    If I show up at the apple store before 9am SAturday, will I be able to buy an iPad?????
    Or are there just enough for pre orders????
    Will they be available at MacMall?????? There is a mac mall 5 minutes from my house.

    Chances are if you show up at 9am you will not be able to buy an iPad. You will want to get there earlier. The Apple store will have "extra" units on hand for non-pre reservations - how many is anyone's guess.

    If you want to take your chances, I'd advise that you arrive after 3pm local time to grab any unit that someone reserved and failed to pick up. I believe Apple will "constrain" supply levels for the first couple of weeks to artificially inflate demand.

    MacMall will not have them, period. Apple stores and select BestBuys will have them on launch day.

    What is this iPad thing? Tell us about it...


    OK, TUAW has some good ideas on how to get one, even if you haven't ordered one.

    Thanks.
    I was planning on getting there around 8.
    If that does not work I will be there at 1:30 for the 3pm available ones.
