Apple one-day-only sale plans for Macs, iPads leaked to web

iPhone discounts a no show

Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

Apple plans to offer modest discounts on Macs, iPads, and iPods for one day only on Friday, according to the 9to5Mac website, which said a trusted tipster leaked the details of its day-after-Thanksgiving sales.

iMacs, MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros will be marked down by $101, while iPads will be discounted by $41 to $61 depending on capacity, the website reported. The iPod nano with 8GB and 16GB will both sell for $11 off the regular price.

If the information is correct, the biggest markdown would come to the MacBook Air. Prices for the paper-thin laptop normally starts at $999, so a $101 savings represents a 10-percent discount. The Black Friday discounts are similar to what has offered in previous years, which is to say they're not as generous as what other retailers are offering. A promotion being offered by Best Buy is marking down a MacBook Air by $200.

Apple will also be offering discounts on a variety of accessories, including iPad covers, wireless keyboards, and AirPort Expresses.

Noticeably absent from the Apple cost cutting is the iPhone.
