Best Labor Day Tech Deals 2022: Apple Devices, TVs, Laptops, and More

Ars Technica

Labor Day weekend isn’t known as an especially fruitful time for deals on electronics, and generally speaking, that’s the case again this year. As usual, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and other holiday sales toward the end of the year will bring bigger savings to those who can afford to wait.
That said, there are still a handful of notable discounts currently going on for gadgets and gear we like, so for our latest Dealmaster roundup, we’ve compiled the best Labor Day tech deals we can find below.
The highlights include the lowest prices we’ve tracked for Apple’s 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros, the entry-level versions of which are each $400 off at $1,599 and $2,099, respectively. That’s still a good chunk of change, clearly, and it’s worth noting that refreshed versions of these notebooks could be announced as soon as next month. The recently overhauled MacBook Air is a better value for most people in need of a new Mac, too. But for developers, visual creatives, or power users that need the extra ports, multi-core performance, and GPU power the Pros can provide, there’s still value to be had with these deals today.
Beyond that, we’ve also got a new low on LG’s C2 OLED TV, plus joint-lows on other well-reviewed 2022 TVs from Samsung and Hisense. We also have cheaper-than-usual prices on Apple’s Pencil stylus and high-end AirPods Max headphones, several video games, Peacock subscriptions, Sony’s DualSense PS5 controller, gaming monitors, and much more. You can find our full curated list of Labor Day deals below.
