Should I give up?

I've been waiting for the white iPad Minis to come in stock for about 3 days now and no luck, I've missed several opportunities to get one. Should I cut my losses and get a black one? I am just so scared to get it scratched D:

You've been using this site?
http://www.ipad-stock.co.uk

Just buy from the apple online store and be done with it.

It's obviously not working for you. Had you just ordered online you'd probably have it in your hands now.

Well could it be that there is a 2 week dispatch time and it would arrive at my house on the 3rd January? Maybe...

So order it online, and if you find one locally cancel that order. It's either that or you can play the waiting game and maybe not find one locally until after the 1st.

Get black - return black once you secure a white.

Idk... seems a lot of hassle. Some stores on ebay are selling the iPad 4 for 370 which is only 100 more then the mini, might just wait a week or two and get one.

so you complain about 2 weeks shipping but now you are saying you are going to wait a week or two. I'm so confused.

Yes you should give up if you attempted three times already and "something went wrong" each time. It's fate. Stick with getting an iPhone5 and forget about the Mini.

I ordered a white one with a red cover from the online Apple store on the 1st December. It was originally telling me delivery by the 31st December. Got an email today, 10th, to tell me its been shipped for delivery on the 19th.

If you order one today, I'd say you would have a good chance of getting before Xmas.

Well, if you don't place the order because you're worried about the estimated delivery date then, yes, you will have problems ordering.

The delivery estimates are conservative. As stated above, had you ordered you might be getting it soon. Sitting around and not ordering won't get it to you any faster.
