I returned an iPad 2 at an Apple store after ordering online. They issued me a gift card, which I then applied to another online order, for an iPad 2 with more GBs. I called before I went to the store and was told I could return it there. I got to the store and an Apple guy said I had to send it back. I told him I'd called ahead, so he checked with a manager. Turns out he was wrong.
I could've used my gift card in the store, too. I went there on the off chance that they had an iPad on hand to exchange.
My online order is supposed to take two more weeks, for a total of four weeks. Arrival is set for May 16. I got one at Best Buy last week, though, after putting myself on a waiting list with a $100 gift card. They called me when it arrived in the morning and held it till my husband was able to pick it up after work. I haven't decided whether to cancel my online order. I might sell it to someone I know at cost.

I mean the production process and business model. As I stated in my original post, except for launches because they do not know just how well a launch will go, how many they will sell and there was nothing to base an educated guess on.Originally Posted by jmorton10
I ordered mine on April 7th and it arrived this past Friday on the 28th. So that was exactly 3 weeks. It was hard waiting that long. I tried every apple store around the city with no luck what so ever.
I can probably wait another week but am crossing my fingers that by Tuesday I will get an updated shipping date and hopefully I can get it by Saturday the 7th instead of Wednesday the 11th which is when apple says it will be delivered...
Then again it would really suck if they backdate my order!!!
