MacMall was supposed to call me when they got in, but I never got the call by 4pm. So I left work early and headed over to MacMall. Arrived at 4:10pm, and the delivery truck still hadn't arrived. They said if they don't arrive today, it'll either be tomorrow (Sat) or Mon. But if you were on the list (I was), then they'd call me as soon as they arrived.
So I decided I'd head over to my local Best Buy, and wait in line - I was #103 in line when I arrived at 4:20pm. I figured if I got the call from MacMall while I was in line, I'd just head back over there - I like those guys, but the call never came in. So while I waited in the Best Buy line, I was offered an application for a Best Buy card with no interest (same as cash) for 18 months. Why not I figured. And it was approved - sweet!
So then came time to tell the guy what iPad I wanted - I told him a black/64GB/AT&T 3G model. He says sorry, all sold out of those. *** - already?! So I opted for the black/32GB/AT&T 3G model - which those were almost gone already, but I got one. And at the same time I also picked up the Apple Bluetooth keyboard and a gray polyurethane Smart Cover. They had a polyurethane and leather smart cover open and out, so people could feel the difference between them. I actually liked the feel of the polyurethane cover better! Good, the saved money over the leather version went towards the keyboard.
I end up walking out of Best Buy with my stuff at 6:15pm - not too bad really. Not it's time to setup and play. Being my first Apple device it may take a little while, but I'm a tech geek so no issues. And that's my story...
