    Mine's changed to Preparing for Shipment Delivers on March 16 but then if it DOES get there on the right day, it will be only the second time Apple have managed it

    I think that was a result of all the lengthy delays last time, remember we got them quite a while after the US at the beginning.

    Mine now says 'preparing for shipment' now as well

    I did notice about an hour after I bought one so by midday on the Thursday the page for ordering had changed from 'on march 16th' to after march 18th so all their early allocation must have gone and some configurations will be more popular than others.

    Just one last thought, as you did such an impressive order and apple l,Ickes to ship everything at the same time, is there any chance it's any one of the other items, like the new TV.

    i did it on separate orders so that i would get everything when it was ready :yes: not as stupid as i look LOL. No i think that by the time i booked they had already taken too many orders to fulfil. I may be lucky and get it a little earlier. Shame as Jon's off to China on Thursday and would have liked to take my current iPad with him. He can't have it and me be without of 2-3 weeks LOL

    imo you have more choice of colour with the synthetic for the white - synthetic i'd choose the blue i think and leather the red or black. I've chosen red with a black one
