Pre-order the new M2 MacBook PROs starting at $1299

Wallets at the e-ready! B&H Photo is now accepting pre-orders for the recently revealed M2 MacBook PROs starting at $1299 for the 8GB RAM with 256GB SSD model.

Memory options include 16GB and 24GB with a +$200 jump at each step. Storage options include 500GB and 1TB with a +$200 jump at each step, and a 2TB option with a +$800 on the base price.

Optionally B&H has a “buy together and save” option with a “up to $24 off” combined purchase discount on the Logitech MX Master 3 or MX Anywhere 3 mice. Which is reasonable, you don’t pay for M2 and then use a $10 Amazon mouse 🙂

Preorder the new 12.4″ Surface Laptop GO 2 for $700-$800

Per The Fairness Doctrine (TM), since we previously mentioned the M-series MacBooks we must also mention a Microsoft Surface product 😉

And what a coincidence, the “Surface Laptop GO 2”, a multi-touch 12.4-inch actual laptop is now available for pre-ordering for $700 (128GB on-board) or $800 (256GB) at B&H Photo and Amazon and such…

This has 8GB RAM, 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 4-Core (11th Gen), 12.4″ 1536 x 1024 PixelSense touchscreen with Intel Irix Xe graphics, Wifi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, one of each USB A and C ports, fingerprint reader, Windows 11, etc.

The laptop supports the Surface Pen but it is NOT included. It promises up to 13.5 hours battery life.

PS: 128GB is just too “Apple” (aka too little) for the price 🙂

IN-STOCK ALERT: MacBook PROs with M1 PRO/MAX

We have an in-stock alert! No, not the just-announced M2 MacBook AIRs, those will take some time, but the previously announced 14.2″ and 16.2″ Macbook PROs with the “M1 PRO” and “M1 MAX” chips are now in-stock and ready to ship at various configurations at B&H Photo.

A total of 19 options exist (too many to list here individually) with prices ranging from $2200 (M1 PRO 8-core, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 14.2″) to $4900.

The new just-announced M2 MacBook AIRs and PROs are now listed at B&H Photo but pre-orders are not accepted. Prices start at $1200 (8-core M2, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 13.6″), while the PRO goes for +$100. Meanwhile the first-generation M1 now start at $1000. Educational discounts are -$100.

Monoprice USB-C hub (w/4 USB-A 3.0) for $11 w/FS

It goes for $11 with FREE standard US shipping. Up to 20 per customer at the sale price.

It is also eligible for coupon code LAT15 (15% off laptop accessories until 5/31/22). Not sure if this is stackable with the sale price.

Now accepting pre-orders: iPad Airs (M1 chip)

If you are looking to buy the new M1 chipped iPad Airs, we have good news for you, B&H Photo is now accepting pre-orders, starting at $599…

We broke down the various options in our earlier post

iPad Airs with M1 chip: NO pre-orders yet

The star of the Apple March 2022 announcement were the previously mentioned MAC Studios but for fans of the M1 chip and iPads, they had some great news as well, as the fifth generation of the 10.9-inch iPad Air is getting the M1 processor now!

iPad Air (M1 chip) Pre-Orders NOT available
Pre-orders are not available yet (as of the time of writing) but you can plan ahead by perusing the detailed listing at B&H Photo. There are five color options this time, a sign that Apple is expecting a lot of sales and upgrades.

Prices start at $599 with (a rather miserable for the price) 64GB of storage. An extra +$150 takes you to 256GB of storage, but there is no 128GB option in-between. If you want 5G as well, that’s a +$150 as well. In other words, the top iPad Air is $899.

Compare to M1 iPad PROs of 2021
If you cannot wait for the Airs, or you are not mesmerized by their features/specs, let’s take a look at the existing iPad PROs that came out in 2021 with the M1 chip.

