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.

Discounts on the MacBook Airs are most notable for a percentage of their total price. Also notable are the $150 discounts for 15" Retina MacBook Pros. MacMall also offers steeper discounts for previous generation machines.

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

MacMall also runs physical retail stores in Illinois (Chicago) and California (Santa Monica, Torrance, Huntington Beach) and are offering in-store deals at those locations.

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.
