Patrizia: I agree with you. I happened to be in Chicago on March 8 and stopped in an Apple store to pre-order the iPad. The guy there told me I can to call Apple. When I did, the salesperson said they would TRY to deliver this to my house on March 16, but that if I pre-ordered it to a STORE, I would be guaranteed to get it. So, as much as I hate this 280 mile drive tomorrow, and the lines, I got spooked out of home delivery!
