The MacBook Air is Apple's most affordable notebook, offering a solid compromise between cost, performance, and size. In June 2022, Apple updated the MacBook Air with the new M2 chip and a completely redesigned unibody enclosure. It'll launch officially in July 2022.
The new notebook has a slightly larger 13.6-inch display with up to 500 nits of brightness, a fanless design, MagSafe charging, two Thunderbolt ports, and a headphone jack. With an M2 chip, the new MacBook Air is available with an 8-core GPU and up to a 10-core GPU. The notebook can be configured with up to 2TB of SSD storage, along with up to 24GB of unified memory.
The M2 MacBook Air replaces the 2020 M1 MacBook Air, which has an 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. To read more on the MacBook Air, check out our MacBook Air roundup.
The MacBook Pro is the most powerful notebook Apple sells, although the lineup is a bit confusing right now. In October 2021, Apple launched the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. Both chips feature a 10-core CPU with eight high-performance cores and two high-efficiency cores, and there is a lower-end 8-core model available for the entry-level 14-inch MacBook Pro. Pricing on the 14-inch starts at $1,999 and the 16-inch starts at $2,499.
The 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro are middle-tier and high-end options that are being sold alongside the more affordable 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is now equipped with an M2 chip. Apple announced the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip at WWDC in June 2022, and it'll be made available to purchase in July 2022.
Priced starting at $1,299, the M2 MacBook Pro features a standard 13-inch display and the old MacBook Pro design. For more information about the MacBook Pro, make sure to check out our MacBook Pro roundup.
Apple's iMac is an ultra-thin all-in-one desktop computer that was refreshed with a new design, M1 chips, and new color options in April 2021. The radically redesigned iMac comes in a range of fun colors and features a 24-inch 4.5K display and an Apple-designed "M1" Arm-based chip to bring significant speed and efficiency improvements.
In addition to the new 24-inch model, Apple also sells a larger 27-inch model with 5K display that has yet to see a redesign and remains based on Intel processors. There is also an entry-level 21.5-inch model based on Intel's older 8th-generation Coffee Lake chips and includes only a 1920 x 1080 display. For more information about the iMac, make sure to check out our iMac roundup.
The new 24-inch model became available in May 2021 following pre-orders in late April. The 27-inch iMac was updated in August 2020, while the 21.5-inch iMac hasn't seen a significant update since March 2019.
The Mac mini is Apple's most affordable and compact desktop computer, positioned as a "bring your own" machine that comes without a mouse, keyboard, or display. Similar to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, Apple in November introduced new Mac mini models based on an Apple M1 chip while continuing to sell more expensive models equipped with Intel processors.
The Mac mini features a square design with a 1.4-inch thin 7.7-inch wide aluminum unibody enclosure, and the M1 models come in Silver while the Intel models come in Space Gray. Pricing starts at $699 for the M1 models and $1,099 for the Intel models, and for more information about the Mac mini, make sure to check out our Mac mini roundup.
The Mac Pro is Apple's desktop machine for professionals. An all-new Mac Pro was announced in June 2019, and it launched in December 2019.
The new Mac Pro is a high-end high-throughput machine designed for Apple's pro user base. Apple learned from its mistakes and the thermal limitations of the design of the 2013 Mac Pro, and the new Mac Pro features a design that's similar to the rectangular 2012 Mac Pro, focusing heavily on upgradeability and expansion. For more information about the Mac Pro, make sure to check out our Mac Pro roundup.
The Mac Pro starts at $5,999 with prices rapidly escalating from there depending on upgrades, and there are a wide array of them, so make to check your retailers of choice to see pricing on custom configurations.
Apple in March 2022 announced the powerful new "Mac Studio" desktop computer, which is meant to be paired with the Studio Display external monitor. The Mac Studio is 3.7-inches tall and it looks similar to a larger Mac mini.
However, it is far more powerful than the Mac mini. The computer can be configured with the same M1 Max chip as found in the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro or the just-announced M1 Ultra chip, which features a 20-core CPU, up to a 64-core GPU, and a 32-core Neural Engine. Additionally, it can be configured with up to 8TB of SSD storage and up to 128GB of unified memory.
Paired with the 27-inch Studio Display, Apple's new setup is now replacing the 27-inch iMac as the company's high-end desktop computer solution. The Studio Display has a slim all-aluminum enclosure, 5K resolution, up to 600 nits of brightness, support for the P3 wide color gamut and over one billion colors, a built-in stand that allows the user to tilt the display up to 30 degrees, an A13 Bionic chip that powers advanced camera and audio features, and more.
The Mac Studio is priced starting at $1,999 for the model with M1 Max and at $3,999 for the model with M1 Ultra.
The Apple Watch is Apple's popular wristworn device, currently available in three different models. The Apple Watch Series 7 is the current flagship device, featuring 41mm and 45mm casing size options with larger always-on displays, faster charging, and Apple's full set of health sensors including heart rate, ECG, and blood oxygen.
Apple also sells the Apple Watch SE, a lower-cost option with slightly smaller displays without always-on capabilities and which lacks ECG and blood oxygen sensors. At the bottom of Apple's lineup is the Apple Watch Series 3, a much older model that is difficult to recommend given its many compromises.
The Apple TV is Apple's set-top box, designed to bring the Apple ecosystem to the television. The fifth-generation Apple TV, the Apple TV 4K, was originally released in October of 2017 and was updated in April 2021 with an A12 Bionic chip, high frame rate HDR support, and a redesigned Siri Remote. The Apple TV 4K comes with 32 or 64GB of storage. To read more about the Apple TV, make sure to check out our Apple TV roundup.
Apple also sells an earlier fourth-generation Apple TV HD for $149 with all of the same features but no support for 4K or HDR. It was repackaged with the redesigned Siri Remote in April 2021.
Apple's iPad Pro lineup features two tablets, one with a 12.9-inch screen size and one with an 11-inch screen size, both of which were updated in April 2021 for a launch in May.
Apple's iPad Pro models feature edge-to-edge Retina displays with ProMotion 120Hz technology, True Tone support, and Wide Color for vivid, true-to-life colors, with the 12.9-inch model using a mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR display for improved brightness and contrast. The iPad Pro models have no Home button and instead use Face ID, enabled through a TrueDepth camera system.
The same M1 chips found in Apple's latest Macs have made their way to the iPad Pro, and they come equipped with 12-megapixel Wide and 10-megapixel Ultra Wide rear cameras and a LiDAR scanner for capturing ultra-accurate depth information for augmented reality experiences. The two iPad Pros support the Apple Pencil 2, a thin-tipped pressure-sensitive stylus that can be used for drawing, sketching, and writing, and they work with an optional Smart Keyboard Folio accessory and an upcoming Magic Keyboard folio-type accessory that includes a trackpad. For more information about the iPad Pro, make sure to check out our iPad Pro roundup.
Deal hunters may also want to look to the 2020 iPad Pro models, which may be available at steeper discounts now that updated models have been introduced. The 2020 models include many of the same features, but are powered by a previous-generation A12Z Bionic chip and both sizes feature a standard LCD that still offers ProMotion, True Tone, and Wide Color support.
Apple introduced a completely redesigned iPad Air in March 2022, but we'll also be tracking deals on the 2020 model for the time being.
The new iPad Air is Apple's mid-tier tablet with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display and the M1 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 features Apple's Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage for a more natural video conferencing experience, a USB-C port with up to 2x faster transfer speeds, Touch ID built into the top button, and 5G on the cellular models.

