    My two closest Apple stores had none. This makes me wonder if a Best Buy or AT&T might have some? Did you get a 128GB Air today? Where?

    c'mon man, you've been around here long enough to know that some dude in Arizona's local AT&T stock doesn't mean squat in the next town or state or your location.

    less typing here, more picking up the phone and calling your local options!

    Regional Apple authorized dealer predominantly in Atlanta/Tampa area called PeachMac. Walked right in at 8 am after they opened, was the only one in the store, bought a 128GB wifi only model in space grey and was out in 5 min. So much easier than dealing with any crowd at my local Apple Store.

    Reserved my verizon 128GB at 3:20AM on Apple's site. Picked up at 8:20AM from the closest of 3 Apple Stores. The guy running the line outside the store for people who didn't pre order said the 128GB models sold out quick and I was lucky to have reserved it.

    EDIT: also they are unlocked so look at verizon and tmobile models too.

    Wow, didn't think that store actually sold the hardware.
    I may need to check it out.
    They have one in my area.

    I ordered my 128 G Verizon, at midnight for in-store pickup. This option is no longer available at any of the stores in Orange County, California.

    128gig wi/fi Air

    I ordered mine at 2:30am and got the ready for pickup email at 5:30am. I went to the local Apple store at 8:00am and I was the first one in line for the (on line order/in store pick up). There were 4 people in line and 6 to 8 people being serviced in the store. They had bagels and cream cheese and coffee for everyone. They had about 40 employees working, with line barricades all set up. I think they had lots of Airs. My process was great. In and out in 5 minutes.

    Everything but iPhones. The store close to me is in a mall and does a pretty good job of mimicking the Apple store experience. Bought a few pieces of hardware from them and had very pleasant experiences both times.

    Ordered online. Then got email saying it will be in store on the 4th.

    Went to store, and just bought one. 128gb even though the online said they were now out of them.

    Yes, every store will be different. Supply and demand.

    Fairview Mall @ Lunchtime

    5 minute lineup, no hassles. Only issue was there were no 128gig lte models.

    Ordered on line last night and picked up at my apple store today. The rep said that they received very few 128gb models.

    I stopped into the Apple Store Polaris Fashion Place here in Columbus, OH and picked up a 128GB Space Gray Wi-Fi only at around 9AM (which was about an hour after they opened). I tried doing the personal pickup before I went to the store but it said that it wasn't available to be picked up today at either of the Apple stores by me. But when I got to the store they had one. Makes me think they didn't hold a lot for personal pickup for today at least.

    preordered for in-store pick up space gray 128 AT&T at 00:01, received pick up email at 06:37; picked up at 13:30.

    Showed up at Pasadena, CA store, rep said all 128 sold out, only allocated to those who preordered. Any walk-ups wanting 128GB will be OOL.

    Ordered at 3am for store pickup. It was available at 8am. My husband picked it up at 8 am and was in and out in 10 minutes. They were sold out an hour later & shipping was the only option. Love this iPad!!!!

    Ordered 128gb ATT space gray at 3am ET for pickup at Tyson's Corner since Reston was listing not available. Still showing as 'processing' at 5:30pm. Since guests are showing up in 30 minutes I guess that means I'll be stuck waiting for tomorrow. Feeling like I should have waited for Monday delivery. I had assumed when ordering I would get one from already in store stock but it appears apple overcommitted.

    Wow. Either Apple decided not to make a lot of 128GB, or they are HOT. All local Best Buys in Tampa sold out of the cellular, Apple Stores had up to 64GB, AT&T stores had only 16GB. Arrrrrgggghhhhh...
