Whats the difference?
I am looking to buy an iPAD 2. I saw one, brand new, on Amazon with the part number MC775LL/A and the one on the Apple web site has the part number of MC959LL/A. Are these the same iPADs? I am thinking it has to do to the date of manufacture. Both are black 64 GB,3G WIFI with 3G ATT.

Not sure but if they both are iPad's 2's same size and both 3 G then they are the same. Likely the different model number is for different distributors or like you said date of manufacturing.
I know best buy and future shop will often have different model numbers on the exact same items, making it hard to price match when you find a better deal at one or the other store.....not that I think that has anything to do with this, just gives you an idea that model numbers are not necessarily picked by the manufacturer but the store that is distributing them.

Over the last couple of days I think I have figured what the difference is. Both iPAD 2s, MC775LL/A and MC959LL/A, are essentially the same. The only difference is that the MC775LL/A is sold by dealers outside of Apple, Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon. The iPAD2 with the PN MC959LL/A is sold by Apple directly.
On Amazon I did a search for the MC959LL/A and it took me to the Apple online store.
Again thanks for all the comments.
