Actually the diff is much less than $190. It IS S$190 cheaper than before the drop in price but it will almost surely NOT be $190 cheaper than the ipad 2.

Why?

The old price of $728 was based on an ex rate of ard 1.46 (based on US$499). The new price of $538 is based on a lower ex rate of ard 1.35 (based on US$399).

Hence, assuming the rate remains the same, the ipad 2 shd be priced at S$673.

The diff is more like S$135 which makes sense since the drop in price was US$100.

It may still be a significant difference for some to prefer the ipad 1 over the ipad 2 but it's important to get the figures right when making a decision.

Of course nobody knows now what the ex rate n the S$ price will be when the ipad 2 eventually launches in Singapore - there r also other factors like gst, profit margins etc but the above is my best guess analysis.

Not only SG, but Msia also out of stock. Just went JB City Square, also no stock. The staff say whole Msia bo stock also, unless order online...

I dont think ipad2's price will be S$6xx...

how about gst rise to 10% instead of 7% now? ipad 2 may have 10% gst..

Let say new ipad 2 price is S$700 (7% GST included), even gst rise to 10% mean 3% more. 3% of S$700 = S$21, for me not much different, but of course we got to pay extra S$21...

of course!Lol just now I went to IT show surprised my friend's gf also own an ipad.

she just owned it.

well there is still a market for ipad1 major point is the price reduce.Hey remember apple don't always give discounts on their products unless "special event" or as usual when a new upgraded version launch old ones surely will be selling in discount rates.
