His advice was correct and not rude, just the truth. I asked yesterday in store when they were expecting some in. They have an idea of when and how much but they never really know until the morning when it comes so thats why they cant give you a strait answer. Its store policy. He
One associate told me to get there by 6am, as last week there were 100 people. I showed up at 5:30am this morning, 21st in line. I got my iPad at 9 when they opened as did EVERYONE in line. At about 8:45 they said they received a "substantial" amount. When they came around with tickets the guy had TWO FIST FULLS!! Easily over a hundred behind the counter and more in the back.
Luck has a lot to do with it. Go early and go often. Best of luck.
