If you’re in the market for a new MacBook, you can currently buy the 13-inch, M1-equipped MacBook Pro in the Space Gray livery at Best Buy at $1099.99, a hefty discount on a laptop that usually costs $1,299.99. This particular configuration comes with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and Apple’s M1 processor, which can’t compete with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips found in the larger 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro, but still plenty of sustained high-quality performance.
The 13-inch screen on the 2020 model of the MacBook Pro is also remarkably vibrant, with a native resolution of 2560 x 1600 and support for Apple’s True Tone technology, which dynamically adjusts your screen’s color temperature based on the environment. Keep in mind, though, that the 13-inch MacBook Pro is relatively light in terms of port selection, and the only model in Apple’s current lineup that still has the divisive Touch Bar, which, for better or for worse, will does away with the classic function keys.

AMD recently announced its Zen 3 CPUs and it was incredibly hard to find them in stock. But today, some of the most powerful models of this generation of gaming CPUs are currently on sale at multiple retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, and B&H Photo.
The Ryzen 9 5950X, which initially sold for $799.99 at release, is currently discounted to $559.99 at Amazon and B&H Photo, a hefty discount on the 16-core CPU. It is equipped with 32 threads and a maximum boost speed of 4.9 GHz, and like the previous generation of AMD CPUs, it is compatible with motherboards equipped with an AM4 socket.
If you’re looking for a cheaper model with a slightly lower performance ceiling, the Ryzen 9 5900X is also available at Amazon and walmart at $384.99 ($185 off), the lowest price we’ve seen on the CPU yet. The 5900X is equipped with 12 cores and 24 threads of processing power, as well as a maximum clock speed of 4.8 Ghz, which still gives it more than enough power for modern gaming.
Both processors are an excellent deal, especially for anyone upgrading from an existing AMD-based desktop. Please note that unlike AMD’s previous generation processors, these CPUs do not come with their own coolers.
