Apple Black Friday Deals Are Probably the Same as Last Year

Apple Black Friday sale for 2012

Black Friday is approaching and that means Apple will be offering some decent deals with rare discounts across their product lines. There’s a high likelihood that Apple’s sales this year will be exactly the same as they were last year (and the year before, for that matter), with the following discounts on popular items:

  • iPad – $41-$61 off
  • iPad Mini – $31 off?*
  • iPod Touch – $21 to $41 off
  • iPod Nano – $11 off
  • MacBook Air – $101 off
  • MacBook Pro – $101 off
  • iMac – $101 off

* One big question on everyones mind is if Apple will discount the iPad Mini, and by how much. Because it’s priced similarly to the iPod touch, it will likely receive similar discounts, and there’s a chance it will temporarily dip to the $299 price tag we all wish it had to begin with. This is purely speculation, so don’t be surprised if the Mini ends up with a smaller discount.

Because Apple hardware is rarely discounted, Black Friday represents an excellent time to buy a new iPad, iPod, or Mac, whether it’s for yourself or as a very generous gift to someone else. On the other hand, you’ll often find bigger discounts from some other retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and even Target or Walmart, so as usual it pays to shop around for the best deals.

Heads up to MacRumors for first noticing the teaser at Apple AUS.
