Is it possible to preorder 2 products in 1 transaction? I'm planning to preorder a mini and a 4th gen. Does it has to be each one in different transaction ?

I've never heard of pre-orders being limited to one an order so I highly doubt there is a limit.

I plan to pre-order the iPad Mini. I love the black one's slate back.

Haven't most Apple pre orders been midnight Pacific?

Either way, I'm really stoked for the mini. Choosing not to be too fond of the negaitivity, I can't wait!

I recommend using the Apple Store app. Apparently, for the iPhone 5 preorder it went live a couple minutes before on the app.

I agree. The only way I was able to make my preorder for the iPhone 5 go through was actually through the Apple Store app.

Question, how do people get by with just a 16gb HD? With apps, music and movies... I don;t feel i have a big collection of the 3, but 64 GB still doesn't seem to be enough for me.

My general mentality is that I don't need my entire collection on the go with me, just the things I know I want to watch/listen to. And even then, my music collection usually isn't on my iPad because I have my iPhone with me that I see more as a portable music player. Either way, I think a lot of it is mentality. If you tell yourself you don't need that much on your iPad, you won't.

indeed, but I dont take my entire collection on either my iphone or my ipad.

I have more movies on my ipad than I have music on my iphone, but I would much rather use my ipad as a movie device than like my iphone as a music device.

movies, as we all know, take up much more room. I quite often use the hdmi cable and watch on the hotel TV. easy as pie.

I also want to order more than 1 product. I hope they don't have qunatity restriction on pre-orders.

Ona side note. if you buy a wifi version of the ipad can you use maps for navigation by having the iphone 5 as a hotspot on the road.

I, too, will be ordering 2 products -- black 16GB AT&T Mini & black 32GB AT&T iPad. I hope I can do them on the same transaction. So, midnight pacific = 2 AM Central. I'll have to set my alarm.

I'll be pre-ordering the iPad mini 16GB. I'm debating between black and white. I think I'll end up with white so that my iPad and iPhone match. Thanks for the tip about the Apple Store app, guys!
