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.
