    Heya guys,

    Just wanted to get an idea of how quickly the shipping dates got pushed back, and what shipping dates some people are looking at in reference to exactly when they ordered on launch day.

    This can also be a way to see if any of those later shipping estimates are getting pushed up! (Here's hoping :p)

    Anywho :

    Order Date: Mar 11, 2011 at 11:31 AM PDT
    Ships: Apr 1
    Delivers: Apr 6

    I was awake when they actually went up for sale online, but was still debating at the time whether or not I could allocate the funds at the time.
    Woke up a bit later and decided I'd just go for it. Looks like I should have just bought it when I saw them for 3-5 days, eh? ;)

    I'm in the exact same boat as you. In fact, we only ordered 4 minutes apart.

    Order Date: Mar 11, 2011 at 11:27 AM PDT
    Ships: Apr 1
    Delivers: Apr 6

    I was up at the moment they were released & when I saw ships in 3-5 days I decided not to order because I figured I would just walk into a store & get one before Monday. When I saw the ship time shoot up, I decided to order online anyway.

    My thought is that I already waited a year to get one, what's another 3 weeks?

    I can wait, but it's mildly annoying that it won't ship for a couple weeks.

    Happy for both of you guys!
    Wishing more and more that I had bought right when I saw them go up for sale rather than waited till 11:30! :p

    Ordered 3/11 @ 3:45 AM. BlkiPad 16g wifi was to ship in 3-5 days. BlkSC was to ship in 1-4 days. iPad shipped and is currently at FedEx in Indy. SC is still in China and wont deliver until Tuesday. Weird the SC got pushed back so far.

    I made two separate orders around 1am PST on the 11th. The 2nd one is out for delivery today and the first one is in transit in Memphis. I found it interesting that the first one made it out of Hong Kong faster but somewhere between HK and Alaska, it got beat.

    Annoyed

    I can understand... I just wished I could get some sort of update as to what my order status is. I woke up extremely early (3:50am EST) and my receipt shows the transaction went through at exactly 1:00am PSD... It'd be nice to know that my transaction and wait wasn't for nothing, but at this point, I don't even know if I'm waiting on an iPad or an email that's going to tell me Apple's sorry, but they don't currently have any iPads in stock. They told me "first come, first serve." That's complete BS. They should've said you'll get it when you get it and it's based on the availability of your model.:mad:

    I ordered at 2.56am PDT and am still showing "NOT YET SHIPPED". The case arrived today.


    IPAD WI-FI 16GB WHITE-USA
    Ships: 3 - 5 business days

    It *is* very frustrating to get up early, place an online order under the guise of "fast, free shipping" and have it end up being a long drawn out ordeal. And especially frustrating to see others who ordered the exact same thing after I did have their order ship first. That's the part I really don't understand.

    This is the first - and last - time I buy any Apple product near a launch date.
