    :taunt: they should have already given free ipads to you me and Tom after all the plugging we do on here! We're surely more important and influential than Stephen Fry!

    I just called the Apple store at the Florida Mall to ask about this. For the straight Wi-Fi model, they said the only way you can reserve one is to come into the store and reserve it there. Like daveann did. They'll send you an email when it's available and you then have 24 hours to come pick it up. The 3G ones are first come, first served.

    I explained that you were in the UK and coming over on vacation so how could you possible come in to reserve it before you got here. He explained that that was the only way to do it. :mental:

    I think I spoke to the only moron in all of the Apple stores. At least he was the only one I've ever gotten who acted that stupid! :mad:

    Tom :)macwave:... we'll figure this out!)

    :lol: awww thanks Tom seriously I appreciate that :yes: At least we know properly where we stand.

    The reply the guy at work got when he phoned was "absolutely no preordering of any kind now that the initial web preordering process has gone"

    The reply you got makes more sense even though it still sucks :lol:

    Keep in mind that there are 3 Apple stores in the greater Orlando area (Florida Mall, Millennia, and Altamonte Springs) plus 2 others (Brandon and Tampa) within a bit of a drive (1 1/2 hours one way).

    So, if one's out, perhaps the others can accommodate you! :unsure:

    Tom :)macwave:... if Dad says no, go ask Mom!)

    Cheers I really appreciate that and I'll pm you :) the only thing is, I wont be able to collect it until May 13th so I'm not sure the "we'll call you and you must collect in 24hrs" thing will work out :/
