Apple Black Friday Discounts Less Than Some Expected; Cheaper Prices on Macs, iPods From Some Resellers

Apple’s (AAPL) Black Friday discounts are less than some on the Street had expected, and smaller than those being offered by some retail chains. But the company seems to have adopted an unofficial price-matching policy, which makes the picture a little fuzzier than it appears at first glance.

Some examples:

  • 13-inch Macbooks, $101 off
  • 20-inch iMac, $51 off
  • 8 GB iPod Nano, $11 off
  • 8 GB iPod Touch, $21 off
  • iPod Classic, $21 off

Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
