If you’re in the market for a MacBook upgrade, you can do it on a budget with this deal on the M2 MacBook Air. Originally released in 2022 for $1,099, the 13.6-inch MacBook Air (M2, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) now retails for $999 (since the release of the 15-inch M2 Air). However, now that the M3 line is out, we’re starting to see even more impressive deals. Case in point: as of April 30, you can snag the base model M2 Air for only $849.99 with the on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s just 99 cents away from its record-low price. It may no longer be the latest and greatest MacBook on the market, but the M2 processor is beyond capable of handling everyday tasks and then some. Upon testing, Mashable Tech Reporter Alex Perry concluded that it has “rock-solid battery life, a larger 13.6-inch display than previous models, a keyboard that’s to die for, and enough horsepower to handle everyday tasks with ease.”

The Echo Pop has made our roundup of the best Amazon deals of the day quite a few times this month. And as of April 30, it just got $3 cheaper. The cute Echo Pop speaker is a fun way to add Alexa — and some color — to your home. “For people who like to keep music playing, and who also use Alexa as a home assistant, the Echo Pop is a perfect addition to any room in the house,” Mashable’s reviewer wrote. It’s currently just $19.99 at Amazon — a savings of 50%. That’s still $2 shy of its all-time low, but 7% cheaper than it was just last week.

Mashable’s Alex Perry called the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro a “no-brainer” for Samsung fans upon their release in 2022, highlighting their powerful audio quality and ANC, comfortable build, and array of customization features for Samsung devices. We featured them last week at $169.99, but as of April 30, they’ve dropped another $10 at Amazon. Snag a pair for only $159.99 in time for your summer travels — that’s a savings of 30%.

If you’re looking for a unique Mother’s Day gift, check out this deal on the Kodak Dock Plus 4PASS — an instant photo printer that transforms a smartphone into a digital printing studio. It’s compatible with both Android and iOS devices and prints high-quality 4 x 6 inch photos in seconds. With the compatible Kodak Photo Printer app, you can even add decorative features like filters and frames to your photos before printing. The printer comes with 90 sheets of photo paper to get you started and is currently on sale for just $125.98 at Amazon — that’s 37% in savings and just $6 shy of its all-time low price.


Apple AirPods Pro (2nd generation)

at Amazon

$249.00
Save $70.00



AirPods deals are here one day and gone the next, so if you’re in the market for the new AirPods Pro, we suggest snagging this deal while you can. As of April 30, the second-generation Apple earbuds are on sale for just $179 rather than $249. That’s a savings of 28% and a full $20 cheaper than they were just a couple of days ago. It’s also the first time they’ve dropped to a price this low. Mashable Senior Editor Stan Schroeder summed up the second-generation AirPods Pro perfectly: “Apple has improved the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) in many small ways. They sound great and the noise cancellation is stellar, but if you already have the original AirPods Pro, the new ones are not an essential upgrade.”
