I'm guessing you pre-ordered? That might be why you got out so quickI was at our main Apple store this morning. Store opens at 9am, I'm out at 9:15 and was like #80 in line.
They were also servicing walk-ins at 10am.
Easy and fast process. Not sure why people are waiting until afternoon to avoid "the wait."
UPS guy drives up to store at about 8:45am. We all joked about tipping the truck.
