    Does anyone know or have a guess if we will be able order on Monday for in-store pick up on the release day? Or is this just preorders for home delivery?

    I don't think this will be a Midnight pre-order.

    I'd say it's a possibility, though I think not. I think this will just be fore delivery, though you may be able to get one on launch day in the store just picking it up, I doubt there'll be huge lines.

    Also, I don't think Apple will state a launch date, which makes it less likely. This feels like the iPad Air 2 launch when they said, 'It'll be available for preorder tomorrow and in stores later next week'.

    My money is on 1pm EST which is when most Apple products except iPhones go on sale.

    Probably midnight but if you wake up and order it before noon i bet you could still get in that first wave.

    With the exception of iPhones and other major new launch pre-orders, new products go on sale at approximately 6:00am PT. That's what time the new iMacs and Magic Accessories hit earlier this month.

    unless supply is severely limited, there is no chance this sells out.

    agreed and they had tons of time to ramp up I would guess dev units are the same. only difference maybe the software.

    I wish there were an app or even a text service that would tell you when they go on sale. Wouldn't it be cool if you could sign up on the Apple web site and as soon as the TV (or other products you are waiting for) go on sale, they send you a text?

    The problem is....services like that are always delayed. They send you a text/email hours later. I know some people run scripts which alert them when the apple store goes down and comes back up.

    If you will be around your computer most of the day you could use an auto refresh extension to see when the store goes down and comes back up.

    You're a probably right. But I am still not messing around with the preorder. Hopefully its not a midnight pst launch and I can order at 5-6am when I get up for work. But I will still open one eye at 3am just to check.

    Don't forget the scalpers. Need doesn't have to be there for an Apple product. Scalpers will always take care of the initial supply and put them on eBay.

    HIGHLY doubt there will be any scalping going on for this product, this will be a very easy product to get

    Didn't the Apple TV 3 sell out on the first day? I seem to recall it did.

    It will depend on how many units apple produced, I'm sure they're ready for whatever the demand will be

    As soon as u let ur guard down u miss out on the first wave. Believe it or not, there wasn't much hype
    As soon as u let ur guard down u miss out on the first wave. And there wasn't much hype for the Apple Watch either.
