Who's with me? Setting my alarm for 2:55. That leaves about 2 hours of sleep once I finally get to bed. Putting my computer to sleep and then ready to rock. 16GB iPad mini white and 32GB iPad 4 in black.

I'm in the fence. iPad mini or note2. I'm supposed to know but I don't. He who hesitates is lost.
I don't however comma think the iPad mini will sell out first night

Overslept and now stuck with a 2 week shipment on mini. Looks like I'll be going to the store on Friday. iPad 4th generation, not a problem.

Wow, they sold out of launch day minis a lot faster than I was expecting. I got my order in at 12:05 PST. You also might be able to get one at a Walmart at midnight Thursday night. That's how I got my iPad 3 so early last Spring. I got to the store to get in line at 10:45 pm and was out of there by 12:15 am. Not sure if you have one near you, though.

The black one is still available. I was going to get one but I was sitting there with the cart and I couldn't bring myself to spend the money on it. It was the weirdest feeling I ever had with a piece of electronics. Since I was that unsure I had to back away.

I never oversleep I use no alarm clocks
Anyone wonder if the black did not sell as well because of the so called "scuffgate" on the iPhone?
I actually like the black better but all my devices are white and the charging cables are white. OCD

I am also surprised at the fast sell out.

I'm guessing they just had fewer white ones available.
