MacMall Kicks off Black Friday 2012 Sale on Macs, iPods and iPads

60HourBlackFriday
Online retailer MacMall has kicked off their 60 hour Black Friday sale just now. The sale runs until midnight on Friday. Traditionally, 3rd party retailers have offered better discounts than Apple once sales tax is taken into account. MacRumors is an affiliate partner of MacMall.

Their full sale list covers both new and previous generation products. We've pulled out the current-generation products of interest and their respective discounts:

Current Model Retail MacMall
16GB iPad 4 (Wi-Fi) $499 -$25
32GB iPad 4 (Wi-Fi) $599 -$41

Discounts on the MacBook Airs are notable for a percentage of their total price, while the 15" Retina MacBook Pros have the largest dollar amount in savings.

When looking for the cheapest price, it's good to know which retailers charge sales tax automatically. MacMall charges sales tax in California, Illinois, New York, Tennessee, Minnesota, Georgia, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

We expect to see additional Black Friday sales at Apple's online store though that doesn't kick in until Black Friday itself. We will also cover other sales and discounts. Please send in any notable Apple-related sales.

Old iMac model :/

You cannot possibly expect Apple to release a new version of a product and then immediately discount it on Black Friday.

I am running an '08 entry spec Macbook with integrated graphics and I am trying to run finite element analysis, numerical analysis, CAD and Final Cut on it. Watching paint dry is comparatively interesting. Come on Apple! I NEEED this!!

What field of work are you in ?

Generally, people that use those programs don't need all of them.

AutoCAD and final cut ?

Sounds like you must be pretty smart yet you made an awful choice for a work machine a few years ago.
