    seriosly no Vancouver thread yet ?


    So what will it be?

    Apple store vs Best buy or Futureshop ?

    I want to go to the Apple store in Pacific centre but am afraid that I won't stand a chance unless I started lining up in the wee hours of morning

    I like the best buy line/ticket system (and I am guessing futureshop will have something similar as well? They did for boxing day)

    so where are you guys going?

    since London Drugs told me they got 16 pre-order and getting just 7 ipad and still don't know which model, i'm going to the Pacific.

    I'm thinking about shifting with my boyfriend, so i don't know at what time lining up since we're just a couple of blocks away from the mall the wake up won't be a problem, but the lining could be, since it won't be inside the mall.

    just an update.. I thought best buy was supposed to be doing the ticket system at 10am ?

    I just called them and I was told that she cannot confirm on any of it .. except that iPads are being released tomorrow

    arrrgh


    no concrete information even though launch is less than 24 hours away?

    sheesh


    apple store @ pacific centre said they are doing ipads at 5 but don't know the quantity/stock ...


    this is so frustrating I should've just gotten the ipad from the states last week or something

    ^^ this is why I will just order online then drive around to see if anyone have a stock then simply cancel my online order.

    Lineup reaches Blenz (Dunsmuir) from the side entrance to the mall (like the iPhone 4 launch). The store was packed, but they are pushing everyone out at 3:00pm.

    Good luck to everyone!
