Apple iPad on sale 9am 3 April at Best Buy and Apple stores

Not like you didn't know it already, but Apple is putting the iPad on sale in the US on Saturday 3 April in its 221 stores across the US. However the company has also confirmed that it will be selling the iPad in electrical retail giant Best Buy stores from 9am as well.

Apple retail stores will offer a free Personal Setup service to every customer who buys an iPad at the store, helping them customise their new iPad by setting up their email, loading their favourite apps from the App Store, as well as hosting a special iPad workshop to help customers learn more.

However, before you all pile down to Best Buy to get your new toy, be warned; chatter on the Internet suggests that the retail chain will only have a handful in each store.

How will you be getting your iPad this weekend? Or are you completely against the new tablet from Apple? Let us know in the comments below.
