Macbook Price Slash

If you’re looking for a new laptop, now’s your chance: Apple just dropped the starting price on its 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display from $1,699 to $1,499 and its 13-inch MacBook Air (with 256GB of flash storage) from $1,499 to $1,399.

Half a Year of Streaming Music… For Free

The Rdio service got an A in EW back in January for its huge catalog and easy-to-use app and online interface. It is now offering new users up to six months of ad-free music for no charge (usage time will be metered). After that tryout period, you can decide whether you want to pony up $9.99 per month for unlimited ad-free Web and mobile streaming. (rdio.com)

Bargain Hunting on Google Play and iTunes

Stay on your toes! Both stores feature a regular rotation of deals, including free TV episodes and songs and discounted TV seasons and movies. This week, the Play store will be offering Kung Fu Panda for $4.99 and the Breaking Bad pilot for free. And iTunes’ free song of the week is now the pop duo Boy’s ”Little Numbers,” while singer-rapper Coco Jones’ track ”Déjà Vu” hits on March 12.

Amazon’s Got You Covered

Amazon just debuted March’s batch of e-books for $3.99 or less (like Joe Hill’s Heart-Shaped Box and Molly Ringwald’s novel, When It Happens to You). Since you’re going to be wearing out your Kindle with all that cheap reading, why not pick up a sharp new cover for it? Cases and sleeves by BUILT are on sale for 20 percent off if you use the promo code EWBUILT2 at checkout.
