The Best Buy Presidents’ Day sale (opens in new tab) is now on — bringing seriously good deals to the table across laptops, tablets, gaming, Apple devices, headphones and so much more.

Of course, they’re not the only retailer jumping on the bandwagon. You can see what everyone else is up to on our Best Presidents’ Day sales hub but stick around, as we’ve got some seriously good price drops to share with you.

As part of the sale, you can get up to $200 off the entire MacBook Pro lineup (opens in new tab). While we are obviously going to highlight the M1 darling of the range ($100 off the M1 MacBook Pro (opens in new tab) with 512GB SSD), it is worth mentioning the 16-inch beast with $250 off (opens in new tab) for those who need a discrete GPU in their workload.

For gamers looking for a beasty laptop, you have not been forgotten, as Best Buy is offering deep discounts in the gaming laptop category. Our two favorites are the Asus Zephyrus G14 (opens in new tab) with Ryzen 7, GTX 1650 power, 8GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD for just $849.99, and the Dell G5 (opens in new tab) with the same price and similar specs except for the use of a Radeon RX 5600M GPU instead.

And as for console players, there is a huge sale across loads of games (opens in new tab) on all the big systems. Our best picks include $10 off Super Mario Odyssey (opens in new tab), Zelda: Breath of The Wild (opens in new tab), Animal Crossing: New Horizons (opens in new tab) and Mario Kart 8 (opens in new tab) on the Switch, a huge $30 off The Last of Us Part 2 (opens in new tab) on PS4, and $20 off Yakuza: Like a Dragon (opens in new tab) on Xbox Series X/S.

Finally, the latest crop of Samsung Galaxy S21 phones (opens in new tab) may have only just come out, but they are already being deeply discounted. You can get $250 off the Galaxy S21 Ultra (opens in new tab) — that’s crazy given the phone released under a month ago!

Given big discounts like this, you can expect the stock to go quick, so act fast and make the most of these big savings.
