Mac Sales Extend to "Cyber Monday" and VMWare Fusion 2.0 as Low as $10

Perhaps in an effort to extend the buying frenzy of Black Friday, the Monday following Black Friday has been (controversially) dubbed Cyber Monday. Many online retailers have decided to extend or start new sales on this day. While Apple is not participating in such activities, the big 3rd party Apple retailers have continued their Black Friday sales through Monday night. Our price comparison chart has been updated with the latest pricing from MacMall, MacConnection and Amazon which continue to have discounts as high at $300 on MacBook Pros.

VMWare also let us know that they are taking the opportunity to offer a substantial one day sale which discounts their Windows virtualization application VMWare Fusion from $79.99 down to $39.99 when you use the coupon code "CyberMondayDeal". Of note, this discount is combinable with VMWare's $30 competitive rebate for existing Parallels and Virtual PC customers. VMWare's Peter Kazanjy explains that this would bring the cost down to $10 for those switching:

So on Monday, anyone worldwide can pick up Fusion for 50% off (~$40), and Parallels and Virtual PC users in the US and Canada can switch for only $10.

Those interested in the competitive upgrade rebate should probably buy directly from VMWare (using Promo Code "CyberMondayDeal"). For those who are buying fresh, Amazon is another option as they are also offering VMWare Fusion 2.0 for $39.99 (and it's not clear if the competitive upgrade rebate is honored there).
