I almost bought an AirPort Express, but that looks to be Amazon's everyday price. Oh well, I picked up some Blu-ray movies on the cheap at Walmart this morning. Laughing

I know you can do better elsewhere, but some discounts on the Mac mini and MacBook would have been nice.

Apple Canada also has a One-Day event. You may want to see if your countries Apple store has a special today.

I got Bento 3 ...was about to get Toast 10 too, but changed my mind.

I was hoping for the G-Tech hard drives to be on sale, but they aren't and Mac Mall has a better price on those; I've been wanting to get a FW800 drive for a while.

I could have received a whopping $5 discount on the new keyboard if I had only waited. Oh well, live and learn. Wink

I know, nothing to really write home about. Exactly what i was expecting.

One thing that I did find interesting is the refurb prices (nothing to do with Black Friday). What I noticed is the previous 24" refurb iMac went down $400 when the new model came out. I'm talking about a model that listed for $1900 CDN was listed as a refurb for $1600 and then new model comes out and it is $1200 the next day. That's a huge savings.

I'll keep this strategy in mind when looking for a new machine.

That's always the best time to buy things now. That's when I got my MBP from Amazon. The rufurbs are such a great deal though. I would never buy "new" again.

Amazon beats them by $12 if you change your mind about Toast again.

Thanks, Amazon does have a better price ...not to mention no taxes and free shipping too.

I think Amazon is beating everyone on pricing these days. They are really aggressive.
