    I also wanted to see it and stopped after work at Best Buy. I asked to see a demo model and got three different answers from three different people. Finally one Geek Squad guy showed me which one was the iPad 3, er, I mean NEW iPad. They also had plenty of stock.

    Now I'm trying to decide if I want to sell my 16gb iPad 2 and buy a new 32gb iPad 2. I'm running out of storage. I'm ok until I want to load a couple movies on it. $100 off is a great deal and I love the thinner, lighter iPad 2.

    No offense. But for the experience? Sorry I have better things to do at my time. I have a job, a life, and things to do. This makes no sense to me. Why would anyone in their right mind stand in line for any kind of item?

    I camped out all night cos I was convinced I would not get one otherwise as everyone said it would be sold out for
    months if you didnt.
    No one else turned up till five am and it was without a doubt one of the worst experiences of my life.
    Never believe the hype that is what I took from it.

    Each to their own, but I've got a job two young children and I do photography jobs on the odd weekend, no time!

    Click and collect is a godsend for me, spent five mins ordering yesterday morning, pick up from my local supermarket this afternoon whilst daughter is at a party. Easy peasy!

    I haven't really got into the apple store experience. I remember last year parking in pay and display next to the store, jumping out wanting to grab the camera connection kit and jump back in the car and the apple sales guy was wanting to take his time. I felt really bad having to hurry him up...

    I have better things to do too.....but standing in line meant I got my iPad much sooner than otherwise. Not everyone is standing in a long like as everyone assumes. I had my iPad 3 at 8:04am because I stood in line. Now, if we were talking about camping out........as some do in the megacities......

    Yeah, I would either shop at the apple store in person (AFTER the hype has died down) or apple store.com. Maybe best buy - after hype. There is no Walmart that I know of in the city.

    Mostly you wait in line because thru the 3GS and 4 - preorder people didn't get theirs first. If you wanted one on day 1 of release you had to stand in line. Plain & simple. Line standers always get theirs first.

    The iPhone 4S was the first apple product in several years where pre-order people got theirs on day 1 of release. So I stand in line because I no longer trust the preorder system. Got burned twice. Never again.
