    Keystone at the Crossing Hookup thread.

    I plan on being there to socialize with the chit chat. I haven't decided if I will be a store purchaser, yet, or a pre-ordererer.

    I'm wanting to go, but I'm not sure if that'll happen or not. I pre-ordered because there is a chance that some people are going out after work.

    Anyone plan to bring their system with them?

    I'd like to be there too but I have something that I just can't skip.

    Anyway, I pre-ordered on the Apple website.

    So, wait a minute. The store claims that Leopard will be delivered on the 26th. Does that mean that I'll have it before you can get it at the store at 6pm!?!

    I considered going (live in Anderson) but I dont want to fight traffic on 69, then 82nd street at 530pm, not to mention the crowd that will likely be in the store. This was a pre-order for me.

    Looks like I'll be the only one at the Apple store then! More copies for me :p

    @Kvasir
    I planned on leaving work early to fight NE 465 traffic.
    Also, you can bring your systems??

    lol, I'm going to be right there fighting fishers/castleton traffic. :(
    I do everyday anyways.

    I pre-ordered the Family Pack for our 2 PBs. Mini, MBP and my MB.

    It looks like my MUG might be going to Indianapolis instead since it's a much shorter drive.

    I'll be there

    I normally pre-order but this year I decided to pick up a copy at the Keystone Store and hang out with my Mac brethren :)

    I'm taking a half day off work and will be bailing my twin boys out of school a half day to join me, their big Apple fans too. We'll probably arrive at the store about 15 till five after a meal at BD's Mongolian Bar-BQ.

    Cheers, DrPhibes

    AU student

    I'll be there too!

    Getting out of class at 4:15, booking it from Anderson to Keystone and patiently wait with all you fine people!

    I have a few questions:

    I am using my $100 rebate from my iPhone to pay for most of Leopard. Can I still use a student's discount to nock off some more?

    Also, some friends and I are debating the family pack as a group. Thoughts?

    probably they will discount it to like 116$ for the student discount (id bring proof of student-ness if I were you) and then the 100$ apple store card will bring it down to a smooth 16$+tax n stuff


    And if you are going to split it with your friends (eg. family pack) i would have them throw in at least 5$ or something to cover cost and gas

    I can't believe I spaced on a class I teach Fridays at 6pm :(

    I will probably be fashionably late and miss the door prize
    SUX!

    Are all the stores suppose to have the t-shirts, and how many if so?? If I get really bored I might swing down early on that friday, hit Frys and mill around, then get to Keystone well before the rush hour kicks in. Never been to anything like this before, what kind of crowd can be expected, and how early to get there to get a t-shirt?? If I go I essentially am going to buy then return it since I have one on pre-order. I just want that shirt. :D

    I think first 500 thru the door after 6 get a t-shirt. I plan on being there probably around 5:30, thats if I can get my windows using parents to come because they are paying for part of my new MacBook :)

    Space Pope

    Well Fry, the Space Pope might come down from Vatican 5 to visit the party.

    Really though, I'd be coming from Fort Wayne, so it would have to be more interesting than a pile of free shirts. Have to decide soon so I can preorder if I don't come.

    I forget when Frys weekly circulars come out. It's something odd like Wed or Thurs, but the most recent has a spectacular deal on 500GB internal SATA drives for only $94.99. I've been saving a HD bay in MP for Time Machine. If I don't get greedy and wait for a couple of months for 750's and 1T's to come down I just may see you at Frys and jump on the deal of the week for that 500.

    Yes, they have really bizarre sale run dates. I think it typically is thursdays when the new ads are out. I just got this one about 2 weeks ago, partially for Time Machine, partially because my other 2 externals were almost full

    Correct me if I am wrong, but can't time machine only use external drives? I think it's limited to USB and FireWire drives.
