    So here's my plan: Pre-order 4G iPad mini and iPad 4 tonight, go line up and buy Wi-Fi iPad Mini and iPad 4 on launch day just to get reviews done faster. Insane enough?
    Rene, what color(s) will you be getting of each?

    My problem with relying on the cloud instead of the drive is the cost of data. 64GB once may be cheaper than the data to download through my phones hotspot. But if a retina mini comes out then I'll have a 64GB to sell. Not yet sure.

    This is a cool forum. I have never waited in lin for i-anything. I just called Apple and they said they have no idea when they can start taking pre-orders.

    It won't. At least not more that 5 minutes or so.

    Well the app store is technically a "cloud" since you can redownload apps for free. That's what I'm talking about. The kindle app's cloud is free and I use comixology and the dark horse comics app for comics and those support redownloading comics for free. I just delete comics as I read them and redownload the ones I want to read again. I also use drop box for DRM free comics.

    I know I am buying a black iPad Mini, but I'm still torn on GB, usually I get as much as possible, future proofing, but I have a feeling I'll be buying a retina mini in the next twelve months. Any thoughts?
    You make a good point...I will definitely be buying the next one if its Retina...perhaps I should get the 32gb...I dont buy from iTunes so iCloud is a waste for me. I don't even think I have a backup in my iCloud. I just plug in to backup.

    Not a chance. Maybe 10 minutes early if we're lucky. Sometimes its 10 minutes late. Also, be aware its MUCH better to order your equipment using the Apple Store app on your iPhone or iPad.

    I don't believe anywhere says that currently. But apple is good about shipping to arrive on or in a lucky few cases before launch day typically.

    I tend to switch colors every generation, so even if the design doesn't change, I can easily tell the apart. Damn iPad 4 will mess with that though, as this is supposed to be the "black" year but I have a black iPad 3.

    (I won't be keeping the Wi-Fi versions, they'll probably end up being Xmas gifts or something.)

    Typically, Apple pre-orders ARRIVE on your door step on the release date.
