Christmas Eve is almost here and retailers are launching new last-minute holiday deals by the minute. One of my favorite flash sales today comes courtesy of Best Buy. The retailer is one of my go-to stores for deals and this holiday season they're offering particularly great TV deals and Apple deals

For instance, right now they have MacBooks on sale from $749 and iPads on sale from $249. The MacBook discounts are especially noteworthy as they include Apple's entire lineup. I've looked through Best Buy's 24-hour flash sale and below I'm rounding up the retailer's top deals. All of these devices will ship in time for Christmas Eve, but I advise you don't waste too much time. 

It's also worth nothing that certain deals are cheaper if you're a paying My Best Buy members. (Members can save an extra $50 to $100 more on select devices). For more ways to save, check our roundup of all Best Buy coupon codes and our guide to last-minute gaming console deals.

Editor's Choice!
I bought the 15-inch MacBook Air for $1,049 during Black Friday. This deal beats that price by $50. The MacBook Air 15-inch M2 is arguably the best 15-inch laptop on the market for the money. It packs a gorgeous Liquid Retina display (2880 x 1864), Apple's M2 CPU w/ 8-core GPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, and a better six-speaker sound system than you'll find on the 13-inch model. In our MacBook Air M2 review, we called the Editor's Choice laptop an unbeatable combo of stellar performance, long-lasting battery life, and sleek design. Note: You can future-proof your laptop and get the 16GB RAM model for $1,449.

TV sale: deals from $64 @ Best Buy
Best Buy has smart TVs on sale for as low as $64. Keep in mind, the cheap TVs tend to be smaller, 1080p models (which are more suitable for a children's room or guest room). However, the sale also includes larger sets. These are among the cheapest TVs we've seen from Best Buy. By comparison, Amazon is offering a similar sale with prices from $64.
