I'm planning on getting an iPad 2 in a week (can't wait!). Is it still tough to track down an Apple store with them in stock? I still haven't decided to buy in-person or online yet as online orders take 1-2 weeks to ship according to the website.

A few weeks back it did seem that some stores had finally caught up to demands.. But lately I am hearing from some people who have been trying to get an iPad that its back to being nearly impossible again unless your willing to camp out one morning

It really depends on where you look. Target in my area seems to have a decent stock now, but a couple of weeks ago, the case was completely empty. I've also heard that WalMart has had stock here and there.

If you order one from Apple directly, it will ship straight from the factory (or maybe not right now, since the explosion last week).

My company ordered me one late last month from their vendor (MoreDirect) and they had it to me in a little less than a week, so clearly they are better able to keep up with demand now.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Okay, thanks for the input, guys! I'll probably end up checking the two Apple stores in my area on Monday and if they don't have any in stock, I'll just order online.

My local Walmart had 2 in stock the day that I bought mine. They were both 16gb wi-fi, one black and one white.

You're probably better off ordering online from Apple, so you can get the exact one you want.

It's a crap shot. I ordered mine through the Apple store. Changed my mine and cancelled. Then changed my mine again and took a 70 mile drive to the closest Apple store and got just what I wanted. They were busy so I had to wait 45 min. Still better than the 2-3 weeks from China. It's just hit and miss with their stock.

Called my local store today, and they had it in stock! The specialists who helped me out were all very cool and told me about their experiences with the iPad in college, best experience at the Apple store yet.
