That's from the Have2Have site. What the hell does the "+ 60%" part mean? Way to confuse people by hiding hidden costs? My dad is trying to figure out where to buy an iPad 2.So if you are an Apple aficionado, fanboy, oil sheik, or a member of Parliament, feel free to specify base price + 60% and you will be playing with your new iPad faster than you can say "two hundred dollars to the barrel" or "handsome tender privileges and kickbacks", The base pricing is set as follows:
16GB Wifi = R4,699
32GB Wifi = R5,699
64GB Wifi = R6,699
16GB Wifi + 3G = R5,999
32GB Wifi + 3G = R6,999
64GB Wifi + 3G = R7,999
It means you can pay an extra 60% (or any other percentage you choose) of the price to get yours sooner. So if you choose the base model at 4699, and are specify that you are willing to pay 60% more to get it sooner, you will pay 7519. alternatively you can just chose to pay the lowest price and wait it out. Thats how I understood it.That's from the Have2Have site. What the hell does the "+ 60%" part mean? Way to confuse people by hiding hidden costs?

Its the midpoint between a netbook and a phoneR6K for a ****ing tablet. You have to be seriously loaded to justify buying one of these devices, this goes for the Samsung, Motorola etc. tablets as well. Seriously people, how does it feel to get ****ed so deep in the ass?
I mean, for R6K I can get a i5 Notebook with 4GB memory from a shop, not even online or something. Yes I know, tablets are "different"... I prefer the words "crippled" or "bloated cellphone".
I'm definitely missing something here since tablets are obviously the new thing to have. I played around with a friends iPad and couldn't help wondering the whole time what I'd actually use it for... apart from it just being a cool toy.
