Apple Australia's Black Friday Sale Is On Now

Apple doesn’t bring you bargain shopping often, so when it does it’s good to get in quickly. Apple is today celebrating Black Friday (a typically US-centric shopping day) with some sweet sales on iPads, Macs, iPods and various accessories. Let us round up all the deals for you here.

Angus over at Lifehacker prepared some delicious-looking tables earlier, so get scrolling and see what you can save.

iPad deals

Item Sale price Regular price Saving % Saving
iPad 16GB Wi-Fi $498 $539 $41 7.6%
iPad 32GB Wi-Fi $598 $649 $51 7.9%
iPad 64GB Wi-Fi $694 $759 $65 8.6%
iPad 4G 16GB $638 $679 $41 6.0%
iPad 4G 32GB $738 $789 $51 6.5%

iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi $398 $429 $31 7.2%
iPad 2 16GB 3G $538 $569 $31 5.4%

The iPad deals aren’t terrible. A $40 saving will snag you a Smart Cover for free, for example, and once you factor in shipping from other cheap outlet stores, you’re probably going to end up at this price anyway. Plus, Apple gives you free engraving, too.

MacBook deals

MacBook Pro 13in 2.5GHz $1,244 $1,349 $105 7.8%

MacBook Air 13in 256GB $1,584 $1,689 $105 6.2%

Again, the savings all over around the 8-10 per cent range, and that’s something you can get knocked off the price with a decent haggle or a spot special at Dick Smith or JB Hi-Fi.

iPod deals

iPod Nano 16GB $158 $169 $11 6.5%

Same deal here: you can probably snag these types of prices at your local gadget retailer, but it’s nice to have them direct from Apple for a change.

You’ve got until 2am tomorrow to snap up a bargain.
