It's just about that time again folks! I know the launch isn't until several more hours however, it's time to increase the excitement of the new iPad!

Are you currently waiting in line? Are you buying in store tomorrow? Are you buying online?

I'll be picking up my 32GB iPad tomorrow morning hopefully once the line dies down.

Just got my 16gb wifi. (Australia here). Massive supply here, every reseller hadplenty of the wifi models, cellular a little more constrained particularly in 128gb. But this is a "regional" town so I can imagine the bigger cities would have plenty. Price discounting at quite a few places already. $30-$40 off at the bigger chains ($50 for the 128gb). Some stores refusing to price match, ended up negotiating $15 off mine which saved me a 30 minute drive to a bigger retailer.

I'm coming from an iPad 2, so firstly the screen is magic, just wow!.
Very impressed by the speed, I also have an iPhone 5S so was interested to see how it would go, just as snappy.
Obviously huge weight difference and the size is very nice to hold. I am a bigger guy and my wife has an ipad mini, i really liked the weight and bezel size on that, but just looks like an iphone in my big hands. So big screen was a must for me.

The change in the taper of the back of the device, from a sort of blade in the Ipad 2, to the more rounded edges is also nice.

Overall, this thing feels great in your hands, looks beautiful to the eye and performs perfectly. Loving it.

I decided to skip the lines. Ordered my 32GB Space Grey at 3:02 am EDT via the Apple Store App. Love that app. I'll go pick it up later today at my leisure. :)

Just ordered mine as we'll, but have no idea when I can pick mine up. Is that supposed to be communicated in the pickup email?

Oh didn't see this thread. I didn't feel like going to the mall today, I can wait until Monday. I did initially select pickup at store though but changed my mind at the last moment.

Ordered a White (changed my mind at last minute), 64GB, Verizon.
