NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) – If you’re looking for a deal on the iPad 2, and just can’t wait for Apple to formally announce the next one, you can grab a new 16-gigabyte model for about $449.99 at Best Buy. The device usually retails for $499.99. The 32-gigabyte model has also been discounted by $50.

Speculation on an iPad 3 has been heating up in recent months, and the iPad 2 price drop by Best Buy and some other retailers has only added fuel to the fire. It’s widely accepted that Apple products don’t go on sale often, so a price drop seems like a blatant hint that the iPad 3 is on its way, perhaps sooner than later.

    Um, hello…it’s been stated as a fact that Apple is announcing the iPad 3 on March 7th. Do you read the news?

    I’m waiting for Apple to come out with a dual-core 10.1″ Mini Notebook. This size works well for my disabled hubby, and my 10.1″ Toshiba Notebook died a yr ago from some virus from Facebook (Norton 360 was supposedly protecting it, too).

    So, I’d like the sturdier Apple product, but the other size notebooks are too large and awkward for my hubby to easily handle.

    I just keep waiting patiently…
