    Just wanted to start this thread for the Apple Store in UTC.

    Thinking about it... It's super close to my work. It's always a toss up between UTC and Fashion for Apple iDevice launches. Fashion = bigger store = more stock.

    Also condider Fashion = bigger crowd = longer line = longer wait.

    I usually goto UTC or North County for launches. UTC ran out of iPhone 3g's but otherwise I've been out of the store within 15min after sales start.

    If you don't get an iPad at the UTC store there is a best buy down the street.

    Good point. Chances are a bit better if you manage to get in early.

    Last year, three weeks after launch... lines were still forming in the mornings. I was at UTC and they had ~25 iPads with 50+ people in line. Nabbed #23.

    I have a feeling its not gonna be as bad due to pre-orders this year... but you'll never know.

    Wondering if a line has already formed at UTC... doubt it.

    Still debating if I should get one or not! :confused:

    If I do decide to... I'll be at UTC... with thread updates!

    There was like 4 people infront of the store @ 4 or 5.

    Ah! Of course.

    Looks like I'm skipping this one. Good luck to everyone lining up... stay warm!

    With constructions going on at UTC, it's gonna be more crowded than usual. Good thing Apple allowed pre-orders this time around.
