Are you going to pre-order or goto a store on release day?

    Just as the subject says! I camped out at the local Apple store for 12 hours to get my iPhone 5. I thought it was going to suck but it was actually a great experience! I could stay up til 3 but... I think I'm just going to get it from a local store. Either the Apple Store on release day. And if I do that, I can almost guarantee that I'll leave with something like a Mac Mini too. Or, maybe just try my luck at the local Target or Walmart.

    How about you?

    Pre-ordering online at 3am EDT. I did that with my iPhone 5 as well. Was delivered early morning on launch day. Couldn't be happier. No need to get up early and fight a crowd :).

    Pre-order, I refuse to stand in a line like that for anything.

    Last time was when my daughter was 5 and wanted some crazy toy and I stood in a line at KB Toys at 3AM on Black Friday, got up to the counter and they were sold out. After that, no thank you.

    I don't think it will be lines for this event, not like it's the iPhone. I did go to the store day of Iphone launch it was crowded and atmosphere was great but no lines and most in there to order or browse.

    I have never waited in a line at an Apple store before so I think this will be a fun experience. Especially since I think there will be enough stock to get one

    And the Winner is . . .

    I pre ordered. The nearest Apple Store is a 40 minute drive. Even if I lived in the same city I think I'd still pre order. I did the Apple Store launch thing with my iPhones (when I lived in the same city as the Apple Store was located). It was fun but not sure if I'd like to do this again.

    While I would actually like to go to an apple store on a launch day (for the atmosphere); its at least one and a half hours drive for me and as I work all night its not really practical.

    Pre-order is enough (does mean I will not get to bed on the 2nd until Mr Postman arrives)-- that probably actually means I'll wait for the postie with mugs of coffee in either hand; and then spend the rest of the day bleary eyed to play with my new toy.....)

    Pre-ordered. I don't have the time or desire to stand in line.