The 11-inch iPad PRO models start at $749 but with 128GB of on-board storage. 5G is a +$200. Storage options go up to 2TB, with the 256GB and 512GB steps being +$150 each.

The 12.9-inch iPad PRO models start at $999 with 128GB storage. 5G is +$200. Somehow storage is more expensive (!) on this model, with the 256GB being +$200 and the 512GB being +$300. Apple tax on top of the Apple tax 🙂

BUT that’s not all. Optionally you can add Apple Care for +$129/$149, and the Magical Mystical Supernatural Super Serious Sweet Delirious Magic Keyboard for +$299/$340. Higher prices for the 12.9″ models…

Pre-order the all-new Apple Mac Studios with M1 Ultra and M1 Max technologies

As Morrissey sang, Panic on the streets of Wintel! Apple has revealed their new line of “Mac Studio” computer boxes, and along with them comes the “M1 Ultra” line of processors, which is literally two “M1 Max” glued together with Apple’s magic special secret sauce that does not add overhead. As Apple revealed during the event, the “M1 Max” had some of the secret sauce built-in that Apple had not previously disclosed. Or something like that.

Anyways, wallets, open wide…

M1 ULTRA PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE
The new Mac Studios are now available for pre-ordering at B&H Photo. The official shipping date is March 18 but for some higher-demand models, the date can and will slip. YMMV as usual with highly anticipated new releases.

The 48-core GPU “M1 Ultra” models start at $3799 with 64GB RAM and 512GB on-board SSD storage, and peak at $6999 with 128GB RAM and 8TB storage. (The CPU is 20-core in both “M1 Ultra” options).

If 48 cores are not enough for your needs, the 64-core GPU “M1 Ultra” models start at $4799 with 64GB RAM and 512GB storage. That’s a +$1000 difference between this and the 48-core option. The peak of this is with 128GB RAM and 8TB for a very used Honda Civic price of $7999.

So if you want to check out the new “M1 Ultra” technology, the entry-point is $3799.

M1 MAX PREORDERS AVAILABLE
The “M1 Max” models have 10-core CPU and the variable here as well is the GPU…

The 24-core GPU options start with 32GB RAM and 512GB storage for $1999 and climb up to $4799 with 64GB RAM (no 128GB option) and 8TB storage.

If you want more GPU power, the 32-core GPU options with 32GB RAM and 512GB storage start at $2199. That’s $200 more for 8 GPU cores more. That’s just $25 per extra GPU core 😉 These too max out at 64GB RAM and 8TB storage for $4999.

So if you want to check out the new Mac Studios without paying an “Ultra” premium, the entry point is $1999. That’s nearly half of the entry-point “Ultra”, but the entry-point Ultra has double the RAM.

Needless to say, Wintel executives wake up at night with a Tim Cook on stage announcing new Mac PROs with “M1 Super Dooper MEGA Premium MAX Ultra” technology that glues together 64 “M1 Ultra” processors with no overhead 😉

Monday: new condition iPad PRO sale (2020 models)

The Woot daily deals greet Cyber Monday with an iPad PRO tablet sale featuring the 2020 models with prices ranging from $800 to $1150. The sale includes both the 11-inch (2nd generation) and the 12.9-inch (4th generation) models. These are new condition with a 1-year Apple warranty.

Meanwhile for Prime members only, good until Tuesday night, they have a B1G1 (buy 1 get 1) offer on t-shirts of all different kinds (including Santa)…

Apple sales at B&H including M chips!

