    This is indeed an incredibly sad day for me, i just sold my 15gb iPod so i could buy a mini, and they are totally out of stock here in Chicago! (in the Apple Stores, that is) They stores say a few weeks till they get there, but i don't want to wait that long! Online vendors are no better, either offering weeks delays until shipping, or just no shipping date at all. Is there anyone who has iPod mini's in-stock?

    Anyone else having this problem elsewhere around the USofA?

    At least know that unlike our Apple loving friends overseas you won't have to wait until JULY! I feel for you guys, hang in there!

    Welcome to the club. I was at the N. Michigan store about three weeks ago and they were sold out then. They had me place the order online...... still waiting. I got a nice email from Apple saying its gonna be another week at least. You could always over pay on eBay if you want one that badly.

    The Apple store is out because that is the first place people go to look for Apple products. Try a place that doesn't specialize in Macs, but still carries them. Go to Best Buy or even Target. Most people don't even know that Target carries iPods and iPod accessories. If that doesn't work, there is still CompUSA and Circuit City. Keep on looking, you'll find one.

    No one has them. Anywhere. Period. If an Apple store doesn't have them, I doubt anyone else will. Best thing to do is sit and wait and stop complaining.

    And the smart thing to do was to make sure you could even get a mini before you sold your 15 GB ipod.

    odd

    odd, The local apple reseller (applied tech systems) said they had a stock of about 150, and that was yesterday.
