That's my plan as well - here's hoping. Thinking optimistically there should be good stock based on previous releases, and there hasn't been nearly as much hype about this.

Considering it..

Based on other launches, when is the best time to get down there if you want to be away by 10am?

Depends, if its like the iPhone 5 launch then u'd wanna be there at 6.00am or so. If it's like the other iPad releases, you might be safe with 8am. I've not idea what the demand is going to be, but safe to assume it won't be as high as the iPhone 5.

I'm going to scoot up after work tomorrow at 5pm to give it a shot. My online order won't be here until the 15th and that's doing my head in!!!

I actually reserved one at PC World in Lisburn so I won't need to make a trip to the Apple Store.

Seems they have all sizes and colours in stock
