Apple Watch Series 3, 42mm (GPS)

Apple Watch Series 3, 42mm (GPS)

From: John Lewis

Was: £309

Like the 38mm version, this is not quite as good a deal as John Lewis is suggesting because Apple has dropped the price of the entry-level 42mm Series 3 to £309. But it's still a decent price.

Apple 13in MacBook Pro, 2.3GHz dual-core, 128GB (2017) [KRCS]

Apple 13in MacBook Pro, 2.3GHz dual-core, 128GB (2017) [KRCS]

From: KRCS

Was: £1,249

Now: £1,174.06

This is the MacBook Pro's base model. It doesn't come with a Touch Bar and is the 2017 model (Apple only updated the Touch Bar models in 2018) but is still a good laptop choice. Right now there's a slightly better Amazon deal (see above) but that might run out, and if it does, this is a good alternative.

KitSound Hive X Bluetooth Speaker
