If you're reading this having not braved the absolute insanity that is waking up in the middle of the night to purchase a good you don't need, good on you - here's your reward: Apple Black Friday sales. The folks at Apple are keeping it all clean and tidy today with online sales - as well as retail store sales, but still - allowing you to purchase everything from the warmth and safety of your own home. It all begins with the iPad 4 (re-named "iPad with Retina display" here for the foreseeable future) and the iPad 2 - the iPad mini you'll have to purchase for full price, lucky you!
The iPad with Retina display you'll be able to pick up for a starting price of $458 USD - that's $41 USD under the price you'll have payed earlier this week and starting again on Saturday. The iPad 2 will cost you $368 USD, that being $31 under the standard price of $399. Both of the most recent iPod touch models - both the 4th generation and the newest iPhone 5-esque colorful 5th generation units are similarly discounted with $31 off the new model and $21 off the outgoing edition. The iPod nano (that being the newest model) is discounted by a fabulous $11 USD.
The MacBook Pro, the MacBook Pro with Retina display, and the MacBook Air have each been price-cut by $101 USD. The AirPort Express Base Station has been cut by $11 while the AirPort Extreme Base Station has been slashed by $21 USD. The Apple Time Capsule has been reduced by $21 USD. Each of the standard-sized Apple-made iPad covers and cases have been price cut between $11 and $21, while the Apple In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic as well as the new Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic have been discounted $11 USD and $7 USD.
Finally there's the Apple Magic Mouse, the Magic Trackpad, and the Apple Wireless Keyboard, each of them getting a price-cut of $11 USD. Each of these items will be discounted until 11:59 PM PST, after which they'll be bumped back up to standard pricing - good luck!
