iPad 2 launch means cheap iPads!

Not interested in the iPad 2? Why not pick up an original iPad 64GB Wi-Fi for just $589

Apple's hotly anticipated iPad 2 is launching tomorrow in Australia, but if you're not interested in dual-cameras, and a slightly revamped design, why not pick up an original iPad on the cheap?

Read our comprehensive iPad review and our iPad 2 preview.

Online deal site CatchOfTheDay is offering a 64GB Wi-Fi iPad for just $589 — a saving of $100 over Apple's discounted prices for the first generation tablet.

You'll have to move quickly — CatchOfTheDay offers a deal every day at midday (Eastern Time) and is available for 24 hours and no more, unless sold out prior. The website lists the iPad as "limited stock" so we would guess it won't last long.

The iPad 2 is available from 5pm Friday through Apple retail stores and select authorised resellers. The comparable 64GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 model costs $799. Other iPad 2 models are priced as follows:

iPad 2 16GB – Wi-Fi $579.00
iPad 2 32GB – Wi-Fi $689.00
iPad 2 64GB – Wi-Fi $799.00

iPad 2 16GB – Wi-Fi + 3G $729.00
iPad 2 32GB – Wi-Fi + 3G $839.00
iPad 2 64GB – Wi-Fi + 3G $949.00

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
