I know Jax is close but IMO - Best Buy might sell one. Anyone knows?

According to the Apple rep at the Best Buy in Orlando, FL I spoke to tonight...they will have it...probably only ONE copy though...:p

I'm thinking about going to the JAX store, although I'm 2 hours away. With the price of gas though I'm not sure it is worthy it, especially since they are barely knocking anything off for education buyers. They have been offering it to education buyers for $69 for a long time now. What the heck is up with the $116??? Especially since Amazon is selling it for $109.

I was joking, but Best Buy does stupid stuff a lot of times, so I would not be surprised if they really did have only ONE copy.

Im still deciding if I want to get Leopard. I have that $100 from the iPhone so I might just use it and get it.

Hopefully Leopard will make our Mac Pro less buggy. A free t-shirt would be nice too. :cool:

I'm planning to be there. I was heading to Costco and Dick's anyway after work. Besides, I want the t-shirt (gotta be one of the first 500). I somehow don't think this will have the crazy lines that the iPhone had, but I could be wrong.

Be there or be square! T Shirts from the mother ship and lots of Mac Heads
all around. Sounds like a party on the que! Being in Jacksonville, and with the big Florida-Gerogia football game this weekend, we should be grilling on the sidewalk. Maybe a new thing for us all ,Apple iBar-B-Q Release TailGate Party. I can smell the ribs now!

No line?

Excellent. Maybe I'll shoot for 6 after all. I have non-Leopard business to do. Namely purchasing a MBP.

So all you Leopard nerds better not get in my way. I'll steal your t-shirts.
