Add Best Buy to the list of retailers rolling out its big plans for Black Friday 2019. At the moment, there's a ton of Apple gear available with significant discounts. In fact, Best Buy is matching or setting the all-time lowest prices on the Apple Watch Series 4, this year's MacBook Air, the brand-new 10.2-inch iPad and the HomePod smart speaker. And there are also killer deals on Microsoft's new Surface Pro 7, Beats headphones and much more.

Courtesy of Best Buy's $80 discount, this is by far the lowest price we've seen for the brand-spanking-new 10.2-inch iPad, which has a larger screen and more Pro-level features than its predecessor.

Since the new Series 5 debuted in September, the Series 4 has been priced at about $440. Now, Best Buy has it for $349. 

And if you're looking for something more premium, you can also now pick up the stainless steel edition of this watch for $399 -- that's $250 off the previous $649 price.

2019 13-inch MacBook Air (128GB SSD): $900

Apple sliced $50 off the price of the HomePod back in April. But Best Buy has picked up the knife for some additional trimming. This is the lowest price we've ever seen on Apple's smart speaker.

Sure, this entry-level configuration has lower-end components (Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD). But you're still getting the best Windows two-in-one tablet, with the Type Cover thrown in, for $600. This is a dynamite deal.

$599.00 AT BEST BUY

CNET editors' 2019 holiday picks

a close up of a remote control: Not sure what to get this holiday season? At CNET we've reviewed hundreds of devices this year, and the best ones make great gifts, whether you're looking to spend $20 or $2,000. The Echo Dot with Clock keeps all the best elements of 2018's Dot and adds a smart quality-of-life upgrade in the form of an LED clock display. "Before we talk price, I want to be clear: No one should buy an Echo Dot at full price. Not because $50 or even $60 is a bad deal (it's not), but because you don't have to. Amazon sells Dots at a hefty discount so often, there's no reason not to wait that extra three weeks to get to Black Friday (or Prime Day or Christmas) to pick up a Dot for $25," says CNET's David Priest.
