Add Best Buy to the list of retailers rolling out its big plans for Black Friday 2019. At the moment, there’s a ton of Apple gear available with significant discounts. In fact, Best Buy is matching or setting the all-time lowest prices on the Apple Watch Series 4, this year’s MacBook Air, the brand-new 10.2-inch iPad and the HomePod smart speaker. And there are also killer deals on Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 7, Beats headphones and much more. 

Note that you need to be a member of the company’s My Best Buy rewards program, the basic tier of which is free, to take advantage of some of these sale prices. Discounts are available online and in-store. The highlights are as follows.

Courtesy of Best Buy’s $80 discount, this is by far the lowest price we’ve seen for the brand-spanking-new 10.2-inch iPad, which has a larger screen and more Pro-level features than its predecessor.

Sure, this entry-level configuration has lower-end components (Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD). But you’re still getting the best Windows two-in-one tablet, with the Type Cover thrown in, for $600. This is a dynamite deal.
