Apple's Black Friday Sale: $101 off some MacBooks and iMacs

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Apple on Friday morning kicked off its 24-hour Black Friday shopping event with deals largely reminiscent of those from last year. Highlights include up to $101 off some MacBook and iMac models, and $21 off Apple TV, Time Capsule, and iPod touch.

DealNN offers a rundown of the 2008 Apple Black Friday Sale, in which the Mac maker is offering $101 discounts on its latest generation "unibody" MacBooks and a $51 discount on the entry-level $999 white MacBook. Similarly, the company has cut between $51 and $101 off its line of aluminum iMac desktops.

iPod discounts include $11 off 8GB iPod nanos, $21 off iPod classics, and $21 off iPod touches. The same $21 discount can be found on Apple TV and the 500GB Time Capsule.

Other minor but notable Apple product deals include $11 off AirPort Express, $11 off the Apple iPhone Bluetooth headset, $5 off the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, and $5 off the iPhone 3G Dock.

In the third-party creative department, shoppers can find $32 off M-Audio's KeyStudio 49, $202 off Sanyo's Xacti VPC-E2 Waterproof Digital Camcorder, and $102 off the Canon Rebel XS Kit.

For headphones Apple is offering $52 off Monster Beats by Dr. Dre Headphone and $16 off each of the following: Sennheiser PMX 80 Sport II Headphones, Sennheiser MX 85 Sport II Earphones, and Sennheiser OMX 80 Sport II Earphones.



There's also some minor discounts on games, speaker systems and hands free kits.

Indeed, and you don't need Black Friday. It' amazing that more folks don't realize this.

Paltry and pathetic. An insult to consumer intelligence. I rather see AAPL offer no discount instead of a "fool's discount."

Wonder if the Apple Store is price-matching the (better) BF deals from places like MacMall, Amazon, etc.

Then don't take advantage of it, wait until tomorrow to buy without the discount. That'll teach em!

AFAIK, the Apple Store(s) will price match, if you have proof of the ad. If it's an online ad then it's easy enough to pull up once you're in the Apple Store. The only issue will be if Apple cannot verify the ad price that you want them to match.

Or buy off of Amazon or one of the other online retailers *whenever*, and probably beat the Apple Store BF prices anyway.
Not to mention dodging the sales tax on top of that.

Don't be so quick to dismiss the blind stupidity and greed of the American consumer. Just ask the family of the poor Wal-Mart worker trampled to death in New York state. For what? To save a few dollars? Bunch of lunatics.
