Buyer's Guide: Mac Sales Begin Ahead of Black Friday

The holiday season has become more relevant for those looking for a discount on Apple computers as there has been an increasing number of vendors willing to hold short term sales/rebates on Macs over the past few years.

Due to a variety of circumstances, this year's holiday season is likely to be particularly strong for Mac sales. Apple has recently revised the iMac, Mac mini, and MacBook, while the MacBook Pro revisions are only 5 months old -- and without an Apple attended Macworld looming in January, there is a low likelihood of any imminent updates to most of the Mac product line.

MacMall is kicking off early with a weekend sale that incorporate instant discounts as well as mail-in rebates across Apple's current lineup. This particular sale ends on Sunday at 11:59pm Pacific Time, and the Mac line-up is organized in this table. As an affiliate partner, sales through these links benefit this site directly.

Apple, themselves, will likely also hold a Black Friday sale both online and at their retail stores, though their discounts have always been very modest. Like last year, we'll organize the most interesting sales for a Black Friday summary.
