    To all of you who ordered online: Pfffft no one cares. :D lol

    To all of you who are going to wake up early tomorrow to make a mad-dash to the Apple store: Well, who are you, and what's your plan? :)

    Stores here (Arizona, USA) don't open until 10 AM. I'll likely take an early lunch and head over around then to see what the deal is.

    According to the two local stores I called, they are expecting full stock tomorrow morning. :)

    I ordered mine from Apple.com with overnight shipping, it prepared, and shipped, and now shows on FedEx.com as being delivered tomorrow by 10:30 am.

    I plan to sleep in until 10 which is when the first FDX truck comes by normally, haha

    From what I understand, Mac updates have never commanded lines like the iPhone or iPad. I have to work until lunch, so i was planning to be there 12-1230?

    i don't think there's a need to rush, as apple stores seem to have sufficient stock when it comes to notebooks. though, i'm planning to stop by the store again during lunch on friday after i've read enough reviews.

    My question is: is the i7 upgrade version going to be available in store? What do you all think?

    My friend, this is the 'how early are you going to wake up' thread. Not the 'do you think the i7 will be available in store' thread!

    In answer to the OP; I'll be bouncing around outside at 10am, crashing through the door to decide whether to get the 11 or 13.

    As I mentioned in my previous post in this thread, I called two local stores and both indicated that they expect to have full stock tomorrow at opening time.

    There have been many reports today that stores already have them but are not allowed to sell until tomorrow for whatever reason.

    I didn't confirm with a store.

    However I did speak with an Apple representative on their website (with their store chat), and the Apple rep said that Canada would have the Macbook Airs available at their retail stores tomorrow (the 21st).

    I would assume it's the same for most everywhere else.

    I'll be at my Apple Store at 10ish. Waking up? I'd say like 8:30, which is typical for me.

    I'll casually visit because I had one reserved for me from visiting the store the day before. It pays to know people.

    My local store told me they'd actually hold the machine for me, after keeping me there for 40 minutes and then realizing that they couldn't actually sell them yet. However, I'll probably still head over at store opening (10 AM) just to avoid any chance of it not being available anymore (I highly doubt it though). Apple doesn't sell out of any of the Macs in stores. That's much more of an iDevice thing. Most people don't even know there's a difference between these and the old ones, or even that they're released at all.

    Same here (except mine consistently said yesterday that they wouldn't have them in stock until today).

    It's been a mess. Some stores were able to sell a couple. Some stores had them but ended up being unable to sell them due to the new machines not being in the system. Some stores got them but didn't want to bother selling them yet. And some stores simply didn't get them. I wonder if the Lion launch kept Apple so busy that they dropped the ball on getting the MBA sales set up properly.

    the answer to this turns out to be:

    7:01. fascinating isn't it? :D

    seriously, i'm going to buy one today as I cancelled my online order. The store experience is fun ( I do it a lot :D ).

    What isn't fun is the heat, but it's summer right? :)
