Dealhacker: Apple Black Friday Sale

As we noted earlier this week, Apple’s Australian online store is following its US parent and holding a one-day ‘Black Friday’ sale. The standout deal? iPad models starting from $534 for the 16Gb Wi-Fi model, which is cheaper than anyone else out there right now.

Not all the bargains are equally worthwhile. $50 iTunes cards are selling for $45 — a paltry 10 per cent discount which is much lower than the specials regularly seen at other stores. Right now, for instance, you can get better gift card discounts at Kmart, 7-Eleven, Myer, The Good Guys and Harvey Norman.

Similarly, while $121 has been sliced off the price of various Mac models, that’s not much different to the 10 per cent off sales regularly seen through chain stores. Hit the link for the full (and long) list of specials.
