“Apple’s Friday prices, however, would still be higher than those currently posted by some authorized online resellers,” Keizer reports. “As first noted by Boy Genius Report, Apple’s ‘Black Friday’ specials will include the entry-level iMac and MacBook Pro models, both which will be priced at $1,098, an 8.4% reduction from the usual $1,199 price tag.”
“Apple will also discount the iPod Touch by approximately 10%, sell the Apple TV for 9% under list and promote Microsoft’s Office 2008 for Mac Home and Student with a $98 deal,” Keizer reports. “Although Apple has announced it will offer online-only deals on Friday, the company has not spelled out prices.”
“But several online sellers have already dropped the prices for some Macs — in some cases, below that of the reported Apple discounts,” Keizer reports. “MacMall, for instance, currently lists both the low-end 22.5-in. iMac and the 2.26GHz 13-in. MacBook Pro for $1,094.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. MacMall’s sale ends Tuesday just before midnight Pacific.”
