Apple resellers on Tuesday are offering some of the first discounts on 2016 12-inch MacBooks, while a few remaining 2015 models are marked down as low as $964. Meanwhile, grab a 128GB 12.9" iPad Pro with WiFi+LTE for just $799 (or upgrade to a MacBook Air for the same price). Also a DJI Phantom 4 bundle includes 2 additional batteries and a $150 eBay Gift Card to back out their cost.
2016 12" MacBooks
Apple authorized resellers B&H Photo and Amazon this week are knocking $50-$70 off a pair of Apple's new 1.2GHz 12-inch MacBooks in Space Grey and Rose Gold, both of which are the lowest prices we've seen for these brand new models in our Mac Price Guide. They are also the first and only material discounts we've seen on the 2016 MacBooks with the exception of a short-lived $100 discount on the Rose Gold MacBook several weeks ago. In addition to the discounts and free shipping, B&H won't collect tax on its orders if shipped outside NY.

12" Space Gray (1.2GHz/8GB/512GB) for $1,549.00 @ B&H ($50 off + no tax outside NY & NJ)

Additionally, B&H now has virtually all of the Early 2016 12" MacBook models in stock, with no sales tax if you ship your order outside NY state. This will save most shoppers an average of $100 compared to purchasing direct from Apple. Each also includes free expedited shipping and a no hassle return policy.
For additional savings, shoppers may want to consider one of Apple's remaining 2015 12-inch MacBooks, which offer similar performance to this years models at discounts of up to $335. The models that remain available from Apple authorized reseller Adorama also include 3 free accessories (including a super drive and Apple USB-Type C adapter) and no tax outside NY and NJ:

$280 off 12.9" iPad Pros
While supplies last, eBay on Tuesday is teaming up with top-rated seller MobilePros1 to offer Apple's Late 2015 12.9-inch 128GB iPad Pros (WiFi + LTE) — in either Silver, Space Gray, or Gold — for $799.00 with free shipping. That's $280 off Apple's price and the lowest price available anywhere for either of these models by $200, according to our iPad Price Guide. This is also the lowest price we've ever seen for these models since their introduction. This deal is expected to sell out.
128GB Silver (WiFi + LTE) for $799.00 ($280 off)
128GB Space Gray (WiFi + LTE) for $799.00 ($280 off)
128GB Gold (WiFi + LTE) for $799.00 ($280 off)
13" MacBook Air for $829
13" MacBook Air (1.6GHz, 4GB, 256GB)
$1,099.00 $949.00 ($250 discount)
Deciding between a 12.9" iPad and a lightweight MacBook? B&H also has a handful of the 1.6GHz, 4GB, 128GB 13" MacBook Air models remaining in stock and is offering them to AppleInsider readers for the same $829.00 price tag as the discounted iPad Pros listed above, plus each comes with free shipping and no sales tax if your delivery address is outside NY. That's $170 off Apple's price and the lowest price anywhere for this model by $20, according to our Mac Price Guide. Meanwhile, the new baseline model with a 1.6GHz processor, 8GB or RAM and a 128GB solid-state drive is available for $949.00.
DJI Phantom 4 Super Bundle
DJI Phantom 4 Bundle for $1,559.00 ($178 off + Free $150 eBay Gift Card)
Also on Tuesday, eBay's deal of the day is DJI's new Phantom 4 FPV Camera Drone w/4K Camera and 2 additional batteries ($338 value) for $1,559.00, but then eBay is throwing in a $150 eBay Gift Card with each order. This effectively brings the cost of this bundle down to $1,399, which essentially nets shoppers the 2 additional batteries at no added cost (if you plan to use the $150 eBay Gift Card).
