We are driving in from Tallahassee early Saturday morning and plan to be in the iPad reservation line at 8am. We camped out for the iPhone 3G launch July 11th 2008 and it was lots of fun talking with all the other fan boys and girls. I have had an iPad on reserve from the moment it was available on the site March 12 and assume I do not need to be in line any earlier. The Apple Store Guinness claim they will have enough for everyone that reserved one. I hope that holds true.

I might even buy an Apple TV or a Mac mini for the living room while I am there. I have been wanting a new Movie player for a while now. But this all depends on how many accessories I buy for the iPad on launch day. Have fun everyone let me know if your out there. Gowalla!!

I will be there bright and early. If you are there by 8am you will be fine. I don't see this line being that bad.

I wanted to reserve, but decided to have it shipped instead. I'm afraid if I cancel my pre-order now and reserve at the Town Center, I might not get it Launch Day :(

If you show up early enough you will get one as long as you reserve it. Even if you don't reserve it and show up early you will get one. As long as they do it the same way they did for the 3GS.

I'll be there later on in the day after my iPad arrives at the house. Then I'll ride up there to get some accessories. :)

We should be there around 8 hope my reserved iPad is still waiting for me. I do not hold out much hope for Best Buy having more than a few today.

Reserve stuff should be there for sure at 8. Only 10 people in rservation line now and 7 in purchases.

Seems they got a lot of iPads. Got my 32 Gb claim ticket. No need for a reservation

What's the line like, if any?

In theory my 32GB is on a UPS truck right now. But if I don't see Brown by 1 or 2, I just might head over and claim my in-store reserved model instead.

Line was moving pretty fast when I went in. But I was 5th in line. Inside is a little disorganized compared to iPhone launches. I don't see to much of a line by 1 or 2.

They ought to just use the Louis Vuitton store for a waiting area :)
