Macs to be discounted on Black Friday

Plenty of rumors have been making their way around the blogosphere lately with regards to Apple’s plans for Black Friday. Nothing has been announced direct from the manufacturer yet, but MacMall has already started offering up some pretty sweet deals between now and midnight (PST) Friday, November 28. On top of the MacMall deals, Best Buy is also doing a little discounting of its own. In comparing the savings between Best Buy and MacMall, you’ll have to take into consideration instant savings versus mail-in rebates. Knowing how this time of year can make you impulsive or prone to instant gratification, we’re thinking Best Buy’s instant savings will beat out MacMall’s instant savings and mail-in rebate offers. You also can’t forget that MacMall orders aren’t taxed for most though – a huge selling point. Also, as a quick side note, Mac Office 2008 is being offered at 75% off, which is a huge cut for those of you who had been looking to pick up the otherwise pricey software. So, is anyone going to jump on these offers before it’s too late? We’re not quite sure Apple is going to offer anything better than its distribution partners this holiday season but it’ll be interesting to see what happens to the price-matching policy everyone has been talking about this week.
