All of today’s best deals are headlined by Apple’s latest 13-inch M1 MacBook Air at $111 off, Nomad’s 25% off spring sale, and this Lutron Caseta HomeKit starter set at $80. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Save up to $111 on Apple’s latest 13-inch M1 MacBook Air

Authorized Apple retailer Expercom is currently offering the latest 13-inch M1 MacBook Air from $948 for the entry-level model. Down from it $999 going rate, today’s offer amounts to $51 in savings, is $1 under our previous mention, and one of the best prices of the year. You can also save up to $111 on higher-end configurations with upgraded RAM and storage space. 

Yesterday saw the launch of the first M1-powered iMac, but those wanting to work away from the desktop will find Apple’s latest MacBook Air to fit the bill instead. Centered around a 13-inch Retina display, you’ll find improved performance thanks to the M1 chip, as well as increased battery life and a fan-less build. That’s alongside up to 16GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD storage, as well as a pair of Thunderbolt ports and Wi-Fi 6 support to round out the package.

Nomad’s 25% off spring sale discounts iPhone gear

Nomad is now launching a new sitewide spring sale today that’s taking 25% off its entire collection of iPhone 12 cases, Apple Watch bands, and other leather accessories. Amongst all of the offers, our top pick is the Leather Rugged Folio iPhone 12 MagSafe Case for $60. Down from its usual $80 going rate, today’s offer amounts to $20 in savings and marks the very first discount we’ve seen.
