Are you in the market for an iPad 2 and looking for the best deal? Well, it seems that Best Buy might be your best bet.

The electronics retailer has slashed $50 off the price of all iPad 2 tablets.

This price cut brings the cost of a budget 16GB WiFi iPad 2 down to $449.99, and the top end 64GB WiFi + 3G iPad 2 to a more reasonable $779.99.

The reason for the iPad 2 price cut is pretty obvious. We're all sitting around patiently waiting for Apple to announce the date for the announcement of the iPad 3!

Rumors are all over the place as to what the iPad 3 will bring, ranging from a 'retina display,' quad-core processor, LTE modem and retweaked case.

    $779.99 for an iPad? That is outrageous. You could get a fully functional high spec'd laptop for that which is capable of doing a whole lot more. I can't understand some people's needs to limit themselves and pay extra to do it.

    • Your mind just spent a night in the box

      They don't want to do "a whole lot more." What they want is to do a little bit in a whole lot more places. Provided they are spending their own money, that is a tradeoff they get to make for themselves. Why should it matter to you what they do?

    • Just because you don't understand

      Just because you don't understand doesn't mean people don't know what they are doing with their own money. Spending it on iPad makes much more sense to me, for example, than to waste it on any version of malware infested droid. And you're right, for $700 you get a nice laptop. My kids look at laptops as if it was some prehistoric curiosity. That's probably because the laptop screen doesn't respond to their finger touches. They prefer iPad above all. They are 2 and 6 years old. I guess in a free country people can spend their money on whatever they please.
  • What this tells me...

    is the iPad 3 release is imminent.
  • Just go to Apple's store

    and buy a refurb at a great price.
