Hello, Apple Financing? Yes, I’d Like to Extend My Credit Line.

Apple’s annual Black Friday shopping event has never been known for its massive discounts, and this year is no exception, according to a sale flyer leaked to 9to5Mac.

Come Friday, the company will offer discounts of $101 on the iMac, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro; $21-$41 on the iPod touch; and $11 on the iPod nano. Discounts on the iPad 2 will range from $41 for the basic WiFi-only models, to $61 for the higher-end version of the device with 3G support.

Most of Apple’s deals fall in the 5 to 10 percent off range, which isn’t exactly steep. That said, they’re probably more than enough to get Black Friday shoppers flocking to the company’s stores — those who weren’t headed there already. All told, Apple’s retail stores generated $3.6 billion in revenue last quarter.