For fans of all things Apple, B&H Photo is running an Apple Holiday sale that includes all kinds of Apple products (too many to list here individually) including some of the products using Apple’s new ground-breaking and Intel-panicking M chips! 🙂

Gift Ideas: Headphones w/Bluetooth & Noise Cancelling

And now we have a tech gift idea round-up [why not?], whether it is for you, or for your friends and family and frenemies 😉 We are talking about one of the hottest items in the market, major name-brand large headphones with both bluetooth and active noise cancelling…

+ SONY WH-1000X M4 (aka Mark 4) for $248 in two color options at B&H Photo and Amazon and Adorama (which offers a FREE Morphie 20,800 mAh powerbank and a cleaning cloth)

+ BOSE Quiet Comfort 45 for $279 in two color options at B&H Photo and Amazon and Adorama

+ APPLE Airpods MAX for $479 (Apple Tax (but not Sales Tax) included in the price) in various color options at B&H Photo and Amazon
+ not on sale at Adorama

Google Pixel 3 XL (64GB, unlocked) for $200

If you are looking for a budget pure Android phone that gets Android 12 but will not get any future OS updates, and you are not tempted by the boiling hot hype machine of the Google Pixel 6 ($600+ for the regular, $900+ for the PRO), then you may be interested in this limited time sale at B&H Photo, it is the new condition carrier-unlocked (T-Mobile Unlocked phone, works with CDMA and GSM) Google Pixel 3 XL (64GB, Just Black) on sale for $200 with free US shipping.

Note that the Pixel 3 will stop getting updates after October 2021 (as of the time of writing = NOW) per the Google help page. All Pixel phones before the Pixel 6 get three years of guaranteed OS and security updates. Starting with the Pixel 6, the security updates increase to five years. The OS updates remain at three years.

PS: for those not familiar with the Pixel line, keep in mind that there’s no microSD card and the non-a models do not have a headphone jack.

Pre-order the all new Pixel 6 phones for $599 or $899 [PRO] with FREE Pixel Buds

Google has just revealed their new Pixel 6 flagship phones and they priced them at old-school flagship prices. The actual flagship is the Pixel 6 PRO model going for $899 and for a limited time you can get free Google Pixel Buds at the B&H Photo pre-order page. The Google Store page is currently getting hammered as the hype machine is building steam for the phone.

Meanwhile the standard Pixel 6 (B&H Photo) is pre-orderable for $599 with the free Google Pixel Buds.

The above prices are for the 128GB models. The 256GB models go for $100 more on either options. As of the time of writing B&H only offers the 128GB models.

With the Pixel 6 models, Google is offering a minimum of five years of security updates.

The PRO flagship has an insane 12GB RAM, which cannot be found on most Windows computers LOL.

Google said during the live-stream that October 28 is the official release date…

More details on these and unboxings can be found on your favorite tech and smartphone websites and YouTubes and TikToks 🙂

UPDATE: meanwhile at the official Google USA store the Pixel 6 PRO models in the Unlocked option are already sold-out, while some of the options remain in the “Google FI” option. I did not check the Verizon option… The Pixel 6 standard model is not sold out because the HYPE MACHINE is roaring mainly for the PRO model.

Pre-order the new 6.8-inch Kindle Paperwhite starting at $140 (w/Ads, 8GB) OR Signature Edition for $190 (no Ads, 32GB, wireless charging, auto-adjusting light sensors)

Hooray-hooray e-reader fans! As rumor-leaked, Amazon has finally decided to increase the screen-size of the Paperwhite Kindle e-reader!

The new waterproof 6.8-inch Kindle Paperwhite e-reader is available for pre-ordering with an October 27 (2021) release date estimate. This is also known as the 11th generation Kindle.

The price of the 8GB base-model Paperwhite with Sponsored Ads is $140, and Without Ads is $160.

