    This thread is for Dallas and the surrounding metroplex (Southlake, Plano, Frisco, etc.) Anyone planning on going to a particular location? I wonder how Best Buy and Wal-Mart will handle the launch.

    I was in line for the iPhone 4 last June at Stonebriar Mall in Frisco at 11pm. They kicked everybody out (disbursed the line) at something like 2am that morning. Talk about a disaster! I really hope security and Apple have a better plan arranged this time! I'm thinking I may try to get off work early and get in line at around 1:00pm

    I'm assuming lines won't be as crazy as iPhone lines an I also don't see shortages either...

    Southlake

    I'm thinking leaving work early on Friday and heading to the Southlake store will be a fun way to start off my weekend. I'm also hoping this isn't as crazy as an iPhone launch. I don't think it will be.

    I noticed today that someone is already in line at the Knox Henderson store. They had a tent setup.

    I think I am giving up on Best Buy, because I can't find anything suggesting they will have white available on friday.

    Stonebriar

    I will head over to Stonebriar about 415. Meeting until 4, then head over after. If they don't have what I want, then Best Buy. Of course still debating on which model to buy, but that's for another thread!

    Northpark or Knox.

    :apple:

    Why wait outdoors (Knox) when you can wait indoors (Northpark)?

    I'll probably head over around 4 and if there's a long line I'll order on the website. As much as I'd love to have another iPad (original was lost) I'm not ready to do another line like I did during the iP4 launch!

    It is supposed to be a high of 70 and sunny all day friday, why wouldn't someone want to spend some time outside with that nice of weather.

    I'm sick of waiting in lines all night outside....

    Has anyone else experienced fights breaking out and stuff? It's crazy...everytime I have done this people would drive up and flame us...eventually getting into physical fights with us..its crazy.

    Considering just going to target really early and trying to get one :D

    With all these places selling the iPad 2 (Apple Store, Best Buy, Target, Walmart) I really wonder if there will be much of a line at all.

    I live a minute away from Stonebriar but I seriously dislike that mall. I'll be at Willow Bend around 4:30!

    I really dislike ALL malls, but Friday I will have to suck it up. It will be a game time decision between WB and SB.

    Fort Worth Anyone?

    No one has mentioned the Apple store in Fort Worth... could mean good things for me! I plan on scoping it out around noon... stocked with school work and snacks!
