Lots of devices this week, so if you're getting ready to go back to school, now's the time for picking up some killer deals that will rock your world without smashing your budget. We're talking MacBooks and iPads alike, so read on and find the deal for you.
If you haven't already read the harrowing story of what happened to a Wired editor when hackers exploited a few security flaws, then you owe it to yourself. It's rather terrifying, how porous our online digital lives can be, but luckily we also have an article on there to help boost your online security a little and give you a bit more control. It's the least we could do.
When Apple refreshed its laptop line in June 2012, the entry-level price of the 13-inch MacBook Air came down by $100, to just $1,199. Surprise, that’s also the price of the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro. We can’t remember Apple having two entry-level machines like this--in the days of the white plastic MacBook, that was always the rock-bottom-priced option, and until this revision, the MacBook Air was always slightly more expensive than the MacBook Pro, since the Air’s fancy, shrunken innards cost a premium. So now the question becomes how to choose.
We usually have some killer deals on Macs or we have a bevy of cases for your inspection, but this week our hottest deal is on an iPad. Now, if you're in the market for a Mac, we've got a couple that might suit and there will never be and end to cases or case sales, so we've got that covered too. But if you've been holding out on buying an iPad, perhaps a look below at this price will entice you.

After releasing OS X Mountain Lion and a slew of supporting application updates on Wednesday, you'd think Apple would have taken a break -- but instead, new MacBook Air owners received a firmware update to enable the new Power Nap feature.
The iPad is the perfect travel companion since it can play music and movies over the course of a long flight without running out of power. It’s lighter than the lightest MacBook Air. And when it’s time to hunker down and get some work done, the one-app-at-a-time reality of iOS keeps me focused on what I need to do instead of juggling windows and getting sucked in to online shoe shopping.
