    Hi From Australia
    I fell in love with the ipad2 a couple of months ago after seeing a friends. I just have to have one! After nagging hubby non stop for weeks much to my delight, he told me to just go and buy one and it can be my Christmas present. So in the next week or so thats exactly what I will do, still deciding which shop to get it, as there is no Apple store within a 6 hour drive from here. There are 3 places here selling them at the moment, all with a $1 different price range, so its just a matter of finding the one to give me the best help. I'm wondering if there will be a big price drop the closer to Christmas its gets.
    In the mean time I am busy reading and learning as much as I can on this forum, as I am completely new to Apple stuff, there is some great information here.
    Thanks for letting me join this forum.
