    Just got my iPad and really looking to get a apple branded case. All local best buys, apple stores and Frys are sold out around me. So i looked online at the apple store and it shows s 3-4 week ship date.... Seriously??? Or is that a bad estimate?? Just curious if i place a order on apple if i will really be waiting 3-4 weeks. I can get a iPad in 7-10 days but wait a month for a case seems a bit odd

    I had one on order and was one week in when I was able buy a couple from my local apple store. Safe bet is to order it via Apple - and then check your apple store from time to time. Not sure why you feel its Odd to have one item available before another item - happens all the time in the world that I live in.

    Note - Fry's in my area have yet to receive anything from Apple for the Ipad - including Ipad's. The Best Buy's that I called in my area said they have yet to receive the Apple Ipad case either.

    Apply vastly underestimated demand for the case.

    How many times are you going to post that picture? Do you want us to congratulate you on getting 3 of them? I can send you my empty box and you could really look cool if you want, just let me know where to ship it.

    Apple wasted them all in the UK! Lol

    I went to my nearest apple store yesterday and they had 15+ in stock there! The racks were full, and I would expect the cases to be from launch day (last Friday here) so they're not selling many here.

    Should have bought them all, maybe I could have made a profit by sending them to the US!

    Good luck searching.

    Regents street on Sunday had loads of the cases and ipads. I saw a number of trolleys going past with them on while I queued for my case purchase. The ipad queue was huge!!

    I placed my order on May 10th and my ship date is June 8th. It can't get here soon enough! I am scared to death something bad is going to happen to my precious....

    For the last few weeks the best buy site has been stating unavailable for the Apple case, Now the site has changed to say "Coming Soon" for it.

    It's like they "un-released" this case...

    How ironic would it be if UK folks ended up selling Apple cases to US peeps! ;):D

    I know this isn't what you are looking for, but I suggest you stay away from the apple case. Its complete crap, i've had it and returned it the same day. None of the ports even align right.

    Look for the Yoobao case thread here. It mimics the apple case but a lot better, and same price (might even be able to find it cheaper)
