    But I doubt it's going to be more than those with EPP savings...

    I never even went to Amazon on a Black Friday, are the deals really that great? and do they start at midnight or at like 6 AM in the mourning? Also how well stocked is it, like if I go out shopping that day and don't come back until like 3:00 PM will anything be left?

    I'm goin to watch it too, but I'm goin to camp out in Wal-mart's Black Friday. I'll watch the amazon deals on my iPhone anyways.;) I'm also waiting for Live.com 30% AND ebay's 10% off deal. Oh yeah. :D

    While Amazon offers great deals, there are limited quantities and getting in on them is quite a difficult task. Good luck to those who try.

    What exactly is a Live.com 30%? I'm planning on buying a Macbook Pro (previous generation) in about 2 weeks, where except amazon should I be on the lookout?

    Well, they offer cash back for other popular sites, but it's more like 1%-10% compared to the 25%-30% you can get for ebay.

    I suppose I'll check it out. It's certainly a better idea than going to a store on black Friday. I wouldn't do that if they were handing out $20 bills at the door.

    Whether its Amazon or the Apple stores, it certainly will be worth the
    wait at this point. Rumors suggest savings could be even bigger than last year
    at Apple stores because of the current consumer crisis.

    Every time Amazon has a huge blackfriday sale their webpage is usually so unresponsive by the time you get to ordering the item (if you get that far) they are gone, gone gone.

    So can anyone speculate what the laptop prices might go down to?

    Thanks,
