    I will be going to NY on friday(25th) and leaving on monday evening(28th). I was wandering if the stock shortages of ipads are still bad( im after a 3G 64GB)
    and is it true you can no longer go into an apple store and just buy one?
    If anyone had any idea of which stores held them, that would be greatly appreciated

    I'm in the UK and apparently you need to go in store to reserve one.

    I called 3 NYC stores and they all told me the same thing.

    If you know someone who can go in and reserve one for you, you might just be able to get one by the time you leave.

    My brother in law put his name down and it took 1 week.

    Other people are saying that best buy and a couple of other Apple resellers have stock though...

    Good luck and enjoy!

    I walked into Best Buy and bought one last Friday. Not in NY though.

    Just buy in the UK. It saves less than 50 quid to buy in the states and is assuming you don't declare it to customs. Reason: sales tax is not included in the list price in the US.
