Hi Guys.
This is my first post. I have been lurking about for a while, but as I just bought my second iPad today I thought that I would say hi.

Bought a black 3G 64GB model. :)
I was going to buy from the George St store today but after seeing the line :moneymouth: decided that there had to be a better option.

I checked out the Apple reseller at Next Byte at Clarence and Erskine St, but by 3PM, even though the line was better I thought that the line was still to long :eek: (probably had about 20 people waiting at that stage).

So went for a drive :cool: to UTS Building 10 off Broadway (between Broadway and Thomas St) to check out the line at the UTS computer store. I arrived around 3:30Pm and found that there was only around 5 people in the line. Sat with a great bloke named Johnny and had a chat while waiting and was on the road with the my new purchase by 5:20PM.:):):):)

Not to sure if they have many left and don't know if they are open tomorrow (probably not) but it might be worth a call on Monday to see what is available if you are still in the market :confused:

I must say, this is the first time I have lined up for anything, and the humour and friendliness of those standing with me were just great - one of the girls decided she was hungry - we minded her spot and she came back with food to share. Such a good experience.

And, as I got mine at DJs, I didn't buy a Smart Cover cos I wanted to get the (PRODUCT) Red one, which was only available through the Apple store.

26th March 2011, 05:28 PM
what: 64GB 3G White

where: Computers Now, Geelong

time: Walked in at 9:30am today (Saturday), no waiting time.

My story: Walked into Dick Smith Superstore, North Geelong at 5:15pm last night. Wasn't sure if I wanted to upgrade my iPad 64GB 3G to iPad 2 64GB 3G or not, so I tested the display model and decided to do it. There was one left and it was a white one....but I thought that black might be better for watching video and for viewing in a dark room while watching tv. So, I left without it & went home. I regretted it all night. I wanted it. Wasn't sure it was worth the upgrade price, but I still wanted it.
So this morning, I rang around Geelong and a few places had sold out of 64GB 3G models, but Computers Now had some. They wouldn't reserve one in my name since it was launch weekend....so I had to quickly get the kids ready & drive 20 mins, get a park and get into the store before they were all gone. By time I got there, the black ones were all gone but they still had a white one. It didn't bother me today so much that it was white, the colour had grown on me actually.....and since I had regretted not getting one last night, I wasn't going to make the same mistake again. Very happy now.
