I ordered one too.  The Apple online store in the UK was hammered by the volume of traffic, and they also stopped taking phone calls for the same reason.  They finally started accepting orders at midnight!

It is an expensive habit trying to keep up with the "latest and greatest" products from Apple - but selling my first generation iPad on eBay a few weeks ago helped to soften the blow!

Kenneth, check out the new price of refurbished iPad 2s from Apple.  They're just dropped the price after last night's announcement.  I bought my iPad (first generation) as a refurbished model from Apple and was delighted with it.  It really was like brand new (right down to the clingy cellophane wrap which covers sparkly new Apple products!), and came with the same warranty as a brand new model. 

If I could buy the new iPad as a refurbished model, I would. Big Smile

By summer, if you persistently check, you will be able to.

Yes I've ordered.  I've been holding off for the better display which should make it better to read.

I had to wait until this morning though as I couldn't get on the Uk store.

I can't wait to load up logos on it!

For right now, I am going to hold off on buying the IPas 3.  IPad 1 does all I need it to do right now.

I'll get one before too long - once they're in stock at Target (where I can get a bit of a discount). My wife's itching for my iPad 2. This is the best way to oblige her. ;)

As a soon-to-be iPad 3 owner, what are your thoughts re:

16 vs. 32 vs. 64GB

WiFi + 4G or WiFi only?

AT&T's 4G iPad rate plans: http://appadvice.com/appnn/2012/03/att-offers-cheapest-4g-lte-plan-for-new-ipad

On the other hand, I may just get the iPad 3 for my wife and I'll get a new Ivy Bridge Notebook computer in a couple months when they IB processors start showing up, which would give me total access to, and use of, Logos, which would be perhaps my main use for an iPad (I have an iPhone 4S).

I like white (my iPhone 4S color) but a coworker who has the iPad 1 and will be getting a 3 said he feels the black makes the screen colors stand out more. That may be true. But white looks nice!

Pre-ordered mine last night.  Now only 8 more days to wait!  I have had the iPad 2 for the past year and have found it to be a near perfect fit for my life.  My wife has been asking for one since I got mine so she will be getting my iPad 2 to use for herself and homeschooling the kids.  The biggest problem for us has been that I am a counselor and because I keep a large amount of confidential material on my iPad, no one, including my wife, can use it.  Getting the 3 will remedy that and give me a new toy to boot.  My iPad 2 is a 32gb wifi only model.  I have found the 32gb to be limiting for my purposes but that is because I keep a large number of files on it in addition to music, movies, etc.  So I will be getting the 64gb this time and am also opting for a 4g lte model on the verizon network.  One of the few places I cannot get wifi access is in my Sunday School class at church and would like to access online resources when teaching.  Can't wait!

My answers will all sound like: "It depends upon your needs" Wink

If you will be primarily online and if you don't care about putting many apps/games/music/video on your device, the 16GB is just fine. Otherwise, go bigger. To negate the need, Apple has taken seriously the notion of "the cloud." 

Eric Weiss:
WiFi + 4G or WiFi only?

I would only get the 4G if:

  1. You don't already have a smart phone with internet
  2. You will travel much or be in an area without wifi

I was given a 1 Gen 64GB iPad with 3G. We have really enjoyed using the 3G on trips, however, we were just given iPhones for Christmas. I don't plan on using the 3G again. Another option would be to get a mobile hotspot from a carrier. At least look at your options.

I've ordered a 64GB iPad.  I previously had a 32GB iPad (1st gen) and, to be honest, that had plenty of storage.  However, with the ability to take HD video, and be able to store more photos and music, I thought I would stretch the boat and go for the largest storage.

In terms of WiFi / 4G, I went for the WiFi only because I also have an iPhone which can be tethered to the WiFi only iPad to give me Internet access on the move (which, thus far, I've never needed.)  Also, I've read the 4G capabilities of the new iPad will be incompatible with 4G networks when they eventually hit the UK (as we'll use a different part of the spectrum to in the US - I think!)

I ordered one as soon as I could. I was refreshing the website while it was down hoping to jump on it as soon as it came back to life, but then I thought I'd be one who missed out because everyone who called got theirs first.

So I tried calling, and it took a while to get through, but I was able to place my order that way. It froze the system of the first two reps I talked to, but then they transferred me to a different sales department that was able to place the order. [They must run their sales software on PCs Wink ]

I asked a couple of questions of the reps while I was waiting for them to figure out why their computer went down, and here are two interesting things they said.

1. Apple believes they will have enough stock to meet demand by the 16th. So people intending to flip on eBay may be out of luck.

2. When I asked if we would get it around the 16th, the rep said that they intend to ship them so that everybody gets them by the 16th. That sounds like a "Logos Christmas Credit" kind of promise to me! Not that I'm impatient or anything...

I cannot wait to load Logos on this bad boy, and I really hope it's an effective tool for studying and teaching. This is my first iPad, so I'm particularly excited!
