    ----------

    Some deals on Time capsule too, and some good ones on trackpads and keyboards too.

    Not much off cases and covers though.

    On the whole, there are a few bargains there, but no thunderbolt displays (big surprise)

    Sorry to threadjack, but I have what might be a dumb question. Does the UK actually "celebrate" Black Friday, or something similar? Or is this just a sale since Apple is from the states?

    Do we don't really have black Friday. I think a few retailers choose to have sales today anyway, or start Christmas sales, but I doubt you will see many references to black Friday. I'd never even heard of it until I joined MacRumors!

    Some areas of the UK, certainly in the north have what's called "Black Eye Friday", its the last pay day before christmas and considered the busiest time of the year for emergency services... But its more to do with drunken debauchery than anything else.

    Here in the uk we are intelligent enough to be able to manage Christmas 1st time without a trial run the month before ;):D
