I couldn't wait any longer - I took the plunge and ordered an iPad mini for pick-up at the Apple store! So I'm going today or tomorrow to pick it up.

I didn't really mean to. I was looking around just to see how available it was, and delivery time online said at least two weeks, and most random stores were out of the model I wanted (in silver/white definitely ) then the Apple Store I called around closing time said they had a few and if I wanted to secure it I could order it for pick-up online after a certain time when the inventory updates. I wasn't going to buy one right away, but it seemed like my options were now or possibly two weeks after whenever I decided or constantly checking to see when it might happen to be in stock in stores...so I decided now.

Ordering for pick-up was easy, and sure enough, before the particular inventory update time, I would try and all of the 20 closest Apple stores (lol since most all are very far away) that it searches were sold out of the model I wanted. Then at the appointed time, boom, the one store here said it was in stock. Out of curiosity I looked at the other 19 stores it displays and they were all still sold out after the inventory update. And after I bought mine, I looked again out of curiosity and the store I had bought it from showed sold out. So it seems like I got the very last one for now at any of the 20 closest Apple stores.

I'm so excited to get it! It's an early Christmas present to myself since I wouldn't ask anyone else to get me something that costs this much. It's my first tablet and I'm hoping it will become my main e-reader.

But looking at my username and the ad pics it should've been obvious I was going to choose the iPad mini:
