Many of us can’t wait to get our hands on the new Apple iPad. Unfortunately, if you did not order your device online early, you are going to have to wait a while to get your hands on it. The device will officially launch on March 16th. But some are already thinking about selling their tablets on eBay. Some iPad owners are trying to sell their tablets for over $1000 to those who can’t wait a couple of weeks to get theirs.
Purchasing the new iPad from eBay is not a very good idea. In many cases, you may end up paying a whole lot more than you should to get the tablet. Besides, not all sellers on eBay are honest enough to actually ship what they sell. The headaches involved could be a huge turn-off. If you order online, Apple will ship your tablet in 2-3 weeks. Buying your tablet in person is an option too.
Those of you who are planning to give your favorite Apple Store a visit to pick up the new iPad need to show up early. The lines can be atrocious otherwise. The wait may be minimal if you get lucky. But in most cases, you may want to bring your old tablet with you to do something productive while waiting. Working as a team with friends could save you some time too. Don’t forget snacks and water.
Staying in line for a couple of hours or more may not be acceptable to everyone. But it beats paying over $1000 for $600 tablets on eBay. Besides, you may find a few new friends by doing so. You won’t have to be the first person in line but showing up early is key.
