    They stock as soon as the shipments arrive. ;)

    The only thing anyone can tell you for certain, is that they will have a certain amount of stock ready to go at 5:00pm on Friday, April 30, when the 3G iPad is released in stores.

    I have a funny feeling there will be a lot of stock on eBay. ;)

    eBay is overpriced for a iPad.
    Anyone know around how long it takes?

    Can you reserve a 3G if you walk into an Apple store?

    Can you reserve at all apple stores? I called my local store today and they were out of stock but didn't mention anything about being able to reserve.

    Yes you can. They dont tell your themselves that you can reserve. Today, i asked if they have in-stock and they said no and i asked myself if i can reserve one and they said yes.:apple:

    Humm, I hope I do not waste a trip. If this is the case then I will go to the Apple store and talk to someone.

    But how can they reserve now without knowing how much stock they will receive?

    You are put on a list. If you are number 19 and they get 20 then you will get one. If they only get 18 then you will be the first person to receive one on their next shipment.

    People who reserve get them before they allow people to walk in to buy one.

    Probably will end up paying 200-300 more than retail if you buy it on ebay.

    With iPhones they would update the retail pages for each store after 9pm everyday regarding new stock.
    I would keep an eye out for something like that for iPad.

    That's one thing I can't stand!! All these stupid people buying up ipads with no intention of using it for themselves, just to resell them on ebay for a ridiculous amount.
