Apple's 2011 Black Friday Discounts for iPad 2, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac and More


9to5Mac reveals the prices for Apple's 2011 Black Friday sales. The discounts are in line with last year's prices, with only modest discounts on the company's products. Price drops for Apple's core products are as follows:

iPad 2 - $41 to $61 Off
iPod nano - $11 off
iPod Touch - $21 to $41 off
MacBook Air - $101 off
MacBook Pro - $101 off
iMac - $101 off

Meanwhile, 3rd party accessories are also seeing some small discounts ranging from $11-$101.95 in savings for accessories such as iPad Smart Covers, iPhone battery packs and external hard drives.

These prices should be available for both online and local retail Apple store locations. For those who were planning to purchase from Apple retail anyway, it makes sense to wait until Friday. Customers eligible for Apple's educational pricing on Macs may also want to compare prices, as some models have better standard educational pricing while others have better Black Friday pricing.

For those looking for more savings, other online retailers frequently have their own Black Friday sales on Apple products as well. Depending on your location, those other online retailers may provide the added advantage of not charging sales tax on online orders. Apple's online store does charge local sales tax on all orders when applicable.

But you can't get this on top of the student discount right? It's either one or the other.


Correct.

Yeah I'm not sure why this is becoming such a big news story around the web. This is about normal for Apple Products. For the most part, bottom line is, Apple doesn't give discounts.

"modest" discounts? Please. 8%-10% is a "weak" discount. Discounts that mean anything to a USA consumer, especially on Black Friday or during the Holiday season, BEGIN at 20%...especially electronics.

I'm sure there will be flame replies stating Apple doesn't have to do discounts, blah blah blah...and you're right...nobody has to do anything in this world.

And computer will still fly off the shelves with these meager discounts.

Hopefully Amazon or somewhere tax-free matches the Airport Extreme price... I've been holding out for a deal.

Lame. With all their incredible profit margins and cash reserves, this is their incredible sale? For heavens sake, Best Try is selling the 13" 256GB MBA for 200.00 off.


The purpose of the cash reserves is not to sell to you below cost.
