    Default iPad mini Shipping Time Frames

    I just ordered a mini from Apple because I got tired of stalking all of the retail stores around here to get what I wanted. I was just wondering if anyone had ordered lately and can say how long it took. They claim by Dec. 14th. I'd love for it to be earlier, so I'm just wondering experiences.

    Thanks.

    wow that really sucks. my local Best Buy had almost all models in stock. seems there's a run on 16gb units in my area.

    If you have a Apple store in your area, check inventory online at 10pm. That's how I scored my AT&T model.

    Yeah, they have all been white and 64gb for the most part. No black ones and no 16gb at all. I've checked Walmart, Sam's, Target, Best Buy, and Radio Shack. No dice anywhere.

    Closest one to me is about 150 miles away. So that option is out, unfortunately.

    If I lived close to an Apple store I'd definitely go that route. I'm really hoping I get it a little quicker than December 14th.

    Yeah. I really wish the local stores had the black one in. They all had the 32gb white, but I wanted the 32gb black. I got so tempted to buy the white but I just have some weird aversion to white electronics.

    No dice online. I'll have to call my local store in the morning and see if they'll hold one for me. Assuming they got any in.

    Haha. Don't know if they're open now. It's 10:55 local time. Think even on Black Friday they're closed now. Don't think my wife would let me ditch her and our newborn at this time of night either.

    Oh yeah. Peace at home comes first. Then tech lust. I'll get one at some point because I do still have my Apple order. I'm just being super impatient and want one now! And my wife knows how I am, too, she usually lets me just go. But having a 3.5 week old baby, didn't think it was kosher to leave her hanging at 11pm.

    Thanks! We've got the 3.5 week old and a 10 year old. So the house is little nuts right now. I'm sure my wife wouldn't mind a little extra sleep - but man if she got hungry she'd just have to deal with it because dad can't feed her!
