The weird timing of that Apple sale (2am start) made me wonder if it's connected to the Aus site, and clearly it is with their sale starting at midnight. Also saw the iPad prices there, which make for damn interesting reading. Price of 64GB 4G iPad Air: NZ $1249; AU $949. With the Aus currency having fallen so much over the past year against the NZ$, this $949 AU converts across at not much over NZ $1050. Buying an iPad in Aus may be the easiest method to get a good "discount".
