Do you think there will be any good deals worth waiting for this year? I'm looking forward to upgrading from my mid-2011 model.

Best Buys may throw you a $50 gift card. Don't exepect major discount.

Apple tends to have the same or similar sales year after year.
See last year:

If there are good deals to be had, they may be from retailers other than Apple themselves.

Agreed. Apple BF sales are rather stingy, and are of benefit if you know you're going to have to buy whatever item is on sale anyway. There may be one or two items that may be worth a major look; one year they offered microsoft office for mac media edition for $149 instead of the ($500?) MSRP.

Otherwise, you'd probably get a better discount at a best buy or a online reseller.

Refurbished are 365 days a year deals ;)
That's what I got last September and could not tell the difference from a new one other than 3 battery cycles and $360 savings

You might be better off checking prices at Best Buy. Within last week they had MBA 11" i5/4/128 for $899 and MBA 13" i5/4/256 for $1099.

Since this thread is about Black Friday I would assume this is a US thread....

Apple applies Black Friday discounts on other country's, I bought my cMBP last year with about 100€ discount! So other people outside the us might follow this topic, and for them as for me unfortunately, there are no refurbs
