Went to the store in Plano Texas this morning. They only received 20 Mac minis and they were all sold in 30 minutes. There was quite a long line of people trying to get iLife and iWork as well. iPod shuffles were long gone except the 1 they were raffling off for us students and educators who had a special student preview of Mac mini. Ironic part is it was one of the kids' parents who won the shuffle. At least of the 7 students, 3 won iTMS $15 gift cards, 2 being myself and my former room mate.

I can't believe the San Francisco store only had 60 people. My local store had 100+ people in line by the time they opened, and it's not the only store around, either!

Oh, and hey Trowaman -- you might want to try Microcenter for a Mini. They have two in Texas, though I don't know how close they are to you:


I called the one in Tustin, CA today and they said they had 12 of each Mini model in stock. This was well into the afternoon, too. Their website is also showing a 1-3 day shipping time for the Minis.
