What time should I line up...
Okay, so if you read some of my other posts, I am not too happy that Apple has decided to not do pre-orders. After 2 phone calls and 2 online chats, it seems to be a no go. It's show up on launch day or order online on launch day. I was really hoping to pre-order and have it delivered on the 11th.
So this will be the first time I brave the crazed Apple fans on a launch day. While it looks like fun, I do wish I could be doing other things. So what do you think? Do you think there will be a huge turn out, crazy lines? Should I pull a 7 AM'er? What's your take? What are your plans?
My friend down in LA is going to be lining up at The Grove Los Angeles at 6 AM. He's a nut.

Well, considering it doesnít even go on sale until 5pm that may change your plans of lining up at 6 or 7am. I personally am going to work a half a day and go to my local Best Buy store around 3pm and wait till 5pm to get it. It's totally up to you but I donít think there will be long lines in the morning for the iPad since it doesnít come out until 5pm. Just my personal thoughts though.

The same iPad sold at walmart will the be the same iPad sold at Best Buy or the Apple stores, just for $498.
I personnaly don't think its gonna have all the hype. I mean, its not like the iPhone on its first launch. Most general consumers don't even know that there is a New iPad coming.Those who do wil decide if the second gen is even worth the upgrade.
Besides if the iPas 2 was gonna have a ton of hype, they would have had those iLife apps pre installed

I will go to Best Buy. My Best Buy deals with lines by coming out and offering vouchers for those that they have. By the time I go to Starbucks and come back, they are ready to check me out.

Apple stock was up $7.44 per share today. A hundred shares would cover the cost of a new iPad. I hope you have some.
