    Yes, good point. There is a Best Buy across the mall where the Apple store is, so maybe I will check it out too. Hopefully it will not be too crazy given some people waiting for the wifi+cell models to come out....

    I ordered online. I live on the border to mexico. There are 700k "residents"..but figure all the aliens there is close to 1million people. Plus the bus loads of people that cross the border daily.

    Shopping down here on a regular tuesday is like Black Friday in my home town of Denver. Shopping down here is always packed and streets always flooded. Good for our economy but only if you like black friday type crowds (I would take NYC over this! lol)

    ..So online order I did. UPS guy should be here at wrok by noon. :)

    I got up for 8am here in London and received mine by 8.10am. I'm not sure many people are buying the mini Ipad in London :(.

    I got there 7:45am and was first in line. By the time they opened the doors, only 4 people total all looking for the Mini only. The store has 25 Minis and 60 ipad 4s. No white iPad minis though...not that I was looking for that :)

    In and out in 5 minutes....not bad. I got $40 gift card too!

    Target price match....obviously that is very discretionary with each store, but I am Silver Rewards member over two times over ;) They wouldn't want me pissed off I'm sure.

    Got mine at the Apple store this morning. Got there at 745 and maybe 20 people ahead of me. There was a longer line on the other side for the iPhone 5!

    I wondered into a local best buy (in the next city down, but closer to work) at about 12:45 and had a mini in about 15 minutes or so. Most of that was standing there waiting for someone to get it down from the case. No line, no nothing. I love smallish towns.

    This mini is great for sitting on the couch surfing and typing. Typing is much easier and faster too. If this thing had a retina display it would end tablets from anyone else. Apple missed the boat there. Oh well, competition is a good thing.

    I had some mighty will power tonight. I decided to drop by my local Apple store to check them out. I thought they were awesome. I really like the feel of it and how light it is. If it had a retina display it would have been a done deal but I held off for now, cough cough plus they were sold out :)

    Have had an iPad 2 and now a iPad 3. Wanted to use a Mini for more portability. But when I used the Mini yesterday, and read on it for several hours, the fuzzy fonts drove me crazy. I could hardly wait to get back to my ipad 3 and the Retina display. The Mini looks great but I'll wait for it to have the Retina. I did not want to feel my technology was going backwards
