Best Apple Studio Display Deals: Savings and Free Services Available – CNET

The Apple Studio Display is one of our favorite monitors right now, especially if you want a 5K display that offers Retina output from a Mac at the 27-inch display size. There aren’t all that many alternatives on the market for those who absolutely must have a Retina experience, but there’s no arguing that the Studio Display is a costly option. But don’t worry — we have found the best discounts available so that you don’t have to do the deal-hunting yourself.

The Studio Display monitor debuted back in March 2022 and hasn’t changed since, which means you’ll be getting the very latest model no matter which configuration you buy. It has a 27-inch 5K Retina screen, an A13 chip, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with Center Stage and a high-fidelity, six-speaker sound system.

Best Apple Studio Display deals

Besides Apple, there are a few retailers that have the Studio Display available for purchase. And while wait times were pretty long upon release, now retailers have some available for immediate purchase, with only a few models that are harder to track down. Some only have select configurations available, so check the retailer websites for what’s in stock as well as expected delivery dates. 

Amazon is one of the few retailers offering straightforward discounts on the Studio Display right now, though savings are only available on select configurations. Right now that boils down to saving $230 off the Nano-Texture glass model with the tilt- and height-adjustable stand.

It’s a small discount, but Adorama is offering savings on the nano-textured glass model of the Apple Studio display at the moment. You can pick it up with the tilt-adjustable stand for $1,865, which saves you $34.

Best Buy has nearly all configurations of the Apple Studio Display available to buy, but no direct discounts right now. You can snag three months of Apple Music and Apple TV Plus, if you’re new or returning to any of those services, as well as Norton 360. 

If you order your Studio Display directly from Apple, there aren’t any straightforward discounts for most people, but you can pay in installments with your Apple Card and enjoy 3% cash back. However, if you’re a student, Apple offers a $100 discount on all configurations at its education store. Additionally, most Apple stores offer same-day in-store pickup, as well as next-day delivery in certain areas.
