Just like we were expecting, the Apple Black Friday 2011 deals have gone live, giving Mac-fans their opportunity to pick up iPads, iPod touches and nanos, as well as Mac computers and laptops at discounted rates.
Although Apple’s black friday deals are no where near the kind of door-busters that many holiday shoppers will willingly endure sleepless nights, winter weather, and even fights to obtain, they basically represent the company’s only real nod to discounting: the company is famous for keeping its product prices steady right up until the moment the products are discontinued.
Many of Apple’s price cuts end in $1. Below are list of Apple’s most popular offers for the 2011 Black Friday shopping event:
iPad (16GB, Wi-Fi): $458 ($41 off)iPad (32GB, Wi-Fi): $548 ($51 off)iPad (64GB, Wi-FI): $638 ($61 off)iPod touch 8GB: $178 ($21 off)iPod touch 32GB:$268 ($31 off)iPod touch 64GB: $358 ($41 off)iPod nano 8GB: $118 ($11 off)iPod nano 16GB: $138 ($11 off)MacBook Air: $898 to $1,498 ($101 off)MacBook Pro: $1,098 to $2,398 ($101 off)iMac: $1,098 to $1,898 ($101 off)
In addition to hardware, Apple is also running discounts on accessories like its Magic Trackpad, Time Capsule wireless base station and backup system, Mice, keyboards and iPad covers, as well as software such as Microsoft Office for Mac.
