They'll also be taking any questions you have about the tablet and Apple as an investment. Make sure to set a reminder to come back to Fool.com this Wednesday for all your iPad 3 news and analysis!

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Motley Fool technology and media analyst Andrew Tonner and consumer-goods analyst Austin Smith discuss emerging trends in technology.

In today's edition, Andrew weighs in on whether he thinks Apple still looks like a buy. The company's been on an absolute tear this year, already having risen nearly 35% in 2012. However, it still looks cheap in most regards, despite being the world's largest company. Listen in as Andrew explains why he thinks Apple is still a resounding buy even on the eve of the expected announcement of the iPad 3.
