I placed a pre-order with Staples and although it says a Nov. 25th release date my expected delivery date is December 1st. Either these retailers are barely getting any supply or they are simply guessing when they will have them in stock. Its kind of a MacMall kind of move.

Especially when they product details web page shows: This Item Ships Free Expected Delivery: 2 Business Days After November 25, 2015

I placed an order on Friday with Staples for the 128gb Space Grey one (delivery to my local store). Got an email giving me an estimated delivery to the store on Nov 11th for the iPad, but Dec 1st for the pencil.
Hoping the 11th date is correct!

But their site says the 25th, and considering what we've been seeing......

But it's not a big deal. If they get it to you on the 11th, that would be awesome for sure.

Ooh, that would be very nice. Hope your estimated delivery date becomes a confirmed date.

Thanks! (and thank you ajsawiz!) I called their 800 number and they said it should be fine, but they were awaiting final word from Apple.
When I ordered on Friday the website was actually showing a November 8th release date? but when I selected ship to store it changed to the 11th.
