Macy's local store has some minis in stock. Shocked me cause no one else does. The closer we get to Xmas, the harder they will be to purchase as folks waiting will scarf any up at retail stores.

Didn't even know that Macy's carries electronics beyond alarm clocks.

iPad mini keyboard

It is a electronic device which is used in all over the world. iPad cost also high. I tested both of iPad mini keyboard cases and either is a nice accessory.

The version I want to get my wife for Christmas is out of stock at 229 stores near me lol. I ordered one online but would cancel the order if I could find one in a store.

With the iPhone 5, Apple stared updating retail store stock at 10PM and you were able to reserve them if you watched the online store at the right time and got your order in quickly. Right now the iPad mini shows out of stock everywhere I have looked. Does anyone know if they are doing a similar thing with nightly stock for the mini, and if the updates are at 10PM?

Sometimes the updates don't happen until later, but yes, start checking at 10PM local time.

Saw 10 minis at the express checkout at the Apple Store in Reading today. May be worth phoning and see if you have one nearby.

Was it in one of those giant electronics vending machines they have? I know they have had iPods etc there in the past. Those machines are pretty cool.

Ah, Apple: you're the only company that can afford to purposefully create an artificially high demand for your product by restricting supply. And you're so damn good at it.

I'm sure there are many who have unintentionally sought out Minis despite the fact that they don't really want/need it.

It's true that which you can't obtain becomes more desirable.

My Apple authorized University store is sold out of Mini's until after the new year. They have plenty of full size iPads.

Not sure what model you are after, and assuming you are in the UK.... amazon.co.uk show 16GB Wifi black available and delivered for 20th.

What happened was they forecasted 6 million Mini sales through the end of the year, and they blew by that long ago. OTOH, as you can see from the fact that the full size iPads are everywhere, I don't think Apple was anticipating the wide uptake of the Mini so quickly.

64GB Minis are in most stores I've visited. 16 and even 32 is nowhere to be found. Not many are willing to pay a 60% premium over the price of a 16GB model for an additional 48GB of storage, which is pretty outrageous..

I was refreshing the "pick your store" page in my shopping cart and randomly at around 1:30pm yesterday there was availability for a 16GB wifi only black mini at the Apple Store at the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, NJ. When I went to pick it up the guy told me they got about 50 in yesterday morning of the 16gb wifi versions. Might be worth calling them if you're still looking and are in the northern NJ area

Ridiculous to think that Apple needs to artificially create demand by limiting supply. Apple wants to sell as many damn mini's as possible. They can't just assume that people will wait around and not purchase something else. My guess is they underestimated demand, or knew demand would be high but just can't make them fast enough.

I don't know... it would be even more ridiculous in my opinion to think a company with 80 billion dollars can't have what they want in the blink of an eye.

Your original argument makes zero sense, especially in a holiday quarter when many people are buying these as Christmas gifts. The iPad is not some new product category that Apple needs to artificially hype demand for. If LG and AU Optronics were/are having display yield issues Tim Cook can't just wave more money in their face and make the problem to away.
