    I'm considering doing it but not exactly sure either. I'll buy it from you for $550!! Lol. Honestly the only thing I think that would be worth it is not having to wait anymore.

    I'd pay an extra 100 for mine right now. But then again I'm in Canada. So a good price for a 16gb right now is about 750-800 LOL.
    :eek:

    You have to think about time and money. And how badly you want one now vs waiting 4-5 weeks.

    It's a personal decision whether to "overpay" for an item.

    U paid $650 for an item that was probably worth $525-550 depending on state taxes.

    So u "overpaid about $130". Some of us are small business owners and can generate more than that kind of money in less than an hour.

    So how hard does it take for u to work for $130 and can you wait 4-5 weeks? Apparently you made that choice already. Just enjoy your iPad 2 now.

    Your username betrays you........that model is worth 499USD.......with 49 more dollars you could have gotten a 64GB WIFI.......not too smart unless you ship to HONG KONG......they pay 1250USD for WIFI 16G models......or so all the tech blogs claim....

    The model is worth 499 PLUS TAX. So you paid like 100 over retail, not a bad deal really if your happy with it.

    Gave $850 for a 32gig 3G ATT model, considing I live in a 10% sales tax area that is only a $50 premium and I already listed it on CL and have interest at $950 to $1000.

    Really just wanted a 64gig wifi in Black so for now hanging on to this until I find a trade or a store with stock. Reselling these is not going to an issue for the next several weeks if not months,the demand is through the roof.

    you can sell that way over it's retail price is you ship internationally (and being careful about it) on eBay...

    I would probably sell mine to buy another with more accessories (and maybe a couple for my mac as well)...

    business is business. :cool:

    That apple corp really has its way with the England population, for what reason do they attribute the price disparity?

    I bought my white 32GB Wi-Fi for $95 over retail+tax and feel like it was definitely worth it. I got it Tuesday night and have avoided many hours of trying to track down an iPad or camping in front of an Apple Store.

    It's all about perceived value. How much is your enjoyment of the iPad today worth?

    England is part of the UK and GB

    Great Britain = the island of Britannia (England, Wales and Scotland)

    UK = United Kingdom of Great Britain (Britannia) and Northern Ireland

    The Isle of Man and Channel Islands are not part of the UK
