    I was traveling Friday on business in Las Vegas. I was able to get away and to the Best Buy just off the strip by 2:30. Waited until just after 5:00 when they started escorting one at a time into the store and taking a personal order then directing you to the customer service registers. Estimate ~ 100 people in line. I think there were some who were disappointed.
    I was 16th in line, and in talking to everyone around me, most wanted the 64G wifi in black. That was what I got as well. I didn't meet too many who wanted 3G.
    Played with it on the overnight flight to Chicago. I love this thing!:D

    Not first this year...

    I made 116th (of about 500) in line at San Franciscos Apple store this year, which was cool, made some friends in line from Malaysia and Japan.
    It was well worth the wait, got my black 16gb wifi!

    1st post!

    Got mine from a local MacLife store. They sold out immediately but I put my name on their reserve list and paid $100 down... Got the call yesterday that their 2nd shipment came in and I am now the proud owner of a 32GB WiFi model!

    The only thing that sucks so far is that I'm not happy with the Apple SmartCover. I really want the Targus VuScape case but it's not available quite yet.

    I woke up about 8:30 missing the first shipment . So I was pissed because I'm usual at the store by 8. So at 10 am ,I decided to just go anyway and to my luck they received another shipment but of Verzion versions only which was cool. So I copped a white 16 gig.

    My wife and I were 6 and 7 in line at our local Best Buy on launch day. I have the white and she has the black with pink Smart Cover. We both love our Ipad 2's. We hardly put them down. No complaints from either of us. Plus my wife (a few days ago) got herself a Mac Book Pro. Also no complaints.

    I got my very first Ipad (the 2nd gen. of course) on March 11th/release day at the storied San Francisco Apple Store. I work downtown and walked by on my lunch hour to gage the line -- it was a block long. At 5:30pm after work the line stretched another long city block to the cable car line on Powell St. I figured I didn't have a chance but just for ducks hung out in a few of my favorite watering holes nearby (Lefty O'Doul's, the Daily Grill, the Gold Dust Lounge), watched a basketball game, made a few friends and got a slice, then sauntered a couple of blocks back to the Apple Store where there were now NO LINES and at 9:19pm! YAY!!!

    I asked for a 64GB WiFi model and they said they'd "see," but lo and behold they happily came out a minute or two later and presented me with the golden (OK, white) box. It appears most people bought 16GB models so they had a few 64GBs left! The actual purchasing transaction took all of a minute or so with their hand-held machines. After that they took me upstairs and gave me a 30-minute or so personal tutorial and setup with two other buyers - very nice.

    I've had it for nine days now and have to admit I have rarely put this thing down. I'm totally gobsmacked at all it can do and does. I've been a dyed-in-the-wool IBM PC/Microsoft guy for 25 years and have been mesmerized by the intuitive operating system. The thing is just chock-a-block with fun and character and may very well be my favorite purchase of just about anything, ever (I'm in my 50s). What technology in this little mini-clipboard package. It is nothing less than amazing -- WOW!

    In fact, it's SO good and I've been talking SO much about it to an ex of mine that I may just buy her one (er, the 16GB, OK!?) just because I don't want her to miss out on the experience. And what an experience it is!!!:)
