    Apple store in the Woodfield Mall, Schaumburg, Illinois

    Woke up at 8:30 (didn't shower, shave, or brush my teeth, ewwwww, also bad move, apple customers are chatty!:p), got there at 9:00 (store was already open and there was already a line of at least 30 :eek:)

    About 10 minutes later the att wifi sold out. Some people left and the line shrunk a little.

    9:30 they informed the line that they were sold out BUT another shipment was coming in at 10 if you want to wait. :( and :)

    Next shipment arrived at around 10:00 and they started handing out vouchers. A couple of people were getting two! They should change that policy. Despite that, I got one and about another 20 people behind me got one too! :D Out the store at 10:30.

    Moral of the story, go to an apple store.

    By the way, an apple employee came out during all this and had an Ipad 1 and said she had this to sell :confused:, the people around me (including myself) laughed at her. lol

    Also a parent wanted to buy the ipad 1 and didn't care. I know some kid is going to have a temper tantrum. :mad: lol

    Good luck on the hunt!

    -shrug- Im perfectly happy waiting awhile to get the employee price at best buy and the employee price on the buy back program. That way, when the 3 comes out, I get 240 back for my ipad to put toward the ipad 3. WOOT

    Since you are an apple employee you should get it at Best Buy in order to get the discount. All others, go to an apple store!

    I never wait on lines either. While waiting I said I feel like a tool, the people around me laughed and agreed. :)

    What is your discount on the iPad? I didn't think y'all got much of a discount on Apple products.

    This is how I ended up getting my iPad 2 this morning. I worked til 1 am last night, tried to sleep, which did not happen, left wt 330 am, drove an hour, got in line at 445 as the 7th person, and waited a longgggg time. Around 8 when the apple employee came out she announced that they unfortunately only had 15 iPads. Well, since they allow two iPads per person, and there was a group of 4 in the front of the line with the intent of buying two each to specifically sell (they paid in cash which was elasticed together in their pockets (fresh $100 bills of course), that eliminated 8 right of the bat. When it got to me they had a couple white 64gb Verizon models, and a black 32 gb wifi only. My preference was the black wifi 64 gb, but decided to cope with the 32, and finnnnaaalllyy for my iPad 2!! There were about 50 other people behind us that went home disappointed, but if you REALLY need an iPad at this point get to apple really early and get in line.
