Apple’s latest action movie sale is ready for the weekend

Apple is back with a fresh $5 movie sale as we head into the weekend focused on action titles. That’s alongside a new $1 rental sale (Reg. $5+), which is perfect timing for Friday and Saturday night movie sessions. Apple has a number of $5 titles this weekend featuring Sylvester Stallone, but there are a number of other movies on sale as well. You’d typically pay at least $10 for these movies at competing services and upwards of $20 in some instances. Check out all of our top picks right here.

12-inch MacBook returns at $900

Adorama has Apple’s 12-inch MacBook 1.2GHz/8GB/256GB for $900. That’s a $399 savings from the original price, down $200 or so from the regular 2019 going rate, and right at our previous refurbished mentions (although this model is new condition). Apple’s 12-inch MacBook features a Retina display, USB-C connectivity and more. This ultra-portable machine is perfect for working on-the-go or at home. Despite being recently discontinued, this model was a beloved Mac by many.
