So I just waited from 3-8, only to find out that even the guys who showed up at 12:30 didn't get one (Palo Alto had very limited supplies, and this is Apple's flagship store in Silicon Valley). Thus, I have a proposal for those of you still considering a search starting next week: Team up. Apple allows you to buy two iPads, so why not show up at 9:30 and split the time between two people. If you both go in knowing you'll take whatever they've got, you have a pretty solid chance of both getting something. So anyone considering waiting come next Tuesday, reply with your location, and see if there's another interested party you can work with. It's your best shot at getting an iPad any time soon.
