I had a question on how long it takes to receive a requested ipad if I requested it on Saturday morning?

If you pre-order an iPad on saturday from the apple website, you won't receive an iPad in your house till May 7th. That's when Apple Starts to ship Customers iPad's on the May 7th ship date. If you would have pre-order an iPad 2 weeks ago, prior to the announcement of the April 30th launch day, you would have received it on April 30th. ;) (This is for 3G iPad only, for Wi-Fi it's 5-7 business days)

Surprised no one realize you meant in-store. I have heard of people getting it a couple days after. Will probably be this week.

I got mine 2 days later after in store register. They will send you an email which at that time you have 24 hours to pick it up.

It almost seems like if you requested one on Friday your more than likely to get it on Saturday morning when the shipment comes for the weekend. For me I requested mine saturday morning around ten. So I'm hoping they will send me the notification email today. But I'm not sure of there is a shipment that comes in today.

WIll get mine this week!

I actually just sopke with my local apple store in Schamburg, IL and the guy said that they were getting shipments at noon, but then told me about the in-store reservation thing and said that most shipments now go to those who reserved it. Then i asked him if it would be faster to order it online or reserve it, and he was hesitant at first but then said ure better off reserving it because it's faster. SO will go to reserve it during my lunch break! lol. Or hopefully they have it in stock idk but anyways im excited.

I was really lucky to get my iPad the day after i reserved one at the apple store. On Friday, at 7 pm, I reserved it, then got it on Saturday. I was extremely happy!
Same here! I reserved it this past Friday around 5 in the evening, by 1 pm Saturday I was syncing it.

I reserved around 1PM on sunday, and got an email at 2PM saying it was ready for pickup. Luckily I was still at the mall, and got the ipad immediately!

My Apple store (Naperville, IL) said it could be 3-5 business days....
He said to call them if I dont have an email by Wednesday..

Why don't you order one online? Waiting since launch? I ordered mine on April 15th and received it this morning. Yeah I waited a bit, but I have it. If you would of ordered it at launch I guarantee you would have one, most likely for a few weeks now.

Funny. Looks like all us Illinois boys are having trouble finding them...
Naperville, Schaumburg, and Oak Brook have been out since launch it seems like.
I just hope to god my reservation comes tomorrow. (been saying that for 3 days now) ;)

Naperville is kinda the smaller store outta the 3.. I was actually thinking of reserving at Oak Brook AND Schaumburg also.. I think you would get yours faster at those stores than I would at mine..
I didnt think so many people did the in store res but apparently they did! :(
They told me today on the phone that Sunday is the only day they dont get shipments.(obviously)
I reserved Thursday at 6pm. Friday, Saturday, Monday- 3 days. Tomorrow would be the fourth. I would think it would have to be any day now. The guy even said if I dont hear anything by Wednesday to call back in.
This morning Naperville got the delivery right around noon also. Now I at least know if I dont hear something by noon then it probably wont be that day...

If you did it on Saturday I'd say your more on like day one. Sorry! I dont want to get you down but I bet Saturday didnt count if they already got the shipment that day. Sunday didnt count. Today would be the first full day of movement.
