    Not me. I got to the point of choosing the model I wanted and logging in and then pressing confirm, only to be presented with a 'there are no pick ups available at this store' or something. Infuriating.

    I managed to get the reserve last night but it was slow and timing out within 5 seconds but finally managed to get it done.

    Collected my iPad this morning and when I was waiting someone had problems; the site reserved for him but it wasn't on Apple's System, So they were trying to sort him out. To me it seemed that he was lieing to get one without reserving.

    My evening ended last night with me rocking back and forth and emitting these high pitched squealing noises. It's not good for my health, all this.

    Will I give it another go tonight? Yes, of course I will, because I'm an idiot.

    have you guys not thought about just popping in to your stores? surely they must have some set aside for people popping in in person?
    goodluck anyway

    i managed to get mine exchanged for a white one. there's still a very small hair scratch on it but that's just me being OCD - i am keeping this one.

    i have not set brightness to full to see if the lights bleed as i am sure there will be some bleeding but i wont do it as i am happy with this

    I just called the Covent garden store and the guy I spoke to said the only way you can currently get an iPad instore is to reserve it online the night before. They are not doing any walk-in sales.

    He asked me if I'd tried the online reservation system, and I just sarted rocking back and forth again, emitting high pitched squeals.

    He put the phone down.

    haha. i think they are not meant to say anything on the phone tho.
    coz before i drove to meadowhall apple to return mine, i called them up to make sure they will have one to exchange as i told them i didnt want to drive 60miles for nothing and theres no way i am driving back but they said they didnt have stock.
    i went anyway for my appointment and it turned out that they had one for me to take home.
    so maybe it just depends on who you speak to... but goodluck! mine is back in the box - i really have no real use for it apart from web surfing :rolleyes:
