    Word on the street is that no retailers other then Apple Stores have received iPads this week. Can anyone confirm or deny this? It would be helpful as to where I focus my time in hunting ;)

    The Target store where I live got a shipment of 32 gig wifi in black on Monday (I purchased two). They also got a shipment of 64 gig wifi in white today. As you could imagine, they sold out within an hour. Keep checking target mate.

    The Target store I work at got one white 64GB wifi model in this morning. And it's still there(mainly because the people working this morning couldn't locate it). But when I got there to close we got the DPCI and found it right away, so I don't know how they couldn't but oh well. Then I sold a 32GB iPad 1, the guy didn't want the upgrades.

    You can use this page to see when they get more stock. I hope posting links isn't against the rules, I'm using the iPad app and haven't read the forum rules yet. Anyway, you basically click on the link to the type of iPad you're looking for and type in your zip and it shows what store nearest you has it in stock. To answer your question they only seem to get 5 per delivery.

    I am glad it is working for some people. I called the "available" and "limited availability" targets and and they told me that they had none. Oh well.

    If it says available and the Target is near you go anyway. You'll be surprised that when they go to the back they'll find the stock they said they didn't have. Sometimes it may be an employee hiding it in the back to buy later or something. Also, I'm hearing that apple stores are getting new stock daily but you have to wait in line early in the morning (4-4:39) and you still may not get one.

    I purchased 2 of them on Monday from Target (32 gig black wifi) but my wife wants the white one. I'm most likely going to sell the one I got for her since it's still unopened and make a few bucks for my time. I hope you guys are able to find the stock you're looking for or pm me for interested in buying. Good luck everyone.

    To everyone that's asking me since I can't reply via inbox. I purchased 2, one for me and one for my wife. I told her I was getting the 16 gig but I was only able to grab the 32s. Needless to say she's pretty ripped so I told her that I could sell the other one to offset my cost. Having said all that, I'm looking for $800.

    I hope you guys know I'm not trying to con anyone and have posted the link I used to get mine. This is for someone who (a) wants an iPad ASAP and (b) would rather pay a premium and not have to bother waiting in lines or deal with the hassles of going from Target to Target trying to buy the ones they sell before someone else beats you to it. Either way, good luck to everyone in finding their iPads.

    What do you suppose "Limited Availability" means?
