Black Friday has finally hit Apple’s US Store though most of their deals don’t surpass Amazon, who are extremely aggressive this week.  Amazon also offer another $10 off for Discover card purchases and don’t make you jump through rebate hoops like other discounters (MacMall, MacConnection, ClubMac).  (Amazon has free shipping and is tax free to most states as well.)
