    Is anyone on this forums going to go to the Buchannan St store in Glasgow for the launch.


    I wonder how the queue will form since you gotta go up a set of stairs maybe the store will sort it out outside with a few tension barriers outside for reservations and people who didnt reserve.

    I can't help you re: your enquiries but where's that picture from? It's not from the Buchannan street side is it :confused:? I don't recognise it.

    Edit: clicked through to some pics. Recognise it now. It looked different in that pic without the view through the windows :)


    p.s. I would love to be in Glasgow for the launch. Absolutely love the place and am keen to return to live there for a while.

    I'm hoping to preorder and have it delivered. But if there aren't any preorders, I may consider coming along to the Store.

    I will be there! Assuming they release the thing in the UK soon and I don't cave and buy via ebay.

    I have been there for iphone launches, they have the queue outside the shop and allow so many people in at a time. Do you think the ipad will be that popular to warrant that though?

    Was planning on going in to Glasgow for the launch, but when I called Apple yesterday to pre-order, I was told the only option was shipping, they aren't offering collections from store on the day.

    I took the day off work, so I'm a little disappointed now, that I have to wait in for Mr UPS instead of being at the store.

    Roll on the 28th.

    Was going to walk down and wait at the Buchanan Street store on 28th but will probably leave it a month and pick one up on hols in San Francisco and save a bit of cash in the process.
