Apple's Black Friday savings by the numbers: 7% to 16%

November 25, 2011: 6:30 AM ET

Biggest savings on Macs. Best deals on accessories. But beware the malware.

Apple Inc.

Apple (AAPL) posted its Black Friday sale prices at 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time Friday and they were exactly as rumored.

The savings on Apple-branded products range from a high of 15.94% on $69 accessories like the Magic Trackpad to 7.02% -- less than the sales tax in 25 states -- on the $299 Time Capsule 2TB.

A guide to the best deals:

WARNING: Online shoppers looking for Black Friday bargains are a popular target for the purveyors of malware and spam, and one of this year's big cons, according to the German blog Eleven Security (English translation), is an e-mail purportedly from Apple with the subject line "iTunes Gift Certificate" that offers $50 but delivers instead a Microsoft (MSFT) Windows executable file. It's believed to contain a trojan or worm. Don't click on the .zip.
