    Wow I can't believe these lines a week after launch. Good luck, I hope at #5 you get the model you want. Also don't let any linejumpers in at the last minute.

    One guy cheated and used the service entrance to get in the mall early, but he was booted to the end of the line.

    I didn't get one. They only had 16g, and the only 3g was Verizon. Im just gonna order online.

    just wondering why was he booted to the end of the line? Was because he used the service enterance? Because I haven't seen apple employees care about how you get in the line; including if you cut. just wondering.

    Sorry man. I feel your pain. Going to try tomorrow morning which should be worse as its a weekend. I want a white 16 or 32 wifi for the wife.

    I foresee a problem as the mall has multiple entrances, so I suspect once the doors open people run? :confused:

    Yup, Apple guy Said we'd have to take a vote on if he got to stay there, lol.

    Yes, it was because he used the service entrance that clearly said Employees only.

    Here at least it's been very orderly. The Apple store is right by an entrance, and security only unlocks one set of doors to be used.

    Help!

    Hi. I leave in Brazil and I'm going to NY next monday. How difficult is it to buy an Ipad2 in the apple store at 5th ave? How long I'll have to wait in the line? I would like to buy 32g only with wi-fi. Any tip? Tks for the attention.

    You'd have better luck if you were going to Hong Kong next Monday.

    Hate to say it, but it will take a miracle for you to get an iPad in NYC.

    NYC is the worst. Forget about Apple Stores. Organized scalpers sleep out in front of those.

    Actually if you're from Brazil will the Verizon model work for you there? Brazile is CDMA too right? If so, those are MUCH easier to get than the aT&T models. Still sucky in NYC though.

    Poster clearly says 32gb wi-fi only. They don't want a 3G model.

    Lucky. I'm still waiting... Many of us are.
    Why is it still sealed though?

    In the worst case scenario, you can always choose to buy one from the organized scalpers if you cannot get one from the Apple store. Good luck. :)

    I really hate buy things from scalpers, even here in Brazil. But, just in case, anybody knows how much is an ipad2 32gb wi-fi only with those "organized scalpers"? Is that legal in USA? Is it easy to find them?
