    So I'm not sure how I want to order my iPad 2..

    I get out of work at 6, and I want to get my iPad on launch day.

    So does anyone know if I order my iPad online will it be delivered to me on launch day?

    Or should I just show up at the Apple Store after I get out of work?

    From everything reported, it's not going to be available for order until the 11th so expecting to get delivery the same day is probably not a good idea.

    Just wait until you get off work. Between Apple, VZW, AT&T and Best Buy you should be able to find one.

    I'm hoping it will be a very VZW iPhone release day scenario. I leave work at 5 on friday like mostly everyone and I plan on stopping by a couple best buy's on the way home. If they don't have any left I might try over the weekend. But I'm not waiting in line. If I don't have one by Monday I'll probably just order it online.

    This makes a lot of sense to me, provided you have a number of outlets along your commute. This is the approach I'm taking.

    And Walmart.

    I think I will try AT&T first. Then Best Buy.

    So it is for sure that AT&T will have them on launch day? I missed that apparently.

    I wonder if there is a limit to how many one can buy.

    Sounds like they are trying to get as many in people's hands on the first day as possible because...if given time to think about it. I'd probably choose not to get one. They gotta get us while we are hot with desire!!!!

    Good way for your friend to get fired.

    Just stay at work. You will need the $$ to help pay for the thing. (assuming you are to make payments) and skipping work like a kid skipping school is just stupid.

    anyone know if I order it online will it require a signature upon delivery or will ups/fedex/usps just leave it at my door?

    Not sure how my friend would get fired for holding one. I'm not using her discount. Walmart is still getting their $600.

    I never said I was skipping work. Not sure how you deduced that. I have plenty of money, sold my old iPhone 3GS and iPad to cover costs.

    They are just jealous. People who work retail stash stuff for themselves and for friends to buy if the store may run out. There aren't many perks for working retail plus they get treated like crap. One thing that keeps people on the job is being able to get products first.

    Your post in no way indicated that what your friend was doing was illegal or could get them fired. And you in no way indicated that you wouldn't be paying for it.

    I would like to pick one up tomorrow as well (16 gb wi-fi). I am thinking about my local Wal Mart or Target first, thinking they are not likely to have lines (but I'm not sure if all stores will have the iPad on launch day - perhaps only the big stores?). Not sure about this. Any ideas?

    If not, I may need to check out Best Buy.

    Will ATTand Verizon be selling only 3G ipads or all types including wi-fi only?

    Ordering online will have delivery for Tuesday, perhaps Monday depending on how early you order tomorrow morning.

    You could always call both Target and Walmart and speak to their respective electronics dept managers. They should know if they are getting them.

    AFAIK, ATT only carries the 3G models.
