The iPad officially goes on sale in Australia this Friday, but there's plenty of people who have already acquired one from overseas. But if you were planning on getting rid of an early import or trying to take advantage of Apple selling out its first shipment, be aware that eBay has set some very specific rules on selling the iPad.
While businesses that are already authorised Apple resellers can flog as many iPads as they like, the rules are much tighter for others. Sellers with a history of selling computer gear can sell up to eight iPads a week; everyone else is limited to four.
Bottom line? If you buy an iPad and it turns out to be a disappointment, you can sell it second-hand no problem. Just don't try making a habit of it.
