I was hoping for an iPad mini under 300 USD. Really didn't expect no discount at all.

Wooooow!


As always Appleīs Black Friday sale is more of a joke than anything else.
THey havenīt even made a tiny discount on the ipad mini or the latest iPad. I donīt even see why they bother to spend time changing their website for this.

These moneybags are so tight-fisted. Better than no discount I guess.

no. it doesn't. Apple just calls it a special shopping day to be broadly applicable.

Are there any Black Friday discounts for students over the usual discounts available from the educational store?

Speaking of that, what happens if you buy a Black Friday discount item with a student or corporate discount?

People see "Black Friday" and assume it's a good discount, flocking to stores. I went to a store during some discount, might have been for Christmas but I don't remember, and it was PACKED with people, probably past the maximum occupancy. I've never seen so many people in such a little space except in an elevator.

The discounts were puny, like $10 off on a $600+ item or something.

No Mac Mini because of the pending recall to fix the HDMI output problem?

This is gonna be a huge embarassment for Apple once it goes mainstream.

HURRY UP AND FIX THE MAC MINI!!!!.....I want one.

No Black Friday doesn't exist as we don't celebrate your thanksgiving.
However for the past two, maybe three years, we have been included in the Friday sales at sites where many Australians purchase items on line like amazon. And now apple.
Also hilariously, we had our own home made version of a one day Internet sale earlier this week called "click frenzy". This is now referred to in Australia as "click fail". It was a disaster, on many levels.

I shouldn't be surprised. Apple has never given a flying Frack about discounting their products.

But being on the fence about buying into the iPad world, a $41 discount isn't going to be enough to push me over the edge. 458 isntead of 499 isn't a significant enough discount for a 1 day sale to warrant getting up early, or rushing to the store.

$100 off and you've probably got me hooked. 150+ and i'll line up.
less than 10% is nothing more than "market fluctuation" to me

Erm, as the demand is currently outstripping the supply (online, at least), so why would they need to offer a discount? Most retailers/resellers haven't even got their Mini's yet.

Apple will price match, and $498 is the same price for the new iPad as BigW sell it. But it will be good for those who don't know about price matching or don't ask for it. I got my new iPad a couple of weeks ago for $498 after asking for a BigW price match.

No Mac Mini or iMac means I'm out, a big enough discount and I might have got the Mini. They don't even have the iPad Mini on the list, so nothing interests me right now
