Black Friday 2012 MacMall Sale: Discounted iPads, iPods and Retina MacBook Pros

The Black Friday 2012 MacMall sale kicked off earlier today and the online retailer is offering iPads, iPods and Retina MacBooks at discounted rates.

MacMall is a third party Apple retailer affiliated with the site MacRumors. Third party sellers normally offer better deals on Apple products than the actual company.

Customers can purchase the 4th generation Wi-Fi iPad in all three memory capacities for cheaper than normal. The 16GB version sells for $474, the 32GB for $558, and the 64GB model will retail for $654.

The retailer is also offering various MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models with $101 discount and the dual-core and quad-core Mac Mini with $25.

The new Retina MacBooks are being discounted as well with $101 off the 13-inch model and $151 off the 15-inch. This is probably the biggest and best savings on the site.

There will also be a Black Friday sale through Apple where devices such as the iPad, iPod, MacBook Pro and iMac will be discounted significantly.

Apple posted a teaser page on its Australian online store for a "1-day Apple shopping event" set to take place on Friday Nov. 23, the day after Thanksgiving that is known to Americans as Black Friday.

"The one-day Apple shopping event is Friday, 23 November," wrote Apple. "Get ready to give. Shop online or visit your favorite Apple Retail Store. We'll help you make the most of the day, no matter how you shop."

Black Friday is normally reserved for Americans, since the day is special due to it taking place after Thanksgiving. However, Apple will be offering these sales to customers all over the world through its online and retail stores.

Offers for Black Friday include the iPad 2 with anywhere from $41 to $61 off, the iPod nano with $11 off, the iPod Touch with anywhere from $21 to $41 off, the MacBook Air with $101 off, MacBook Pro for $101 off, and the iMac for $101 off.

The iPad Mini, 4th generation iPad, and iPhone line all appear to have been left out of the company's holiday discount plan.
