    I am! I figure with launch on a Friday they'll have enough in stock to last the weekend since they wouldn't be able to get more until at the earliest Monday.

    Prob be a line but not terrible since it's a suburbs store on a weekday rush hour launch

    Thoughts? Anyone else going?

    Black or White? I was set on black but now leaning white, may have to see in person

    so I think the tax rate is 10%? I'm in champaign, no apple store here, sadly... hopefully I can get to an apple store by 3pm, but still haven't decided which one to go..

    9.75% yeah basically 10. Ordering online I think you only pay 7.5% state sales tax (ABSURD) but if I tried to drive to a lower sales tax Apple store they might sell out. Oh well, I've saved enough to cover taxes anyways.

    I'm coming here after work (work downtown until 5) so hopefully they'll still have some by the time I get here. My wife and I are trying to get each other one for our anniversary.
