So, how long until physical stores have the new Mac mini in stock? I don't trust their website ordering after a past issue.

Next Wednesday according to the nice man at Harvey Normans, although they don't hold them in stock so they have to be pre-ordered. (I don't think I've ever seen a mini in stock at JB HiFi or DSE either for that matter).

Not real impressed by the lack of an optical drive, and not sure what I'll do with the 700GB HDD when I take it out and replace it with a 32GB SSD.

DSE mentioned/replied to me on Twitter that it should be this weekend or otherwise early next week.

DSE expects the new Apple hardware in Auckland tomorrow and Wellington on Wednesday, stands to reason it'd be the same for the other usual retailers.

I popped into the Noel Leeming "Computer store", after the guy eventually worked out what a Mac Mini _was_ he tried selling me the old one at full price (currently massively discounted on their web-page) and then looked awfully put-out when I explained that I actually wanted the newer model which would be cheaper anyway. Maybe they should've put out a staff memo.

This is a question that Apple and their suppliers are able to answer. Almost no one else knows for sure. Retail stores 'expect' stock but do not know for sure until it does or does not arrive.

Unless they've got details from their shipping company which is what the bloke was reading off.

Yoobee has them, 1 day delivery from website, and the store in albany has 1 x 2.5ghz left. New model, no where to shove a disc in, wtf, anyway, ordered mine.

FWIW I ended up getting one of the previous-gen units from Noel Leeming for $300 off while they were getting rid of old stock. Core2Duo is more than enough for what I need, and I'd rather have a DVD reader than the extra speed of the i5 or the relatively useless Thunderbolt port, so I'm happy.

Plus it still has 10.6 on it so I don't have to worry about incompatibilities with Lion :)

You should give Apple Online another go, just got a MacBook Air delivered in 2 days, and I've bought about a dozen times from them in the past all with no probs.

I'd rather buy from a physical store given that the prices are usually the same, then it's easier to solve issues in the unlikely case that there are any.
