Black Friday, which is a major shopping day in the United States and several other countries, marks the kickoff of the holiday shopping season. On Black Friday, retailers often offer significant discounts on popular products to lure customers into their stores.

Apple's international online and retail stores also participate in these sales, though Apple's discounts tend to be very modest. Last year's discounts for Apple's core products were as follows (in USD):

- iPad with Retina Display - $41 Off
- iPad 2 - $31 Off
- iPod touch - $ 31 Off
- iPod touch 4th Generation - $21 Off
- iPod nano - $11 Off
- MacBook Pro with Retina - $101 Off
- MacBook Pro - $101 Off
- MacBook Air - $101 Off

For absolute savings, customers will have better luck with third- party merchants that tend to offer steeper discounts on Apple products on Black Friday. We have also gathered all of the best deals on Apple products and accessories into a comprehensive roundup.

Apple, you have to learn how to do holiday sales from the retail giants like Walmart or BestBuy.

Stop these lowball offers... it really looks cheap!


Erm, why? They don't *need* to offer any offers. iPad is selling well, so are the MacBooks. Why do they need to offer 'huge' discounts.

Black Friday is a retailer event. Apple is primarily a manufacturer.

Where's the rule that - because American's came up with 'Black Friday' - somehow everyone has to suddenly offer deep discounts? Surreal.

Seems like Apple should take a hint from Target and Walmart. Why not offer Apple gift cards? That way it would look like they're offering a $200 discount, when really they're just having you shop more.

Then why are they?


Apple is participating in Black Friday - but just marginally. It's so Apple can SAY that they participated, but without actually undermining their high-priced brand.

This is a HUGE deal to consumers. If a consumer can get something at a really cheap price - why buy during the rest of the year? Name some other 'high-priced brand' that is offering deep discounts? There are none.

Also, if you notice, Best Buy will offer a 60" TV for like $500, but it's only for the first 2 people in line. Everyone else pays full price. Apple, on the other hand, is giving the small discount to EVERYONE, not just the first 2 in line.

Right. Because when I think of Walmart, I think "classy". And when I think of Apple, I think "cheap."

Does apple offer its retail staff a proper living wage?


Who cares? I am a computer buyer, not a liberal worried about what other people earn....
