Why do we ALWAYS forget to stock up on the newest technology only to reap the benefits when it goes out of stock in stores!
The sold-out iPad 2 is unavailable in most major cities and has created such a high demand that people are buying them for 40% more than the retail price on eBay!
The highly coveted predecessor to the original iPad, which accounted for 90% of of the 18 million tablet devices sold last year, was being auctioned off on the internet every few minutes for upwards of $700 (compared to the retail $499).
It seems that people can't bear to wait the 3-4 weeks when ordering directly from Apple, and are instead opting to pay hundreds more for overnight shipping from eBay.
Patience is a virtue people!
Would U pay more for an iPad 2 instead of waiting to purchase it at retail price?
