    So, if I bought several iPad 3's at launch, what kind of resale value profit might I be looking at?

    If they only launch in the United States first, you'll be able to sell them for a small fortune on eBay to other countries. But you can only buy two from Apple.

    They would be brand new, in package.

    Example: I buy three iPad 3's and sell them on Ebay or Craigslist. What kind of mark up would I be able to have on the original price since the demand was so high?

    ----------

    That is very good to know. Domestically what kind of profit would I be looking at?

    I don't know about the US, I'm afraid. I'm unsure of supply, and Apple may be better prepared for this generation. I do know the original 16GB iPads were selling for upwards of £1000 on our eBay site in the UK, prior to their international release, which is $1582 dollars.

    The starting price isn't what this thread is about.

    Haha...

    Its only the first editions of products that can sell for premium $ ... This iPad will come to europe within 14 days of the US release, - So yes, maybe 1-2 idiots are dumb enought to import some pads from the US, but many "hamsters" has the same idear as you, so good luck with that masterplan :p
