Since Apple iPad 2 began selling in Malaysia on 29th April, 2011, I haven’t had the chance to even look at it. I don’t know if it’s in Ipoh already but of the few times that I went malling, I didn’t see the iPad 2 on display. I’ve only come across stores that sell iPad accessories while stores that do sell the iPad 2 do not have any display unit.

On a recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, I managed to get hands-on with iPad 2 though all the stores that I visited are out of stock as well. I was told that interested buyers have to put down their names and they will be contacted once new batches of iPad 2 arrive in a few weeks’ time. Since I was almost close to number 300 in the waiting list, I decided to pass. I am no Apple fangirl and I can certainly wait.

Let’s compare the current prices of iPad 1 (iPad first generation) and iPad 2 in Malaysia:
