    Hey guys,
    On what conditions the iPads will be sold in real Apple Stores on 3rd of April?
    How much iPads will be given away to one customer? 1? 2? 10?
    Do you think they will require ID or any other documents?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    All I have to go on is what is posted on the 'mother site' and anecdotal postings by others...

    "...first come, first served..." is the usual company line. It suggests that any 'extra' iPads that are sent to the store will be sold when the doors open. Depending on your store they might run out 30 seconds or 30 minutes after that :p Apple has also posted that at 3pm any iPads that were preordered for pick up and were not claimed would be fair game...that's the only 'solid' info and it's fairly vague too.

    As far as Best Buy...they are rumored to only have 15 units per store (and only at the stores with an Apple mini-store in it). I don't know if that's true (the 15 units) but it would leave me to believe they will sell out fairly quickly. I don't see many people going there and waiting vice the Apple store...just not as 'kewl' to wait there I guess ?

    That's all I got...I have not attended an opening event either...

    Thanks!
    What do you think about the days after the DATE X (3rd April)? By what date the iPads will be freely available in most of the stores?:)
