    My wife wants, well insists, on the 3G version so we will have to wait until that model goes on sale.

    On reserve - I just want to get something on day one from the store for once.

    Reserve. I’m betting atmosphere at the Apple Store will be entertaining and/or socially invigorating enough to compensate for the hassle.

    The online apple store makes it look like you can pre-order the 3G version now too for delivery.

    The news reports seem to be that there’s heavy demand for the wifi models, not sure about the 3G, but in theory if you order early, you have less chance of a back order.

    I’m picking up at the store. As an earlier poster pointed out, the atmosphere should be entertaining. Besides I’m traveling the next day, and I think the iPad will make an excellent travel companion.

    Problem definition is the key to problem resolution.

    Reserve. It’s more fun to wait in line and socialize with the other Macheads!