Unlike the past, this time around Amazon is adding more features and a different name to the 32GB model. IT is the Paperwhite Signature Edition and it goes for $190 (without Ads option only). So that’s only $30 more than the without-Ads base-model Paperwhite and you get three more benefits see paragraph below:

In addition to 32GB instead of 8GB, the Signature edition offers wireless charging AND auto-adjusting light sensors. These three features are NOT available on the 8GB base model. So 32GB is no longer just for manga and long complicated ebooks and PDFs and large libraries of ebooks/docs 🙂

Amazon also offers bundles with various accessories (cork case, fabric case, leather case) that include a wireless charging dock (for the 32GB Signature edition – NICE!). Needless to say these cost more but not a lot more. For example, the Leather bundle is only $230 (so it’s +$40 for the Leather accessories bundle)…

You can see most of the available bundles at the Kindle Bundle Best Sellers list…

For a limited time, the two adult Paperwhite models come with a 4-month FREE Kindle Unlimited subscription. A great way to read a LOT of ebooks (especially if you like to binge-read). Just post a couple of alerts in your calendar to cancel if you don’t want it to auto-renew. Or if you forget, pester the customer service to undo it 🙂

There’s also a Kids edition that is based on the base 8GB Paperwhite for $160 that includes enough freebies that some adults may choose to buy it? (free access to select Kindle Kids ebooks, 2-year worry-free guarantee). Three color options, one is black, the other two are kidz-stylez 😉

The now previous generation 8GB 6-inch Paperwhite (with Ads) has dropped to $80. I doubt the new 6.8″ Paperwhite is gonna get anywhere this close in price, somebody has to pay for the R&D that went into the new 6.8″ display and e-reader innards and wireless charging and such 😉

There’s also a 20% off Trade-In promotion. You get 20% off on this new purchase, PLUS a gift card for the value of your old Kindle. The system finds the Kindles linked to your account and automatically makes offers on them. For example, I got a $5 gift card ofer for one of the prehistoric Kindle with Keyboard devices. So the benefit is not the $5 I would get on the value of the old Kindle, but the 20% off discount I would get on the purchase price of the all new device!

PS: if you have any old unused Kindles hanging around, and want to get the 20% Trade-In discount, you may want to revitalize them (charge, link to your account, etc), to become eligible for the 20% off trade-in discount. Having said that, I don’t know if their system has any measures in place to prevent making upgrade offers on newly-registered devices. Unfortunately I don’t have any extra unregistered Kindles lying around to test it.

PS2: please feel free to send me the new 6.8″ Paperwhite Signature edition if you don’t want it 😉

Kindle Paperwhite down to $80 (or $70 certified refurbished)

Reading is FUN-da-MENTAL! And if you like to use e-ink e-book-readers for your reading, Amazon has a limited time promotion on their Kindle Paperwhite (8GB storage, waterproof, Ad Supported) going for $80. Or you can buy the “Without Ads” for $100. These are available in four different color schemes even!

Since this is an e-ink device, and not a phone/tablet, the ads are not annoying. You can start with the “Ad Supported” version and if you find you can’t stomach even the lite ads, you can pay Amazon a one time $20 fee to have them removed from a particular device. I personally found some interesting books to read through the ads but everyone’s tolerance to advertising is different.

If you want to save another $10, they have the certified refurbished option for $70. These sold on the Amazon website come with the same 1-year Amazon warranty as the new condition models. Note however that those sold at Woot as used/refurbished, only come with a 90-day warranty.

The one time I bought a certified refurbished Kindle I couldn’t tell the difference between a new and a refurbished. Another time they sent me a warranty-replacement of an early generation Paperwhite, again, I couldn’t tell the difference between new and refurbished.

If you want to sort out the different models, here’s a handy tablet at Wikipedia. The one on sale is the latest Paperwhite model, the Paperwhite 4, launched in November 2018… After that came two newer models in 2019, a new “basic Kindle” and a new “flagship Oasis”…

Shipping Friday: Apple Tags for $29 (or 4pk for $99)

If you are part of the Apple ecosystem and want to tag your “frequently lost” or “frequently hard to find” items, we have good news for you! The Apple Tags are going to begin shipping on Friday April 30 in 2021!

