I am very impressed with how Apple has handled the Retina Mini launch. All models are available online and will be delivered in at most 2 weeks. Everyday here in the UK where I am the local Apple stores have Retina Mini stock that you can reserve and collect. I understand the same is true in the US as well. I have managed to walk into Apple stores and get 2 retina minis this week. No hassle. No queuing all night long in the cold. The fact is for a device that is in such short supply Apple have done a great job.Of course not every model is available in store everyday but it is relatively easy to get a new Mini. I just hope Apple continues this method of releasing new products into the future!
