    Hi,

    With UK pre-orders set for Monday 10th May (about time) I was wondering at what time US buyers were able to place pre-orders at the time of the original US iPad launch? I'm assuming that at 1 minute past midnight it did not suddenly appear on the Apple website? ( I realize that the US covers several time zones). Also, with the presumably huge number of people placing pre-orders on the same day, how did the website cope?

    Cheers, Greg

    Yes, but it feels good, when you imagine to be amongst the first who preordered their's.
