    What time are you guys picking up? Obviously I received my pickup status at 5:45am after ordering at 3am EST.

    My local best buy is opening at 8 and that's where I am right now ## I'm so excited to dump my 3rd gen launch iPad, it's become such a slug now

    Sort of wondering the same thing. Sure it may vary by location, but now it seems my stores still have every model available for pick up today. So it seems hard to see why personal pick up would be so much faster and not clogged as well.

    I did in store pickup at the Grand Central NYC Apple Store. I figure I'll either be fine, or totally screwed. I won't get there until 7:45am. My hope is that everyone is waiting for the retina mini and I'll just walk in like I own the place, get my iPad and walk out.

    If you have the confirmation, NoW! Theyve already set it aside for you.

    The reason I asked here in Connecticut people are so enthusiast.. I remember there is always 2 lines. For pickup and the other for those who are taking chances

    iPad air looks like a breaking record compare to ipad 4 or previous gens

    I went. Pre-orders skip the line outside the Apple store. Still about a half hour line inside the store. This is the Grand Central store in NYC. I got it. Its sweet!

    I ordered at 3:00 a.m CST and received an email for order pickup at 8:00 a.m. I was in and out in 10 minutes. I say now is the best time. My local Apple Store (Knox Street) Dallas was more than prepared.

    I went around 10 AM. No line for either personal pick up or walk in. Pick up took maybe 25 minutes, as they had people running back and forth to get stock. Some people were irritated, which made no sense to me. Having waited in line for half a day for the iPad 3, this was awesome.

    Stopped at my local Apple Store around 8:10AM with the email confirmation that my order was ready for pick up. There were probably 8 people in line for store purchase and I was the only one with an online pick up. Got in and out of the store in 5 minutes. They had plenty inventory.

    I hit my local Apple store around 12noon for my online pick-up. Was in and out even with time taken getting my Air set up since this is my first one. The gal helping me said it would get clogged later in the day which makes sense with people getting off work. Glad I went when I did. Not too early & got some sleep after getting to bed around 1:30am.
