Apple's Black Friday Sales Begin Around the World
Apple's Black Friday sales have begun around the world in their New Zealand store
and Australia stores
. The sales show modest discounts similar to previous years.
The only Macs that are on sale include the iMac and the MacBook. When translated to U.S. dollars, the discounts appear to be about $100 for mid-to-high end MacBooks and iMacs and about $50 for the entry level models.

Apple is also providing discounts on the iPod nano, iPod classic and iPod touch as well as discounts on a number of accessories.
