    Hope you're kidding. Apple does not sell on Amazon. The seller in your screenshot is some random 3rd party. It is the common practice of 3rd party sellers to either price things ridiculously high so as to net the naive, or to do so because they are out of stock of an item and don't want you to order, but want to maintain a placeholder page on Amazon.

    Supply and demand. Want it now, you have to pay for it. Be patient for a couple weeks and get it at retail ($169).

    Got mine on preorder. Should be here in January. Can't wait! Bet it's gonna feel like $500 worth of keyboard at the great deal I got at $170!

    If you have an Apple Store nearby, keep checking in store pickup option. Maybe you will be able to pick one up before your order ships.

    This one of the reasons I hate third-party sellers on Amazon. :mad:

    You can also check Best Buy regularly. I ordered a Pencil Friday and it arrives Monday. The get stock in randomly but sell out quickly.

    You have a serious problem with treating the forum like your Facebook feed. Stop making threads. No one cares.

    Got mine on Friday via Best Buy. Oh, and my Apple Pencil. Silly to pay over the odds.

    It also causes the iPad Pro to eventually bend. No thanks

    It does look better in some ways but it's so big! If you were gonna use your iPad like a laptop all the time sure. But I like to use my keyboard....then take it off....then use it. And if doesn't go in and out of the Logitech case very easily.
