iPad 2s selling for silly money...
Seriously, if anyone actually sells these things for more than they cost, the buyer should be kicked in the nads. It's a fucking tablet!! You'll be able to buy it for normal retail cost in a month or two when everything gets back to normal. Not to mention there have been some problems with the initial production run.
I never buy ANY consumer electronics stuff right when it comes out. The times I have (Droid, Wii, iPod Video, POD XT) there's always been issues.

I'm like you, I typically don't like to get bleeding edge tech gadgets until they work out the bugs.
