Stuff Reader Panel – How much would you pay for the Apple Tablet?

We've asked you what you're expecting and wanting from the Apple event on Wednesday, and now we've been picking your brains for how much you'd be prepared for the Apple Tablet, should it appear in a few days.

We asked you how much you'd be prepared to pay if the Tablet turned out to be just a blown up iPhone – and it seems most of you wouldn't even be happy paying the price of a 32GB iPhone 3G S (£549).

In fact the majority of you are looking for a price around the £500 mark in order to tempt your hand, although most of you seem to doubt this will be the case.

The overall opinion seems to be that a £500 price tag would cause mass consumer appeal, but that it is more likely to be around the £750 mark – with one reader putting this down to the fact that Apple is "overpriced".

Interestingly, it seems that Stuff readers are prepared to pay more than the rest of the UK, with a survey of 3,000 people carried out by website VoucherCodes.co.uk showing that 46% wouldn't spend anymore than £250 on the Apple Tablet. The words "dream on" spring to mind...

What do you think – how much would you pay for it? Let us know below.

Make sure you read our live blog from the Apple launch from 5pm on 27 January.
