The whole internet seems to be raving about “Black Friday” sales today – the traditional way American retailers encourage their punters to buy TVs and DVD players and the like during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Generous old Apple, ever the global distributor of love, has brought a bit of this discount mayhem to the UK today, offering a one-day-only collection of discounts to stuff bought via the Apple Store. You could, for example, get £5 off an iPod Nano, save £31 off the price of a 20″ iMac, get a very decent £60 off the usual £949 RRP of the 13″ MacBook or save £11 when getting yourself an 8GB iPod Touch.
The more aspirational end of the Apple spectrum hasn’t been discounted, mind – iPhone 3Gs, MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs aren’t part of the bargain range, so don’t too excited. Go see what you can find.
