    I'm waking up at 3 am! I usually get up at 5 am, so it's not a big difference for me.

    Yes. I have class at 11:00 the next day, so not a big deal for me.

    I usually wake up at 7 for class, so I figure if I go to bed early thursday night, I can wake up at 3, try to get an iPad for an hour and then go back to bed at four and sleep for 3 more hours.
    Pre orders start on friday at 301 ET, or thursday?

    Not unless Steve Jobs rings my door bell and delivers me a new IPad 2. ;)

    I've got Friday off of work (leaving for a snowboard trip), so I'll wake up around 3AM to see if I can get my order in before I leave.

    Now that would be cool. "What's this Steve Jobs impersonator doing at my door" (slams door)

    Whats the point? It's not going to ship to you any faster...If you want to get one asap, just try an apple store or a bestbuy on Friday

    You're assuming we go to bed at normal hours.

    I don't believe they will sell out before I get up at my regular time and order. It won't get shipped any faster if I order it at 2 am rather than at 6am.

    I doubt it will sell out, but I'm always on the cautious side. :D If it's sold out at 3 or 4 am (when I'll order), then there's nothing I could have done. However, if it was sold out at, say 5 or 6 am, I would be kicking myself so much because I didn't get up earlier.

    Does anybody know when the iPad would arrive if I ordered online?

    Most likely Monday, 14 March.

    It appears a number of retail stores will have the iPad 2 in stock on Friday after 5. There's no point in being around at 3:01 AM to order an iPad IMO.

    I'm almost positive my local Best Buy will have enough stock. I'm one of those impatient people who doesn't want to wait for it to be delivered.

    I do have fond memories of staying up all night for iPhone launches, though. :eek:

    But.... no. I'll be getting my beauty sleep. :p

    I'm usually up at 4:30 am anyway so getting up at 3:00s not that big of a deal. Plus I have no desire to go to the Apple store or BB on Friday. There probably wouldnt be an issue if I just ordered it at 4:30 but getting up early adds some thrill to it.

    I don't have school the next day so I will probably stay up. If I don't get it I'll go to the store.

    No class on Friday, so if pre-orders are actually made available at 3AM then I will stay up. Otherwise, I'm just going to bed because I want it on Friday.
