    Here the stores have tons of stock now. Was at best buy and they had at least 40 ipad 2 in stock and apparently has been there for awhile now. If this was 3 months ago that cabinet would have been cleaned out within the hour of receiving stock.

    It's a pretty obvious outcome.

    They are still fairly difficult to get hold of in Hong Kong. At the Apple online HK store they are stated as 'currently unavailable' - for several months already. Sometimes you can get a wifi model, the 3G version is very hard to find.

    Demand has not slowed in Australia even with stock available.

    Just curious how do you know what is sold and stock available with best buy store are you a manager and work there? By the way 40 iPads is a small stock holding. Our sister store is selling average 5 a day here and we re small compared to best buy. What I am saying is stock on hand means nothing to customers as you have no idea of model breakdown or what specials that may be coming

    How do you know "stores have tons of stock" Do you call or ask each one? Best Buy told you they had 40 in stock?

    Your threads are without words.

    Why do you say that when demand still exceeds supply 40 ipads in stock is nothing Our stores whom are Cerified ipad dealers carry minimum 50 around 8 per model I know as I am employed in a similar type store in Australia US has even a larger range of models than in australia so the numbers are small

    I agree. Once people know they can get something, they also know they can wait until they feel the time is right. When things are difficult to find, people generally will buy something without as much hesitation. Human nature 101 I guess.

    just bought my first ipad 2 32g last night at Bestbuy and the store clerk said they had 20 of the 3g and 20 of the wifi, but he said they normally last 2 days before they run out.

    apple stores always bring small quantities of iPads and tell every one that they have limited quantities specially the white ones. The throw impression that iPads will nt be available any more in the Mkt which make everyone to urgently get it
