I'm toying around with the idea of getting "the new" iPad soon. I've been perusing eBay and saw that I could save a little money on some auctions from out of state sellers. Is it a wise idea to buy from eBay or is it a better idea just to suck it up and pay the tax to get it locally from say like a place like Best Buy? Earlier I saw a person selling the 16GB wifi model for $450 with free shipped which made me wonder if it was stolen!

I've bought and sold a lot of things on eBay and have had very few problems with sellers or buyers. Recommend checking their feedback record before purchasing anything though.
True, that person selling it for $450 hadn't sold anything for over a year. Made me a little skeptical. Lots of legitimate sellers on eBay though.
