In anticipation of long, long, long queues at all official Apple retailers across Malaysia, Machines — one of the country’s more prominent Apple retailers — have posted FAQs related to the purchasing process for the iPad 2 on launch day.
Head on after the jump for the full list but here are the more pertinent points:
- All Machines outlets will carry the iPad 2 EXCEPT for its outlet in the Gardens at Mid Valley.
- Retail store sales will begin at 1000hrs. Not all outlets will allow you to queue overnight. Machines Mid Valley, Sunway Pyramid, allow overnight queues. Machines KLCC, Bukit Tinggi, Lot 10 and JB City Square do not. Queue for these outlets will be right outside the outlets from the time of mall opens to public, roughly around 0900hrs.
- Purchases are limited to two units per customer.
