Best Buy kicked off an early August Apple sale just in time for back to school shopping. Highlights include:

Beats: All Beats Solo 2 Wireless headphones are $179 at Best Buy. While the MSRP is $299, retailers like Amazon usually sell the same set for $199.

iPad Mini 2: It's the entry level iPad, but the Mini 2 is worth looking at when it's on sale. The Wi-Fi version is $40 off at $229 for 16GB and $279 for 32GB. AT&T cellular models are $100 off and Verizon models are $200 off.

MacBook: A higher-end config of the 2015 12-inch MacBook is $350 off at $1,249 with 512GB and 8GB of RAM. Note there's a new version for 2016 with better performance and battery life.

iMac: The 27-inch Retina 5K display iMac is $1,899 (regularly $1,999) with 1TB or storage and a Core i5 processor.
