PSA: iPad pre-orders begin today

Ipad
While there was a lot of grumbling when Apple finally
unveiled the iPad and its features, the system is still one of the surest bets
of the year to be a hit. If you’d prefer to avoid the long lines at your local
Apple store, today’s the day to take care of that.

Apple has begun accepting online and in-store preorders for
the iPad, with delivery scheduled for April 3. The device will go on sale in
stores that day as well. Pricing will start at $499 and run as high as $829.

Remember, the first systems that will ship are only WiFi
enabled. You won’t be able to access or subscribe to 3G networks with them. If
you want one of the 3G systems, you won’t get that until late April.
