The iPad has been a huge hit for Apple since its launch three months ago.

So far, Apple has sold 3 million tablets. It’s still very much a niche product, but it’s an extremely lucrative one.

So who is buying the iPad?

Yahoo has put together a series of charts on the demographics of the iPad, based on visitors to its site.

Who visits Yahoo with an iPad obviously depends on Yahoo’s own demographics as well as those of the iPad, but Yahoo indexes the results to its baseline, offering up a good picture of what the average iPad owner looks like.
