Hi will it work if I buy an ipad from orlando?
What about the 3g version does anyone know?
I'm in the apple shop in Florida mall right now and they are awesome
oh you little TEASE!
Ask them if they can save them for people cos I'll definitely want one in two weeks time and ask them what stock levels are like
Of what size Keith
Bigger is better!
Tom macwave:... or so I've heard!)
That is true
50p says you will get the 64gb 3g one just cos, well you might regret not doing that later
I've pretty much discounted the 3g one, especially with that mifi thing and also if I buy in the states, it'll probably come with an att sim. It's not a huge deal, I'm sure I could swap it out for a uk carrier but hmmm. No tbh, I think wifi.
in terms of size, I doubt I'd ever really use the 16GB. I wont put music on it, MAINLY it would be a web browser+email device.
16 would work, 32 probably more than enough.
Ah but at 64gb you could use it to back up your holiday pics
And although I agree about music being pointless I am thinking more and more about using it as a mobile video player for holidays and airports
Just a thoughtlet
( little by little we make him decide )
All true and of course with 64GB you'd rarely wish you'd bought the 16, the other way round however could be a very real concern.
Thing is, version 2 will be out won't it. If it takes a year I'd be surprised. So whether to REALLLLY spend a lot now hmmmm.
Mind you apparently stocks of the larger ones are a lot easier to find than the smaller, so my hand may be forced anyway.
(Insert subliminal advertising here)
With the 64 gig one, I've got buckets of videos on there. iTunes U mostly. iPhone Development ones mostly. Except for the advanced ones which seem to be having an issue. Naturally, the OpenGL ES ones are the ones I want most.
But I digress.
Having the space to get them on there is divine. If I even had the 32, I'd have to be making some hard choices. As it is, I've got enough space.
Tom macwave:... matrix multiplication for fun and profit!)
see I was going to say, I don't really see I'd need it for movies very much. I dont really see myself watching movies when out and about and the car has 7 dvd slots + a large screen if I wanted to.
HOWEVER of course, Tom mentioning the apple programming videos. hmmm yes, I can see myself carrying that kind of thing around. Hmmmmm
Game, set, and match to Mr. Catrancher!
Seriously, it's quite good for that. Of course it annoys my DW because I'll be sitting there with my headphones on and she'll be chatting away and finally gets annoyed because I don't appear to be listening to her.
C'est la vie!
Tom macwave:... I was listening! Honest!)
I really hope I don't spend a fortune on something that is outdated n less than a year - really not that bothered about a camera
Can you upload a DVD to iTunes - not tried before?
I haven't tried it either. My full length movies are the digital versions already. From what I understand, you first have to rip it with something like Handbrake. From the homepage of the software it's "Not Dead, Just Pining for the Fjords".
Gotta be great software!
Tom macwave:... gotta try that one of these days!)
right keith a bit of info for you
you will need to reserve one online as they have people waiting for the deliveries to be released. we were there at 11.15 yesterday and got a great guy serve us they are struggling with stock levels and at 11.15 the store was full of people waiting to see if they could get one. we reserved one with our itunes account and came away as they didnt even know if there was any on the delivery and we had stuff to do.
when we got the email to say there was one for us and went to pick it up the assistant could not believe we had just reserved it today as its taking alot of time to fill orders and he showed us the list on the computer when he was looking for my order.
i would really try to reserve one as it does seem there struggling with stock levels
THANKS!!! Thats excellent info!!!!! Which one did you get? I didnt think it was possible to reserve, I didnt see any option on the apple web pages... I'll try and login with my itunes account and see if I can find where you mean

hope you enjoy it sounds like you did well to get it!
aaargh! I just want to know pricing in this country
