    Wow no one has posted from NE Florida?

    I took the day off and I was planning on going to the Apple store around noon but I'm debating going earlier. I live 35 minutes or so away so it's not easy for me to just swing by to check out the lines.

    Any other NE FL people? I know there are a bunch of NE FL Apple addicts on these boards from past experience :p

    I would have posted earlier, but I'm stuck in Tampa this week!

    I might head to our St Johns Town Center store if I finish early enough here tomorrow. It would be swell if you could keep this thread updated with the scene at the store. :)

    This is the closest apple store to me but it is still an hour away...and I don't get out of work until 5 so I am assuming they will be out by the time I could get up there.

    They might not be out by then. But how about the Best Buy in Daytona??

    If I remember I'll post here what the line looks like and ask the Apple people how much stock they have.

    Has anyone heard if there will be a per person limit on the ipad 2s? I know for Ipad1 you could purchase 2...Hopefully it is the same for this release.

    I might give them a call around 4 and see what is going on. Even Daytona is a 30 minute drive from me and it is the main weekend for Bike Week so I generally like to stay away from Daytona around this time of year.

    If I call at 4 and they don't have a lot of people in line, I might head over there after work. Also, I am not flexible with the model that I want so I think my best bet is just keeping my online order and hopefully getting it by next Friday. I won't have a case or anything until the 22nd or 23rd anyway so it might be better to not pick it up at Best Buy. I am just going to be jealous when people posting from their iPad2s later tonight.

    Yes please. I wasn't planning on going until about noon or so. I'm wondering if that will be a wise decision or not.

    On the bright side if I can't get my iPad 2 today I'm just going to "settle" for a high end 15" MBP :D

    40 people doesn't sound too bad... But I expect it will accelerate after lunchtime.

    I just drove by after visiting compusa and the lube was wrapped around the building. Reminds me of the reserve line for iPhone 4 launch. Everyone waiting in line good luck! Atleast it isn't July heat outside today. Hope you all get what you want!
