I can understand if it's a totally new gadget. But I can't understand what the fuss is about an old product with only some minor tweaks. People won't even know if you are carrying an old or new iPad unless they look at it real close.
That's because you are having a "buy new gadget to show off" mentality.

There are people who are actually buying to use it. For example, me.

And it's human nature to be eager to receive your new purchase ASAP. Nobody likes to wait.

Lastly, you are probably a troll bait. You are in a forum called the "iPad Sanctum". If you can't stand fanboyism, stay out.

i guess there are also people that sold off their iPad1/iPad2 in view of the new iPad hence they don't have an iPad now and wish to get it earlier.

and afterall you paid a sum of money for it, naturally you want to get it fast. who want to pre-order for something and wait for a month when your $ leave you instantly.

Right ok. Sorry, I will stay out. Thanks for showing me what fanboyism truly means.

Well, you can sell your iPad 2 as it will still fetch a good price and then top up a bit more to get new iPad

the correct question is, how low can you go?

if the buyer willing to pay you the same price you paid Apple, is it a problem?

people only mind the monetary loss part, seriously

I sold my ipad 2 with smart cover, total $1200 from May '11 at only $630 today. my mum can even tell me, ok lah, good enough price.

Which model did you order?

I think those who got delivery on 23 are the ones who ordered the more popular ones..
