It can be difficult to find truly cheap MacBook Pro deals. These are premium laptops, and the jewel in Apple's lineup of luxury laptops. That means they don't tend to lose too much of their value, however recent price drops have shown us that MacBook Pro deals perhaps aren't as rare these days as they once were. MacBook Pro prices already start pretty high, which does give retailers plenty of scope for discounting during sales periods. However, demand is equally high for these machines - which means fewer cheap MacBook Pro deals during the rest of the year. That's not to say a discount isn't out there, though - in fact we've seen the latest M1 range of MacBook Pros pretty much constantly on sale since release. That's why we're bringing you all the latest cheap Macbook Pro deals from around the web right here. You want the best there is, but there's no reason to pay more than you should for it.

Earlier this week Sony quietly released very minor upgrades to its Sony A7R IV and Sony A7R III mirrorless cameras – these upgrades were so small, they caused a fair bit of confusion, particularly for anyone who's been thinking of buying one of the high-resolution Alpha cameras. If you missed the news, the updated Sony A7R IV (which has the same name, but a different ILCE-7RM4A model number) and Sony A7R III (called the ILCE-7RM3A) were revealed this week in Sony's YouTube video .

The raw numbers, as reported in a "Proposed Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law" document Apple filed last week , show massive incurred and projected losses for Epic's game download hub, which launched in late 2018 . Documents and testimony from Epic itself show a $181 million loss for the store in 2019 and projected losses of $273 million in 2020 and $139 million in 2021. You might think Epic is incurring those losses because it only takes a 12 percent cut of third-party game revenues , compared to the industry-standard 30 percent cut on other digital storefronts. On the contrary, though—in its own court filings , Epic … [Read more...] about How long can Epic afford to throw money at the Epic Games Store?
