I've been interested in obtaining an iPad recently. Virtually every store is sold out. Undoubtedly, they're flying off the shelves because of the influx of people working from home, among other reasons.
I already have an android tablet which works OK, but being a previous iPad owner I feel I'd prefer that device instead as a spare computer since my current laptop is getting old, plus I think the iPad is a quality product albeit being somewhat pricey.. I know I could probably order one from Amazon, but I've always preferred dealing with brick and mortar businesses, if possible. Anyhow, no big deal at this time. Just thought I'd squawk a little.

Most brands/types of tablets are in short supply right now. It has less to do with people working from home (who tend to do that on a laptop) than with people trying to equip their elderly parents and grandparents to do video chats while isolated in their retirement communities or nursing homes. We found an iPad for my 89 y.o. mother-in-law about the third week of April - but it wasn't easy.

Don't forget the huge curtailing of manufacturing in many regions that supply components used in products we buy. nay of the items showing up today were started being manufactured at the beginning of the year and just now can be assembled with all the parts. Some factories are working on orders from March let alone current demand.

This.

I can't count how many things I have wanted to order and needed by a specific time from Amazon only to find that it will be weeks before they are available. Supply chain is severely impacted by COVID, especially components from other countries.

Good points brought out by everybody, some which I hadn't considered. Note to JCpainter: The Best Buy store nearest me had one in stock, but not the model I wanted (too much $$).
