    Anyone else going to the Clarendon Apple Store?

    I'm pretty sure I'll be heading there, but I'm also considering going to Tysons Corner. Any guesses on which store will have a shorter line?

    I will be at Clarendon, arriving sometime in the morning.

    I'll have a TouchArcade shirt (and bells) on. See you there.

    I'd assume Tysons will have the longer of the two lines.

    Have you given any thought to the Fair Oaks location? Just curious. I have no idea what the line there would be like.

    No, I love the Clarendon setting. It's actually a shade farther than Pentagon City, but I don't want to sit in a mall all day. And it looks like no rain tomorrow, but clouds.

    The Clarendon location is definitely "my store."

    Yeah, Clarendon is certainly a more 'scenic' location.

    Thanks and keep upated

    Clarendon is my choice to and also stuck at work. But can leave early if/when the line starts getting close to long. Please keep us folks stuck inside updated so we know when to call it quits at work. Thanks.

    There's a handfull of people with backpacks wandering around in the Apple Store, but no proper line or big crowd.

    Okay I think I'm headed out to clarendon..seems like the better in terms of waiting between pentagon city and there. My first time doing this so I'm just not sure. Pentagon city is closer but I don't want to be cooped up all day.

    It's kinda cold out here. I'm in the B&N still -- not sure when I'll go over to the Apple Store. I keep peeking out to see if there's a proper line.

    Planning to meet some friends for lunch, so will pop away for a little bit after 12.

    There's about 50 people in line now. It's really spiked in the last 30 minutes.

    Fairfax here, Fair Oaks mall, about 100 people as of 1:45. Fair Lakes is where I will try, Best Buy/Target/Wal-Mart no lines, but not sure how "limited" their stocks are.

    Line is at least 75 now... Almost to B&N for those familiar with the area. That's not including people saving spots.

    Ricky, how about the price of the iPad you're going to get?
