Apple's "Black Friday" 24hr sale comes to UK

Want to bag yourself some cut-price Apple gear? Perhaps you're thinking of splashing out on a new aluminium MacBook? Or maybe a second-gen iPod touch?

Well, mark this Friday in your diary with a fat red marker: Apple is holding a one-day sale.

Yep, 28th November will see Apple slash prices on stacks of kit, much like they do with their US "Black Friday" sales.

A month before Christmas, we guess it's a good time to snap up some cheap presents for friends and family - although personally we'll be looking to pick out something for us first; Gran doesn't need an iPod after all.

There's no word on exactly which bargains we'll see, with Apple's email simply stating: "Lots of gifts. 1 day not to miss. The special one-day Apple shopping event. Friday, November 28". It does say that prices will be reduced both in-store and online, however.

Wallets at the ready, folks.
