Where to buy cheap Apple iPad?

Where can you buy the cheapest official Apple iPad in Asia?

That’s what we also wanted to know. So what we did was compare the prices of the iPad offered  in official Apple online stores in each country. In Asia Pacific, the iPad is being sold in Apple Online Stores in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore.

The local prices were converted to US Dollar using the rate on September 20, 2010. The prices are the displayed prices and do not include taxes or other fees that might be additionally charged.

So where can we find the cheapest Apple iPad in Asia Pacific?

(Update: Prices of APPLE iPad 2 Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore)

  1. Using the iPad as an eBook reader is comfortable to the reader as well as it is very light and thin, weighing in at 1.5 lbs at.5″ thin.

    • Bidzinga, They sent me a defective iPAD and promised replacement and also refund for the shipment and also the customs tax and other liabilities incurred. They have yet to send me the replacement. It has been more than two months now. I kept asking for the replacement on their support and all they say is that they will send it tomorrow or within the week. I still got nothing. Just lost my hard earned money to them. They scammed me. I got proof if there is anybody who wants to rant against me. I am open for discussion.

      • how much did you pay for the “customs tax and other liabilities incurred”? i just want to get an idea how much are you gonna spend for a particular item in case you won…
