With these deals they might as well keep the stores closed and let employees sleep of their Thanksgiving dinner.

What are the odds Apple will put discounts on the new MacBook Pros for Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

Zero.

Apple doesn't discount popular products on Black Friday.

They'll discount other products, like headphones, at minimal 5% off deals.

Apple doesn't need to discount, they will sell their products WITHOUT discounting. Not discounting actually allows Apple to keep the perceived value of their products high, which helps them maintain their high profit margins.

If other retailers and manufacturers could do the same, and NOT discount on Black Friday, no doubt they would. Apple is making a smart business decision.

Color me unimpressed. Target's Black Friday prices on Apple and Beats products are better across the board.

I got my air 2 at Black Friday 2014. I think I only paid $100 more than it would cost with this sale, 2 years later.

Looking at this list, I can safely say (for the third year in a row), that the only discount I'll be taking advantage of is the itunes gift card discount.
