I've decided to buy an iPad mini  - but nowhere in Wgtn seems to have theWIFI version in stock. I notice the apple store will ship within 2/3 business days. Has anyone bought direct from them? Good? Bad? - Are they a NZ retaler so covered by the consumer guarantees act? 

I help authors publish their books -

Apple store has always been a good experience for me.
They will provide you with a tracking number so you can check where your item is.
Your iPad will be shipped from china most likely (depending on stock levels).

Cant go wrong buying from apple direct, 1 year international warranty.
If you do have issues with your iPad, just contact apple. Their customer service
is pretty good.

Bought from Apple online once, a Mac Mini. Ordered around lunch time, landed here next morning (of course YMMV).

Bought an iMac from Dick Smith here in Jville because it was discounted (sold the old iMac on Trade Me and bought the new one for the same price), didn't have a problem with this one either.

Bought from Dell online three or four times, never had a problem.
