iPad 2 shipping times drop to just 3-5 business days across the range

It appears that Apple has finally got on top of the iPad 2 availability problems; as it is now quoting just 3-5 business days on every model of the iPad 2. This is the first time since its launch back in March that the availability has been quoted at under a week. The delivery times are mirrored in the UK store also.

If you are planning on picking up an iPad 2, now could be the time to do it. Of course you could be put off buying one now due to the constant rumors of an iPad 2 HD coming later this year. I am going to be really upset if these rumors do turn out to be true; after just buying an iPad 2!

Why upset ?? Aren't you happy with the iPad ??... If we start getting upset about new releases then we are all gonna need therapy..

No iPad 2 HD is coming out. Please let that rumor die. Like I said before the only things coming out are the next iPhone, iPods, and possibly apple tv. The iPad 2 launched already. No way apple will leave those who bought at launch in the dust in the same year.

It was just not like Apple to allow Windows to be installed on a mac.
It was just not like Apple to lower the prices on their computers.
It was just not like Apple to get in the mp3 player world
It was just not like Apple to get in the phone world...
See what I'm doing? You shouldn't question Apple. History has a way to repeet it self.

There won't be an iPad 2 HD or whatever people have been calling it. It's just not like apple to do something like that, it sounds really stange to me. Anyways we should be talking about what everybody really wants iPhone 5!!!!

Every now and then the new one comes...and we can't be waiting or upset on that.
Felt like having an iPad....bought it. I really enjoy this moment...:)

The best time to buy any product is when it's right for you. Forget release cycles and learn to be patient. If you want/need an iPad2 now, buy it. If an iPad2 HD comes out in a few months, and you want that, buy it next year. Or, at worst, sell the old one to offset much of the cost. The whole "gotta have the absolute latest thing right now" mentality is expensive and immature—unless you're a developer, etc., but then it's a business expense.

I bought mine on a whim at my local Apple store. They just had them in stock, no waiting or reserving. This was a few weeks back.
