If you live any where near COLLEGE PARK, MD...

Hey guys if you live any where near College Park, MD there's absolutely NO line right now outside of the Best Buy near University of Maryland, so if you get here now you're guaranteed one.

Really? Well, there still isn't a line. Yesterday the guy told me to get here early because there would be one but it's no one out here but me. Maybe everyone's going to Apple stores and not thinking about Best Buy.

It's really not that surprising because BB's allocation is always a guessing game and recent iPad launch history says you have one good shot so you have to pick one store. Going to Apple is a no brainer for the risk adverse, which most people are. Certainly those that risked going to BB this time got rewarded handsomely -- no waiting plus $10-15 in RZ bucks.

BB was insanely empty and well stocked in both wifi and 4g models. I don't see why people don't go to authorized sellers more often than dreading a 100+ people line at the Apple store. I'm not complaining, hey I got an iPad around 5 minutes after BB opened. I arrived around 8:30 too.
