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!
