Apple drops 1st-Gen iPad prices by Php4,000

As the Philippine Apple Store comes back online to accommodate news of the iPad 2, they’ve also slashed the retail prices of the old iPads by Php4,000 (across the board).



Here’s the screen shot of the new prices of the 1st-gen iPads.

The new prices are exactly Php4,000 cheaper. This will allow some price difference with the introduction of the iPad 2. The

Apple is hoping people will keep on buying the old iPads despite the new announcements. Not sure though if the Php4,000 difference will convince buyers.

  2. The original iPad was already well-priced at 24k. It’s quite a deal at the new 20k tag. If you don’t mind paying the original price (only 4k more), you get an iPad that’s much faster, thinner, and has cameras. This is a good deal eitherway. I’m getting one for my nanay. Much better than a full-blown PC.

  4. Di ba Globe lang ang may handle ng Apple products sa Pinas, magkano kaya yung may plan kasi recently may reklamo yung isang congressman na nagchacharge ang Globe excessively.

  5. Yan na nga ba sinasabi ko eh. Bababa talaga price nyan kasi naluma. At least meron nang pag pipilian ang consumer kung bibili ng samsung Tab wifi na 25K or Ipad wifi na 20K.

    I’m getting the old iPad. I mean hey, I’ll just be using it for viewing files and cases for school. With that in mind, it’s a steal (literally, I’ll steal one off the shelves of PMC. LOL).

    Hope someone would post if Power Mac Center already cut the prices off theirs(and if it’s available 0% 12 months). TIA!

    Yes, PowerMac also dropped their prices by P4k across all iPad variants. They will cut another 5% off the new prices for cash buyers.

    I knew that already. :)

    I originally asked if Power Mac Center already cut the prices off of their iPads so that I can avail of it via installment (which I can’t get if I purchase online. I can apply for it though by calling my creditor, but that would still be subject for approval. >_<)

    Guess I'd just have to wait and see then.

    iBook Store at SM-Clark, apparently an Apple Authorized Reseller as seen from a sign on their glass display wall…

    the iPad 16gig wi-fi only model sells for a whooping P26,000! I think these guys are living under a rock! Beat that Villman, hehehe

    Warn your friends!
