    Hi,

    Has the Apple Store stopped accepting orders through local stores? It may just be me, but I cannot seem to reserve on line - was it always like this or have they stopped it?

    I haven't seen anyone else mention this. What is the point of failure you are hitting? I remember some people mentioning problems with the Apple site not populating the stores list after you select your state in the drop-down, that was a while ago though.

    Edit: I notice you list your location as the UK; where are you trying to pre-order from? I don't think EU pre-orders are up yet.

    You can still reserve. However the drop down menu with the stores took a long time to load so at first I thought it only had the "Find the nearest store with our Apple Retail Store Locator" link.

    I am still a bit nervous about the in-store pickup...I only reserved mine a few days ago and was wondering the same thing.

    I haven't been able to preorder one since they made it available. It might be my browser, I haven't looked into it much. When I click my state (Pennsylvania) The store dropdown just says "select a store" and never populates with local apple stores. I placed an order online and I think I can wait an extra few hours for the delivery and not have to worry about not getting one when I go to sleep next Friday night :D

    I can confirm that it definitely doesn't work in Chrome... I was freaking out on the 12th for a few minutes until I switched to IE (work computer).

    Thats what holidays in the USA are all about - buying new technology and showing off when I get back home! Will try Safari now...


    ...and now works. Saves me being grumpy for a couple of weeks. I suspect that my wife would kill me if she knew why we are on holiday a few weeks before we intended!

    I just preodered today. Can't this feature be abused heavily? I got a confirmation email and I'll be there about an hour before opening, I'm guessing that will help guarantee me a device
