    depends on where you are at. -shrug- most people should have figured this would happen.

    One Best Buy I stopped at (Loganville, GA) had NO 3G models.

    Several folks in line with me at the Best Buy in Athens, GA said they checked with several Walmarts and they all only had 5 in stock and no 3G models.

    I'm glad I ordered online, that's kind of what happened to me when I bought the 1st gen Ipad. I might have to wait a little but, got exactly what I wanted this time.

    It did happen to me. I wanted 64gb wi-fi, but they were gone by the time I got to the front of the line. I was 119th in line at the Apple Store. I either would have had to downgrade to 32gb, or get the 3g, and I had to decide quickly, so I got the 64gb 3g. Not the end of the world, but I wasn't planning to spend the extra $130.

    I talked with an AT&T person here in southwest Ohio and there was a stock issue and they did not receive any iPads at any of the local stores. Verizon Wireless informed me that they received very few iPads - they only had one 64GB 3G in white. Not sure what the Apple Store had. I ordered my 64GB 3G online this morning.

    The Apple Store I went to in Boston had hundreds, all varieties and carriers. I traded an hour and a half in line to get the ipad2, in the exact version I wanted, weeks before waiting for an online purchase. It was clear to me that Apple would keep the bulk of inventory for their own stores.

    The ipad2 is a nice update over the original and worth the wait that many will endure.

    I was at both stores. Where were you in line at the Athens store? I was second in line.

    I think that was me. That happened becuase I assumed that I would "set up" the provider once home-- there was nothing in the store to indicate that it was verizon. Just a tiny line of text on the box.

    Though I'm now hearing that Verizon might be better anyway. (They are horrible home internet providers, but the people with the mobile service seem to like it...) So, I'm quite happy.

    I've never bought an item on the first day before, but this was a lot of fun!

    It's silly, but even waiting in line was fun since everyone was chatting and having a good time.

    (except for this one idiot who tried to cut in the line)
