Apple had decreased Mac prices up to 10% in a repeat of the last two years’ stingy “Black Friday” deals, which authorized resellers again trumped. This is the second year Apple also sold the iPad at a discount.
Apple’s one-day sale has decreased most Mac prices by $101, a 10% cut on the entry-level 11-in. Now MacBook Air is sold with the suggested price of $898 on Friday. The across-the-board $101 translated into discounts of 6%-8% for 13-in. MacBook Airs, 4%-8% for MacBook Pros and 5%-8% for iMacs.
The Mac Mini and the Mac Pro were not included in the deals.
Apple’s Mac discount was similar to those of the last two years’ Black Friday sales. However, the difference is that Apple did not eliminate its lowest-priced notebooks this year’s.
The iPad 2 was deceased between $41 and $61 based on each handset, a discount of between 8% and 9% for the priciest iPads, slightly more than in 2010. Apple also cut the price of the iPod Touch between $21 and $41, and reduces prices for the iPod Nano by $11. For instance, Amazon.com has listed the least-expensive 11-in MacBook Air at $849.99 and the entry-level 21.5-in. iMac for $1,049.99.
