    Just wondering when people are starting to line up at the westchester mall store or if you're heading to walmart/bestbuy... I think ill swing by around noon to see what the deal is.
    Maybe I'll try walmart if they "accidentally" sell theirs early...

    I may head over during lunch, but won't have time to wait on line. I'm hoping to be able to check out the new iPad. Anyone know if they will be on display before 5pm?

    Ill be there around 3:00 or so.. I'd also like to know what the lines look like, if anybody would be so kind :confused: I'm sure they'll have plenty in stock, I've been there for the original iPhone Launch & the iPhone 4 Launch and haven't had any problems.

    Good stuff... I just talked to a friend who works at this store and he said they've got more than enough iPads to satisfy just about everybody. I'm hoping the line isn't TOO long when I get there @ 3...

    Although it is a very nice crowd here, I dont think that that'd fly to well. Haha sorry.

    Too excited!!

    I'll be there around 4ish- would someone mind updating the line info with rough estimates?
    If you can find the time- that is ;)

    Can't decide whether to head out to the Westchester or the Palisades Park Mall--the reason why PPM sweetens the deal is because of the Invisible Shield kiosk that is no doubt set up right outside that Apple Store!

    I'd guess the mall at the Palisades is a lot longer.

    True...but the Best Buy is there as well--that also sweetens the deal. Last year, when the 3G was released, there were only about 20 people in line with me--I think I'll give it another shot. Either way, good luck.

    I'm guessing 100-120 in the not too distant future - maybe palisades is a good idea but those lines have to be swelling too.
