    Is anyone else having problems actually getting an iPad added to their cart? I click on the model that I want, and a purple box shows around my choice, but nothing happens after that.

    So when you click on the model that you want, what is supposed to happen next? is it supposed to automatically advance to the next screen or is there something else I have to click on?

    When you click on the model off to the right there its a summary screen that will show the price and a BUY button. I found that it took ten minutes from choosing the model until that BUY button appeared. Then I was afraid to choose a Smartcover because the next (accessories) page loaded very poorly as if the style sheet did not load. But the order went through and I got my confirmation email. Yay!

    I was having an extreme lag time trying to pre-order my iPad 3. Did the Google Chrome suggestion work for anyone else?

    Hi Saphire-I just went onto the Apple store myself on the US side and it took a very long time to load. I wanted to see if that would help you. I am not sure how it would work if you were to order from a US store vs. a UK store. All I can say is just have patience-which I know you have had these last couple of hours!

    Good luck. :)

    OK I got it. Apparently you just have to click and wait.

    This is getting frustrating now I thought I had ordered the 64gb but when I went to checkout it switched to the US site so wouldn't allow me to pay.

    According to Twitter, most - possibly all - European Apple stores are down and have been all evening apart from a very brief window before 8pm.

    Yes.

    There hasn't been a single iPad or iPhone launch that didn't have this happen for the first 6 weeks.
