Which iPad did you get?

I just got my 32 GB white WiFi iPad. I waited in line at Walmart for an hour and a half and got the size and color that I preferred. Can't wait to get home and check out the retina screen!

Did you also buy a TV? :D

Congrats! Can't wait to hear your impressions of the awesome screen.

Nah. I'm happy with my LCD Sony Bravia. That was just the closest place to set it down and snap a pic. I had to post immediately after buying it, ya know?! :D

Thanks!

I got mine home and didn't even unwrap it, way too tired and I need to be up by about 7 to check work email, but I am working from home so I will have plenty of time to wipe my iPad and sync my new one.

Always fun having the latest and greatest toy and Apple is such a master at setting and exceeding such expectations. I'm sure the New will be awesome. :)

Congrats Mindi from what I've read the display really helps while reading emails and web articles and that's what really interests me most! Mine is about 50 miles away but that could take 8-10 hours depending on stops! Post back your thoughts please!:)

Hmmm, doesn't say "New" anywhere on the packaging. So the Walmart three miles from my house has quantity on 16 & 32 in both colours. Surprised the Apple website is saying 2-3 weeks shipping. Will be interesting to see if that shortens or lengthens in the coming days. How fast does "in stock" ship, I've never ordered online?

Apple was prepared to partner with all these stores for launch day. As you can see by the limited availability at the mart, Apple didn't reserve too many for them. I suspect the mart will be out for some time, just like the online store.

Apple was limited in iPad and iPad 2 sales because they couldn't keep up with demand. It'll be that way with the 3rd gen for a while, as well. It's not like they want to restrict their own sales. You can only make so many so quickly.

Thank you, UPS man, for not making me wait all day!

64 GB AT&T 4G. Just activated the data plan. Going to run some speed tests shortly, but it seems very peppy.

The binary engraving looks great IMO. Not too big, not too small that it's unreadable. It may look like a product number of sorts so I think if I ever sell it, it won't detract much from the price.

We need to hear feedback on the retina display, speed...screenshots? Not that they would be too impressive viewed on some computers though.
