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."

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.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

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!

Mark Escubio

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
