Here are some of this week’s best technology deals.
Apple 13-Inch Retina MacBook Pro (8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 5th Generation Dual-Core Intel i5 Processor
The MacBook Pro 13-Inch Retina is, perhaps, the best notebook ever made. You can get it at Best Buy this week for $1199 -- that's $100 off the regular price. This is the 2015 version of the MacBook Pro Retina, which has the Intel Broadwell processor. Battery life is absolutely outstanding and even though the i5 processor isn't as powerful as the i7, this MacBook Pro is more than adequate for using such graphics-intensive programs such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and even Adobe Illustrator. You wont ever regret purchasing one of Apple's most groundbreaking devices.
TaoTronics Wireless Sports Earbuds
TeoTronics isn't a very well-known name, but they do make good low-end earbuds and earphones. These wireless sports earbuds are only $22.99 on Amazon.com -- that's $77 off the regular price. Not only do they offer Bluetooth 4.0, but there is also active noise cancellation, which works even when you make phone calls on crowded streets or noisy malls. The sound quality is excellent for a pair of earbuds under $100. These are the perfect earbuds to work out with.
Canon PowerShot SX530 16MP Digital Camera
Don't listen to the hype; smartphones still can't take pictures like high quality digital cameras can. Canon has always made the best digital cameras, even if the interfaces of the cameras haven't always been user-friendly. The PowerShot SX530 only costs $279.99 at Target this week -- that's $150 off the regular price. You won't really be able to fit this camera in your pocket unless you want somebody to give you the "Are you happy to see me?" line. The camera has an incredible 50X zoom lens. That means you can zoom in to the max and still come out with absolutely clear 1080p video clips and 16MP still photos. After you take pictures and videos with the SX530, you'll never want to take them with your smartphone again.
