    I thought about it but ended up not doing that because I wanted to be able to sell it on eBay if I ended up not using it enough and my name on it would deter some potential buyers.
    Ah yes I also thought of that but I didn't engrave my name on it. I just got a quote I like to live by. So I figured it wouldn't be too bad if I ever did want to sell mine.

    I have the pencil for the 12.9 Pro. It's a must have. It's incredible. Just my opinion.
    Do you have the keyboard? I ordered the pencil last week. It's waiting to meet its new companion tomorrow

    No I just use the software keyboard. I don't type enough on it to see the value of a $170 keyboard.

    I'm leaning towards that. What case are you using

    I ordered mine through BestBuy.com for local pickup tomorrow. Space Grey, Wifi, 128GB, AppleCare+

    How I paid for it was unusual.....

    Cardpool sells gift cards at discount prices (and buys them too, at a much lower rate than your discount price). Currently Cardpool offers BestBuy Gift Cards at a discount of 6.5%

    So, I bought $894.97 worth of e-gift cards for $836.78.. a savings of $58.19 --- I got my codes within 5 minutes of ordering.

    *** Make sure your total amount of e-gift cards do not go over 10, as BB only accepts 10 codes/PINS per order.

    *** Make sure you are getting electronic cards if you want to place an order online.

    My Discover Card offers 5% cash back on purchases thru Apple.com... but this was a better deal.

    Also ... Cardpool sells Apple Store (not iTunes) gift cards at a 4% savings.



    Thought I would throw this out there........... it worked like a charm for me... and saved me a few bucks.

    What a bummer! I just checked my order and both iPads are on a truck out for delivery today. I told my roomy that he is not allowed to leave the apartment or go to the bathroom until the iPads arrive since he has to sign for them.

    If it's safe you can print out the form and tape to your door so they will leave it without signature. Only if it is safe to leave it of course YMMV!

    Sounds like fed ex may be dropping the ball for delivery today guys. A "heavy rain" has created a delay in Memphis overnight effecting thousands of packages being delivered on time.

    http://www.fedex.com/us/servicealerts/

    Looks like mine made it out of Memphis a few hours late and that set up a domino effect, it missed a transfer in Phoenix to get to Prescott by what looks like only a few minutes to and hour. But that delays the delivery until the next day. It's still sitting in Phoenix....
    Still hoping they find a way and it arrives on time. It's only 2 hours away. Preordered through Verizon.

    I've just returned home from the Apple Store with my new pink (cough cough), I mean rose gold 9.7" iPad Pro that I purchased about 2 hours ago via the Apple Store app on my iPhone. None of the smart keyboards for it were in stock so I'll have to get that later.

    I just bought a 9.7 iPad Pro in Space Gray. This is the first time I've bought a cellular capable iPad. It's 128 gb. I got the pencil too! I don't have a case for it yet though so I'll probably keep using my Air 2 until the case comes (ordered one from Target).

    Very nice......I played around with the Apple Pencil for a bit while waiting on the genius to bring me my iPad Pro, and although it is a wonderful item, I don't see it being something I would use on a daily basis. I'm sure I'll get it eventually, but I'm not in a rush at this point.

    I haven't ordered a 9.7 iPad Pro yet - waiting until I have sufficient funds to do so... However, I also have chosen to go the engraving route with previous iPads that I have purchased:

    'Do or Do Not. There Is No Try.' - Yoda

    ...A sentiment that reminds me in part on why I purchased the iPad in the first place, and what I hope get out of using it...

    My roomy and I spent the better part of last night setting up both iPads. For me it was a simple backup and restore from my old iPad 3. For him, it was setting up a brand new Apple ID account. All he wanted to do was turn it on and play with it, however Apple in its infinite wisdom made him go through screen after screen of setup questions and validation (the fingerprint setup annoyed him no end - "Why do I have to keep touching the damn sensor!"). But once his iPad was set up he kept on ooohhhing and aaahhhing at the speed, display clarity and number of apps in the App store.

    We are both happy with the iPad Pro.

    As an FYI, you really don't have to set up anything - you do have to pick a WiFi network as far as I can tell, but you can skip Touch ID, Apple ID/iCloud, passcode, cellular, and Siri. I just tried it with my old Air 2 which was totally reset, I set it up in a vanilla mode in less than a minute. Of course all those things skipped can be entered later through settings, and it may not be intuitive to tell that this is possible! But it is super easy to get it in a vanilla state to just check something, I do it frequently.
