I'm looking into buying a MacBook Air this month. The current price at Apple is $1,199, and guessing they'll have it for $1,098 for Black Friday. Amazon has it for $1,099.99 right now. Does Amazon traditionally discount them by another $100 for Black Friday, or should I go ahead and purchase from them now?

I've never seen Amazon discount any Apple products for BF. Plus Apple usually only offers a 5% BF discount on current gen Apple products not the 10% are you are anticipating.

Fry's usually have it for $999 ($200 off). That model goes on sale every other week. This week, it's the version with retina display for $1,549 ($150 off).

A few weeks ago Amazon list it as $1030 I think.

I have mine like new 13 inch air latest model up for sale at eBay if any one care? Solid 10 mo warranty left

you can get it from MacMall for 1066 after discount code (search appleinsider or FatWallet Cash Back).

no tax and free shipping.

Just pulled the trigger at $1,024.99
