    I might. If I do, it'll be Crabtree.

    Preordered

    I would come to this one, but I already pre-ordered. I live near Greensboro so it's a bit of a drive anyways

    As it turns out, I will be going with a friend to Southpoint because she wants to get a copy of leopard!

    This is the first launch of anything that I have been to a retail store for. Any suggestions on when to get there to wait in line for a free t-shirt? Say 5:00?

    I was at southpoint two years ago when Tiger was released. The line didn't start to get long until the late afternoon.

    Well, I was referring to 5:00 pm, which is only an hour before the Leopard release at 6:00 pm. Think that's safe enough?

    If I didn't have to work and knew I could get there, I'd definitely show up, especially for the free T-shirt (assuming I'd be able to get one).

    I pre-ordered right when the store came back up with Leopard available, so I should have it Friday anyway... can't wait!

    I'll drop by Crabtree on the way home from work just to see how things are shaping up, but I'll probably wait a month of so before picking up Leopard.

    ...first in line.... its the only way. :)

    Safe enough to get a copy of Leopard yes. But, as for being close to the front of the line.. I doubt it. Here is a photo I took when Tiger was released:

    That will give you a heads up of how long the line will be. :)

    Fortunately for us, we were the FIRST ones in line:

    (thats me on the Left in the front with my arms crossed)

    We plan to be the First in line again this year... maybe we will see you there.

    wow! looks awesome :)

    I guess I'll just show up after work and hang around the mall until the line starts. I already pre-ordered my copy of leopard, I'm just saving a spot in line for my friend who is buying it. Plus I want a leopard t-shirt!! :)

    Maybe I'll see some macrumors people there! I'll be one of the people waiting in line for leopard :p
