    looking like it could be only £399 wifi only which isn't too bad.

    Hopefully! The release date should be a lot earlier than May for the wifi version also.

    It looks like amazon have removed the pricing, I guess they jumped the gun.

    I say aye aye!!

    $499 = £308 going by todays exchange rate...
    +17.5% VAT = £53.90

    So total will be £361.90.

    However, going by that method, the actual pricing for the most basic $999 MacBook, we should have it in the UK for £619 + VAT (£108.32) = £727.32. Although it retails here for £816, which is £88.68 MORE.

    £88.68 is about 12.2% of the calculated £727.32. So if we add the same 12% to the calculated price of the iPad (£361.90), which is £43.42, which therefore equals £405.32.

    And Apple will probably round this down to £399.

    Apologies for my very sad tendencies, but you can now pretty much guarantee it's coming here for £399 or thereabouts now. :)

    Far better maths and consideration than i even suggested to attempt.
    £399 would be tickety-boo.

    Nice maths. I hope you're correct - I am preparing myself for it to be £449, then I might be pleasantly surprised. Then of course, I'll fritter the 'saving' away on accessories and/or the higher capacity model :rolleyes:

    I read an article in the Guardian today which said that Apple themselves have stated that they will not announce the UK prices until it starts shipping in 58 days ;)
