    I am buying my Ipad2 at Best buy because you can get it interest free for 18 months by getting their credit card. That comes to about 30 bucks a month (tax included)! You can't go wrong with that.

    Target would be my next best choice, if you have cash, because they will give you a 5% cash-back if you use their credit card. So you would buy the Ipad2 with their credit card then pay it off at the end of the month.

    The Apple store gives you free engraving and free shipping. But, if you engrave it, it will kill the resale value. Free shipping is great if you live in farm country.

    Online would be good because you will save on tax.

    Any other ideas?

    You'll only save on Tax if there is no Apple store in your state.

    Best Buy. 18 months no interest (which I'll be paying off in two months) and rewards points. I use them to get free Blu-Ray movies. :)

    Probably an apple store--just because i read an article saying that there will probably more of the white models sold there (as opposed to bestbuy or walmart)

    It really doesn't matter much where you get it, as long as you get the item you want

    Best Buy will be my last option....as always. Our Best Buy has a rating of 1.4 out of 5, and there's a reason for that. Lordie how I miss Circuit City.

    I'm planning on ordering online from Apple. I have to work Friday and don't feel like dealing with lines, crowds and limited stock anyway.

    I'll set my alarm and get up and order at 3:01am EST tomorrow and be done with it.

    I've never seen Best Buy do in store pick up as an option for any launch item like a game console or iPad etc., so I'd be very surprised if they did this time as well.

    You'll just have to try your luck there just like at Apple or Target etc.

    I don't like the idea of opening a credit card for a discount/interest free time periods. I can get a discount if I order it online from Apple and just wait for it to arrive. We have 5 (?) Apple stores within a 30-40 mile radius, the closest one being about 10 miles away beyond the countless Targets and Best Buys. I'm contemplating going shopping Saturday afternoon to see if I can find the model I want or if I'll just order it early friday morning.

    You it would jus suck to be able to order at 3am est (in my case) and order exactly what I want rather than waiting 14 hours later to be in lines like it's black Friday or something! Lol

    What about WalMart? I called my Apple store and was told that WalMart will have them also. I should probably call my local Walmart to confirm that. My nearest Apple store is about 35 minutes away and in a really busy traffic area. Won't be any fun driving through there at 5:00!

    Yeah, I'll probably order online also. I sold my Ipad on Ebay and, am missing it already but, it's better for me to order online. I really wanted to get it at a store on launch day but, the more I think about it, I don't want to deal with the crowds.
