    I'm thinking about it. I was planning on getting there at 3:00, but after seeing the longer wait time on the online orders, I'm getting nervous and thinking 2:00.

    I called yesterday, and they told me that in past iProduct launches, they have run out of stuff after the Apple Store at Somerset did. I don't know how viable this is. They also said they've been getting a lot of phone calls about the launch, so...

    Will you please post anything you find out around lunch? Thanks!

    I talked to one of the associates there yesterday and he said they would be lining everyone for the ipad 2 up by the apple display by customer service as well as having all the accessories out for it on a separate table. He obviously suggested getting there before 4:30. I tried to get him to budge on inventory but he said he didnt know.:rolleyes:

    Awesome, thanks for the update! I think I am going to get there around 2:00. I'm aiming for a 64gb 3G att model, so I hope it will be available! I'll call around 1:00 or so and ask if a line has formed yet.

    As of 1:05, there is no line, and the sales associates seem chipper. I was thinking 2 but I may do lunch and make it 2:30.

    I am inside at the apple display. Last I heard there was only 1 in line and the apple rep at the store said that supply was pretty good but he still expected to sell out

    Got out of the store around 5:30. Easy process except the best buy associates relentless attempts to sell extra things such as the buy back program and black tie protection. Ticket process worked great and got everything i wanted
