(UPDATE: The deal in question was a misprint in the Fry's ad and they actually meant the Mac Mini) Looking for a sweet Black Friday deal? Search no further if you want an iMac, because Fry's Electronics is offering a 20-inch iMac with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor for $794. It's priced so low we're thinking it might be a misprint. Considering that the cheapest 20-inch iMac usually sells for $1199 (that's with the 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo), and this one with the 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo normally sells for $1499, this looks like it could be one hell of a deal.

I'd think they'd be covered by posting a sign in the window. I think the state Attorneys General would go after stores if they made a habit of offering deals that were supposed 'misprints', but I don't think the stores have any real benefit from it. Odds are nobody's going to Fry's and going to go ahead and buy it for full price after seeing that, they would have already gotten it from the Apple store if they were willing to pay full price. The AGs usually are busy enough with the crazy Greek guy selling shady electronics in the warehouse district.
