    You have a better chance of acquiring one early by ordering it online.

    I couldn't go through that stress again I'm afraid.

    I purchased my first iPad, the ipad2, last year. I actually ordered within thirty mins of pre-ordering opening.
    After checking progress on shipment and speaking with Apple almost every other day, it eventually arrived in the post 2 month later.

    So no, I couldn't go through all that again.

    I'm hoping for this... yet my order still says processing and still has not shipped like some people are seeing.


    Yet with the shipping to home you never no.
    You could get it early like some were getting the iPhone a day early last time, or it could come at the end of the day on the 16th (after the people in line already have theirs from the apple store).


    I won't have to wait in line at the apple store, but I will still have to wait at home for the delivery guy (better place to wait) since it requires signature.

    Also with the pre-Order I already know I'm getting one and don't have to wait out the line just to see if they have any left by the time they get to me.

    I ordered mine within the first 40 or so minutes of the store reopening. I finally got my FedEx tracking number at 2:44 pm CST today. I believe all the engraved ones went out first so they could ship them to the US for engraving and then move them back into the staging areas. Now I think they are doing non-egraved units.

    This is my first time ordering an iPad so hopefully I will receive it on time. I ordered March 7th after 5pm and received email confirmation March 8th when they started processing it. I just got an email today March 9th that they shipped it with tracking info. According to the tracking, everything is on schedule and its estimated to arrive March 16th by end of day here in WA state. I did order with free engraving.

    Not positive but I think the engraving is done at the factory. I ordered my iPad 2 engraved from
    Apple and it shipped from China to my home with no stops in between other than FedEx (or UPS) facilities.

    Engraving is done at the factory. There is generally no difference in the ship date between engraved and plain devices when they are shipped direct from the factory - which includes virtually all online orders.

    Hey folks it's good to be back. I've been busy with my Asus Transformer Prime but just ordered the new ipad and should have it Friday! I've been on the Android side of the fence for almost a year now even though I just sold my iPad 2 this past Saturday. I'm hoping that I'll like this new tablet more than the Prime and with the new display it may sure happen.
