    Until about a minute ago, when you went to www.apple.com/ipad it took you to the old iPad 2 page. Now the new page is there, with a button in the top right that says "Pre-order now."

    However, the online Apple Store is still down.

    Seems as soon as they can get the online store back up, pre-orders will beginnnnnnnn.

    Is it up? I'm not getting the "We'll be back soon" page anymore, just timing out.

    That button is nothing more than a tease.

    I got to the pick up at store part and the Apple store app crashed. Now all I get is the We'll be back soon page.

    How'd you manage to get in the store? All I get is the "We'll be back soon..." page!

    Got in at the right time, I guess. I was actually able to get it going on two different browsers at the same time, just in case.

    Got my confirmation e-mail already, as well.

    You can get to the selection page now, but you cannot add it to the cart, yet.

    And why no calculator?

    Ok...this is SO frustrating. I've gotten to the "Checkout Now" page a few times, but it registers each failed attempt and puts an iPad in your cart. Then when I try to put the number back to 1...it times out! ARGH!

    It took 3 tries on the Canadian Page to order. Must be very busy!

    Yes, the Apple servers are getting hit hard right now. Don't give up, though!
