Apple's Black Friday one-day sale has started to go live (AUS) in their international online Apple Stores. The U.S. sale should begin sometime tonight.

As reported, the discounts appear similar to last year, with expected discounts in the U.S. to be $41-$61 off iPad 2s and $101 off MacBook Pros, Airs, and iMacs.

As usual, App Store developers frequently use the holidays to hold sales on their apps. AppShopper tracks these sales for both iOS and Mac App Stores.

Our affiliate partner MacMall has already started their Black Friday sales with discounts across a range of Apple products and accessories. We'll be putting together a round up of all deals on Apple products. Please submit tips for any other good Apple-related deals that are spotted.

The Thanksgiving holiday is only celebrated in the US and it makes no sense to have sales related to it in other countries. It's just another example of US culture being shoved down the throats of the rest of the world.

You're whining because you get to buy discounted stuff for 1 day ? Am I getting this correctly ? :rolleyes:

Can someone explain why it's called Black Friday?? A black day has negative connotations - at least here in the UK - e.g. it was a black day when Steve Jobs got kicked out of Apple by Scully

Well, according to Wikipedia:

"The day's name originated in Philadelphia, where it originally was used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving.[4] Use of the term started before 1966 and began to see broader use outside Philadelphia around 1975. Later an alternative explanation began to be offered: that "Black Friday" indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or are "in the black"."

Hahaha... these savings are a joke. Other stores in Australia have the products cheaper than Apple with their Black Fridays specials.

Prices are almost the same every year. I'll be at bestbuy at midnight, they have some better deals.

Edit. Nevermind. Didn't read that this wasn't the US store. Lol

Wait a second, didn't Apple drop the price of the itouch to $199 back when the new white one came out? So technically they are only giving us $1 off.

This is Australian pricing in the image
