    Wow I thought I had it good. I went to best buy about 3:00 and walked out about 5:30 after browsing through the third party cases first.

    nothing i like reading the stories the day before launch about how people are just gonna stroll into their local store around 4:30 and be able to pick one up talking about they are not going to be sold out like people think they are and then they do get sold out everywhere i dont see those people post anymore

    I got in the line outside So Salt Lake bestbuy @ about 4:20, was about one of the last 5-8 people that got one. Took longer to check out than I stood in line. About 100 minutes total experience. Wanted a 32 wifi, only had 16 left. I think I'll be happy (esp since I have $110 more dollars in my bank account than I planned on spending)

    Walked into Target at 4:53pm... walked out, with black 64GB iPad 2, at 5:03pm. The security guard and cashier were disappointed, they wanted lines and excitement. I wasn't.

    I put off ordering on-line and "rolled the dice" by swinging by Walmart at 4:45pm. If the line was long, I'd bail and order on line.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see only 10 to 15 people - oddly enough all were over the age of 50!!! I was the youngest in line (and Im 44!).

    About 2 hours at Best Buy - 4 to 6 pm. Tickets at 4:30, in at 5, but then a pretty slow process to get us our iPads and out the door. I'm on my new one now, though, so I can't complain. Maybe 50th in line.
