    Tomorrow i will go to the apple store to get myself an ipad. If i cannot get an ipad cause of you, I will beat the friking sheize out of you in the parking lot.

    We have become such a good society that we let too many things go by.

    If you want an ipad and see scalpers just go in front of them. If the y giv you problems just call home land security.

    Enough is enough

    Lol, blaming scalpers and using racism as an excuse for you being lazy and likely worthless. Why don't you stop being a bum, get up like everyone else does early, and buy it? Or better, you could've bought it launch day, like everyone else who did, or ordered online by just waking the **** up in time.

    Theres no excuse for you not having an iPad 2 right now if you really wanted one, hundreds of thousands went out across the country and have been going out since, if you were too lazy / broke / poorly located to grab one it's no one else's fault but your own. Homeland security doesn't wanna hear from your ass, go get a better job so that you can pay scalpers prices if you're so ****ing lazy that you can't get up for something you feel so entitled to on day one. Otherwise just wait it out like the rest of the people who figure (for whatever ignorant reason) that these things wouldn't sell out for the first month + of release.

    Other than the people who stand around with wads of cash (something I didn't see and I was in line for 4 hours on launch date and got my iPad at 5:10 PM), how can you tell who is a scalper?

    I wonder how many so called scalpers spotted by people were actually legit buyers.

    Too late. Got lucky, ended up with two extra (out of five) & just sold them.

    I've already deposited the funds, the buyer immediately shipped them out of the country.

    He approached me with a business card while we were in line at Apple. Not expecting to end up with extra's I almost trashed his card.

    Now I'm thrilled I didn't. I would have never guessed how much he would actually pay.

    Mind boggling.

    Get up early like everyone else. I was exchanging one today because my wife wanted black instead of white. Someone in line actually purchased from me. Picked up another 16 gig for my wife and selling the other. IF you want I will sell to you just pm me.

    And just how many of your fellow MacRumors members do you believe are scalpers? Not sure your addressing the right crowd here, then again the right crowd could probably careless.

    How about you get in line before they do...

    They are buying the same thing as everyone else, but for a different reason. Get out of your bed and go to the store earlier, or order online when you should have.

    Breaking News: Police have arrested a young man whom they describe as emotionally distraught after he attacked a patron of local Apple store screaming "gives me my precious, gives me my precious iPad2 you filthy stinkin scalper!" Sister Mary Buttersworth, his intended victim, subdued the young man until police arrived. The 64 year old nun was unhurt in the attack.

    The 12 year old troll is full, he doesn't need to eat any more threads. Let's stop feeding the troll.
