In a town/city where I live, far away from the main city, (2 hour drive) we are favored to have 1 Best Buy in town, 1 Walmart and 1 Target. No Apple Store here. Interestingly, there is a huge number of apple fans in town and I can see them making lines to get the iPad 2. I recently went to Best Buy and an employee told me that BB, and Walmart are getting only 50 each. That makes 100 iPads for the whole town if Target does not carry them on time. On the 11th, after work, I am hunting for iPad 2. Best Buy will be flooded. I wanted to venture to Walmart... maybe Target or head to our nearest Walmart in another town. Hopefully I will get the iPad. My question is: iPad goes on sale at 12 am on Friday. By the time I hit the stores it will be about 5 pm. Going around in this mission will take me hours. If I don't get it through the night, I will have to go back home to order online. All fine, however, is there a chance that when I return home, Apple online store may have the iPad backordered? I will have then failed my mission. Any thoughts? Preventives? Sound Advice? Thanks.
