Best Tech Deals for Labor Day 2022: Apple Devices, TVs, Laptops and More

All the Best Labor Day Tech Deals You Can Find This Weekend

Arstecnica

Labor Day weekend is not known to be a particularly fruitful time for electronics trading. Generally speaking, so is this year. As always, Black Friday, Cyber ​​Monday, and other holiday sales leading up to the end of the year offer greater savings for those who can afford to wait.

That said, there are still some notable discounts going on right now on gadgets and gear we love.

Highlights include the lowest prices tracked for Apple’s 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, with $400 off the entry-level versions at $1,599 and $2,099 respectively. Obviously, this is still quite a change, and it’s worth noting that updated versions of these notebooks could be announced as early as next month. It’s also more valuable to most people who need it. But for developers, visual creatives, or power users who want the extra ports, multi-core performance, and GPU power the pros can offer, these deals are still worth it today.

Beyond that, there’s also a new low for LG’s C2 OLED TV, along with other well-reviewed joint 2022 TV lows from Samsung and Hisense. Headphones, some video games, a Peacock subscription, Sony’s DualSense PS5 controller, gaming monitors and much more at a discounted price. Here are our handpicked Labor Day deals.
