Here Are Apple’s Black Friday Deals

apple black friday 2012

If you’re looking for a new iPad, iPod or MacBook this holiday season you’re gonna want to listen up, as Apple just revealed their Black Friday deals. As expected there aren’t any major “doorbuster” deals to be found here, but there still are some solid discounts.

The iPad 4 has been given a $41 discount and now starts at $458 for the 16 GB WiFi model (with $51 and $61 discounts for the 32 GB and 64 GB WiFi only versions). The iPad 2 16 GB WiFi model got a $31 discount to $368, though if you want one of these we’d still recommend going with Walmart or Target’s deals instead. The new 5th generation iPod Touch (the one with the color back and 4 inch screen) has also been given a $31 discount and now starts at $268 for the 32 GB version. The older iPod Touch and new iPod Nano were each given their own small discounts, bringing their prices to $178 and $111 respectively.

The MacBook line is where the big discounts happen. Apple has taken $101 off of each of their MacBook lines– the MacBook Air, Pro and Pro with Retina Display. Of course this brings them to the same prices you could get the rest of the year if you use a student discount, with the exception being the base 11 inch MacBook Air which is now $898 (it’s usually $950 with a student discount).

Apple also dropped the prices on their iPad Smart Covers and Smart Cases, as well as for their headphones , routers and wireless mice and keyboards. And no, unfortunately there doesn’t look to be any deals for the iPad Mini or iPhone 5.

Best Buy's Exclusive HP Laptop

If you were thinking about getting the new MacBook for the holidays you might want to hold up on that purchase. Best Buy and HP teamed up to make a 13.3″ inch laptop that could change your mind.

Meet the HP Pavilion dv3510nr:

  • Standard with 4 GB of RAM + Expandable to 8 GB– the MacBook comes standard with only 2 GB. That means faster and more efficient; with the 8 GB we’re talking faster-than-Jose-Reyes computer speed 😉 .
  • 320GB hard drive— for all your music. If you want to get that on your Mac, you’ll have to pay an extra $200.
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Backlit keyboard
  • Webcam– talk to all your friends on Skype.
  • Three USB ports
  • Just under 5 pounds–a weight you’ll be very grateful for when lugging it from class to class. Although the MacBook is a little lighter, it isn’t significant enough for you to feel the difference.
  • 2 Year Warranty– good if you are a litte klutzy : ); the MacBook’s warranty is a measly 1 year.

The best part? The HP Pavilion dv3510nr is available for $1,099 vs. the MacBook’s $1,299, which means more money in your wallet.

So, are you going to go for the expensive MacBook or maybe consider the cheaper HP Pavillion? You can get the HP Pavilion dv3510nr at Best Buy.
