    I am glad people are not being taken advantage of though.

    Well my case, I pre-ordered the 16 GB iPad. Decided last night to try to get a 32 GB from Walmart, 16 GB just got delivered. So now I placed it on eBay with a reserve price of $620, it sells cool if not I'll just return to Apple and I'm out nothing.

    I am glad Apple released with a large stock of preorders, then shipped many to stores, buying should be a good experience, and should be a retail cost.

    Lots of returns coming I bet from speculators if demand does not pick up in the next couple weeks.

    eBay didn't charge you a fee for setting up a reserve price?

    that doesn't make any sense. that's the whole point of the reserve...in case it doesn't meet your price point and sell above it. I think if it sells then they don't charge the fee...not the other way around.

    Not if they don't set a reserve price - both of those auctions finished below retail with no reserve. The seller definitely lost money.

    There was (still is?) a guy selling a 16GB Verizon model for $700 w/free shipping. After fees he'll lose money. Not sure why he doesn't just return it.

    lol, I pre-ordered two 32GB wi-fi only models, and then since have decided I needed the 4G capability. I went to Best Buy on my lunch break, picked up my 32GB 4G-capable device, and am going to receive my two pre-orders after work.

    I will consider selling them, depending on if the market is offering an outrageous premium, but if not I'll just drive over to the nearest Apple store to return them so that some other eager little fanboy/girl can get their hands on them. My new 3G/4G iPad will entertain me the whole way, no worries.

    :apple: :D :apple:

    I pre-ordered a 16GB wifi. I changed my mind, so I bought a 32GB at Best Buy today. I will most likely return the 16GB tomorrow.

    The 'smart' cover, I'm not sure about. $69 for a leather cover is a bit much. Maybe I'll get a polycarb instead.
