Amazon is still slashing prices on its inventory of Apple gear in the wake of this week’s iPhone event, while Walmart and Best Buy get props for managing to keep a new special-edition Nintendo Switch – OLED Model in stock.

Why we like it

The best part about new Apple announcements is discounts on all their other stuff. If you’re in the market for a new laptop, the 2022 MacBook Air with the M2 chip can’t be beat — especially when it’s $100 off(opens in a new tab). It’s speedier and more responsive than ever, boasts a bigger and lighter Retina display, a non-Butterfly keyboard (thankfully), and an impressive 18-hour battery life. Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry says “anyone who’s been rocking an older MacBook for a while should upgrade to this one ASAP.”

It’s not a “deal” per say, but we figured it’s worth flagging the fact that Walmart(opens in a new tab) and Best Buy(opens in a new tab) had the new Splatoon 3-themed Nintendo Switch – OLED Model in stock at the time of writing. (Meanwhile, it’s completely sold out at Amazon(opens in a new tab) and the My Nintendo Store(opens in a new tab).) This is the console‘s first special-edition colorway since launching last fall.

Why we like it

Our favorite fitness tracker for kids, the Fitbit Ace 3 helps kids get interested in a more active lifestyle. Kids can challenge their friends to step competitions and send messages, get rewarded with virtual badges and on-screen celebrations, and more, while parents can set goals and reminders for their kiddos. As the school year kicks off, it’s not a bad idea to keep them as active as they were throughout the summer. And for just under $50, the Fitbit Ace 3(opens in a new tab) is an affordable way to keep tabs on their activity.
