    I really want to touch and hold one to see if I like it or not. There's no Apple store anywhere nearby. Does anyone know if Best Buy will at least have a display model?

    if your bestbuy has one of those little mac areas, I'm sure they will.

    I went to Best Buy this morning and picked up a 16GB Black. As far as I know (at least for the Best Buys in the DC Metro area) they do not have white in any configuration.

    I have a Target right next to a Best Buy. I got the mini at Target but then went to Best Buy to pick up an accessory. They could see what I had in the Target bag lol, they gave me some dirty, or maybe puzzled, looks. Either way, based on the fact that they asked me if I just picked one up at Target and seemed put off by it, and the fact that they had cases and stuff already, they definitely had to have some. I would call your local Best Buy (and Target) though before heading over there.

    Zero white models here in fort smith Arkansas as well.

    My best buy only got five of each model. They'll be sold out by this afternoon, they're predicting.

    They make more $$$ on accessories than the actual ipads.

    Do these stores actually have them on display as well? I really want to hold one before making the decision.

    Cincinnati Western Hills Best Buy had a black iPad mini behind the service desk that they let you use, play with.

    They also had all configurations in black, but only a few white 16gb.

    This was as about 9 this morning.

    Good luck!

    I went to Best Buy this morning and asked if they had a display model. One of the guys had to go to the back and get it so I grabbed a ticket to buy one. He brought it out and handed it to me and walked off. I played around with it for a few minutes and had to find someone to give it back to. I finally found the manager and gave it to him.

    Have fun in the "Nati" with your new iPad Mini, that is if you picked up one :)

    No White Models in my local Best Buy or Target.... but they had only 5 mini's at Target. Best Buy was handing out paper certificates for the mini. Only 4 people in line at Best Buy. Target had no one. I picked mine up at Target and my neighbor purchased it with her employee discount so I basically picked up a black 32GB version for 20 dollars more than what I would have paid for a 16GB.

    Neither Best Buy in town received any Smart Covers. I didn't check any of the Targets. Neither Best Buy received any white iPads either.

    My BB has all sizes of black mini's in stock, but no whites and no smart covers.

    They had a display model (not tethered!) that I was able to spend some time with. Ultimately decided to stick with the 4 I ordered.

    Nope, I had to go to the cust service to get mine.

    Clark St, Chicago Store, they had no 16gb White and Black left. They should have 32 and 64gb ones though.
