I preordered my white iPad mini wifi 16 GB online at 3:30 am central time, and the shipping was already 2 weeks later! Today I went to class, it let out an hour after the apple store opened, so i figured I'd try my luck at the local apple store. They were out of 16 GB both white and black and didn't have any 3G models in stock but they did have a 32GB white wifi, and I couldn't pass it up. I love it! If it had a retina display, the specs of the iPad 3 or 4, and the same 10 hr battery life, I'd use this one more often than the iPad 3. But for now each has its purpose.
I love it so much! So happy!
