In the tradition and spirit of any new product launch, pre-orders are failing spectacularly for most. The pre-order page went up shortly after Apple's iPad event and many users haven't been able to get past the first few pages before a time out occurred or the Apple Store app crashed.
After 90 painstaking minutes of hitting refresh and several time outs, I was able to finally get a new iPad into my cart. About 10 tries to get to the checkout later, I finally had a processed order. Some users still don't appear to be having any luck.
