Well, I'm in South Orange County, but I guess may as well start a thread...I don't see one yet for us anyway This is my first line-up experience for an Apple product (btw, sorry if this is premature as the iPad hasn't even been announced officially yet). I'm still debating whether or not to go to a Best Buy or an Apple store. In terms of Apple stores, I know South Coast Plaza doesn't let you line up prior to the mall opening. Does anyone know about Fashion Island or the Irvine Spectrum? I'm pretty sure you can line up cause those are "outdoor" malls. Spectrum is closer to my home, but I wouldn't mind going to Fashion Island...depends on which one is bigger I guess. For Best Buy, I'm gonna just put it on the one by South Coast (at Metro Pointe). Trust me on this one, do not go to the BBY in Irvine (well, it's on Lake Forest Drive, just off the 5). Jamboree BBY (at The District) is really, really, reallllly small, so I doubt they'll have much stock. Mission Viejo might be a possibility...but the Costa Mesa BBY (South Coast/Metro Pointe) is definitely the largest in the area...there's a Pacific Sales and Magnolia in store and it is huge. Any OC vets care to share their experiences/recommendations? Actually, can anyone approximate how many iPads a store gets on average? I'm worried Apple stores might be too popular Cheers!
