There are tons of Apple product discounts at 3rd party resellers but Apple itself is only offering gift cards and only on its older products. I think Microsoft wins Black Friday here because they are offering $400 off their just announced Surface Book 256GB knocking the price down to $1499 shipped.  

And it includes a Surface Pen, 8GB RAM, Core i5 processor and a pretty solid package.

Grab the 128GB version for a very tempting $1249, $250 off.
