I'm planning on being there in the early afternoon, I don't want to risk missing out on an iPad. What kind of things do they allow on the Gateway? Can I bring a power strip/extension cord to set up some electronics, I couldn't find any information on the website. How many people are going to show up?

Gotta have the New iPad

Hey guys, does anyone know how many iPads Gateway or Fashion Place are going to have? I wish I had the option of camping out and would love too, but just can't. I want an iPad and I am willing to show up early Friday morning, do you think that line would be shorter at Gateway or Fashion Place? And if I showed up at like 5, do you think I would have a chance of getting one?
Thanks

I want to go around noon Thursday but I don't think my schedule will allow it. I'll be there by 6:00 p.m. Thursday for sure though. I plan on bringing everything I usually do, like extension cords and power strips, probably just one of each. I went to Costco today and picked up a bunch of snack food that'll bring and be willing to share with people, for a small fee of course. If someone brought a microwave oven that might be the greatest thing ever. I would bring more food also.

Probably be there around 7 pm Thursday.

I also just moved in at the apartments at the gateway so if you bring something that needs to be cooked I'm happy to help out. If I can score some food of course. Ha

We could also plan a massive pizza order, just have everyone bring a little cash.

Great line experience! My first line ever -- I've never even waited in a Star Wars line. Thanks to everyone. See you next year.
