That's it exactly. This particular store has been telling people to check back the next day around 11:00am. I guess that's when they get their FedEx deliveries. The problem is that my friend can't get there until late afternoon and the store refuses to reserve any. It's first come, first serve.I'm glad I ordered mine online then, considering I live in New Jersey. That's odd that they sell out almost immediately, not to mention a little impossible. Unless people are lining up outside the store waiting for it to open to buy the new imacs, which I highly doubt.
Maybe it's the time you're getting there? Call in sick to work and get there bright and early.
