I plan on dropping by after work (right around 5) to see how crazy the line is.
While I'd love to buy from the Boylston St store, if it's too crazy I may go try Cambridgeside where I can hit up the Apple Store or Best Buy all in one place (and out of the potential rain).
I'll definitely be checking back here on Friday afternoon to see if anyone has posted about the line...
i'll be heading to the boylston store since i live about half a mile from there. any ideas what time you guys are planning on going given the forecast for certain rain? i'm hoping that diverts people to southside or the galleria.
also PAX East starts tomorrow, so that may drag in more people than usual.
I'm one of those ******s who will be taking his chances right at 5 (when I can get out of work). If the Boylston St line is too crazy, I'll try Cambridgeside.
If it's too crazy there I'll suck it up and purchase from *gasp* BestBuy.
Thanks for the heads up about PAX East. I'll definitely check with you guys here before committing to Boylston St (I work a few T stops from it).
As of 10:30 this morning, there's a line of 5 sad souls standing in the rain outside the Apple Store on Boylston St. I'll try to get a photo next time I walk by. Planning to go over myself and join the line around 3 or 4.

So I just got in line. At about 3, I'm halfway to newbury st. on Fairfield. This is nuts! I asked the apple guy here if they have enough and I just got "not sure, but if you want one definitely stand in line". I'm gonna be really pissed if I stand here for 2 hours and not get one.
