    I see all colours and sizes are still available for delivery on the 2nd.

    Doesn't seem to be a huge demand for it, it'll probably be possible to just walk in and buy one on release day. The Mini seems to be taking all the demand.

    You're probably right, and knowing my luck the bloody thing won't arrive on friday!

    ----------

    In fact you inspired me. I've cancelled the order and will try my luck on Friday walking into the store. :)

    I cant decide whether to get a mini or new ipad. I dont need the posh screen or processor, but it seems counter productive to buy one with an already out of date chip and screen.

    I only really use it in the house for airplay and magazines, and when I go on holiday for films and magazines and news etc. But my iPad 1 is getting a bit sluggish with newstand.

    I couldn't help but feel a little annoyed that my 3rd generation iPad was so quickly outdated, but I went for it anyway and ordered a 4th generation this morning. I decided to go for black 32GB this time, having had white on the previous 2 occasions. I'm not expecting anything revolutionary but still looking forward to it all the same. :)

    I thought about buying a refurb too.

    I have got a few apps that are quite processor intsenive music apps that just dont run too well on the ipad 1 which I'd like to start using more (rebirth, meta.dj, reactable mobile etc), so im thinking the A6X processor is a bit more 'future proof' iykwim...... But day to day its mainly magazines and airplay.

    I'm disappointed that i can't reserve one for pickup. I can't preorder as I had took my ipad 3 back this week and got they money refunded onto a giftcard. :(

    I can understand why not the Ipad 1, but the 3 should do.

    Ugh! Unfortunately I cancelled my order a couple of times, not realising that each time it was deducting the money from my account, and not returning it when I cancelled. I suspect its my rubbish bank RBS rather than Apples fault, but I have to wait 2 - 3 working days and am 800 quid out of pocket. :confused:

    Guess I'll definitely be trying to walk in on Friday now....

    Upgrading from a 1st Gen to a 4th Gen. Got the education discount - but it was only £12 in the end. Nothing to sniff at, but thought it would be more like 10%.

    Excited :)
