Whether you're after a classic MacBook, a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro, chances are you'll be able to pick up a discounted model in the New Year sales.

AirPod deals

Apple New Year sale: AirPods deals

We saw a fair few good AirPod discounts in the run-up to Christmas last year, on both the original AirPods and the AirPods Pro. These true wireless earbuds aren't quite as new and exciting now (and there's a fair bit of competition hitting the market from people like Amazon and Microsoft).
