    Who's getting in line for an iPad tomorrow? I am going to try and get there at 6:30am in hopes of not having to keep searching for one.

    IMO if you live close to a Target they may be your best bet.

    Use to methods in the stickied thread "Target Information". I got my 32gig Wifi iPad 2 this morning at the price of a mere 1 hour wait.

    There were only four in stock, but those of us on line easily got out preferences.

    I'm planning to line up at the Apple store in the Walden Galleria outside of Buffalo tomorrow morning. I'll call them tonight to see if they received a shipment today first, though.

    Did anyone go to Walden this morning? I didn't see any tweets about about a lineup. I was thinking that showing up around 7:00 would be sufficient.

    If I hadn't gotten one this morning, I would be. I lined up Tuesday and they only had 5, tried again this morning and had better luck. I'm hoping for everyone else's sake that it's a sign of inventory opening up a little.

    I've been in line the last two days without luck. The local Apple store gets about 15 iPads each day. The first day they had Verizon only. Today they had mostly WiFi with some Verizon. I'm hoping for an ATT 32GB Black. I got there about 6:45AM and was number 15 in line. Some people showed up later said that 400 people lined up in San Francisco. I checked with another local Apple store and they had received zero iPads. Zero.

    I got two 16 gigs this am and I was third in line getting there at 5 am. They only had 9 in stock. 1 32 gig wifi black and 8 16 gig black wifi. First 5 people in line got them. I plan on going back in the am and getting two more for friends of mine. Planning on arriving at 330 am to be first in line this time around. First customer was 430 then 445 then myself at 5 am and so on. By the time 7 am rolled around line wrapped around store. Between 430 am and 9 am over 250 stopped by to get Ipad. 245 turned away.

    True.

    I didn't even give serious thought to Target till I saw the other Target thread. Timed it so I was there when they opened, and I was the only customer in the department.

    Picked up three, and was outta there in mere minutes. Shocking how easy it was.

    No phone calls, no waiting, just walked in. Thanks MacRumors!

    Pittsburgh

    I want to line up at one of the Apple stores in Pittsburgh, either Ross Park or South Hills Village. Probably around 7:45. Malls both open at 8.

    Anyone tried either in the mornings?

    Going to Rockingham Park or Pheasant Lane Mall? Haven't been to the one in Nashua, but Rockingham you won't be able to enter before 7AM.

    Nashua, just found out mall doesn't open until 8am. So I guess it will be a mad sprint to the apple store. Thankfully I am in pretty good shape. :D

    Think I'm gonna try the Mall at Millennia tomorrow morning. (In Orlando)

    Talked to a rep there and he said that if they get a delivery, they will open early. No shipment, no open early. It's basically a crapshoot at this point.

    When I called and asked if they were participating in the "open early" program he first responded with..."depends who's asking." After my laughter died down I told him that I appreciated that he could still have a sense of humor after answering the same iPad questions thousands of times over the last week. He appreciated my appreciation.

    I had been going to Ross Park and they've had less than 10 Tuesday and Wednesday. People were lined up outside the mall starting at 7, and it got up to about 20-25 people by the time the mall opened at 8. Somehow other people are getting into the mall even earlier, maybe coming in with employees, so there are already 7 or 8 people lined up at the actual store once we all got in. Both days. They've had only wifi and Verizon. Not sure about South Hills.

    I just called the Apple store in the Walden Galleria in Buffalo and spoke to a very friendly man. The phone rang and rang and rang, and it was the second time I had called. I was about to hang up when I heard someone pick up, not say anything, and then start laughing hysterically. Then he apologized and told me they weren't selling any iPad 2s. I asked him if they would be opening early to sell them tomorrow morning and he said they would be doing so at 9AM with very limited stock.

    Count me in.

    Super secret pro tip: if you can, avoid mall Apple stores.

    Actually, 7:50 got me an iPad 2 in NYC this morning. Harlem Target had two iPad2s 32GB Wifi. I got to the store 10 mins before opening. No one waiting. Walked casually to the back and asked for assistance. Out by 8:20am. :)

    OK guys, off to bed. Up at 5:30am in hopes of finally getting one. Wish me luck. If you are going to the Nashua NH store tomorrow I will be wearing a green Celtics hat if you want to say hi.
