    i want an ipad mini (don't we all haha) but i am tired i mean TIRED of playing this cat and mouse game and getting wrong info from apple employees, if i get any info at all from them.

    apple sold out first and second days.
    on the second day while i was trying to track one down at best buy, target, walmart etc.. apple got some in but as i said sold them.

    if i order from apple.com i get a delivery of 11-27.

    if i order at apple.com for store pick up i can only order what my local apple store has left over from that day... (ok so how do i get one)

    they wont tell me when they get stock in.. they say "all the time"

    ok well today is sunday get any now? its all the time now...

    should i just get to apple tomorrow before they open and tell them i will wait until they more in? i am assuming they will get some tomorrow being monday?

    like i said tired of cat and mouse and may just get an ipad 2

    I just walked in to the apple store at 2:00 pm Friday and walked out five minutes later with a mini. You may be over thinking this..

    just order it if you want it. Or look on in-store pick up. If you wanted a mini iPad thats what you should get. You aren't going to be happy with the iPad 2 if what you really wanted was a mini iPad.

    Be on your computer a few mins before 10 with the iPad you want in your cart. Refresh and you will probably score one.

    Do you know how sick Apple store employees have to be of people asking them how to get the newest device that sold out on the first day of availability?

    I mean, think about it. How would you feel if every 2 minutes some idiot is coming up to you "when will you have more iPad minis? Today? Tomorrow? What time exactly? Please please please???"

    They don't know. And they don't care. They are going to sell every single one of these things whether you get one or not. They have no obligation to tell you exactly when they will get stock.

    They've told you all of the methods for getting one. Order online and wait 3 weeks. Or refresh your screen 30 times per second at 10PM and try to reserve one for pickup. Or walk into the store, ask if they have any, and quickly leave if they say no, rather than harrassing them.

    Reread your OP and look at how ridiculous you sound... "I will wait in line until you get more in!"

    If you wanted it so badly, you should have pre-ordered.
