I ordered the 3G version and I will be in Europe the last week in April. I had a note from Apple on Friday telling me "that my order had shipped." I had a few good moments before I realized that they were telling me to expect my case on Wednesday.

Joe had enthusiasm and was reasonably good at upside down.
In the back right of the store there was an iPad "workshop" beginning on the half hour. Here knowledge was the key ingredient. I learned a lot. Because I had seen Andy Ihnatko" demo on TWIT, so did the "genius."
This is an Apple product in every sense of the word. It is innovative. It simply oozes quality. The screen is everything you have been led to expect. It is bright, quick, and can be viewed at an oblique angle. Scrolling and zooming are fast and smooth. Even the on-screen keyboard is a winner. Hell, I even liked the case.
Even if the iPad is not for you, and it is not for everyone, buy Apple stock.
