead of an October 23 launch, but we'll also be tracking deals on the 2019 model for the time being.
The new fourth-generation iPad Air is Apple's mid-tier tablet with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display and an A14 Bionic chip. It's less expensive than the iPad Pro but offers many of the same features, while it's substantially more expensive than the $329 entry-level iPad.

It works with the second-generation Apple Pencil and supports the Magic Keyboard and Smart Keyboard Folio. For more info on the iPad Air, make sure to check out our iPad Air roundup.
Some retailers are continuing to sell the previous-generation iPad Air, although Apple has discontinued it, so availability may be sporadic and will decline over time. Introduced in March 2019, the third-generation iPad Air offers an A12 Bionic chip, Touch ID Home button, headphone jack, and a 10.5-inch display with wide color and True Tone.
Updated in September 2020, the current version of the iPad is Apple's most affordable tablet. It offers a 10.2-inch display, as well as support for Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories.

Updated in March 2019, the AirPods are Apple's totally wire-free earbuds that are meant to compensate for the lack of a headphone jack on modern iPhones. Available for $159 with a standard case or $199 with a wireless charging case, the AirPods feature an Apple-designed H1 chip and connect to devices over Bluetooth. AirPods work like magic, starting and stopping when placed into or removed from the ears, and switching between Apple devices with ease.
In October 2019, Apple introduced AirPods Pro for $249, with a sealing in-ear design to support noise cancelation technology and improved sound. AirPods Pro have shorter stems than the regular AirPods, and squeezing and holding the stem activates various noise cancelation modes.
