Apple is planning to get in on the Black Friday shopping frenzy by discounting several of its products on November 25th, 2011. We're not talking about huge savings that would classify anything as a steal, but you could pocket as much as $101 over the normal price, depending on which Apple product you're shopping for.

A tipster sent in an Apple Black Friday flyer to 9to5Mac.com, who dutifully posted it online. The deepest discount, as we just mentioned, is $101, and it applies to a number of iDevices, including the MacBook Air (marked down to $898), MacBook Pro ($1,098), and iMac ($1,098).


Discounted prices also apply to the iPad 2, iPod nano, and iPod touch, which will be marked down anywhere from $11 to $61. In addition, Apple also plans to temporary slash the price on a number of accessories, such as an $11 discount for an iPad 2 Smart Cover, $5 off an iTunes $50 gift card, $51.95 off a pair of Bowers & Wilkins C5 headphones, and several other sale prices.

Check them all out here.

So... If you ever wanted an iMac (not the highest performing ones) or an iPhone (not the largest ones) and wanted it at a slightly lower price; now would be the time to get one.

Don't be surprised if the prices are even better 2 weeks after black Friday. Apple's egg is most definitely cracking.

The ultrabook could be a driving factor behind those Macbook price cuts!

I guess that they will compete if they're forced to.

This is a good thing, mainly because my wife just asked me if she could transition to an iMac and a Macbook Pro.

The more the prices come down, the better it will be for me.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

People will still by Apple products regardless of price cuts, if someone wants Apple, they get Apple.

Unfortunately, Apple knows this, that's why they rarely ever offer discounts. Maybe this is another new direction they are taking? It really does seem like there is a new conscience working in the background. I mean they've been admitting mistakes, now lowering prices even if for a short time, what's next? Maybe they will start giving stuff away... Hahaha :p

What you people fail to realize is that these 'price cuts' have nothing to do with apple 'cracking'. You are simply getting the 'student discount' price. Nothing major for them given their overall income. Also, they have done this in the past, it's called clearance. Take a marketing course for once and think a little longer before type type typing away.
