BUNDABERG Apple fans may have a wait on their hands to secure the much-heralded iPad3.

Crowds of people line up outside retailers in capital cities in the early hours of this morning to purchase the powerful mini-computer.

The iPad3 will be available in Bundaberg through Bundaberg Technology Solutions, the region's official supplier and repair service for Apple products.

Bundaberg Technology Solutions office manager Yvonne Hall said supply would be dependent on how quickly the iPad3 sells in capital cities.

"It depends on how the product initially allocated for Australia lasts," she said.

"We're hopeful of having it in on Monday but if demand outstrips supply we may have to wait a few weeks until the next shipment."

Mrs Hall said it had been hard not to get caught up in the hype surrounding the launch.

"The pre-orders have been coming in fairly steadily," she said. "I'm seriously considering it. I've been trying to justify it to myself."

Bundaberg Mac Group member Bruce Cairns is eagerly waiting to secure his very own iPad3.

He plans to upgrade from an original iPad purchased in May of 2010.

"I was tempted by the iPad 2 but I thought I'd wait for a later model," he said.

"I think I'll wait until it's available here though, I'll leave the queuing up to the younger crowd."
