Hey guys, i remember last year i woke up at 3am to place a preorder, is it going to be the same this time too? i mean they said preorders begin Oct 17th, but what time?
They announced today at the event that on Oct 17, you can pre-order the iPad and that would mean 12:00 midnight PST (west coast time) 3 Am EST. But when they announced iMac could be ordered after the event I thought we would have trouble getting into the store etc.. but not a problem today. I ordered my Retina 27" iMac today with no glitches. So I expect or hope that the iPad is the same way. Sometime after 12:00 AM Pst they will turn on the Apple store if its goes down later tonight just before midnight then they will come back on after midnight and things should go more smoothly than last time.Hey guys, i remember last year i woke up at 3am to place a preorder, is it going to be the same this time too? i mean they said preorders begin Oct 17th, but what time?
Still no luck at 3 am. They were pretty specific about the 12am thing so this seems a bit odd. Oh well. I'll just keep checkingStill nothing yet. I have been trying different country Apple Stores, but it doesn't seem to be available for pre-order, yet. Any updates from you?
Apple Online Store support opens at 4am (Pacific Time) - perhaps by then. At least they will be around to answer questions. I asked them yesterday and they just said they did not have that information yet.
Demand is not huge. After ipad 2. Demand hasn't been great on preorders. Plus you can pretty much walk in and get any ipad on launch day as well.Demand is huge for these new iPads. I predict they will sell out of all models within minutes. I'm refreshing every few seconds to make sure I don't miss out.
