This year was quite the disappointment. Would have been smart to create buzz by discounting the iPhone / iPod Touch for at least Black Friday.

I took advantage of 100 off the price of the base MacBook last year. Not as good of a deal this year . Looks like I am going to an other store this year .

Taking little over $50 off the price hardly sounds worth it to me :( . At least last years discount was higher than the sales tax my state charges, this year not so much .

Yeap. Not much of a special sale to me. Anyway, I will swing by to the local Apple Store at 8am as I have to see the Mac Genius.

Apple is raking in money hand over fist.

You'd think they could throw us a bone with some meat on it.

:D

All these sales are on the wrong day!

Yes sales are nice, but why have them all on Buy Nothing Day? Thats just silly and it totally misses the point of BND.

Apple is, after all, a corporation...

Although most of us love Apple and the products they make, and Apple wants to make it's customers happy, they are a corporation, not a good friend.

If Apple wanted to give the best deals possible, they would sell iPhones for the cost of the materials only. But they don't. They need to make money. Does anyone else remember when Apple almost bit the dust due to bankruptcy?

I am fine with them wanting to make a substantial gain on the products they make.

It is very kind of them to give any discount whatsoever, as they don't owe us a thing.

Bleh, sentiment shared with everyone else. Rather have a decent discount on iPod touch or another product then subpar discounts on every product.

huge disappointment..I mean their sales prices are everyday prices at other retailers (online). I agree, a few larger discounts on big tickets items vs. smaller discounts on small ticket items would have been more appealing and satisfying to new and old customers alike. (and probably more profitable) Photoshop Elements 4.0 must be really crappy software given the huge discount on it.

For that price I'll finally upgrade from my Office v. X. Only $25 for Office 2004 student and teacher edition on Amazon after rebate, then get the upgrade to 2008 Special Media Edition

That is what I am doing. Say what you want about Microsoft but $25 for the newest edition, that is impossible to pass by!

Does the $100 off MS Office only apply to US customers?

The only deal I liked was on the iPhone V-Moda Headphones...I have been looking at them for a while (since they became fully functional with the iPhone) and the $21 off plus my $25 giftcard made me buy them.;)

Very happy. But yeah, Apple discounts really aren't much because they are so specialized anyway. Did anyone really expect the iPhone to be discounted today? It wasn't even in the ad. Isn't a $200 sale good enough?

Wow....

VERY VERY unimpressed this year......

iLife is barely a deal.

Where is .Mac this year????

Why is Leopard not discounted????

The only thing I think my wife is going to hop on is the iPhone BT earpiece.

Feel like frickin Charlie Brown at Halloween..... "I got a rock....."
