Get the ipad 2 for $398

BiG W has just announced  the cheapest price ever  for the Ipad 2 in the Australian market. I grabbed  this offer this last week  as it was an offer i could not refuse. I compared prices on ebay , Local tech dealers  and could not come up with a cheaper price for the Ipad 2. The closest i got was $417 on ebay and $427 on a online local website

ipad 2 or the New Ipad  3 ( with retina display)

There is big hoo haa about the new ipad 3 or the NEW ipad which has the retina display  and  a faster processor which retails at $ at the moment from the apple store  , but i opted  for the ipad 2 as i am not too fussed  about a retina display   as long as i can get a good enough display which the ipad 2 has  for watching movies , reading books and surfing websites.

For me, I bought the iPad 2 because it was cheaper and serves the exact same purpose – entertaining me while I waiting for something or during travelling. I don’t care for quality.

If you are looking for some  more Plus points to buy the older ipad 2 (601 grams),i can tell you its lighter than the new ipad (652 grams) and its slimmer as well. Besides you can save some money by getting the ipad 2  and spend that money on getting that neat little APPLE TV media box  and get all your media interconnected even to the TV.
