    called macconnection, they said they've shipped some units over the weekend, and that ordering now there's a 1-2 week backlog.
    just an FYI if anyone wants a (non-tax, for some) alternative to apple.com

    Just FYI. They might quote different timeframes for different models.

    I called in Sunday at 10 AM Pacific Time to place an order, and they told me the black 32GB model might come in sometime this week. My order just changed from "Backorder" to "Open" this morning.

    I ordered my white 64GB AT&T one from them on Sunday morning. They said that it would be in stock on Friday.

    It's still in "backordered", but I hope it ships soon!

    Wow MacConnection Ordered today and Shipped Today 32 GB Black Wi-Fi :D ..... Better than Crappy Apple Store who Only Care about Lines and stats instead of Customers.

    Just called - they did get some today, but they went to fill backorders. I asked about tomorrow, she said to check back, but most likely they would also go to backorders.

    I had totally forgotten about MacConnection - I used to order from them often, but hadn't in years. Thanks OP for the tip.

    I ordered around 10 AM EST and was told some models had a longer wait than others. I asked about the 32GB Wi-Fi model and she told me it wouldn't ship until around March 30th. I couldn't get my order number to go in on the site. So I did a chat. Im pumped can't believe it.

    They do charge sales tax in other states like NJ and OH (and a few others). Depends where their shipping centers are.

    Also, an interesting fact is that they allow up to 4 orders at once. Most I've seen from any vendor.

    I've always had really good experiences with this company. I wish I would have thought of them prior to placing my order with Apple but I got caught up in the "order page opens at 1 am!" hype.

    Lesson learned.

    I placed an order yesterday around noon for a 32gb black Wifi and it is shipping today, even though the customer service rep on the phone said that it would be 1-2 weeks :)

    a coworker ordered a 16GB white on Friday and it shipped on Monday. I ordered a 16GB black about 20 minutes earlier and they appear to be backordered until the 25th.

    are 16GB black models in high demand?

    Does everyone who ordered with macconnection have a landline? I've heard that there can be problems if you don't have one. I tried to ask one of the chat representatives but she was pretty useless so I guess I'll have to wait and see if I can verify the info with a rep on the phone tomorrow.

    Just chatted with them :

    - expecting a new shipment between now and 04/01
    - no sales tax to California
    - ship UPS ground for free so a bout a week to get to Ca

    Definitely getting my iPad 2 from them!

    I just called Macconection, and I can also confirm 4/01 is when the next shipment comes in.
