    Early Christmas presents ordered for me and the wife. Should get them in about a week.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I missed the boat. It was a night not on the computer, and i didn't check Twitter, so if i had of, i reckon i could go got one in 24hrs but hey, its still on its way.

    Yea i got engraving (with the iPhone5s 5-10 days went down to 1-3 if you added engraving) but was a generic "The presents of all presents" but still gave me 5-10 day lol DOH !!!!

    Congrats i can't wait to see how fast this is.

    I'm guessing that the author of that article is not a fan of the new (outrageous) pricing.

    Can you blame him? Nothing like raising the price $70 and then stating that it looks like there will be a shortage.... I guess you could say Apple is making up for the drop in their stock prices.

    Well, I just picked up the Asus Nexus 7 2013 model, 32 GB last Saturday.
    Movies look great and the speakers at each end for stereo are pretty nice.
    Text of books is nice and crisp.
    Just couldn't bring myself to pay the diff in price between the mini and the 7.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    The Mini is $419, the N7 is $229. I suspect that many people, assuming they don't have anything against Android, will make the same decision you do.

    And another $60 difference as the Nexus upcharges $40 to upgrade to 32 GB vs $100 in the mini - this is where the big rape starts coming into play.
    The 32 GB I bought was $269 vs $499.

    And since I have to (so as not to raise the wife's eyebrows) buy these kind of toys from the savings of my $60/week allowance...

    FWIW, iFixit's teardown of the mini confirmed it has the same A7 chip as the iPhone 5s. The Air has a better version.

    On a personal note, I've had the iPad Air since release day and I'm loving it. The wife and I are like kids waiting for our turn to play with it. It's so awesome to hold and use, especially coming from the 1st gen iPad. World of difference!

    My wife got the Air and I just picked up a mini retina tonight. I use my original mini as a camera controller for my photography business and the Retina is the "backup". Man is the text crisp on that thing. I also have an ipad 3 but I really prefer the size of the mini.

    I'm fully assimilated. Entire eco system is Apple now and I don't see going backwards to andriod/windows

    And BOOM !!!!! This is what i needed to hear, to tell myself i made the right choice. I was considering the iPad Air, because of screen size and the easier reading, but i had a mate check out the difference between the 2 iPad Mini's and he said the words "popped" off the page, and now you confirm this.
    I considered the Air, because of the screen real-estate, BUT i love the size of the Mini, and i can hold it in my hand for a long period of time without it getting tired/sore/cramped-up.

    Im still waiting for a Tracking # Sucks living 300kms from Perth, and even then, i reckon i would of got there and then told to ring up and Book one, like i did for the iPhone5 . . . Anyways. I waited longer.

    Just scored two yesterday and cancelled my online order. Checked tracker and saw our local
    Apple Store had them in stock, and yes, the text is way more readable than on the original mini. These are sweet.
