Apple recorded its best-ever sales day this Black Friday

Black Friday has passed and if you survived the craziness, you can tell the story, but what you probably didn’t know is that none other but Apple broke its sales record on that very day. Initial forecasts were for a four-fold increase in sales on Black Friday as Apple actually offered the lowest price on the most sought after devices of the season like the iPad 2. Customers however were more active than expected and the projected sales were surpassed by 7pm.
“Apple Retail was forecast and broke Retail sales records all over the country today, this is from [redacted] today, the forecast today is more than 4 times what we normally do. We broke the forecast by 7pm,” a source inside Apple Retail shared for 9to5Mac.
As you can see, there’s also a detailed chart below proving the findings so there’s little room for doubt. The actual numbers however were whited out for pretty obvious reasons. Apart from the iPad 2, MacBook Airs have also reportedly registered excellent sales. The discount for the iPad 2 stood at $41 to $61, while MacBook Airs were $101 off.
Did you or someone you know purchase discounted Apple gear on Black Friday?

Hmm looks like the $0.01 DROIDS didn't help. Apple once again shows people are willing to pay for quality.

They are talking about tablets and computers. Most of the money came from those two. The phones weren't on sale. The only reason you act like this is because your jealous of how popular android is. If ur an apple fanboy don't be stupid about it. Admit android phones are good but you like the iPhone better.

Might be going off topic here. :P Apple sold only 15 iPhone 4S units in the tech capital of my country. And if you guys are wondering, it costs approximately $1200 unlocked for the 64GB model over here . Even the ''overpriced, outdated, who's gonna buy it'' Blackberries that you guys crib about all the time are selling like hot cakes. :P

Not wanting to spend $1200 on a phone doesn't necessarily mean someone is broke... And before you go all taco on me about iPhones not costing $1,200 go back and read the post you replied to (which you probably didn't read in the first place) and then delete whatever you would say and write something that makes sense.
