Last year I walked into my local HMV store an hour before the 5pm launch of the iPad 2. I was 3rd or 4th in a line of about 10 and I picked up an iPad 2 (the SKU i wanted) without a problem. I also collected store card reward points. Meanwhile a few hundred meters away thousands of people had been queuing for days outside the Apple Store with their tents and fold up stools. The next day being Saturday, I was in town and lo and behold, quite a few of Apple re-salers had plenty of available iPad 2 stock. I almost picked up a second one. Meanwhile the queue outside the Apple store had got a little shorter but people who had been there for days were still there. So my question, those who are planning to buy the iPad 3 on or close to launch day, where are you planning to pick one up?
