Very nice. Congratulations! I look forward to hearing what you think of the new iPad Mini. I'm curious how it performs with high-end graphic games and RAM performance.

Nice overview Chris. I look forward to the indepth review. The fact that this will be my first iPad, slight differences from previous generations make no difference. So far, I'm hearing very positive things about the retina display.

I Just ordered mine and tried to get in store pick up but no such luck. I am hoping to get it before Thanksgiving and have it for traveling. My wife has been chopping at the bit to get my original mini, now she will have it in a few days. Apple sure pulled a fast one on us. I picked up Chris' post on Facebook and placed my order right away. I usually check everythingicafe several time a day but the last 2 days have been so busy I was only checking Facebook. For me the mini with retina is perfect. I still keep my 3 on my reading stand by my chair and use it there but for easy ability of carry it's the mini.

Mines coming
Mine is also on the way. It has left china and is currently in Hong Kong. One problem at this point -- UPS is showing a delivery date of November 19th and I will be out of town that day. I may have to contact ups and see if they can either hold it in Anchorage for me to pick up there, or deliver it to my hotel there.

I set up UPS My Choice last summer since I was going to be out of town on the day of a delivery. It is free for packages to be held at a UPS hub for 5 days. There is a small fee to have it shipped to a new location or a UPS Store. It worked great for me and I picked the package up the next day when I returned. Another reason I'm glad I set this up is UPS now automatically sends me estimates for the time of day my packages will be delivered and it's been pretty accurate.

I have to say I'm really loving the Mini. It's light as a feather when compared to my iPad 3 and the size just feels all around better. Typing seems to be so much easier on it, too. The double speakers is a nice update, although I'm not sure if it sounds any different than my previous iPad. And, of course, the screen is beautiful!

The only thing i don't like is I got a 32gb, when my prior iPad was a 64gb. So I just logged into the Apple store and snagged a 64gb Mini Retina and will do an exchange tonight or tomorrow.

Thanks for the link. I also will be out of town and wasn't sure how to deal with it.

When you say the typing is so much easier do you mean typing with thumbs? Are you able to type with all fingers in landscape mode?
