It’s like deja vu all over again. How can you get your hands on the coveted iPad 3? If this sounds familiar, well, this was the same routine one year ago for the iPad 2, and the two years ago for the iPad 1. So many people want to buy them and the Apple tech folks do a great marketing masquerade of making consumers want more due to the seemingly lack of supply.
Here’s the deal in buying the iPad 3, a.k.a. the new iPad:
- When? Friday, March 16, 2012 at 8AM
- Where? Apple retail stores and Apple store website
- Where else? Best Buy, Radio Shack, Sam’s Club, Target, and Walmart. Check the store’s opening times.
- How much? $499 for 16GB Wi-Fi; $629 for 16GB, Wi-Fi + 4Gg, and the 32GB and 64GB are $100 and $200 more respectively.
I recommend buying online. Unless you’re an Apple expert junkie and want to experience the long lines, buy online and get your iPad in a few days. Also, you’re not guaranteed the technology store you’re going to has the iPad in stock. So, you’re wait time could be for nought.
If you’re still wondering if you should be the iPad 3, just imagine putting prescription glasses on for the first time. It’s as if your vision has suddenly improved and the world just looks prettier. That’s the best way I can describe it as well as it being faster.
