The much-anticipated iPad 2 has reached Malaysian shores. Predictably, throngs of Apple addicts and techno-junkies swarmed shopping malls around the country to get one. We have images of the iPad 2 buying rush at the Mid Valley Megamall in Kuala Lumpur.
In Britain, thousands waited and lined up to see the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. In Malaysia, thousands waited and lined up to ‘wed’ Apple’s latest iteration of the iPad.
On sale since Friday (29th April 2011), the iPad 2 drew an impressive crowd of buyers at the Mid Valley Megamall’s outlet of Machines. On Friday, buyers were so numerous that the queue stretched across an entire ring/section of the mall’s Centre Court. And this was at about 11.20am in the morning. (Not-so-random thought: Don’t these people have to work?)

And oh, in case you were wondering, here are the prices for the various iPad 2 models (according to the Machines pamphlet):
iPad 2 with Wi-Fi
16GB – RM1,499
32GB – RM1,799
64GB – RM2,099
iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G

One more thing: If you’re planning to get one, don’t go to the Gardens outlet of Machines. As of Friday, 29th April 2011, that outlet doesn’t have stock for the iPad 2. Head to the Mid Valley outlet of Machines instead. Don’t walk to the Gardens outlet only to be disappointed.
