    iPad 2 - so who has ordered/obtained one (or more)

    Placed the order for 64GB 3G and black leather smart cover at 6AM today (I might still cancel between now and delivery depending on funding options).

    It was showing 2 - 3 weeks delivery (21 April) this morning.

    This could be a long wait...

    Anyone had hands on yet?
    I have my iPad... it is ... precious to me...

    So much concrete so little time...

    re: iPad 2 - so who has ordered/obtained one (or more)

    Mrs H has me locked in a room and has taken my credit cards off me.

    I know the improvements over the 1st generation IPads will not really be enough to justify buying one....but I can't help myself.

    I'd be very interested to see any feedback from those with 1st gen IPads and have bought the new one.

    I know why one would want to obtain one, but why on earth would you want to smell it?

    (Yeah I know, that description, too, is for a word of the wrong spelling, but I just say it as I read it, and that came to my mind...)

    P.S. Another iPad/iPhone typing error?

    Nope - though I am using an apple keyboard with my ThinkPad laptop

    It was just fat finger syndrome

    Almost certainly what I'll do. Just watch out for state and city sales taxes.

    I would also think about availability - there are none in many stores at the moment. Obviously that will ease over time.

    Ordered at 11:40pm last night (online store went up 20 minutes early). Was showing 2-3 weeks for shipping right off the bat

    Ordered a 16Gb Black Wifi, will hunt around local stores and if I can get one local will cancel the online order.

    My wife is happy because she will finally get to use "her" iPad 1

    I am probably going to get one when I go the US later in the year. It will be my first trip there, so I'm not that familiar with the state and city sales taxes - can you offer any further detail on this? Is there a lot of variation between states? Any thoughts on the cheapest place to buy?

    I think state taxes vary by 8 - 12%. There are ways to avoid these by buying online in the US but it gets tricky. The US price conversion is not that different to Oz when you add on sales tax (US) and take off GST (Oz). Personally I would buy here (you get an Oz power lead as well dont forget) rather than spend time in the US saving a small amount (note $40 is a lot to some people but anyone dropping $1000 on an iPad probably is not that concerned about the $40) on your iPad when you could be saving a massive amount on designer kids clothes.
