Update (11/26 2:00pm): MacMall’s Black Friday 60 Hour Sale is now live.
Update (11/26 2:00am): We have added the entire MacMall Black Friday ad.
MacMall is a shopping mecca for Apple fans looking to save some money. With the biggest shopping day of the year coming up, there’s no doubt many of you have been waiting to get a peek at MacMall’s Black Friday plans. Well, we’ve finally got our hands on them and we can’t wait to share them with you.
MacMall offers deals on by far the largest selection of Apple products we’ve seen from any retailer this holiday season. Stores like Best Buy only stock standard configuration Macs, but MacMall carries high-end and custom configuration models. Also, keep in mind that MacMall only charges tax at the time of purchase for buyers in nine states (CA, CO, GA, IL, MN, NC, NY, TN, and WI).
That being said, here are all of the deals that MacMall is planning to kick off tomorrow, Wednesday 26th at 12:01 PM PST: expand full story
Black Friday always offers a wide variety of discounts on a number of products, but so far this year its been slim for consumers looking for a new Mac. We have confirmed some deals from Best Buy, but they are not offering a wide variety of configurations, and have tax implications depending on your state.
Adorama and B&H Photo are both offering discounts on most Mac models this week, we’ve already spotted a nice price drop on an iMac with Retina 5K display + AppleCare from Adorama.
In some cases Adorama is bundling AppleCare with a purchase for a discounted price. B&H currently only charges for taxes for New York residents at the time of purchase, while it varies for Adorama. Additionally, you’ll need a free Adorama VIP membership to take advantage of these prices.
Below you’ll find our top picks for deals on current generation MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, Mac Pro and Mac Mini from these two retailers so far:

Seiki is pushing the envelope of budget 4K HDTVs even further with the introduction of a new 55″ model for just $1,499. This big-screen offering joins their current lineup which includes a 39 and 50-inch model. The only catch is that it is available exclusively at Sears. It can be used as a TV or massive computer monitor (hello Mac Pro!). With a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, it should create a pretty amazing ultra-HD experience.
The Seiki 55-inch class 4K model features a thin piano black finish bezel, 54.6-inch diagonal panel size, built-in digital and analog channel tuning, USB port for displaying 4K photos via USB flash drive, and multiple video and audio connections to support current standard and high-definition video content. The model is also packaged with an HDMI 1.4 standard cable.
Now here’s the kicker. If you can hold off on your purchase for two weeks, the Seiki SE55UY04 will be just $849.99 on Black Friday from Sears. That’s a $650 price drop and by far the best price on a 4K TV/monitor of its size. Sears guarantees there will be at least 2 units per store. No word on if the deal will be live online. (via BFads)
