Apple’s Black Friday 2011 Discounts Are Leaked

Apple’s Black Friday 2011 Discounts Are Leaked

Apple famously keeps its Black Friday deals a closely guarded secret until the day of the event. But thanks to a leaked sales pamphlet from a “trusted tipster,” we already know where the Cupertino company will be slashing prices, with savings to be made on the iMac, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, iPod nano and iPod touch, iPad, and plenty of accessories.

The sale is very similar to those the company has held in previous years, and just what we predicted. Shoppers will save $101 on new Macs, including the iMac, the MacBook Air, and the MacBook Pro; $41-$61 on the iPad 2; $11 on both the 16GB and 32GB iPod nano, and $21-$41 on the iPod touch.

Apple has also thrown a ton of its own accessories into the sale, including $11 of the iPad 2’s Smart Cover; $11 off both the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad; $5 off a $50 App Store/iTunes/iBookstore gift card; and money off the Time Capsule and AirPort base stations.

A shed-load of third-party accessories are also reduced, including iPhone and iPod touch cases, iPad docks and mounts, the new Jawbone Up, headphones, and cases and sleeves.

If you’re buying Apple gadgets or accessories for loved ones this Christmas, there’s no better time to buy than this Friday!

  • Craig Steiger

    Leaked? I got an email from them of these deals 2 days ago….

  • Albert

    The savings are not impressive at all; they hardly motivate me to jump in and make a new purchase.

    I rarely pay attention to Apple during their “sales.” You rarely save more than $100. A large amount of money, but not when you may be spending $1500+.

  • JDWages

    Agreed.  This isn’t news at all.  Anyone who follows Apple’s Black Friday deals year by year knows this.  $100 off a high dollar item is more of a symbolic gesture than a genuine “I’m gonna save big money” type of discount.  It merely reinforces Apple’s long held policy of not giving any discounts at all.

    What we really need to keep our eyes on are the genuine discounts from third party sellers.  I myself am eyeing OWC, especially their Legacy SSDs for older Macs, which I have been quite disappointed with in terms of price.  While the SATA SSD prices have been falling at OWC, the Legacy drives (with IDE interfaces) are still priced into the stratosphere.

    So can you add an education discount to say an iMac for a $200 discount?

  • Jmagana88

    Relax people, anyone who has ever owned an Apple product know that they are worth every cent of their price. I got my first MacBook Pro in the Spring and while I knew I would have to live on nuts and berries for a few months, I also knew that my purchase was an investment for the far future. I don’t regret having bough an Apple MacBook Pro instead of a Windows-running PC. So if you do go into an Apple store thinking you’re going to save  money, just know that you will be buying a reliable product that will allow you to buy other things in the future that you otherwise wouldn’t buy if you bought a cheaper computer that will be soon outdated or break altogether. It is an investment.
