Is anyone interested in meeting up at the West Towne Mall store?

i'm going to wait until DOIT gets it in because i think they will offer it at a lower edu price than apple. they did with iWork '08 but i didn't figure that out until i had already purchased from apple.

I doubt the crowd will be that big, so I don't think I'll head over until around 5:00 though

I shall be there. I work in the mall, so I plan on heading over around 2pm and getting in line. Really just want to go for the experience of it all.

Yeah, it should be a great time. Unfortunately, I have a test at 2:25 so I probably wont' be getting over there until around 4 or later.

Just pre-ordered mine at DoIt Tech store for 69 bucks plus tax. I believe you can pre-order it from them online too, but you need to be in the UW system obviously to get the discount.

I asked if they would be getting it Friday and when I could come pick it up and she really didn't know, she just told me I would get an email when they got it and I could come get it. Maybe Monday? I am okay with that for the discount, plus I am out of town till Monday so it's cool.

Can't wait!

So what time is everyone getting there? I plan on 2-ish. Are we supposed to wear MR nametags as well?

I thought about going to the store just for fun, I still haven't gone since it has opened, but I pre-ordered it from Apple and it will arrive Friday, most likely before 6. I've already done my waiting this year for the iPhone, but the Leopard t-shirt almost makes it worth it.

the doit tech store on campus said they wouldn't start selling theirs until monday 10/29 as it is being released at 6PM on Friday and they close at 5PM. Very well worth the wait over the weekend to get it for $69!!! :)

Well, only 6 hours to go. I'm not sure how we're going to recognize who's from MacRumors, so FYI, I'm about 6'3" with brown hair and I'll be wearing a brown "I'm not lucky, I'm good" t-shirt.

Guys, you could buy it at the Apple store today and install it, and when you pick up your DoIT copy, just return that one to the Apple store. Granted, it's not the best morals...but eh, Leopard a couple days early is tempting.

I got there around 4pm, and there was only a few people waiting, and one person in line. By 6pm it was pretty full. Waiting in line went by really fast, seemed like we just talked the whole time.

The best part was that the first guy in line was waiting to buy an iPod of all things!

I really had a good time.
