So i called best buy and they aren't sure when they are going to be starting pre-orders. But the representive told me that they may open early but it depends on how many orders their store has. She told me that they will sell it at Non commit pricing as long as you have an active line and that even if a FAN is attached to it it wouldn't be a problem activating it. They will also be doing apointments on a first come first service basis. She was pretty cool she gave me her e-mail address too.
