Apple Kicks Off Black Friday Sale
If you’re looking to buy a shiny new gadget with a fruit-shaped logo today, Apple has joined the Black Friday deal bonanza with several offers. On this international sale day, you can save some money on an iPad, iPod Touch, MacBook, and iMac or accessories. The deals are both online and in Apple retail stores everywhere.
Apple’s 2011 Black Friday deals are in line with previous offerings, which means they are not the biggest deals you will find around for these products (you might have more luck with third-party retailers). Nevertheless, you can save $41 on an entry-level iPad, now starting at $458, or up to $61, depending on the capacity and model you choose.
The iPod Touch line has discounts ranging from $21 for the 8GB model (now $178) up to $41 for the 64GB capacity model, now $358. The iPod Nano starts at $118 after an $11 discount for the 8GB variety. The $11 discount applies for the 16GB iPod Nano models too.
