    Edit- 5.30pm its now available

    Really gets on my nerves that Hong Kong apple keep doing this lottery system ( that you can enter everyday and have no luck at all)

    I should of known they wouldn't of allowed preorders even though the apple website clearly said you could!

    So jealous of you guys in the rest of the world!

    Normally they don't advertise you can pre order from the 26 online, this time they did so I thought maybe they would... Just says " currently unavailable" :((

    Yes I blame the scalpers!

    It is the way is has always been. Does not seem fair but it is the game we play.

    I think pre-orders were available, it's just that they sold out insanely quickly. again, probably the fault of scalpers.

    I'm not so sure, I was watching it change from store closed, and it went straight to unavailable. All iPad 4 models are unavailable too.


    iPad 4's & Mini's are now available to order

    Is it possible to place an order on apple HK with me living in UK?

    My parents are going there on Sunday for 3 weeks, so they can bring it back for me, will I be charged any additional fees on my credit card or will it just be the $2588 for base model and exchange rate into £
