Black Friday is almost upon us and many of you are going to be scouring your areas for some of the best deals found all year. Yesterday, we told you about the price cuts and discounts that Apple distributors are offering and it looks like it will be quite an event at the Apple Store. In New Zealand and Australia the sales have already begun, though the only Macs on sale are the iMac and MacBook. For those of you wanting to get an iPhone 3G for a friend or loved one, walking out without having activated the handset first still isn’t an option. You can however, give them a gift card for the iPhone 3G and they get some special treatment from a sales rep where they will help them set up the phone, configure email accounts and even add some tunes so your loved one can walk out a happy camper. There will also be personal shoppers on hand to assist customers, like they always do. Come to think of it, short of the modest discounts it has lined up, Apple’s Black Friday event will likely be just like any other day – only with a slightly bigger crowd.
