$1799 ($500 off) for Excellent MacBook Pro 15", Recommended Peripherals for Storage, Backup
Excellent laptop deal (faster than the late 2013 MBP Retina that I use): $1799 Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro Retina (Mid 2014) 2.5 GHz / 16GB / 512GB $500 off. If you want the very best and are willing to spend another $1100, get the 2015 MacBook Pro Retina 2.8 GHz / 16GB / 1TB).
Recommended with it:
- The diminutive OWC Envoy Pro EX 480GB or 1TB (see review of the OWC Envoy Pro EX). Excellent for backup at home or on the road.
- OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock for expanding ports (see review of the OWC Thunderbolt 2 Dock).
- OWC Thunderbay 4 or Thunderbay 4 Mini and/or OWC Mercury Elite Pro drives for storage and backup.
Outstanding camera deals
Some deals I hand-picked today, with free overnight shipping:
- $699 Fujifilm X-Pro1 with 27mm lens + extras after $550 instant savings. $799 with the 18-55mm lens
- $598 Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 with 14-42mm Lens after $200 instant savings PLUS $150 B&H gift card = $448 effective price
- $696 Sony Alpha a6000 with 16-50mm and 55-210mm Lenses after $350 instant savings
- There is $100 instant savings on the Sony LHP-1 lens hood for the Sony RX1/RX1R/RX1R II, which is 56% off. Highly recommended, since the front element has little to protect it otherwise (and I prefer to avoid filters most of the time).
Look for more deals by discount or brand or category, such as Apple deals, Zeiss deals, Sony deals, Nikon deals, Canon deals, Sigma deals.