Apple in September 2021 updated the 10.2-inch iPad, and it remains the most affordable entry in Apple's tablet lineup. It features an A13 Bionic chip with up to 20 percent faster performance, a True Tone display, an upgraded 12-megapixel ultra-wide front camera, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
It comes with Gigabit-class LTE for cellular models, 10-hour battery life, Touch ID, Apple Pay and Apple Pencil support, and 802.11ac Wi-Fi. For more information on the iPad, make sure to check out our iPad roundup.
Standard pricing for the iPad starts at $329, but we've yet to see any discounts on it since it's brand-new. Until we see steep discounts on the newest tablet, we'll continue to track deals on the previous generation from 2020.
iPad Mini 6
At 8.3 inches, the iPad mini 6 is Apple's smallest tablet. The new iPad mini sports the same full-screen design as the iPad Pro and iPad Air, with no Home button and Touch ID support in the Power Button. It features a new Ultra Wide front camera with a 12-megapixel sensor, and a back camera with a 12-megapixel sensor.
It includes the A15 Bionic chip, making it up to 40 percent faster in CPU performance compared to the previous generation, and supports the Apple Pencil.

Last updated in October 2021, 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 $179, the new AirPods 3 feature a compact stem, redesigned contoured fit, Adaptive EQ, sweat resistance, spatial audio support, and more. 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.

In November 2020, Apple launched HomePod mini, which offers a scaled-down smart speaker experience priced at just $99.
