As the iPad 2 launch was one week ago here in The Netherlands and the waiting time is now over 4 weeks, my MacBook was in repair because of a stuck HDD. I didn't want to buy it and wait a week to sync it with iTunes and all my apps. Downloading all those apps on the iPad itself would take hours. So my plan now is I'm going to pick an iPad 2 when I'll visit California in 1 month (April 29th). It's a lot cheaper in the US and I will be able to buy it in an official Apple Store... So I will start in LA and drive to SF. I know the current availability is low (?) and people wait every morning for new iPads... So what will be my chances to get one at the end of April around LA? Will be a white one, don't know 16 or 32 GB or 3G. Will see.
