Ordering an iPad 2 online? That will be a four week wait, thanks.

Apple's iPad 2 is predictably in high demand

Apple's iPad 2 may have only been available for order online this morning, but you'll already be waiting up to a month for the second-generation tablet — Apple's Australian store already shows a shipping date of three to four weeks.

Read our comprehensive iPad review and our iPad 2 preview, and check out our iPad 2 resource centre for all you need to know about Apple's latest tablet.

The iPad 2 may be launching at 5pm today in stores, but unless you're already lining up, chances are you've missed the boat. A second option is online ordering, but this will also come with a hefty waiting time. As the image above shows from Apple's online store, all six models of the iPad 2 will ship between three and four weeks from now — meaning it will be more than a month before you'll get your hands on one.

The iPad 2 starts at $579 for the entry level 16GB Wi-Fi version.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
