    One more question.. Does anyone have the black leather smart cover? Any opinions on durability or if the leather fades/wears too quickly? It's pretty expensive but it just looks so sexy
    Yes, I'm planning on getting a red one, so I would like to hear people's experience with them...

    It is the pixels per inch in the display. Makes it so that your eye can't discern individual pixels at a normal operating distance

    I actually ordered this case:
    Amazon.com: Bear Motion Premium Folio Case for iPad Mini 7.9" / the 7.9 Inch Mini iPad Cover (Support Smart Cover Function) - Black DW: Electronics

    Hopefully they got the specs right! If not, it's not a big deal considering I only paid 10 bucks for it.

    Hey just to let everyone know if you have issues with your preorder on the website, you're actually better off using the Apple Store app. I remember it was easier with the iPhone 5 preorder and I imagine it will be the same way here. Well everyone good luck on your preorder and let's go out there and get these devices lol!

    Wish apple didn't change the power cord to a mini. Now we all need adapters to use our current docking stations & car audio sources

    The best deal is if you go to the Refurbished section of the Apple Store. They have refurb iPad 3s for $379. Best deal in town...

    I second that! Definitely can be a good backup if the Apple site gets clogged.

    Honestly, I'm probably going to try this first since all I have to do is put in my username and password and all my payment and shipment information is already in the app.

    LOL. My wife just stumbled out of the bedroom all bleary-eyed asking if I got her iPad yet. I told her, "No honey, not yet. Look at the Smart Cover color options, choose one, and go back to sleep."

    She chose pink. And then stumbled back out a minute later and chose green. Priceless!

    Oh, I know that. Just stating the condition that caused the return. I wouldn't be upraised if the ones that they had as exchange sku's are now going out at the refurb price. Brand new devices just without retail packing

    Seriously! Apple's never steered me (or anyone else I know, for that matter) wrong with a refurbished product. Some of the best in the tech world.

    I have a black leather smart cover... I like it. Ive had it over a year and never had any problems with it, no fading or leather cracking issues. When it gets dirty I just wipe it down with a damp microfiber cloth. Ive had the other smart covers and had issues with the material bunching up at the hinge resulting in it sliding around a bit when closed on the iPad.

    Officially lost what's left of my mind. I'm now watching the incredibly bad U.S. version of the incredibly good British show Coupling... on MySpace.

    Start the pre-orders already before I'm forced onto something worse... like reality TV!
