    For those ordering from macwarehouse.co.uk Quidco offer 5% cashback!! Says "on all sales" so don't see why iPad wouldn't be inculded!!

    EDIT: Cashback is calculated from the price excluding VAT but still every little helps!!

    Glad people are making use of the site :)

    Did you opt for next day delivery? Did it say when your delivery would be if you just used the standard option?

    ordered a white 32gb. "29 in stock".

    I hope this place is just the best kept secret on the internet and not just awful inventory management. Their website does look a little 1999 :rolleyes:

    :edit: I paid the £10 for next day shipping.

    Just called them and they are actually owned by Dixons Plc. Currys and PC World are their sister company!:)

    Mmmm, tempting. Personally wouldn't order from a company that don't list their company address on their website though.

    so if they are owned by currys, which has no stock, does anyone believe the macwarehouse stock levels? or do we think they are trying to get our CC numbers?

    Despite saying I did't want an iPad 2 I've just ordered one from Mac Warehouse :rolleyes:

    If you look in the "Manage my orders" section they offer you an estimated shipping date - Mine's currently today's date. It'll be interesting to see if they stick to that.

    Noticed that you've said in your signiture that you sold your 32gb iPad. Mind me asking where and for how much ? I'm trying to guage whether it's worth getting an iPad 2 or not.

    I've just changed that sig now :)

    I was lucky as I eBay'd mine the week of the iPad 2 announcement. It went for £430ish in the end with the Apple case. I've gone for a 16GB this time around though.

    number 41.

    also i would not believe they are in stock.

    I tried putting 99999 in the basket for the wifi 16gb black, it says its in stock with a basket total of £1,543,692.33. If you put more than this then basket total is £-1,739,327.75.... i dont mind getting paid £-1,739,327.75 for 99999 ipads.

    Something is very off with there website.. I would avoid it.

    Why? They are owned by Dixons Plc and have been around for a very long time :confused:

    I've purchased from them before they were part of the Dixons group, with no problems. However, the ordering page now asks you to confirm that you're a business customer, ordering for business purposes. I assume everyone just said yes?! :)

    16GB WiFi + 3G.

    It briefly said the 3G's were in stock when I looked first thing, though they're all unavailable now I think. Only WiFi's seem to be listed as in stock now.

    They are a genuine company and they've traded for years. I remember buying from them when I first bought an external Motorola 56k modem in the 90's! They're part of PC World and DSGI in the same way Equanet and Micro Warehouse are - both of whom have pretty average websites :)

    Ok, so they are a Dixons/PC World site. That would put my mind at rest a bit. But, Currys, PC World, Dixons are all out of stock, so why would this company have any ? I agree, it doesn't sound right somehow.
