    Where to find iPad 2

    A friend of mine wants me to pick up an iPad 2 for her husband. I don't want to wander all over just to find out where they aren't. Anybody know where I can pick one up?

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    Is it very hard to find them? I would expect places like target would have them or the apple store if nothing else.

    OK, never mind, I just looked on apple.com. 3-4 week lead time.

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    They'll have to wait 3-5 weeks. You probably won't find them in a store right now. They would probably have to order one at this point, or wait a month or so. A couple of stores where I asked (was curious) said they sold all they had within a hour!

    Where to find iPad 2

    Yeah you're not going to find one unless you're willing to make it a full time job for a few days.
    Radio shack might be getting them in the next few days. Don't know of that has been well publicized.

    Aside from that, you can but one at huge markup on eBay or you can wait a month and order online.

    It's pretty much sold out worldwide.

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    Just buy an iPad ver 1. Much easier to find and really not a big difference.

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    Check out this website at iPad2 Scanner Looks like your only bet for getting one at Target around the metro is Urbandale with a 32gb black model with AT&T

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    I used something similar. Someone at this website provided links to check each model on Target's online inventory tracker. Looks like a White Wi-Fi 64 GB is available at the Urbandale Target. I was able to use this the Monday or Tuesday after these came out and found one in West Des Moines. I would suggest checking this in the morning, after they've restocked over night. I was able to walk into a Target and grab one easily.

    Re: Where to find iPad 2

    I used the link from Macrumors and hooked up a iPad 2 from Ankeny Super Target a few weeks ago. I called because it showed the inventory but the sales person had no clue so I went to check it out. Sure enough they had several in stock.

    Ipad2 puts out a frame rate three times higher as it has a faster chip.
