    ..everyplace I have checked out online is out of stock and apple.com says its shipping in 2 weeks.

    Does anybody have a good source where I could get a 16GB model?

    Thanks!

    eBay has some listed, but then you would have to pay more so its probably not worth it. I'd order from Apple, in the meantime keep checking your local stores. If you find one, just cancel Apple.

    Yup I tried to get one by walking into best buy an hour after they opened and they sold out. I then called all the local apple stores, target and Walmart and same thing. I ordered from Apple.com last Friday and my mini will come in on the 26th.

    I went to Apple store in Scottsdale Quarter to check out accessories for my iPad Mini last weekend. They were sold out 16 GB White iPad Mini as well. It seem like everybody go for 16 GB White???

    Check your local Best Buy, Target, Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, etc.... forget trying to order it.

    If you are in West Tn. I have one that has never been opened that I am returning today. Otherwise order it from MacMall, my friend ordered on Sunday and got it Tuesday.

    I ordered my mini at walmart.com and had it delivered 3 days later. (they estimated 5 days)
    I think I'm taking it back and getting the 4, its great for reading but only so-so for web browsing. My wife got the 4 and I think the text for web browsing is much sharper.

    Yes they do. They have a distribution center here, not sure what that has to do with ordering from them, they still have overnight or 2 day shipping.

    I returned my mini to the Apple store Friday and asked them if they had any in stock, she said they only had a few 64 gb and would be putting the one I returned in stock right then since it hadn't been opened.
