iPad 2 Launch

Did You Buy an iPad 2 Over the Weekend? Share Your Story!

Last week, nearly half of you said you planned to pick up an iPad over launch weekend. Initial reports say that sales were very strong, with many stores selling out of devices and Apple's website now reporting delays of three to four weeks after ordering an iPad online.

While I didn't pick one up for myself (I'm going to try and stick it out with the original. . . for now), I did go with a friend to pick up his new toy as not to miss out on the fun. The "fun" turned out to be a two-hour wait at a Best Buy in San Francisco, and when we got to the front of the line, the only WiFi-only option left was a 64GB white model. While he originally planned on buying a 32GB black iPad, he turned to me and said, "I'm getting a 64 gig white iPad, aren't I?" I cheerfully agreed. And even though the guy in line behind us tried to talk him out of it by telling him the white seemed "so girly" (it was the last WiFi only iPad in stock), my friend did in fact end up with a 64GB white iPad.

While this story is funny I'm sure it's far from unique. Did you brave the lines this weekend for an iPad? See anything funny? Please share below!

I had to put myself on a waiting list at Best Buy after driving around to every other sold out store...

Nothing super funny, just lucky I guess. I happen to call Austin home, and because of SXSW starting the same day the iPad was released, Apple set up a pop-up shop downtown. I let the first night pass after seeing pictures of the crazy long lines and hearing how long people were waiting. I had ordered a white 16gb wifi only online early early Friday morning, but the shipment time was awful. So Saturday came and I had a friend who went to the pop-up store. They waited 10 minutes and got exactly what they wanted!!! So I dropped everything and raced down there cause I couldn't wait a few weeks for mine to come in the mail! Of course by the time I got there they only had black left of any model. But I figured it would have a case on it anyway, what does t matter the color? I wanted to walk out of that store with an iPad 2. So I did, I only waited 20 minutes altogether for the line and to check out once inside. Of course, my boyfriend then wanted to know if I was gonna keep the shipment one too and could he have it?! Lol
