We love our PCs, but there's just something about Macs that makes even PC afficionados lust after them. The main reason why not everyone in the world has more Macs is because they are more expensive than PC laptops. Luckily, this Black Friday, you'll find the best Apple deals not at the Apple store, but at Amazon's Apple Store, and you can shop from your computer!
The Apple deals available at the Apple store aren't that impressive. You'll get about 10% off on some items. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, then head on over the Amazon Apple Store, where they will surprise you with their deals.
Before you start shopping, a word of caution on potential MacBook Pro buyers: these products will receive an update to faster processors sometime early next year, in January most likely. This update is similar to the one that the iMacs received this fall, so if you want the most up do date MacBook Pro, best wait until then. Otherwise, check out the deals that we found for you!
1. Although you'd expect the Apple store to have a monopoly on Apple swag deals on this Black Friday, you won't find the new MacBook on sale there. However, you'll find it at the Amazon Apple store, with 15% off, at only $850, which is about 15% off the normal price
2. There's also the 17-inch MacBook Pro on sale for about $100 less than at the Apple store
, for about $2,300
. We have to say that this is the laptop that we really lust for. It's pretty light for a 17", only a pound heavier than some 13.3-inch laptops, and it's got double or triple their battery life. Apple claims between 7-8 hours, we've seen real word reports stating about 4-5 hours. That's still 2x or 3x what our laptops usually do!
3. The MacBook Air is also on sale, for $1,400
. Once again, that's $100 less than the Apple store.
4. The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro is also available for $50 less than at the Apple store, even though it is also on sale over there. It will cost you $1,050 at Amazon
. That's around 12% off the list price.
5. Through some resellers at Amazon, you can find the new 24-inch Apple LED Cinema Display for $850.
