It has been a while since Apple introduced its new iPad with new A5X dual core, quad core graphics and since the initial release, the product has been on allocation. Well not anymore, as a quick check of Apple's US web store and few stores in bigger and smaller European countries reveals.
If you buy any of the new iPads, they will ship without any delays. After the launch, it took up to three weeks of waiting to get the new iPad but now it ships on the same day.
It is also cute that in European markets you are getting Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad and now iPad 4G. This is more of less false advertising, as the iPad’s 4G was not supported in European networks due ro different frequencies and bands used.
If you are in the mood for some latest trends, a Retina 15 inch Apple notebook it will cost you between €2279 or €2899 for a better strapped model. If you pick a 100MHz faster CPU, 16GB of Ram and 768 GB of SSD memory, you will hit "magical" €3849 euro.
A decent mouse and fancy carry bag and such will easily tip i over to 4000 euro. In fact, just picking a few cables and converters from Apple store got us to €4163 and this is not the end of it.
One can be only lucky that Apple doesn’t make cars or TVs. Otherwise you would be talking to your bank about additional mortgage, most probably the third one.
