10% off is not impressive at all, but hey its the best apple has ever done =D

Apple feeling the pricing pressure from other vendors. Thats the only reason that can explain their 10% departure from price gouging.

I'd like to see Apple raise all their prices for Black Friday, just to see if people would still buy with reckless abandon. I bet it wouldn't slow sales that much.

Before a million threads get created about last years Black Friday specials from Apple, I thought it'd be best to bump this thread back into consciousness. That way, for the few that do slip thru, you can kindly point them to be first post in this thread. Thanks.
