Apple gear ranks high in Amazon Black Friday sales

Fortune on Apple & Amazon

Various Apple products dominated Amazon's bestsellers in electronics during Black Friday, Forbes reports. The morning of the sales event, the iPod touch was the top-selling item, though it was displaced to fourth place by Sunday. Three of the top 10 electronics items are said to have been Apple gear, however, and Kaufman analyst Shaw Wu notes that the lead times for Touches lengthened dramatically, shifting from one to two days to as much as five weeks.

In terms of computer rankings, the cheapest unibody MacBook (priced at $1,170) managed to obtain fourth place, underneath sub-$400 versions of ASUS' Eee PC and two Acer Aspire systems. No other MacBook reached the top 10, including even the sub-$1,000 plastic MacBook, which failed to break into the top 25. In 2007 the computer managed to rank first despite a higher cost; this year, Apple was still able to place five other MacBooks at various spots in the top 25 as of Sunday.

    Since Amazon has the cheaper price for Mac stuff, plus add in free shipping (?) and no sales tax, its how I buy all my Macs. Going to the Apple store (either online or in person) for instant 'satisfaction' isn't worth the extra cost.

    The only down side is no ability to customize (not that apple has many customization options).
