Apple wants to make sure we don't forget that their magical and revolutionary new iPad hits US Apple Retail Stores and select Best Buy big boxes this Saturday, April 3. and they've brought along a quote from Steve Jobs just to show they're serious:

“iPad connects users with their apps and content in a far more intimate and fun way than ever before,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We can’t wait for users to get their hands and fingers on it this weekend.”

And if you still aren't convinced, they want to make sure you know you'll get your experience's worth:

Apple retail stores will offer a free Personal Setup service to every customer who buys an iPad at the store, helping them customize their new iPad by setting up their email, loading their favorite apps from the App Store, and more. Also beginning Saturday morning, all US Apple retail stores will host special iPad workshops to help customers learn more about this magical new product.

TiPb wants to remind you we have a complete iPad preview, a "should you buy and which version" guide up, and an iPad discussion forum going just in case you've still got questions...
