Black Friday: Apple MacBook Pro $101 Off

By  |  2 Comments

Apple has finally listed some of its Black Friday deals at Apple.com. Apple is taking $101 off many Macs for Black Friday, including the 13″ MacBook Pro.

The entry-level 13″ MacBook Pro, which has a glossy screen, 4GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, a backlit keyboard, a 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a DVD burner. The MacBook Pro has a whopping 10 hours of battery life. Unlike other laptop manufacturers, Apple’s battery life estimates are often quite accurate.

If you are having a difficult time deciding between the MacBook Pro and the entry-level 13″ MacBook Air, you should understand the trade-offs of each.  The MacBook Air is much lighter and portable. The MacBook Air has a much faster drive, but it only has a 128GB capacity, about half the capacity. Also the battery life is a little bit longer on the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Air has less ports and doesn’t come with a DVD drive.

We have a full MacBook Black Friday buyers guide ready to help you make your choice. And here is a video review from MacMall:

    They sell based on the mentality that their products are worth paying for. Apple is all about image, nothing else. They don’t have to be the best company out there, they just have to make you think that. They don’t have to be the most innovative, just make it appear like they came up with it. They’re great at finding dying tech and resurrecting it and making it mainstream. They’re all show, little substance. But hey, it works for them – when was the last time you convinced someone that they needed a laptop without a keyboard?

    Nothing new from discounts of previous years. It’s unfortunate that Apple doesn’t see this as a lame effort to try and get people interested in buying their products. Apple can afford to do this because it knows it can get their loyal following (and maybe some new customers) to continue spending the premium prices it asks.
