    Or do you have to buy online? wanted to walk in at some point and buy one but wasn't sure if they have enough stock in.

    You can enter the order as if you were ordering online but in the cart you can check the inventory of your local store. If available you could then either reserve to pick it up or delete the order and go to the store.

    Both of our local stores had inventory yet last night for certain models.

    I just walked in on launch day and bought it..they had to check if they had stock but it might be different in the states...this was my first time buying on a release date so it'll be best if you make a call to the store before you go, just in case

    Go to apple.com and do in store pick up. It wil show if they have it in stock. Every apple store around me has ipad 4's in stock.

    That's the point of calling. If they say yes, walk straight in. If not, either wait until they have stock or buy online.

    I tried but to no avail

    When I went to buy my iPad 3 I tried walking into the store but they turned me away. I'd just make sure to pack a unicycle in case the same rule is in effect.

    But on a serious note, at my local store in Michigan I was able to go in and buy 3 of the white 16GB ones with no problem. It's largely dependent on where you live.
