    Hey everyone. I posted on MR a lot a few years back when I made the decision to buy a MBP. Now I am pretty set on buying an iPad and would like to purchase it at the place where I can get it the fastest... preferably online. Where is the best place to look? Macconnection? Apple? J&R? B&H? Would one model ship faster than another (less desire for one over another)?

    Thanks very much!

    If you can't find one local...
    I'd hunt a day or 2 first.

    B&H and Macconnections have been pretty consistent with their orders but it also depends on the which model you order. Stay AWAY from J&R since they have yet to fulfill most of their orders. Wifi models are selling the most I believe, particularly the 16GB and 32GB. Verizon models tend to be in stock more often at both of the above sites, suggesting that they are the least desirable since they use CDMA, unlike the GSM AT&T model.

    Also, try hunting one down at your local Target/BestBuy/Walmart though the inventory tracker below:

    Good Luck!

    I ordered from B&H on a tuesday and was playing on my iPad on Friday. I have no complaints. I wouldn't order from JR, they could never give me an eta.

    If you can reserve it online on the apple store and pick it up the next day! That's what I did :D

    I am looking for the 16GB Black WiFi model.

    Called Macmall - they said their next shipment isn't due until 4/30.

    Called B&H - they said no ETA on next shipment.

    Called Macconnections - they said next shipment due on 4/18. Free 2-day shipping to me. I ordered from them.