You can buy a single tag for $29 at B&H Photo and at Amazon itself and at Adorama

If you want more of these, Apple is selling them as 4-packs for $99, that’s like paying $24.75 per tag. You can get the 4-packs at Adorama and at Amazon itself and at B&H Photo

BUT WAIT, there’s more! Apple is also making AirTag Loops in multiple colors for easier and more color-cordinated attachment. Each one goes for $29 to $39 depending on color (there’s even a PRODUCT RED). You can get these at B&H Photo and at Adorama and also by Amazon itself

PS: if you don’t want/need the official Apple Loops, as expected, various third-parties, MFi or not, have a variety of them, eg at NewEgg’s

13.3″ MacBook M1 Air for $899 {w/AppleCare+ for $1128}

The newly announced “Spring Loaded” Apple gear (M1 iMac, M1 iPad PRO) are going on pre-order at the end of the month, but if you must needs have M1 now, B&H Photo has a M1 MacBook Air on sale until Monday 4/26/21 at 11:59pm ET (or earlier if sold out) as follows:

+ 13.3″ MacBook Air (late 2020, three color options) for $899
+ 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 13.3″ 2560×1600 Retina IPS, 7-core, 16-neurals

+ and if you …care about Apple Care, you can get it bundled with AppleCare+ Protection for $1128, that’s a +$229 on the laptop alone

$30 to $50 e-GiftCards with pre-orders of new OnePlus Nord smartphones ($180 and $300)

The tech world works in mysterious ways. While the most recent OnePlus flagship series was not greeted as a liberator, OnePlus had a surprise hit with their Nord affordable line. And they have revealed two new models in the Nord line at Diet CES 2021…

For a limited time, if you pre-order them during this window, B&H Photo will include a $30 or $50 (depending on model) B&H Photo e-gift card. The offer is good while you see it mentioned at the B&H product page, look for something like this: “Includes Free: 1 item ($30.00 value)”

The Nord N100 (64GB) goes for $180 with the $30 B&H e-gift card included automatically by B&H. This phone has 4G LTE (no 5G, so you won’t regrow a tail), with 4GB RAM, SnapDrogon 460 with Adreno 610, 6.52″ (1600×720, 90Hz, IPS-type LCD, Gorilla 3) screen, USB-C, headphone jack, microSD slot, Wifi 5, Bluetooth 5, fingerprint, etc.

If you want higher specs, the 5G Nord N10 (128GB) goes for $300 with a $50 B&H e-gift card included automatically by B&H while this promotion is running. This has 6GB of RAM, SnapDrogon 690 with Adreno 619L, 6.49″ (2400×1080, 90Hz, 405ppi, Gorilla 3, IPS-type LCD) screen, USB-C, headphone jack, microSD, Wifi 5, Bluetooth 5.1, etc…

NOTE: I don’t see NFC in the B&H specs of either at their aforelinked product pages, so this is something you may want to further look into if you want to use it for contactless payments and such… Under Q&A, for the Nord N10, a B&H staff member answered a customer-question saying this has NFC… But to be certain, be sure to google around multiple places, including the usually-reliable “phone arenas” and such…

Up to 40% off at the Best Buy Outlet

If you are a fan of the Best Buy way, they are currently having an “up to 40% off” sale on the Best Buy Outlet store, a mix of clearance and open-box items, and refurbished items, some of which come with their 6-month Geek-Nerd whatever-they-call-their-service warranty ~ check the listing details of individual products to determine that…

UPDATE: good until Saturday 10am ET, the Adorama dailies feature two items:

+ Gitup Git2 1080p Full HD Gyro Video Wi-Fi Action Camera, 60 fps, 170 Degree View Angle, 98′ Housing Waterproof, Pro Packaging for $65

Ends Tue PM: Apple M1 instant savings ($50 to $100 off, select options)

The M1 benchmarks and reviews and the sad state of Intel have made the current and future Apple M-series silicon computers a true non-hype breakthrough in the world of computing. Already there’s a 1140+ backer Patreon project by “marcan” to port Linux to the M1. Imagine Linux running on such a platform!

