    site didnt crash, but at 7am it was 299 and then after adding it, removing it and going back it was at $199 and still is. Maybe MS canada had transactions to deal with?

    I went by our local mall around 9AM and there was a decently long line already so I skipped it.

    The $99 online ones were sold out when I reloaded my page at 11AM.

    I was going to buy one for $199 but the site is broken now.

    Just got one for $99 (PLUS a $25 Windows Store card! What?!?!) at the MS store in Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta. I was astonished at how simple and non-crazed the whole process was. I got there at 6:45 AM and there were only 6 people lined up outside. A MS store employee came out and handed out blue wristbands for the first 20. They were gone by 7:10 or so. Everyone else got an orange wristband to secure the $199 deal.

    We were free to leave the line to eat/use the bathroom/whatever and come back around 8:30 or so. A little before then, they sent out an employee with a store unit to let people in line play with it, plus they gave out free bottled water. They opened at 9AM (one hour earlier than usual). Employees applauded us on the way in and they processed the first 5-8 orders on Lumias with card readers within minutes.

    It was an awesome experience, and the deal was so insane, I dropped another $40 for the Folio case. What a cool day!
    I Unquello and Old_Cus like this.

    Well Woodfield in Schaumburg was a bust. They opened up an hour earlier then they said and they only had 20 at the 99 price. There are over 40 people in line.

    Every store only had 20 at the 99 price. That's not surprising. What is surprising is all the stores I got intel on had way less at the $199 price... well it was only two stores. But the one that had the most had 11 at $199. The other store I heard about had 6!

    I'm sure we'll all be hearing about "how terrible windows 8 still is and how it doesn't compare to my iPad Air, my iPad mini, my Nexus 7, or my Galaxy Tab" from all the tech bloggers that swooped in to pick these up while those of us who actually wanted one continue to disagree. Not on this site of course but maybe on cnet or the verge or sites like that.

    Went to Austin store more than an hour early to see if there was a line. There was a line all the way to Macy's in the freezing rain. I value my time better than that and I wasn't going to get up at 3:00 AM and sit there for 6 or 7 hours, so I went to work instead.

    That's a bummer. At a lot of places, you could show up just two hours early and still get a $99 one.

    Um... yeah. You can earn $100 pretty easily by just working 6 or 7 hours. Some people can earn it an hour. Sitting in the freezing rain for 6 or 7 hours and getting pneumonia is not worth it to save $100 or $179.

    That's impossible. We were told that only happens to healthcare.gov.
    Store wasn't set up to handle this kind of traffic. They know it will crash at times like this. But they're not going to change the infrastructure to support 10,000x more simultaneous people just because of a few special deals.

    And yeah... I know you were joking. I just had to post something because it took me 30 minutes on that online store to get mine. lol

    I think she just told you she went, unless your girlfriend was some stubbly dude with glasses studying a college textbook (#25 in front of me). #27&#28 were some married couple discussing LEGO power miner toys behind me, presumably for their kid.
