The traditional Black Friday sales of Apple products are now in full swing at a number of third party retailers, and notably, Apple has started its own Black Friday deals in both US and International Apple Stores. The company is offering some significant discounts on its products including the Macbook Air, the MacBook Pro and the MacBook Pro with Retina Display all coming in at $101 knocked off the retail price. Other products to receive a discount include the fourth gen Retina Display iPad with a $41 discount, the iPad 2 with $31 discount and the iPod touch with $31 off.
That said, it’s recommended that you shop around as MacMall is offering slightly greater discounts with their own 60 hour Black Friday sale which sees the Retina Display MacBook Pro as being discounted by $151, the fourth generation iPad with a $45 discount and similar discounts to Apple on the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. The Mac mini is also discounted by $25.
Keep your eyes open on Cyber Monday when you’ll likely find a huge amount of personal electronics substantially discounted (although you likely won’t see any further reductions in Apple’s own pricing). Remember as well that, depending on who you buy from, you may have sales tax to pay (particularly with Apple who charge tax in each one of the States).
