Apple plans 'Black Friday' sales special

Apple 'Black Friday' event

Apple has announced a special sales event planned for this Friday, November 23rd. Marketed under the slogan "Ready. Set. Shop," the event's splash page at the online Apple Store encourages visitors to return the day after Thanksgiving, when they may find a number of products discounted, such as Macs and iPods. The site will also be offering free shipping, though shoppers will be able to skip that step by visiting a retail store, where similar sales will be in effect. Extended hours will be in place as well, though these will vary from location to location.

Goods likely to be discounted are those featured in Apple's Holiday Gift Guide, which was recently published online. Aside from flagship products previously mentioned, the guide promotes a host of items such as games and iPod accessories. During 2006's sale, Apple dropped the prices of some products by as little as $6 (for a Sony cassette adapter) or as much as $101 (iMacs and MacBooks).

    sorry Apple

    Unless you plan to release new Mac Pros or a redesigned Mac mini between now and Black Friday, I'm not buying your outdated inventory you're trying to get rid of.

    Actually, it should be more like "If you're not slashing prices by several hundred dollars on everything, like other retailers are, its just not worth the effort."

    I mean, come on, who wants to wade through a huge crowd at the mall to wade through the stupidly designed Apple stores ("OK, I got my item, now, how the h*** does one check out?") to save $50 on a macbook?

    Black Friday - Save onlin

    All of the sale prices are also available at the Apple online store. So if you can save $25 on an iPod Classic or $100 on a MacBook while shopping from home, there's no downside. Apple upgraded the MacBook two weeks ago. I am going to buy one online this Friday. I decided to wait and save $100.

    You're a real piece of work. And I don't mean that in a kind way.

    Repeat after me: Apple are not gods, they are just a business.

    The biggest problem...

    Black Friday is when companies blow junk out their doors for a low sticker price.

    Best Buy has an HP (Celeron) laptop with printer package for $299 and an emaching for $199. Sure it's a good price but the product is c***. Apple doesn't make c*** so don't expect a $300 computer!

    Testudo, what do you need to make you happy, 12 exits with registers at each? Give me a break. Tell me what retail store does satisfy your needs—or anything else for that matter!

    It would be nice if Apple would take $100 off some iPods and accessories. Blow something out the door Apple! Who knows—keep an eye on it and see what happens.
