Ah, yeah I did. My mistake. Should've been "apple retailer" since we don't have an Apple Store here it's impossible

But where did you guys order it?

You're probably going to get a lot of people here say that's not the case, but then again almost all the people that own mini's on this forum don't do anything on them outside of the above two tasks.

Save your self the hassle of returning it and pick up a brilliant ipad 4. Don't worry, your arms should be able to lift it, despite what people here say, who are apparently not drinking enough milk to keep their bones nice and strong.

Bought a case at the store today so I'm ready for it

I preordered it and got it shipped. Then I went into an Apple Store to change it for a smaller one (16Gb vs 32Gb).

But if I had to buy it now, I would go to the Apple Store, since I have no less than 3 of them within a few miles But that's just because I don't like to wait when I don't have to.

Now, if you buy it through a retailer, pay attention to their return policy. Otherwise, it's just as good as a physical store !

Can't you order it on the online Apple Store ? Is there a delay there too ? Or do you want the LTE one ?

I see. I've always bought my gear online and not through retailers, if something should go wrong with it, I'd trust Apple a bit more than the retailers. Yeah I've ordered it today on the online store, and shipping is set for two weeks! Yikes!
