anything thing to consider if you will be out in a line for the iPad on friday.
Check with your local target to see if they will be selling the new iPad on friday and how many they will have in stock. If they in fact will have the new iPad and you have a target credit card you would save 5% off on the price by using the target credit card.
Target will not have anywhere near as many units as the apple store however so you would need to be in the front of the line to expect to get one.

I think 3am might be safe. If you drive by Thursday evening around 10ish and there is already a line, you better get in it.
Where do you live? I'm in northern AB and it says ill get mine on Friday. That being said I already told my husband I won't be having my shower till the ups lady comes.

I'm still trying to decide should I take an extended lunch break fri or just stay at home since FedEx stated fri 3/16 by 3pm...I called FedEx and they said they will not hold iPads at the distribution center. 😒

Probably good reasons for that. If they gave you yours first, could you restrain yourself and not run home to play with it. I think I'd be tempted to hit the fire alarm or something, and try to escape during the confusion.

I'm very suspect of those (especially those guys in Asia) that received their pads days ago! There's no way apple could ship them that fast without others taking delivery too?!! I smell 'off the back of a lorry' quote here!!! ;-)
Nothing was delivered days ago...

I'm near the one in Peachtree City, but I didnt try my luck this year and just Pre-Ordered...

So is Best Buy opening at their normal time or will there be an early opening like the Apple stores?
