If you’re in need of a speedy laptop that can handle some extensive creative workflows with long battery life, you’d be hard-pressed to find anything better than Apple’s latest crop of MacBook Pros. And with the base-model 14-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro processor now selling for $1,749 ($250 off) at Amazon, you won’t find a better deal than this right now. But if 512GB isn’t enough storage, the 1TB configuration is also on sale for its own all-time low of $2,199 ($300 off) at both Amazon and B&H Photo.

The 2023 14-inch MacBook Pro looks just like the redesigned model that came before it in 2021 — which is totally fine since that was an excellent return to form for Apple’s Pro laptops. It’s got the same MagSafe charger, three Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, HDMI port, Mini LED display, and SD card slot, but it also has a spec update with the M2 Pro processor at its heart. There’s no going wrong with one of these machines if you’re the creator type, especially on a nice sale.


The 2023 version of the 14-inch MacBook Pro comes with the new M2 Pro 10-core CPU and 16-core GPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD storage. It can also be configured with a higher-end M2 Max processor.

Full disclosure: I love me some gift card discounts because saving on a gift card for a digital storefront like the Nintendo eShop or Steam essentially gives you free rein to pick out your own deals — even on new games that are still full price. And right now, Eneba is offering a $100 PlayStation gift card for $84.99 ($15 off) after fees when you use code AUGUSTPSN100 at checkout until August 14th at 7AM ET. It’s an excellent opportunity to stock up on credit and save on a maximum-hype game like Baldur’s Gate 3 — which is set to launch on PlayStation 5 (with cross-save support) for $69.99 on September 6th. You’d even have around $30 leftover to put toward your PlayStation Plus subscription or for a smaller game like Viewfinder.


A gift card for Sony’s PlayStation Store is good for all kinds of titles, add-ons, and downloadable content. They are normally sold in $10, $25, $50, and $100 values. Now through 7AM ET / 4AM PT on August 14th, Eneba is selling a $100 digital gift card for $84.99 after fees when you use offer code AUGUSTPSN100.

The latest Humble Bundle is offering a bounty of 11 Resident Evil games on PC — ranging from classic to modern — for just $35 ($300 off, compared to buying them individually). Here’s everything you get in the Resident Evil Decades of Horror Village Edition game bundle:

That’s a whole lot of horror action, and it includes the newest entry in the franchise, Resident Evil Village. It also covers most of the series’ high points — sans this year’s Resident Evil 4 remake. This is a great opportunity to stock up on the whole series for an affordable price, and a portion of the money goes to charities and One Tree Planted.


A digital bundle of 11 titles from the iconic action-horror series, available until August 24th. It includes the HD remasters and remakes of the original Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil 4 (2005), Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil Revelations 2, Resident Evil Village, and a 25 percent off coupon for the Winters’ Expansion DLC for Village. All titles are redeemable on Steam and playable on Windows.

A few more Frideals to cook up:

  • The Western Digital WD_BLACK 2TB SN850X NVMe SSD is $99.99 ($100 off MSRP) at Amazon when you click the on-page coupon. Just another example of a quality, speedy SSD for building a high-end gaming PC dropping to low prices.
  • If you’re hyped enough for FromSoftware’s upcoming Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon, you can preorder it on PC and save $15. CDKeys is offering the Steam version for $44.99, with preorder cosmetic bonuses included. The game launches on August 25th after a 10-year gap in the mecha action franchise that goes back to the original PlayStation.
  • Sackboy: A Big Adventure is just $10 ($50 off) on either PS5 or PS4 at Best Buy for today only. The adorable single-player platforming spinoff from LittleBigPlanet is today’s offering of Best Buy’s rotating lineup of single-day $10 game deals.
  • A three-pack starter kit of Philips Hue bulbs with a wireless dimmer switch is $129.99 ($40 off) at Best Buy. These multicolor Hue bulbs are the 800-lumen version, which are not the brightest ones available, but they offer a fairly good value for getting started with smart lighting and onboarding to smart home tech in general.
