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.
