    I was going to get one engraved but I thought it might delay delivery on the 16th and the web site was iffy enough. I just wanted to get my order in before the site crashed. I felt like Seinfield trying to buy soup from the "soup nazi":p

    The Apple store should show the new delivery date after you select engraving.

    *Lets see*

    I just verified that. Currently it will still deliver on the 16th.

    From the reports I saw earlier today, it looks like Apple is prepping the engraved iPads a bit earlier than non-engraved iPads. In other words, both would be delivered on March 16, but people are getting shipping notices already for the engraved iPads, but I haven't gotten one for my non-engraved iPad.

    My issue with engraving is whether or not it will affect resale value. Who wants an iPad that says "I love you, Pooky!" on the back?

    exactly why I was mad when I got my first gen ipad with engraving on it for christmas. I automatically put on a the otterbox case and if somebody wants to buy it hopefully they won't want to go through the hassle of taking off the ottterbox :(

    I thought the same thing, but my boyfriend had mine engraved, and I thought it was sweet. My concern now is, if I put it in a case will he think I don't like it?

    Oh, and I got my shipping notice, as well.

    I tracked my order - left China 10th arrived Sydney 13th (not a slow boat). Was hoping to receive it in South Australia on 16th, but now on the 15th tracking details say 'receiver requested new delivery date' (origin Shenzhen - not me) - obviously they do not want to deliver early or even on 16th. Is this because they would be delivered in Australia before America or Europe?

    Mine is still showing as Arrival in Anchorage,AK on 14th march at 10.14 PM. Don't know when will it hit the departure scan button and reach KY and from there to my place. It looks like a difficult task. Estimated delivery still shows Friday march 16th.
