    Would be tough for East Coasters, but here in California I think I might stay up until 1AM local time to see if I order my iPad2 from Apple with expedited shipping, whether I would get it on Saturday or not.

    Usually there is a "delivery estimate" on the bottom based on the shipping method selected. If it says March 12th, I will probably just order online with expedited shipping to avoid the crowds...

    Same for me, early at 5AM. Thats my normal wakeup hour. Based on my past experience, Apple store crashes. :D

    There is a huge Wal-Mart about 2 miles from me, thinking about heading down there and play hardball around midnight, esp after seeing this pic on MR a few minutes ago...:)

    I might be awake at midnight just to see if there are any problems trying to order. I sincerely doubt that if I did order online right away that I would get it on Saturday. The earliest I would see it would be Tuesday or Wednesday of next week, even if I paid for faster shipping. If that is indeed the case, then I will go to my local Apple store at 1 or 2 and see what the crowds are like.

    Good luck "playing hardball". The wouldn't sell you one if you were Babe Ruth. You'll have to wait until 5 like the rest of us.

    i'll be waking up (EST), and hopefully ordering, then getting 3 more hours of sleep. I really hope the website is running smoothly.

    For minimal effort, it is worth a shot, stranger things have certainly happened.

    Setting the alarm for 3:45. I plan on using the Apple Store app on my iphone. When the iphone was released and everyone was trying to get on the website, the app worked perfectly.

    Boy, I feel for you. 4AM Easter is harsh. 1AM for me is management. It's right after my WOW Raid tonight.

    Ugh, if that's the case I might as well order from another online retailer and save the $50 tax... I wonder if these are all shipping from China.

    Ha, nah it's not how it sounds. I ordered from ebay.com as i live in the UK and the guy said he would order it for me as soon as preorders go live. So when i wake up at 9:30am this Friday i should have an email saying he's ordered me one - that'll be nice :)

    They can't sell you one before 5 PM. The computers are locked by corporate and the sales people won't be able to check you out.

    It's 3am in Chicago, and from experience the servers get hammered for an hour or 2 or...

    I think Apple is the only one selling online at launch, if I'm wrong please correct me because I'd prefer to order it from best buy online since I get 5% cashback with my credit card (I do at Apple too but up until today the iPad wasn't restricted but now it is...go figure)
