    Link: Apple sees strong Black Friday sales lifted by retailers, analyst says
    Description:: Apple is projected to enjoy huge Mac sales from Black Friday, the biggest shopping day in a year, analyst said on Monday, citing third-party retailers as the key.

    Kaufman Brothers analyst Shaw Wu said on Monday that many resellers reported low inventory and ran out of stock for Macs.

    "Promotions through third-party retailers including, Best Buy, Wal-Mart and Target were more aggressive than usual," Wu said in the note, "with discounts as much as 20% vs. previous years of 11%-13%. Some even bundled generous gift cards (as much as $50 for iPods and $150 for Macs) to entice buyers. So far, many third-party discounts (though maybe not as aggressive) are continuing beyond Black Friday."
