OK, so I cant wait any longer for the iPad to arrive from Apple (16gb wifi on order, showing as next Thursday for delivery).
There nearest Apple Store (an hour away) is out of stock. Ive tried local PC Worlds, none have the 16gb wifi in. Just out of boredom, I tried 32gb wifi, and voila, the Sheffield store has some in. Now, my wife and I are going to Sheffield on Friday after work because the Meadowhall cinema is showing all three Twilight movies - we are both fans (I know, I know. Im a 31 year old guy and I like Twilight. Sue me).
Now my problem is that PC Worlds website will only let you reserve an item until the close of business on the following day. So I rang and asked if I could extend this until Friday pm. No dice. The helpful guy on the other end told me to "reserve one now, which will hold it until tomorrow at 8pm, when the store closes. You can then re-reserve it just after 8pm for friday". Sweet!
So I have taken his advice - but as a backup, I have not cancelled my Apple Store order until I know for sure that I can reserve one tomorrow, for collection on Friday
Now to break it to my wife that I am going for the 32gb instead of 16gb.
Wish me luck!
