    I'd assume that while doing your online order to set the Billing Address to your address and the Shipping Address to your brother's in NC.

    That should work, but don't take my word on it.

    Good luck!

    Ordered mine the same day and mine says the same delivery date but I've heard that once it actually ships, it sometimes comes before the estimated delivery date, so thats what I'm hoping will happen... I've already got tons of nice, converted, blu-ray HD 1024x768 resolution videos ready to put on my iPad so they're going to play in fullscreen... I can't wait to see how it looks.

    Have you ever ordered anything online and had it shipped to an address that was different from your billing one?

    I ordered my ipad through my parents apple account as they wanted to get me a graduation present. So I used their billing information and then put in my shipping info. Alternatively you can give your brother your CC number and get him to put it through on his account. I've done that before for my brother when using my apple account.

    Yeah I think he means if he orders it from the European apple store and then wants it shipped to the states will it work. I haven't heard of anyone else doing this not to say it wouldn't work I just don't know of anyone that's done it.

    There is another option here, wait until you return from America and buy it then.
