    Which model? The WiFi will surely be in-stock in at least one of the stores. No release day for 3G so no way to know.

    Most likely they will have the WiFi model in stock, and possibly the 3G if the release timeframe of "Late April" holds up. Stock levels at the Vegas Apple Stores are usually pretty high from presonal experience.

    Just to be sure you can reserve the 2 iPads you are planning on buying at Apple.com/iPad and choose one of the handful of Vegas stores to stop by and pick up/pay on the specific day you want:). This will guarantee you get the iPad(s) you want without worrying about them selling out.

    Best of Luck:apple:

    Seems like you'd have better luck calling the store.

    No one knows for sure but it seems like there will be no problem with stock of wifi iPads by then. From what I have been told by Apple store employees is they get daily delivery of new inventory.

    Also for future reference, if you call a store in advance you can put items on reserve for in-store pickup. If you leave your name, and the date of pickup, an employee can special order those items in advance and keep them on hold for about a 48 hour period. This makes it particularly useful in situations like this. The store wants your money, and it costs them nothing to put items on hold, so it's a win-win situation.

    I feel your pain, even though this is an old thread, iPad's still have not released here and I got mine while over in Sydney Australia last week. Two friends went in the last month and both got turned away cause there was no stock. They won't let you order one over the phone, they can't keep one for you, they won't let you order one and send it to the store for pick up. Its just painful lol.
