The new Apple Vision Pro 256GB model is $200 off at the Amazon-owned retailer Woot, dropping the price to $3,299 (was $3,499). While that’s a modest discount, it’s also the first price drop we’re aware of for Apple’s augmented reality headset–or “spatial computer,” as Apple markets it. The deal is also notable because the Apple Vision Pro isn’t sold by Amazon, and Woot deals tend to focus on products that were first available on Amazon.

Before you rush over to Woot to grab the Apple Vision Pro, there’s one caveat: the model for sale on Woot comes with the Solo Knit Band, Dual Loop Band, and Light Seal accessories in small sizes. This could limit its wearability, so be sure to check the sizing guides on Apple’s website to confirm everything will fit.

Apple Vision Pro

The Apple Vision Pro launched earlier this year to positive reviews. Most reviewers laud the device’s screen, 3D video capabilities, and spatial computing features while noting room for improvement in the headset’s overall design and broader appeal. This is definitely a product for enthusiast AR, VR, and Apple fans–but if that’s you, then this discount is a great way to grab the Vision Pro at a slightly more affordable price point.

That said, you’ll want to act fast if you want one. Woot’s Apple Vision Pro deal is limited to one per customer, and is available until April 23, unless it sells out beforehand. The offer is part of the retailer’s Prime Appreciation Days event, which includes a special Video Game Favorites sale featuring deals on new games like Princess Peach: Showtime! and hardware like consoles, pro controllers, and more.

If you’re interested in VR but don’t want to drop north of $3,000, Woot has the 128GB Meta Quest 2 on sale for $189 (was $250). Alternatively, you can buy the Quest 2 directly from Amazon for $199. The Quest 2 is the best entry-level VR headset on the market. It offers great performance at its price point, and it’s significantly cheaper than the other major VR gaming headsets. For reference, the Quest 3 starts at $499 and the PlayStation VR 2 starts at $549.
