    Has the craziness stopped re peeps lining up to purchase?

    Are they easily available in the stores now or is there a shortage?

    I'm not sure. I picked up 2 16GBs on Tuesday for my grandkids. I had gone to Best Buy to get a cover for mine, and when the guy told me they still had a few 16's left, I just couldn't help myself.

    All they had were the 16GB, in black. Not sure how many they started with, or how many were left.

    I picked mine up at the florida orange mall. They had no shortage of verizon models in all versions and this was on the day after they were released. The guy said they get shipments everyday around lunchtime but there is no guarantee on the trucks what iPads they get.

    I think if your not too picky about getting it from an apple store a best buy or a walmart should have some in.

    Good luck

    I was at the Apple store yesterday, to buy a cable, and he said every day they open an hour early, and every day there are a bunch of people that have been lining up for about 2hours. The run out as soon as they open everyday.

    So in Florida, things are slowing down.
    I wonder what it is like in Buffalo, New York?

    It seemed slow there in general. I waited only 20 minutes and the queue had only ten people in it. All weekend i saw people were happily buying ipad2s from walmarts and bestbuys (i was doing a lot of shopping that weekend lol) with no delay or dissapointment. This is orlando area fyi in case anyone is round there.

    I got mine Wednesday this week and had to wait 3 hours but they got a lot in. Im sure they were all sold out by 10am anyway. From what i hear its lines everyday and they sell quick. I also live where there is only 1 apple store for a good distance.

    Here in Minnesota there still sold out every where. The Apple store at the Mall of America gets some in every day, but I refuse to wait in line to give Apple my money. Arg!

    Lots of big retailers like BB and WM are only getting 16gb's. I had a false alarm yesterday. Someone I know works at WM, and she happened to come to my job. She was like I was wondering if I would see you because we got some iPad 2's in (4). I was freaking out. [I want the white 64 wifi.] She called in and asked what they had, and she found out that all of them were 16gb black. She said they are getting more in soon, but they'll probably be white 16's!
