Price @ Amazon Why is Amazon accepting the prices from these .com's when at the Apple store, B & H, even Target it's $499??? Are they so sure folks will assume that Apple's store has the *worst* price? Buyer beware!

You're looking at offerings from "third party" sellers, so Amazon is not setting the price, they're just handling the shipping of the item.

I don't see any listings where Amazon is the actual seller, only the shipper, so don't blame them for the pricing, that's determined by the third party seller.

I'm seriously pissed off about this pricing. I have an Amazon Rewards Visa card. I get three points for every dollar spent on an Amazon purchase vs one point for each dollar spent somewhere else. This is $60 above list price. It is just as cheap for me to drive to an Apple store and buy it and pay the sales tax as to purchase this iPad from Amazon. This is like a big middle finger raised at me from Amazon.

I agree. Why would anyone (I can't imagine anyone this ill informed) buy this at this price?

Amazon wants us to buy their tablet so they raise the price on the IPad, hoping we will see how inexpensive their tablet is and buy it. This will only work with very few uninformed customers. Amazon is missing out on a lot of sales by doing this.
