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.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

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.

MSI P65

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

MSI GT76

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

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

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

MSI PS63

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

Brother RJ-4230B

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.
