    Finally decided to get a WiFi + 3G, 32GB model and guess what? No one has any . . . Tried the Apple Store and they laughed - checked Best Buy inventory and zip! Got on MR and everyone is talking about long delays in shipping. Couple hours later tried the BB sight again since I had settled in on an exact model and thought maybe I had not checked that one - again zip. Around lunch time I checked again BB, habit I guess, and BAM! - "in stock!" Drove 10 minutes and asked the guy who always gives me bad advice and he said, "We haven't gotten any and don't expect any for a while. Besides, I checked the inventory this morning and none showed up." I replied, "Evidently, they just came in so go back in the stock room and get me one." He checked again on the computer, which was slow and the screen kept sputtering and sure enough - "in stock!" He came back with 4 and I took mine home. Actually bought it for my wife and for trips, however, I think I'll keep this one and get her the basic model to keep track of our kids and their families on facebook.

    Congrats. I have a friend that did the same thing and was able to get one quickly too.

    I was in a quandary over to buy, or not to buy, already. If I had to order it I might not have done it. I was one of those that was not initially impressed with it, however, it's a functional little gizmo with a better form factor for many uses than my MBP. Overall, I'm very impressed. Of course, I didn't get to use it till this morning since my wife had it till bedtime.

    I think this is a similar scenario that a good portion of us will be seeing. You bring home one iPad, and soon enough you need to get at least another one so that you can actually use the one you bought in the first place. :)
