Apple price analysis: How does Amazon Australia shape up?

Can Amazon undercut Apple's highest-priced notebooks and tablets? Here's what you'll pay at Amazon and other major Australian retailers.

Apple's notoriously pricey products only ever see their prices go down when they're superseded by a newer model and even then, it's never a drastic price drop. However, now that Amazon has arrived down under, the harbinger of good deals, is there hope for cheaper Apple products yet? We've compared pricing for iPad, iPhone and more from Amazon and some of Australia's leading retailers to find out whether Amazon Australia is here to slay.

For available models of iPad, Amazon Australia almost always the cheapest price (if only by a fraction).

However, for Apple's arguably overpriced stylus, the Apple Pencil, punters will pay 12% extra through Amazon Australia at the time of publishing. That's not all: Apple's wireless Air Pods will currently cost you 47% more through Amazon Australia. Normally retailing for $197 via Australian retailers like The Good Guys and Harvey Norman, Apple AirPods will set you back $289.99.

How does Amazon Australia shape up? Well that clearly depends on the product you're shopping for. If it's an iPad, then Amazon Australia should be your first destination. Accessories like Apple Pencil or AirPods? Steer clear.
