    Just got back from Best Buy. Store was empty. There were about five employees standing around the iPad counter. I was in and out in under 5 minutes. They have an odd process, that includes filling out some form and going to the customer service area. There wasn't much when it comes to case choices. They had the Smart Cover, but not the Smart Case. I did see pricing labels for the Smart Cover, but it had Smart Cases. I bet if I pushed, they probably have stock in the back. I was interested in getting in and out fast, so didn't bother.

    Protection plans are $99 and they last a year.

    I hear they'll match Walmart's price, but I purchased mine before hearing that news.

    I look forward to your impressions of the iPad Air. My heart is set on the iPad Mini Retina but I still would like to hear of other people's experiences with the Air.

    My guess is most people are holding out for the mini. Congrats on the new purchase.

    I ordered online for an 11/4 delivery. However around 11am I went to the Best But closest to my home, and yes the store was quiet and quite empty, they had a number of iPad Air available, but none embedded and one in the size and color I wanted. Plenty of 16G and WiFi only in a decent assortment.
    On the way to work stopped at another, and pretty much the same. At this point there was no embedded models in any color and size available in the Atlanta Metro...according to the associate. This was around noon. Glad I have one on the way though.

    My Best Buy only had the Wi-Fi versions. Ordered the AT&T 128GB. We'll see how long it'll take to come in.
