    Default More Black Friday Deals On Tap from Apple?



    Last week rumors began to surface about what Apple would do to slash prices on its products for Black Friday, the ultimate day of sales following Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday. While initially it seemed that Apple would merely be discounting products on a percentage basis, new information is emerging that suggests a different plan may be in store for prospective Apple customers this Friday.

    According to TFTS, here's what you might be able to expect.

    • iMacs: $1,098 to $1,898
    • MacBook Pro: $1,098 to $2,448
    • iPod nano: $138 to $168
    • iPod touch: $178 to $358
    • Apple TV: $208
    • Airport Express: $88
    • Apple Magic Mouse: $64
    • Apple Wireless Keyboard: $64
    • Western Digital Hard Drives: starting at $8
    • Sennheiser MM 400 Bluetooth Stereo Headset: $188
    • iHome iP88 Dual Dock Clock Radio Speaker: $108
    • mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone: $58
    • Griffin Power Reserve Chargers: $28 to $44
    • Power Support AirJacket for iPhone: $24 to $28
    • Microsoft Office Mac 2008 Home and Student Edition: $98
    • JBL Creature III Desktop Speakers: $74
    • Monster Beats by Dr. Dre: $128
    • Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic: $74
    • Nike + iPod: $14 to $24
    • Belkin TuneCast Auto: $48
    • Plantronics Discovery 975 Bluetooth Headset: $98



    Of course, if these prices prove to be accurate, it is likely that they will only be applicable to online shoppers willing and able to make their purchases this Friday - and this Friday only. As evidenced by Apple's advertisements hyping Black Friday, it appears a huge emphasis - much greater than normal - will be placed on online shopping.

    The offers presented above are pretty much all that we can expect from Apple this week. Apple hasnít confirmed the deals but its online store already shows a banner acknowledging the fact that this Friday special discounts are going to be offered for all the products available in the store.
    It isn't yet clear what the discount difference will prove (if there's any difference at all) between purchases made in store compared to those made online. And its unlikely that Apple will reveal many more details before Black Friday arrives. What is certain, however, is that 2009's Black Friday sales will probably offer bigger discounts than anything seen in 2008. Last year on Black Friday, as you may recall, Apple discounted $101 off the 2GHz unibody MacBook. They also took off $51 from the 20-inch iMac, $11 from the 8GB iPod Nano and $21 from 160GBApple TV.

    Nonetheless, the potential for major discounts is apparent this year. And in this tentative economy, that's something many holiday shoppers can give thanks for this season.

    Hes expressing the discounts from the top line price points, and the low end ones. He doesn't show how much they went down or up.

    These are all rumors first off. Second, if you are ever experienced an Apple black friday sale, you would know that the discounts are just usually about 11%...

    Hey, if those prices are accurate then one should be grateful to get things a little cheaper if you can stretch your dollar!

    Will never buy another one of those again..thing burnt out on me after 7 months, didn't get the extended care..apple wouldn't even look at it without an upfront fee said something about the warranty not being applicable or something of the sort which really set me off in the middle of their 5th avenue nyc store..I used it websurf on my couch..never installed anything but updates from apple. Wasn't a good result, afterwards opened it up and the board was friend..I know it wasn't a surge issue as I have protection on all my outlets (i'm a music producer)

    I have never had an issue with either of my Mac minis. I use one as a server and the other as a entertainment center.

    Apple will chew on everyone's money. Maybe the reason why those discounts are very weak.
    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
