Twelve South just refreshed its popular MacBook stand last month with the new Curve Flex. This all-aluminum offering arrives with an adjustable design that lets you elevate your machine in plenty of different ways. I walked away quite impressed in my hands-on review, which you can read for a more in-depth look at the features. There are also plenty of other offers to join the featured Apple MagSafe charger marker markdown, as well.
AirPods Max return to lowest price of the year with Spatial Audio
Apple’s AirPods Max boast one of the more lofty price tags for a pair of ANC headphones these days, but Amazon just made the listening experience even more affordable ahead of Labor Day. Right now, you can score the headphones in several styles starting at $370. Normally fetching $549, you’re looking at as much as $179 in savings and a new all-time low at $59 under previous discounts.

Not to mention, you’ll find as premium of a design as they come which is comprised of aluminum, a knit-mesh canopy, and memory foam ear cushions. Since launch, AirPods Max have faced some fallout for the hard to swallow price tag, but today’s price cut offers another to chance to score Apple’s flagship listening experience for less.

M1 Pro MacBook Pros fall to new lows of $400 off
One of the most notable Labor Day deals we’ll see period is also still live, with Amazon offering Apple’s latest 14-inch M1 Pro MacBook Pro 512GB for $1,599 to kick off all of the early Labor Day savings. Normally fetching $1,999, today’s $400 discount is now down to a new all-time low at $200 under our previous mention. We’ve never seen it anywhere close to the discounted price today, making the high-end machine more affordable than ever.
While the new M2 MacBook Air has been hogging much of the spotlight in the Apple world lately, the higher-end M1 Pro delivers much of the same modern design with an even more capable feature set. Everything starts with the improved 14-inch Liquid Retina XDR 120Hz Display that’s backed by the higher-end chip – then you’ll find a 10-core CPU, up to 17-hour battery life, and the triumphant return of MagSafe charging. See why it was our Apple product of the year.
