amazon is usually the best price on electronics, but this time it isn't. go buy elsewhere. it is easy to pay list, pay no tax, and pay no shipping. i got mine for $510, in ten days shipping included (UPS two day takes 4 days when you ship on a thursday) no tax. see my tips on 'buying an iPad2 16gb wifi, posted in amazon reviews june 16, 2011. good luck, kent
J&R beat Ebay for iPad2 last time I looked. A used iPad2 on Ebay vs new iPad2 from Jacques at J&R. Good luck. But really they are so much fun that to wait for fifty or one hundred bucks really isn't worth it.
I just sent 3 emails asking the 3rd party vendors if they were going to reduces their prices,now that apple has. 1 has come back and said "no time soon". I dont understand, dont they want to sell their merchandise? Do they really think that some one will pay MORE than they can get it direct from Apple?
The saddest part is the refurbished market place sellers. Just got black refurbed - they replace everything - and comes with one year warranty. They are selling used as refurbed - and just shy off the price for new on every other site in the world.
