iPad 2 Australian pricing leaked?

Australian iPad 2 pricing leaked: Set for launch at 5pm, Friday 25 March?

A post on Australian technology forum Whirlpool has possibly revealed iPad 2 pricing details.

Read our comprehensive iPad review and our iPad 2 preview.

Initially reported by Nick Broughall over at Gizmodo, the user Brown2Hornet included specific model numbers of all iPad 2 devices and accessories, including the range of smart covers and the digital AV adapter that allows the iPad to hook up to a television using a HDMI connection. Although the post can't be confirmed, it looks pretty legitimate to us.

"Here's the pricing. Don't ask where I got this because I'm unable to reveal. Launch will be this Friday from 5PM (same time as US launch)," he said in the post. "Prices include GST. Launch is 5pm local time (regardless of timezone) for retail stores and resellers. Not sure when online store will start taking orders. Red covers will be sold online only."

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
