I don't agree with you at all. The store probably doesn't even know when the latest and greatest is coming. They are there to sell you what you ask for. It is up to you to do your research. You messed up but now you are blaming the store and using inflammatory statements such as "Apple ripped me off". Sorry buddy but nope ... they didn't rip you off at all. You asked for an iPad 2, right? You got it, right? Case closed.
