The model numbers above have been simplified - i.e., the first model above is -
MC769LL/A

NOTES -
1. I have added 1 penny to each price, because I HATE all the 99 cents bullspit.
2. All units have built-in Wi-Fi.
3. Black and white are the same price.

4. 16G memory is the base price.
5. 32G memory will cost you $100 more.
6. 64G memory will cost you $200 more.

7. Selecting an ATT wireless unit will cost you $30 more.
8. Selecting a Verizon wireless unit will cost you $30 more.
    Most models sold are non-3G, which surprises me - only $30 more!

9. There is no information coded into the part number - they have been selected at random, and cannot be relied upon to reveal any info, due to no planning ahead of time.

10. The order of presentation was taken from
Best Buy. I would have ordered them more logically. I can't link directly to the Best Buy iPads, because the URL is 8 billion characters long. I don't support that kind of cr@p.
11. The Apple store offers 18 models - (2 x 3 x 3) Color times Memory options times 3G options).

12. Relative sales volume for each model is estimated by the number of Best Buy reviews.
      Estimated ATT unit sales = 30 + 21 + 8 + 12 + 9 + 9 = 89
      Estimated Verizon unit sales = 15 + 17 + 16 + 9 + 12 + 22 = 91
      I expected Verizon to be much higher, due to the well-known ATT poor performance issues.
      If you buy the ATT model, good luck with connectability and signal strength.

13. I bought another one. Best Buy gave me the wrong one (ATT). I specified Verizon. I trusted them, didn't check it, and had a long drive back to the store. CHECK YOUR UNIT before you leave. Best Buy is not that savvy. Be sure when you go into Best Buy, that you have the APPLE MODEL # in hand. Verizon models are clearly marked "Verizon" on the box label. ATT models are not marked at all - just "3G".

It is now time FOR YOU to buy an iPad 2.
