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.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
