iPad Mini pre-orders are live at the Apple Store so if you want to skip the chaos of lines and launch day zealots, it's probably a good idea to head over to Apple.com to place your order. Whip out that credit card and you'll be shipped a new iPad Mini between November 2-8 (at least, the Wi-Fi only models).
If you're buying an iPad Mini right now, let us know which model you're getting down below. Black or white? 16GB, 32GB or 64GB? Or maybe you're not getting one? If the store is still down for you, try the iOS Apple Store app. You can select your iPad Mini there. [Apple]
