Apple is sort of shooting themselves in the foot with this one. :/ First they apparently did not anticipate the demand

Trust me they know exactly what they're doing.


And now Target has stopped selling them until some future date.

The reason was that customers were using coupon codes and getting them for $450

and then they made a "typo" about the 8X superdrive which really is a 4X. :/ There are going to be some peeved people out there.

Apple will honor these sales.

And I can't say that I am pleased to have to wait an entire month to get my mini just because I ordered airport/bluetooth option. *sigh* But I still love Apple and I went to the Apple store to play with a mini and loved it.
