'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Update: Prime Day 2021 is done and dusted, so the deals below are no longer valid. Check out our ZDNet Recommends hub for a better look at the latest deals available -- including roundups of the best products for businesses and professionals.
If you're looking for Apple deals online, Amazon's Prime Day has some offers you should check out. The Cupertino company hardly ever reduces its prices, not even on Black Friday, and it certainly doesn't need an Amazon Prime Day to sell its stuff!
But you can sometimes find deals for $25 off here or $50 off there, which isn't much considering Apple's devices usually cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. But, hey, we'll take what little savings we can, right?
Deals come and go over the two days, and I'll be updating this post with fresh deals, so keep checking back. Also, if you find a good deal I've missed, feel free to drop me a note (a Twitter DM probably gets the quickest response).
I'll be honest, I didn't expect to see Apple Silicon M1-powered Macs to be offered with any discounts, but here we are. the Mac Mini is the system most responsible for more people making the switch from Windows to Mac.
And here you're getting a whopping $100 off!
Apple M1 chip.
8-core CPU packs up to 3x faster performance.
8-core GPU with up to 6x faster graphics for graphics-intensive apps and games.
