    GREAT idea. I'm minutes away from an Apple Store. If UPS does deliver early enough, I'm unboxing it, and then headed over to the Apple Store to poach some WiFi and maybe set mine up in front of the masses. :D

    Some best buys are opening early, while others are not. Call your local store for more information

    Do you think this can be compared to a black-Friday event, as far as crowds go? I'll be watching the news stories.
