iPad 3 South African prices compared

Apple’s latest iPad (aka iPad 3) was launched on Friday 16 March in the United States and 11 other countries globally. It is currently unclear when the iPad 3 will officially be launched in South Africa, but a few retailers are already selling the device locally through direct imports.

South African consumers must be prepared to pay a premium for the iPad 3, unless they import it directly themselves.

The Notebook Company announced on Tuesday (20 March) that they have stock of the new iPad, with prices starting at R7,950 for the 16GB Wi-Fi and 4G model.

“We will endeavour to keep the prices as low as possible, but obviously we are paying a premium to secure stock. End users who want the iPad 3, and who are willing to pay a little bit extra, are now in a position to do so,” said The Notebook Company MD Christopher Riley.

Online retailers Wantitall and Have2Have also offer the iPad 3, starting at R6,413 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model.

The following table provides an overview of iPad 3 prices in South Africa.
