    Hey guys,

    I'm want to get the wifi + 3G iPad when it comes out from best buy. I have like $200 in best buy gift cards im getting on the 6th of May. Do you think best buy would have 3G ipads in stock on the 6th or 7th? How was it with the original launch?

    You can only guess what they'll have.

    Even now, it's hard to find the wifi iPad in stock unless you time it just right.

    Depends on your local best buy. There were report of some best buys with queues forming in the morning and being sold out half an hour after opening, yet some people could saunter in at 4 in the afternoon and pick one up.

    True. People who did not saunter didn't get one. It was sad, very sad. :D

    But do you think things would have died down a bit if i get one a week later (may 6-7) after school (3PM)?

    After the US launch Apple has to get these things to their international customers "by late May". That particular market segment represents 58% of their market, and the demand overseas appears to be little different than it's been here in the US.

    I think the "walk into a store and buy an iPad" concept is going to be a dicey deal for quite awhile yet.