The M1X even-crazier performance rumors have cooled off some of the crazy demand for the first generation M1 computers, which mayhaps explain some of the surprise instant savings promotions…

Speaking of which, select M1 computers have an instant savings promotion running until Tuesday 12/22/20 at 11:59pm eastern at B&H Photo as follows:

+ 13.3″ MacBook PRO (Retina, 8GB, 256GB, Space Gray) for $1199
+ silver remains at $1299 starting price

+ Mac Mini (8GB, 256GB) for $639
+ a $60 off instant savings

+ Mac Mini (8GB, 512GB) for $849
+ a $50 off instant savings

+ as usual, keep in mind, shipment of high-demand items can be unpredictable and that’s before we consider the impact of COVIDalia

15% off select certified refurbished eBay items (248 options)

Good until 12/18/20 at 11:59pm pacific time, coupon code PURCHASECR15 gets you 15% off select participating certified refurbished products at the eBay website. As of the time of writing 248 items are participating in the coupon promotion… This is a “tech etc” type of an offer, I did not find any camera gear participating…

Black Friday only: NewEgg’s 24 hour e-newsletter offers

If you like your eggs new [HA!], NewEgg has launched a 24-hour Black Friday e-newsletter promotion. For items that have promo codes, it requires the “enter your email address” song and dance. Too many items to list here individually, so this is a DIY YMMV egg-y adventure…

NewEgg 24 hour Thursday BF Ultimate sale

Fans of the NewEgg way of doing things, they have launched their 24 hour Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) Ultimate BF sale with 98 pages of offers, with each page having 36 offers. These are slightly too many for me to digest before they expire, even if I do nothing else 🙂 So it is a YMMV DIY adventure 🙂

They have one page with digital cameras [they are probably all international models ~ double check if interested] and they have two pages of camera accessories (memory cards, Neewers, etc)…

Thursday: Huion Graphics Tablets (10 options, $28 to $560)

Wacom is the most famous but not the only one making graphics tablets. Hiding among the Thursday Amazon USA Gold Box deals du jour is a sale on ten Huion Graphics Tablets with prices ranging from $28 to $560, with six of the options being under $60.

In other deal du jour action, there’s this Keurig K-Cafe Special Edition Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee, Latte and Cappuccino Maker going for $190 in nickel or $170 in charcoal. It averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 10,700+ customer reviews as of the time of writing…

NewEgg Black Friday is here!

If you are fond of the way of the NewEgg, their Black Friday is here with another round of techie products on offer. As of the time of writing they have 91 pages of offers over there. Slightly too many for my Celeron-brain multi-tasking to go through and summarize on the fly, so this is a YMMV DIY adventure 🙂

B&H Tech Round-Up: 2TB Samsung SSD, 12TB MyBook, 12.9″ iPad PRO

And now some techie B&H Photo action! Expiring tonight (Thursday 11:59pm ET) is the new condition 12TB WD MyBook Desktop USB 3.0 External Hard Drive for $212 with free US shipping. That’s under $20 per TB. “My Book” are powered desktop HDDs. Needless to say, you need a backup of that 12TB, it’s scary to leave so many eggs in a single basket without additional backup 🙂 Probably don’t back it up on floppy disks or CD-Rs though 🙂

Speaking of storage, the new trend is SSD storage instead of spinning hard disks, and if you’re into that, the 2TB Samsung T5 portable SSD is on sale for $230, while the 1TB goes for $130. As of the time of writing these average 4.8 out of 5 based on 830+ ratings over there.

Next up, iPads! One way to lower your “Apple Tax” is to go with the previous generation model. If you follow that philosophy, B&H Photo is offering the new condition 12.9″ iPad PRO (previous generation) with 64GB on-board and Wifi and 4G LTE (Verizon unlocked, can be used with T-Mo and Big T) for $799 with free US shipping…

For more action, check the on-going B&H Black Friday deals
