ipad-pair-holiday-hero-xl-2013After a brief 3 hour downtime, the Apple Store is back online Retina Minis are available for ordering.

The 16GB WiFi-only models have ‘available to ship’ times of 1 to 3 day times, with larger capacities and cellular models showing 5 to 10 business days.

Of course you can always try your luck at an Apple Store or Best Buy in the morning, or guarantee you’ll get one of these little guys in 1 to 10 days by ordering online. The website is surprisingly speedy and I was able to complete my order in no time and my 32GB WiFi-only model shows an estimated delivery date of Nov 20 to 22nd by Standard Shipping.
