    Been looking for an iPad mini in stock in the Tampa Area. No store pickup seems to be available anywhere in Florida as of now. Anyone having any luck finding any? Thank you

    Nope the closest store was in GA. I've tried Best Buy too.

    GA has been the closest, so far. Just keep checking Apple's site. When I got my 5s, I had been checking all day. Finally, at 2:15pm, they updated the site and I was able to grab one.

    I'm further south and haven't seen any stock yet, but I got the air so I'm not following this as close as I otherwise would.

    Is it true you can only get one at the store through on line store pickup? No walk ins?

    First I hear of that. I've read many people just walking in and buying, but many Apple store employees unaware of the launch.

    Nothing in all South Florida either, A genius at the Apple Boca Raton store told me that a shipment was coming to them yesterday at noon but nothing went live in the whole day.

    He did put special attention on no walk-ins and that I needed to buy it online (even right there in the store) and the pick up at the store.

    I am a Elite Plus Member so I have 45 days. Don't know what the standard policy is but I think two weeks

    Can you tell it is the new Retina Mini from the box?
    The one unboxing I saw, the box looked exactly the same.

    Best Buy could have them in stock but how would you know the difference unless you held the box in your hands?

    Box looks the same to me. However if you read the tag on the back it says "with retina display"

    They are showing available in all Best Buys stores here too, I just don't like Best Buy and their policies at all.

    I'm in shock that Best Buy got them before any Apple store in South Florida.

    I was as well. Never had a problem with Best Buy. Will always buy from Apple first if possible but no Apple Stores yet show them in stock and apparently you can't walk in off the street and buy one either

    Can you walk in into Best Buy and purchase or you need to order online and pickup in store?
