    • Is this a downgrade from previous year? I was hoping to get studio3 headset.

    • Hmm, interesting. Airpods instead of Beats

      So if you buy a $3000 Macbook or a $1000 iPad you get the same Airpods? Methinks they should offer Airpods Pro with an expensive Mac

    • Nice! I've been waiting for this and hoping it would be Airpods instead of Beats but was thinking there was a low chance it would be Airpods.

    • This is what I get for buying my Macbook Air right when it came out. Oh well!

      In my experience they are extremely strict about it. A relative bought the top of the line (at the time) 15" MacBook Pro for CAD$4000+ and there was no wiggle room on which promotional item you could get, even with escalation up the manager chain.

      Edit: I was wrong.

      I guess it depends how you look at it. If you are comparing MSRPs then sure its a downgrade but then the studio3's have been on sale for $199 so in this case it's not too much of a downgrade (unless the AirPods also get marked down heavily).

    • Well, last year I would have taken a macbook with a non garbage keyboard over the beats, so I feel like this is an absolute win. Thank goodness Taika Waititi put them on blast.

      It’s still a downgrade for Mac buyers imo. It definitely should have been AirPods Pros for said buyers

      Yeah apparently there is an option to upgrade to the pro but that might just be paying the difference in price.

    • Edu discount plus free Airpod 2's? Seems like a decent deal, I would flip the Airpods into an Apple Pencil 2.

      Should be pretty soon (I think it launched within a couple hours last year). I'm still hoping for a 10x the points haha but might buy an iPad now since Amex has 4% back.

    • Nice upgrade. Those Beats are so saturated it's hard to sell off. Airpods should be easier to pawn off for people who don't need it.

      I wonder how low AirPod prices will go.

      Probably higher than Beats since they've been running that for a few years now.

      By all accounts, AirPod sales seem to be huge and still growing, and with more price conscious people buying iPhone SE, they should sell easily on Kijiji.

    • Already have the AirPods 2, thanks to RBC. I was hoping for Beats :(

      Oh well, can't complain. Need to buy a new Mac anyway, this one's 7 years old.
