Just a heads up ... I went to my local Best Buy and was able to purchase one of the new mid-level minis. This worked out pretty well as I had RZ certificates and do not have an Apple store very close to me. The person who rung me up also took off the small educational discount. They had the new labels mixed in with the Mac laptops and only had one or two in stock. I just thought I'd share as the BB website still has them listed as "pre-order" and unavailable in store. I did double-check to make sure it was a new model (looked for USB 3, 1 TB, and Intel 4000 graphics).
