    So if you wanted one type...why buy the version you didn't want? You will only be disappointed with it and want to return and get another.

    Does having an item on release day trump your overall happiness with the the item?

    because you don't want to stand in line for 5 hours and come back with nothing.

    I wanted Black 32GB WiFi so I just ordered online from Apple so I wouldn't have to worry about trying to track down the model I wanted locally. I couldn't line up Friday anyway because of work--not that I would have waited in line anyway.

    Should be here on Thursday per Fed Ex tracking info.

    I think we've done this same thread at least twice already.

    Yes, I got what I wanted. The only difference is that I got Verizon instead of ATT. I don't see that as a big enough difference to be significant.

    oh, sorry I hadn't seen that thread yet lol.

    Also, my model was close enough that I didn't mind paying 120 or so extra. I'll get most of that back on resale anyways.

    I would've preferred the white iPad but it's not worth waiting for god knows how long for BB to get new stock with my pre-order coupon.

    I wanted a 16GB Black Wifi but the vouchers were gone before the rep came to me so I got a 32GB Black Wifi.

    I am so glad I did because I went over 16gb the first day of getting it! lol

    Not yet, I want a Black 16gb WiFi, got a BB voucher for a White one. My BB never got their initial shipment, so once they arrive the people with vouchers are still first (im very skeptical, but you never know) I like white but Im just not sure. If anything i’ll pass on the white and wait it out for a black one.

    Fortunately, the Apple store had the model I wanted . . . A Black 32gb wifi model. If not, I would have waited for the one I wanted.

    I wanted the 64gb AT&T in black
    I got 16gb wifi in black

    I decided to take home what I could get and see how I would use it. It is my first iPad so was kinda unsure. That being said I see i'm going to be using this thing a lot so still might trade it in for the 64gb AT&T model. With that said I really haven't even touched much of the 16gb yet so who knows. I got two weeks to figure it out.

    Stood in line for three and a half hours yesterday at my Apple store just to see if I could even get my hands on any model. The employees insisted that anyone near my position in line for sure wouldn't be getting a ticket, but I stood around anyways.

    After a fight and cutting ensued, I got to the front of the line and all they had left was one 64 3G for Verizon, I was hoping to get AT&T. I may exchange later, as I get good enough coverage with AT&T wherever I'd be bringing my iPad. Still not sure though yet, as Verizon 3G seems speedy enough for me.

    Got there 2 hrs before, and got what I wanted - 65 B AT&T. But at that point, they were already short on AT&T Models -- after about 75 people.
