    There are several deals on various Apple products this week, including the iPad Air and several MacBooks. Target, for example, is offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of any iPad Air model, which is perfect for users who are looking for a good deal on an iPad Air and don't need to wait for an upgraded model with Touch ID.

    Best Buy is also offering $50 to $125 off several Apple MacBooks, including multiple 2014 MacBook Air and Retina MacBook Pro models. This can be combined with Best Buy's EDU deals, which offer $50 off all MacBooks and $50 off iMacs.

    Retina MacBook Pro

    There are several other deals on the Retina MacBook Pro, letting prospective customers get $100 to $150 off from select sites. The 2.6Ghz/8GB/128GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,199.99 from Amazon B&H Photo, and Adorama. The 2.6Ghz/8GB/256GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,399 from Adorama, B&H Photo, and MacMall. The 2.8Ghz/8GB/512GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,699.99 from Amazon, Adorama, B&H Photo, and MacMall.

    The 15-inch 2.2Ghz/16GB/256GB Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,899 from Adorama and the standard non-retina MacBook Pro is available for $999 from Adorama and B&H Photo.

    There are also some deals on remaining stock of the 2013 Retina MacBook Pros. The 2.4Ghz/4GB/128GB 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is available for $1,099 from Adorama and B&H Photo. The 2.6Ghz/8GB/512GB 13-inch model is available for $1,549 from Adorama and B&H Photo. The 2.0Ghz/8GB/256GB 15-inch model is available for $1,599 from Adorama, and B&H Photo. The 2.0Ghz/16GB/512GB 15-inch model is available for $2,199 from Amazon, and Adorama.

    MacBook Air

    B&H Photo is still offering low prices on some of its remaining 2013 MacBook Air inventory. The 1.3Ghz/4GB/128GB 11-inch MacBook Air is available for $819, while the 1.3Ghz/4GB/256GB 11-inch MacBook Air is available for $889.

    B&H and Adorama, as always, are a good choice for buyers who live outside of New York and New Jersey, as the sites only charge sales tax in those states.

    Mac Pro

    Stock configurations of Apple's Mac Pro desktop computer are available at slightly discounted prices from several retailers this week. The 6-core 3.5Ghz/16GB/256GB machine can be purchased for $3,739.99 from Best Buy, Adorama, and B&H Photo, while the 4-core 3.7Ghz/12GB/256GB machine for $2,839.99 from Best Buy, Adorama, and B&H Photo.

    Apple Accessories

    Sabrent's stylish aluminum 4-port USB Hub for the Mac is available for $17.99, a discount of $7 off the regular price from Groupon. Sony's Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Lightning Dock is available for $169.99 from Groupon, a 32% discount.

    Any customers purchasing products via Groupon this week can get an additional 10% off one purchase with the coupon code GOODS10, which will work through 10/13.

    The popular Automatic Smart Driving Assistant can be purchased for $79.99 from Amazon, a discount of $19. Stacksocial is offering the Rain Design iRest iPad Stand for $35.99, down from its regular price of $50.

    Its not about the speed of the hub. It's how it looks.

    There's a reason why it's on sale :p

    Here's a similar one with 7 USB 3.0 ports if anyone's interested.

    The one above looks better with the shiny side, no apparent logo and no blue LED though.

    The standard MacBook Pro isn't even mentioned on Apple's "Mac" page anymore. And for the hardware specs, it's a complete ripoff. From the MR buyers' guide:
    I hope nobody is forced to buy this for whatever reason. It's more than 2 years outdated.

    Too bad Apple just doesn't put some USB ports on the front of the iMac.
