    Just called apple uk (stands back awaiting incoming)

    As I was going to purchase an I pad mini for mrs t

    Conversation went
    me .have you an I pad mini 16 gb wifi

    Him no

    Me if I order one when will it arrive

    Him January. 9 ish

    Me what's the availability at apple shops

    Him best call the shop closest to you .:Angry:

    Me called local shop lakeside. [STRIKE][HI]furok[/HI][/STRIKE]. thurrock

    Him No sir we haven't any left

    Me will you have one tomorrow (Monday 09'00am)

    Him sorry don't no till we open the delivery box Monday am

    Me is it likely you will have one

    Him possibly but we don't know what's coming till it gets here

    me what time is delivery time

    Him don't know sir usually between 8 till 9 but not always

    Me do the lower price sell faster

    Him yes sir

    Me if I come up tomorrow at 9 is it possible I may purchase one

    Him possibly if we get some

    Me thanks have a nice day ( under me breff ?!! ,. Ar,e )


    perhaps ill buy a dressing gown and slippers :thumb::Cool:

    Thing is mrs t likes her pad 1 but the artheritis is making holding it harder

    Since handling the mini pad it is a lot lighter and just a little smaller

    Which would make life easier

    As she is not a techie by any stretch (she gets wound using sky hd)
    The mini pad is ideal for her needs
    Just have to wait till after Christmas

    Just thought a thread on what we didn't buy and a reason could be amusing

    Has she got a cover for her Ipad? They are less awkward than using them 'naked'

    I feel yer pain ! I looked at the mini a few weeks ago and compared to the bigger Ipad it is a delight to hold.

    I can't believe I am gonna say this............................but the Samsung Galaxy 7 in is quite nice too

    Even the Blackberry Playbook (bargain!)

    I think what matters most is what you want to do with it..................even as an apple user I have to agree that unless you want 'all the apps' then other tablets are available :Blush::Blush::Blush:

    I got the mini 16gb from John Lewis on line, you've got to keep your eye open for when they become available, I spotted it at 8pm on Tues night, it said more than 10 available, by the time I'd completed my online order they were out of stock again, I did click and collect and picked it up Thurs afternoon, it is a pleasure to hold. Sales rep told me Apple is the only product they sell that they have no control over what they receive, they just order an amount and they have no idea what they are receiving until the container is opened and they read the manifest.
    What he did tell me is they have committed to purchase all of Comets order, Comet will not receive any of their Apple orders because they have been asked to pay up front and they can't.

    Trouble is we are talking

    Super non techie

    Questions like where is the @ still fly

    I still grimace at the thought of her returning to an m/s puter

    Mac book is just about bearable

    When the Lappy came out

    Tuppence ( our little avatar dog) used to tremble and the air went blue

    So unfortunately it'll be an apple mini as she has the I pad 1 and can
    Meek it see life her way

    Thanks for the advice folks

    Probably after christmass now though

    May keep an eye on J Lewis though:thumb:

    We nearly bought a cappuccino in the Trafford Centre on Friday but stopped off at a Dolci Gusto demo in Debenhams on the way. I tried a latte and wife had a chococino. The coffee shop lost a customer. :Laughing:

    Purchased the 64 gb with cellular for Sue. Cannot do any documents unless you pay apple. Cannot transfer photos unless you pay apple. As an old IBMer who owned computer shops for years I hate it. Sue loves it. Go figure.:Rofl1:

    Try GoodReader, Evernote and Dropbox for the iPad. I use them on my Ipod and they make file transfer easy and GoodReader will read any Microsoft document :Smile:

    You are incorrect about the photo's tho, you can import direct onto another computer.
