Not if this list is anything to go by!

I've got a 16gb WIFI coming via TNT on the 28th that my mum is kindly waiting for while i go to meadow hall with a friend to buy his.

I really dont think that there will be much of a queue, but if there is, just ask people if they're from macrumors and we can let eachother jump into the line;)

What time are you planning on getting there for? Meadowhall opens at 9:00am...

I think I'll be there about 9am-ish. I'm trying to play it cool and not appear too keen, but in reality I want to start queuing now!

I don't understand what is going on with the opening time. Meadowhall itself doesn't usually open its doors till 9am, so will meadowhall open early just for apple at 8am?
If i'm wrong please correct me.

I'm 27... Full grown adult getting giddy like a 5 year old... So you know it's me, I'll be wearing a Futurama t-shirt, unless it's dirty, in which case I won't be.

The doors used to open quite early near Marks and Spencer. I used to park near there and walk through to get the train.

I'm 34. WIll I be the oldest in the queue?

What's everyone getting, I'm guessing that there will be more of the 16GB than 64GB. I want 64GB WiFi but I'll settle for a 32GB on the day, if I can't get one.

I'm aiming for the 64GB WI-FI but will settle for the WI-FI + 3G, I have alot of digital copy films so I really could use the large disk space.

I'm going for the 64GB wifi too, I don't really wanna go for any other version. but in the excitement of it all i may get the 32GB if the 64 is out of stock.

I'm a 35 year old girl, think I'm going to the oldest queuing! I'm going to bluewater to get mine, just looking at the other treads to see what time people are queuing from.

It looks like my friend and I will be the youngest there, we're both 16.

We're planning on picking up one 16GB WIFI+3G

Thanks for the tip about M&S by the way, thats where we will be going!

Damn you lukefinch! lol Congrats.

I'm just hoping tomorrow will be fairly easy and not akin to the opening of Saving Private Ryan.

Looks like I will now be coming alone since my friend bailed out on me... :(

Do you think me getting there for 7am is too late?

I've been thinking about that too. I really have no idea when is sensible to go. I called Meadowhall and the woman on the phone said that the Oasis entrance would be open at 7 for staff, so I guess it's a good time.

Phew, 33 (although I lie and say 29) so not the oldest there.

I'll be the geek wearing my 'geek' t-shirt :)

My arrival time is a closely guarded secret :D (but I'll be up even before myu 4 month old :( )


Queuing up for a product I've pre-ordered but won't arrive in time is bad enough. Thinking about what I'll be wearing has driven me to the edge :D
