Apple’s Black Friday Sale Already Available In Australia, New Zealand

Looks like those ahead of us timezone-wise can already enjoy the discounts offered by Apple in its Black Friday sale. A few minutes ago the sale went online in the Australia and New Zealand Apple online stores, and it applies to MacBooks, iPads, iPod touches and a variety of accessories.

We don’t know yet how these prices will translate in the European and American Apple stores. In Australia you can save A$51 on the iPad and iPod Touch, A$25 on the iPod Nano and  A$121 on iMac and MacBooks. In New Zealand there’s a NZ$7 discount on Apple’s iPad case, Camera Connection Kit and iPad Dock. Dozens of other accessories and applications such as Office 2011 for Mac are included in the sale.

If we consider current conversion rates (from AUD to USD), there should be a $118 discount on iMac and MacBooks, $50 on iPad and iPod Touch, $24 on the iPod Nano. Basing on these numbers, it seems like there will be a 10% discount on all products. In the meantime, Amazon already cut the price of the iPod touch 4th gen: check it out here.

You can check out all the offers here (Australia) and here (New Zealand).
