    I'm going to purchase 13" or 15" rMBP next week during Black Friday sales.
    What sort of deals can I expect from Apple, and from other vendors?

    zero, although I think last year Apple had a small discount if you ordered for the Apple Store.

    The Black Friday adds have been out for a week or so, have you looked?

    The AIr is on sale and the basic 13"

    It's usually really low. Amazon tends to have much better deals. Apple tends to do like 8% or 10% off. Student discount is better.

    $100 tops. Better off finding a student in your family to purchase with a discount. The student discount chops a big chunk off of the AppleCare cost as well (something you'll want to have for a rMBP IMO)

    Amazon has the 13 inch Retina for $1,561.00 right now and I don't think that it will get much lower than that no tax and free ship

    That a great deal. Better than my Employee Discount through work that I used 2+ weeks ago. By about $30.

    Best Buy will probably throw in a gift card or something

    Some retailers will have a gift card offer with the purchase of a Mac - that might be a better deal than just getting $50-70 off the list price. Also, Best Buy has been running a %5 discount on all Macs fairly regularly over the last couple of years.

    Yes indeed it's now dropped down to around $1560 for Retina 13"

    It may actually go lower than this to around $14XX during peak holiday to clear stock, I would think (maybe).

    NONE! and if you find one it's going to be a risible discount.
