Apple Black Friday deals keep you out of harm's way

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!
