    Since Apple stated they were selling the iPad 2 on 5pm, What time do you think is best to beginning waiting outside the store.
    I figured going around 3:00pm but seeing as how big the iPad is, I may have to go sooner.

    I doubt iPad will sell out on all models. If you are buying 16GB or 32 GB then, you should be at the store around 2-3 PM. If you are buying high end models, then should not worry at all.

    Didn't they have pre orders with store pick up last year and if you didn't get it in time they sold it to someone else?

    You have a point there, considering I might be getting the 16GB Model

    Well it depends on where you live, if there are a lot of apple stores near you a it depends on how big they are. The Opening is at 5pm if I could I would go but I get out of school at 3 and I bet there will be a mile line even then. But that is my apple store. I'll try to go but I doubt it.

    It's fun isn't it?

    I haven't a clue as to whether there will be line, or huge lines, or what. It's hard to predict.

    I guess there might be lines as there's no pre-order (strange)

    What do you think?

    For iPad 3G, I waited 3hrs and got mines at 5:13PM at my local apple store, I was roughly 35 in line, by 5pm there was 103 people in line or so.... and let groups of 20-30 inside, and gave people free waters

    I agree. Go today so you won't have to worry about not getting one.

    Apple Stores probably will have a line because that's where most people will go to by default. Best Buy, WalMart and Sam's Club I don't see having a line, most consumers probably won't even know WalMart, let alone Sam's Club, is even carrying it.

    Same here. If anything, the 16GB should sell out first, but the 32GB is going to be an pretty popular option too. I believe the 64 should be no problem though.

    After doing some search, it turns out there is only 1 Apple Store around my area :eek:

    Looks like I should show up at 1:30pm

    The correct grammar is " it got mine" or preferable I purchased mine

    Actually, there is nothing wrong with his grammar except misspelling "mine".

    When constructing a sentence, it is preferable to end it with a period. :rolleyes:

    I figure if you are wanting to be the grammar police, you should probably make sure your own "stuff" is in gear. Have a nice day.

    I will be getting a 64GB w/ 3G. I wonder if Best Buy and Wal-Mart will be getting the 3G on day 1?

    I ran by a Wal-Mart on iPhone 4 release day and they had gotten ONE phone. That's right ONE. I'm heading to Apple directly.

    What are you talking about???

    His original sentence is just fine, except it should be "mine" instead of "mines"; whereas your suggestion "it got mine" is incorrect. There is no need for the "it" pronoun whatsoever.

    Man, fix your own s*it first. It's got plenty of mistakes of its own. :rolleyes:

    I get off work @ 4 daily and I'll probably just hop on the bus for a 10 minute ride to the Apple store. I may be there for a couple of hours so I'll probably just have my fiance pick me up when I'm done.
