    I was at the Aspen Grove store in Colorado, and my friend that worked there said the manager anounced that he got an email from corporate or something and they said that all of the employees had to work later than normal to unpack a "large multiple product" shipment. I am guessing that is the Jaguar, and it also hinted that there was something other than software boxes, some sort of Hardware, think that this is the new Powermacs? Might be announced tuesday and start shipping and in stores august 24th. Possibility?

    I was just at the Clarendon store and its going to be a very cool event.

    10:20 PM on the 23rd, 100 minutes of free gifts, great savings, theater demos, and the chance to win a Mac Until Midnight at the Apple Store

    I'll be going and hopefully meeting jelloshotsrule there. I can't imagine they'd give a new PowerMac away, more likely the iMac LCD if we're lucky. I asked the employees there and no one seemed to know.

    It will be crazy but I'm going for the chance to win something - even if its an apple shirt.

    Re: August 23rd special Apple Store Event!

    It's true, for sure. All stores. It was discussed in an earlier thread (though it wasn't there wwhen Bill started the thread). You can find more info at Apple's Retail page.

    You going, Bill? I have thought about it, but when I went to Aspen Grove the day it opened (just a few minutes before opening) there was a line around the building. There seem to be a lot of Mac folks around, and I've already pre-ordered 10.2. Not sure that the possibility of winning something is worth the hassle of the crowd...

    I doubt that I will go. That I think will be a friday, the school weekend, and even though I am a big geek, as a normal fifteen year old, i try to keep a normal social life with my friends. LOL, I can't wait to order a copy though, they have it all the machines at aspen grove, I was there today, the new start up screen is pretty viscious!

    I would join you guys at Aspen Grove, but I try to make it a policy of not skipping a whole day of classes until about a month into the year :p

    Too bad, Asurace. That was never my policy. You do know it's 10:20 at night, right?

    Funny, though--of the 3 of us, sounds like none of us will go. I could always change my mind at the last minute, but I doubt it. I'd probably go to the Cherry Creek store if it were open.

    John Lewis in the uk say they are offering "Apple Product Demos" from the 21-28th. Do you think it's the same thing?

    I'll meet u there Tyle... gee i hope no creepy Rasta Man guns up the mall again... roosevelt isnt the best place to be near at midnight...i just hope the idiot security guards dont lock all the doors when the rest of the mall closes.

    I called my apple store today, and they said that they wont find out what comp they're raffling off until 10:10 on the 23rd. Oh and they arent giving any thing away, they're raffling them off, which means you have to pay for each ticket.

    i can't decide if i should go to the Roosevelt Field or SoHo store. i live in Brooklyn so the SoHo store is wicked close but Roosevelt Field will probably have less of a crowd which means better odds at winning some treats;) on the other hand, the SoHo store is awesome and may be a bigger event. hmmm....

    I will be going to the one in Palisades Mall

    I am going to the one in Palisades Mall, NY.. or i can go to the Tice's Corner, NJ.. both are close to each other.. I like Tice's Corner, because its an open Mall.. dont worry about closing the gates of the Mall..

    Anyone going to either of that mall from MacRumors? I will let you guys know if i win a Mac. I missed an opportunity to buy Mac OS X for a discount at Amzaon..so i will be getting mine on 23rd from Apple Store direct.
