If you see one buy it is my advice. Still in very short supply!!!

Thanks.. i did read that you should ring heathrow before leaving on the day to reserve one... dunno if it's worth the risk of trying to get one at the Malaysian airport though?

As I said if you see one get it because if you wait to check prices elsewhere and don't end up finding one you may be disappointed on your way back. Took me ages to track down someone with stock for mine. Found it on John Lewis about 1 in the morning, said they had 10+ in stock so I ordered, when I woke up about 9 the following day and checked they were sold out!! Got mine tho, I'm posting this on it :)

The problem with any Grey Imports (outside UK / Europe) is that the manufacturers don't normally cover international warranties, so if the product becomes defective or is damaged you'll have to pay for a repair. It might be advisable to research the product or contact Apple's Customer Service to check if you are covered or warranties are transferrable if anything goes wrong. Also their customer service department or website may have a list of offiicial stockist of the IPad2 in Malaysia.

Apples 12 month warranty/guarantee on portable devices is "International".

Basically you can buy anywhere and get repaired wherever you happen to be - so don't worry about where you buy it......

try it abroad. at the very least you get to play with it and get it slightly cheaper

if not then come back and look for a deal :P

btw international warranty though ipads rarely do break unless you drop them

i guess the only real problem people have is 'bleeding' but as long as you check this before you purchase I agree that not much can go wrong. I'm looking for purchase this for my mum in Brisbane so it will have to be here or KL.
