    Thought we needed a thread to discuss availability, pre-orders, pricing, the new iPad in general really for us British folk. So hey, who's getting one? :)

    Yeah I'm constantly refreshing.

    Also, might consider buying it from John Lewis when they get stock as they have 2 year guarantees on their tablets, and great service in general.

    I love these "UK new product" threads :)

    Let's start with a gamble. How many pages in are we going to get before the store opens? I say... 40 pages, followed by 100 pages of order status updates :)

    Just waiting for the store to go up and I'll be grabbing a 32GB wifi only. So we assume UK pricing stays the same, just as US pricing did?

    So before this thread explodes does anyone remember if the UK offered a student discount on the iPad? I seem to remember it taking £16 off the 16GB version.

    If anyone could confirm it was only £16 I'd appreciate it. £16 isn't enough to risk not pre-ordering tonight.

    Stupid question, but the "4G" models will still work over the 3G networks in the UK, right?

    Going for WiFi 64Gb

    Looking forward to the 16th now :)

    The student discount for an iPad was £15. I expect that will remain.

    TopCashback is offering 2 or 3%, I think? Perhaps someone can verify?

    This question always comes up and almost always the happiest people on the thread end up being the ones who pre-ordered. Some collect the night before :)

    Please, no one stay outside a store all night to get the iPad first thing in the morning!

    Apart from that, can't wait. I'm one of those fools who has to have all the latest things, ya know, the one where grandad jokes that he still uses his wooden football boots from 1768!

    I'm sure you get 4% off it, or thereabouts.

    16GB was £387, 32GB was £464

    I have a black wifi 16gb iPad 2 - the wife and 3 year old will be inheriting this. Thinking about going white for the new iPad - especially so it will be a lot more distinguishable as the "new" one in the house.
    Opinions on the white vs black would be welcome please to help me decide while waiting for pre-orders.
    Thanks!

    When I click pre-order the page isn't loading. So frustrating

    Traffic is terrible this time of day
