While cyber week sales on Apple products have wound down from the steep discount levels seen this time last week, a new batch Ivy-Bridge MacBook Airs and MacBook Pro Retinas are in the process of being restocked at one of the company's largest resellers and are being offered to AppleInsider readers at the lowest prices anywhere.
Black Friday 2013
Among Cyber Monday's most popular Apple deals are $200 off the company's current 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina, $200 off Apple's MacBook Pro with DVD/CD, up to $60 off iPads, a free $40 Amazon gift card with the purchase of a Nest learning thermostat, free $50 gift card from Best Buy, and more.
With Apple's online store only offering Gift Card incentives on Macs this Black Friday and power-sellers like Best Buy and Amazon running out of the most popular models days ago, the lowest prices on Macs that are actually in stock for shipping continue to come from a handful of the company's independent resellers. Our real-time price guides make it easy to find the Mac you want at the lowest possible price.
With Apple deciding not to discount iPads for its own Black Friday sale this year, shoppers can turn to the company's online retail partners, which offer a wide variety of savings and promotions on assorted current and previous generation models, though inventory of the most popular models remains hard to come by.
This Black Friday, B&H Photo Video — an Apple Authorized Reseller and one of the largest electronics superstores worldwide — is offering $102-$550 off standalone Macs, up to $615 off those same Macs when bundled with 3-Years of AppleCare, and dozens of unbeatable camera deals — all of which are tax-free outside New York.
For its Black Friday deals in the U.S. and Canada, Apple will be handing out Apple Store gift cards instead of discounts on qualifying purchases, which include everything from Macs and iPads to accessories.
Big-box electronics retailer Best Buy kicked-off its 2013 Black Friday sale Thursday evening with dozens of doorbusters, including $150-$200 off MacBook Airs, iMacs, and 13-inch MacBook Pros, as well as a 65-inch Samsung HDTV offered for $999.
Authorized Apple resellers begun unveiling their Black Friday deals on Wednesday, with discounts of roughly $101 off Macs and as much as $70 off new iPad Air models— but none on Retina iPad minis — potentially hinting at the kinds of discounts Apple will or will not provide at its own stores. Meanwhile, more AppleInsider exclusives and a $699.99 MacBook Air doorbuster are also up for grabs.
