    Short version of story: Bought an iPad 2 16GB WiFi refurb from the Apple Store. Couldn't get it to work. After set-up and sync it would run for 1 - 5 minutes (a couple of time for an hour or more) and then shut down and reboot. Took it to an Apple Store. Returned it and bought a new iPad 16GB WiFi and it worked great. Decided I needed more storage and returned it to get a 32GB WiFi. Apple Store didn't have a black one only white ones. Returned home and ordered one from a local Apple reseller. Today I learned that the black ones (32GB) are backordered for two weeks. (This includes the Apple Store.) Sigh.

    :(

    Kinda looks that way, doesn't it. Oh well, rant over, and on with my life.

    Not much help but it will be worth the wait and I agree that 16gb isn't enough for most of us anymore. I looked tonight and I have 8gb in apps, 3gb in photos, 2.5gb in music, 11.5 in videos, etc... It goes quick!

    What is attractive about white iPads? My niece has a white iPad, a white iPhone, a black car. I have a black iPad, a black iPhone, and a black car. She likes the contrast and I like the integration. To each their own. I don't mean to hijack your thread, I too would wait for a black iPad.

    That's what I'm doing. Looking at the 64GB black WiFi now as there may be a better chance of getting that one. Rounding up the extra dough.

    I have a white iPad, white iPod touch and a black car, am I confused lol? I thought the contrast against my photos was better and I don't play too many movies. To be honest it's hiding in a case now so don't see much of it anyway...


    I've got about 10gb of apps, so getting a bigger iPad is definitely a best bet.

    Hard to believe, but people have endured worse.

    Look at it this way, David. You're living in the most prosperous country on Earth. You have food to eat, and you're not dying from TB or malnutrition. You're not a prisoner rotting in a cell. You have all your limbs. Your dog probably loves you. And it's a beautiful day here in Virginia.

    Glass at least half-full.
