I just heard on the news that demand for the new ipad is so great in some cases the shipping dates have been pushed back at least 3 weeks.

I was lucky, I was sitting at work just after they went up, I messaged my gf and let her know, next message back she asked me what colour and engraving I wanted.

Now we are getting them 3 days before the official March 16th launch in Australia. I got the smart cover yesterday. Best fridge magnet ever.

I'm hardly an apple fan but there is no doubt this version is carrying some pretty impressive specs. If it were running an OS that I like I would definitely be all over this. Grats to everyone who picked up a great piece of hardware.

Yea that screen is badass. I'd probably be all over it but I just got a Kindle Fire. No need for another tab atm.

Depends on where you live, but yes. Worldwide preorder stock has been depleted, retail stock has been set aside, but expect it to go pretty quick too. Demand will sore once it starts getting out and people shows friends. The high res screen is pretty amazing when compared to other tablets and laptops. That alone will drive up demand.

TNT, the delivery company for Switzerland ****ed up again as usual. Their official statement is that Swiss customers will get their iPads early next week. I can't even track mine yet...
I wish Apple would use UPS again for all shipments to Switzerland
Think I'd have better luck at a Best Buy?

Huh? Did it need a CPU increase? I would think most needed improvements would be done on the graphics and RAM side, which is what they did...
